ooooooo...spooky... I turned quite pale listening to this... The music is absolutely pro done apb!

The piano part where 'the bones began to dance' is brilliant.

And what fab job with the words Caroline. Your voice is perfect for such a narration. You would do great in a radio theatre:) The story here is captivating.

Super duper
I had the privilege of hearing the advance version of this because Eppy's been putting together his Halloween podcast. Very fine indeed, and a nice arrangement. I hope no badgers were harmed in the making.

:o)

Dance Mac-(mini)-abre! :o)

As a big fan of Caroline's wit and charm, it was great she had this excellent concept and offered to do this.

It very much makes the song her own (in my mind), I just re-arranged it to suit and added in some more special audio effects to help the imagination along etc.

Although not alfalpha, paddler or cameron standard,
I am quite proud of this combined effort.

Thanks Thor, Kenta, Rebsie/Eppy .. happy Halloween
kids ..and hang on to yer bones!!!

Mwahahahhhhaa .. ;o)

Gosh Caroline
you sound a little bit like Marianne Faithfull on this! Which is great. Fabulous, although perhaps a little bit scary for Children's music... Loved it!

woofer3 said 3392 days ago (May 6th, 2008)
god this is great-
it reminds me of some of Joe Meek's early productions with Sreaming Lord Sutch, if I may make one suggestion though I feel the voice should be up a little more in the mix as I felt the music though great was a little overpowering in places and I found myself having to really listen for the words. Mind you having said that my hearing is not as good as it should be anymore so maybe it's me. Whatever it's an excellent record.

it is for children
all children, young and old. it is wild music. the poetic reading is chilling. it is of a grave nature. until the end. it is a story with a twist of humour. it creates a smile. thank you. 0x0

oh hell
YES!!!!

This has got an almost Floyd thing going on in the intro.... Caroline's voice carries this like boney fingers digging into my skeletal structure! That's a good thing.... love when it picks up pace...that piano is an excellent addition..... cool track indeed.... spooky in an old Vincent Price movie kinda way with a glimpse of optimism.... which is then gone again like the fading light.... nice work guys!
