Ever have a song get in your ear ...

...and you can't get it out? This happens to me most often when I'm working on a song, trying to get the melody and harmonic structure to stick. Earlier this week, I came a cross an arrangement of "Fly me to the moon" by Ted Greene, who was a phenomenal guitarist. After playing the song few times, I kept hearing the melody, singing it about the house and then digging out CDs with recordings of it ... a recording by Paula West on Verve is my favorite at the moment -- I love the way she plays with the melody.
