Now That You're Out of My Life (I'm Out of My Mind)
Peter J Stein
As an after-realization, this melody uncannily combines the Drifter's "Save The Last Dance For Me", and Jay Black's "Come A Little Bit Closer", illustrating the synthetic processes of the mind, whereby new melodies are created by simple shifts of phrases.
The creation of original songs follows an unpredictable pattern: melody, lyric, form, and rhythm emerge spontaneously, in different ways, at different junctures, with different emotions, changing patterns dramatically for each new song. Imagine someone happily cooking a meal, with an abundance of choices and ingredients, feeling one's way towards an as yet unseen, unfelt, unknown surprise of combined elements, forming unique, stand-alone, self-contained experiences, reflecting hidden aspects of the creator.
