On to the Next Song….

Here are three versions of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells. During the process, I experienced writer’s block until I decided to just put one font in front of the other.

The entire song was 427 measures, many of which repeated. Now all I need to do is add some different instruments! Where can I find a Tubular Bell??

Tubular Bells

Many people think this is the “Theme from The Exorcist.” However, the album was recorded and released before the music for the film was even picked. The Director was in the offices of Virgin Records, looking for music for the film. He saw this amazing album cover and played what was inside. The rest is history.
