Description
This was my first very rough attempt, on 10/26/2004, to set Sonnet 18 to music, a brilliant idea of Dadai (Jack Miller). I mistakenly uploaded my vox-only bounce. Jack wanted me to upload the bounce that has my horrid guitar noodling in background. I will upload that one, too.

We (Postludes Trio) eventually came up with a nicer, more musical soundtrack. See MacJams user Postludes Trio for our final collaboration. http://www.macjams.com/song/50339

Lyrics: William Shakespeare (Sonnet 18)
A cappella vocals: Richard Schletty

Lyrics
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed.

But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee
