The Sound of the Moment - Avi Buffalo 'What's In It For?'
This piece gets a rating of ★★★★ in my iTunes library. The lyrics are just lovely. One particular line did it for me; 'You are tiny and your lips are like little pieces of bacon'. Isn't that just lovely. His voice is also lovely. I think lovely is definitely the best way to describe it. The only thing I have against the song is that it's just a tad too long. A bit like Dylan's 'Mr. Tambourine Man'. It just doesn't need to be five and a half minutes. It's all in the first three. The Byrds managed to do it in two thirty. Avi Buffalo should have done this.
