Thanks to GarageBand, I
have now reassembled the various musical components of "Smile" into a
form that, to me, captures what I expected to hear when the album would
have appeared in 1967. It's exhilarating, like solving the toughest
puzzle ever created.
I'm a tad nervous that I've become
obsessed with "Smile." But I gotta tell you, there are a lot worse
musical compositions to get obsessed over. Over and over the crow cries
uncover the corn fields.
