Description
Since after my last song, I seem to be in train mode, this is a tune I did a while ago in my first six months here when I was still experimenting with the keyboard. I'd forgotten all about it until I came across it in my I-Tunes, so I took it through Ozone and decided to post it again.
I don't know why, but when I tinkle on my keyboard I come up with Italian sounding melodies oftener than not ( probably from my sub-conscious) and this is one of them. At first I had mental images of those wonderful fountains in Rome, but as I added the up tempo beat I visualised a midnight train hurtling it's way through the Italian countryside and all the towns and Cities with the wonderful architecture, fountains etc. and with memories of all the dramatic history of Rome. So This is my interpretation of the midnight express train to Rome. Didn't know which genre really.

Mantovani meets euro-disco!
With a bit of Blackpool Tower in there as well.

Another unexpected turn :-)

Yes, I can see that train hurtling south. Great melody and as you say, very Italian (1960s films come to mind)

Just off to open that bottle of Frascati and break out the olives!

Cheers

Dick

Although
it was played mainly on one track with a GB synth, a lot of people say it sounds like an organ, but I don't hear that at all... to me it just sounds like a full orchestra, but hey, what do I know LOL.... thanks a lot Dick.... appreciate you calling in, cheers M

Rome...
Big cathedral sound...big pipes flushing the melody line with pomp and splendor, while the drumz and bottom roar like twin subway trains in opposite directions crossing paths
(on different tracks of course) you energy is inspiring here, making me concider a new direction...hmmmm...in the meantime, I'll catch this train to Big Smile City...all aboard!...:):):)peace

Appreciate
that description Erin (different tracks Ha Ha ha!) There's certainly plenty energy... in fact I've got shingles at the moment, so I think I'd better have some of that energy back LOL..... don't you dare go in a different direction, i like what you're doing just fine, regards M

Yes
I can visualise being on a train hurtling down to Rome, a good description Maurice.
You can certainly tinkle on that keyboard, lovely melody and playing.
Very much enjoyed.

Really pleased
it comes across that i can play the keyboard Bob, because I'd only had it a couple of weeks and was /am still doing my best with one hand per track... I must say I like those Italian 'big' melodies though, so I'm glad you found it here, cheers M

Movement
Lush sound emotes a verdant countryside
rushing past, punctuated by the rhythms of the rails
like water rushing down a stony hillside
to a cool, tranquil pool that is
the ultimate destination

Love those
descriptive words Abraxas; so glad you came aboard and found the tranquility, though the tranquility seems only to be at the end when the train stops LOL.... thanks again, regards M

The Eternal City
Hall Caine wrote a very excellent novel which became a play. This music fits the story well. The Eternal City a magnificent Love Story based on the Out right call for 'Justice for The People!' Fantastic Musical Piece my friend!

Exuberant.
You've given us a whirlwind tour of this fabulous city. Would fit in well in a Fellini film.
Cheers,

Rome Express
Very nice melody. In fact the melody seems so perfectly suited for your voice and vocal style I was surprised you didn't sing on this. Not that it doesn't work as an instrumental. Makes me want to try one of those train rides through Italy.

Giving the
voice a rest on this one Andrew as i don't think I'd have enough breath LOL.... glad you like the melody and I'm sure we'd all really enjoy a ride through the Italian countryside; always looks fab in films etc., thanks again, regards M
