The Minor Key

Some composers are drawn to it, for example.

Beethoven is the master of this key.
I don’t know if anyone has topped his musical eloquence.

But some sure do reach notes close to it –

Josh Homme, for example.

What a heavenly and tragic voice –
Simultaneously.

Really, really sad notes, but the kind you can’t resist listening to, over and over again.

At that point –
I put it on another sphere.

That’s pretty damn close to Beethoven.
