For fun, a slow-burn version of “Smile”, written by Charlie Chaplin, and based on the instrumental theme that he’d composed for his 1936 film, Modern Times. Inspired by Bob Dylan’s use of strings and pedal steel on his Sinatra album, Shadows in the Night, I’ve incorporated those elements, along with the usual curdled guitars.

Well… I loved it. A couple of weeks ago I watched Chaplin’s The Pilgrim accompanied by a full orchestra playing the restored soundtrack of the film. Pure magic. http://www.timothybrock.com/joomla/music/16-music/restored-scores/the-scores-of-charles-chaplin/22-the-pilgrim-1923-music-restored-in-2003-reduction-2004
Well… thanks, Mon! And I’ll watch The Pilgrim — thanks for the link…
