A few weeks ago, I wrote a fun piece on which album that you wish you were at sessions for. The answers were fun to read, and enviable. But I’ve decided to delve a little deeper into the original concept by asking the bigger question of “Which album or work do you wish you were inside the head of the composer for?”.
On my return from Texas, where I visited my awesome granddaughter, I played the soundtrack for Cinema Paradiso. As some of you will know, I’m fascinated by the works of Ennio Morricone. And while I love many Rock albums, it is the creation of Cinema Paradiso that I wish I were inside the head of Ennio Morricone during its creation. Further, I would like to have been attached emotionally so that I could feel the range of emotions as he created that beautiful collection of extraordinary compositions.
Yes, I could go further to select several more classic albums. One is to have been inside Pete Townshend‘s head during the making of Quadrophenia. Or John Lennon‘s head during the making of ANY of his solo works. Or (AND) Roger Waters‘ head for Animals. My list could go further. But for now, let’s see which heads you’d like to have been in for the creation of albums (or individual songs).
