Millions of Windmills

easy come and easy go
a wind of change is coming around
what's again it wears you down

hundreds of windmills in the skies
blow away and blow your mind
hundreds of windmills in your eyes

windmill points the world turns around
here is your peace here is your mind

thousands of windmills in the skies
blow away and blow your mind
thousands of windmills in your eyes

on the wind the windmill sends
blowing away the sanity
all is safe

a million windmills move the sky
and you want to protect them all

millions of windmills in the skies
blow away and blow your mind
millions of windmills in your eyes
millions of windmills in the skies
millions of windmills in your eyes

Nice tune Vic, has 70's vibe all over it, my bad memory won't allow me to remember the influences, not that that is important, LUV that solo as well...

Cool atmosphere
ominous, with good vocals. Reminds me of The Kinks a little bit, though I'm not sure why. Maybe the vocals. Not enough Don Quixote references in the lyrics, though. Very good song!

thanks ben
i don't think there really is a story, i think it was more of a imagery. i had thought of a don quixote approach, but i didn't think there was enough room to get a real story going on this piece

like your vocals and backing vocals Vic. A nice riff and tone on your guitars, a great solo too with a very atmospheric vibe to the whole song, sounds great. An excellent track with a great production.
Very much enjoyed.

Nicely recorded ... great guitar sounds !! ... bass ihas a good tone and sits well in the mix. Cool synth work and sounds like you put a lot of thought into the drums. Well sung and a well composed trippy tune.
... and I like your graphics

This is cool. It has a 60s psychedelic sound to it. That solo section fits in really nicely. Nice changes. Production sounds very pro. Excellent job.

Great work Vic
More sophisticated 60s for me. Early Floyd psychedelia.

Masterful production!

Complex...
You have a lot going on in your accompaniment and it is interesting (on the second listen) to follow some of those lines. All of THAT is important to your overall production, one that comes of as masterful because of the details. AND you have created quite a sinister number, too, full of dark shadows and strange phantoms. All that crazy guitar work around 2:15 and following is really quite wonderful...as are the lead licks around 3:00. (Nit: I wish I could understand the lyrics better without having to read them. But I have trouble with lyrics on just about everything, so take that with a grain of salt.) I enjoyed this number a lot.

Brilliant lead. Man you come up with cool ideas for lead guitar.
The effects are sweet.
Plus the way you change it up is awesome (2:40).

Hi Vic. Doing a bit of catching up after being away for a while. Coming back to your music makes me feel like I was never away. The trademark VH sound and vocals are welcome and the guitar work is stellar, as always. A fine post. Regards, Peter.
