Ghost Melody

Album: released as a single (2016)
  • songfacts ®
  • Running to around 4 minutes 29 seconds, "Ghost Melody" must be in the running for a Guinness Book Of Records entry for the most-awaited followup single. It was released in January 2016 at which time guitarist Geert Fieuw told Rock And Media Photography their previous single "Shades Of Blue" was released 25 years ago!

    That claim may be a slight exaggeration because the Discogs database lists a later release, a 3-song EP from 1997.

    Whatever, written in waltz time, "Ghost Melody" has a classical feel to it and is more than a little enigmatic. >>
