Dublin (21​,​787 / 1359)

from Amy Denio: PANDEMONIUM by Amy Denio / Spoot Music



Immersion Composition Society Session Sunday 26 April, 2020

First composition of the day.

Part of my ‘CITIES’ series; homages for places I’ve lived in the past. Dublin was one of my favorites; I got to live there when I was 16, and since I'm part Irish it was mostly a dream come true. The chords/melody are loosely based on the number of infected and dead measured in Ireland on the day I recorded the song. (21,787/1,359).


There once was a chemist from Dublin
Whose consumption of whiskey was troublin'
But the drink being Irish
was sure to kill the virus
So on most days his steps were stumblin’

Whiskey for the heart and
Brandy for the stomach
Warm plaster of Brooklime to cure that pesky cough
that's dry! unproductive! and sometimes fatal!

There once was a virus asleep
Which woke up, found new hosts, and settled deep
When it moved in it was silent
Until the wracking cough was violent
Now its hosts are mostly lying in a heap
