I woke up one day with a tune in my head. Unsure if I’d written it or not, I rang my Dad and lilted it down the phone … he told me that he recognised some of it, so I’d better do some research. Unfortunately, it turned out the tune existed already, being the charmingly titled ‘The Cow That Ate The Blanket’. (That bloomin’ cow… it ate my compositional idea, as well as the blanket!! 😉 ) I decided to write a tune as a ‘thank you’ for Dad’s help – this time using a totally different compositional idea!
