Song of the Day - Day 480

Today's song is...

Rocket Ship

Can I just say how glad I am that the chorus here was removed to be recycled in Spiraling Shape? It fits so much better and it's such a great melody. I enjoy the synthesized melody in the verses, but it seems a bit incongruous with the chorus. And I think the chorus is happier in SS (by which I mean the the melody enjoys being in that song more, not that the chorus has a happier mood). But I really appreciate the fact that both songs exist and are available allowing us to see the evolution of an idea and a melody across songs and lyrics. It's all part of the song writing process and ever so cool to think about.
