Erin Jordan: Music

Medusa (lyrics)

(Erin Jordan)
This was the very last song recorded for the challenge. I did not intend on recording it. I thought I meet the 35 minute time requirement with only 8 songs and I was wrong. After recording and mixing all day I almost through in the towel. After a little break and some dinner I found the will to record one more song that I had previously written and had never recorded. This was it. It is the actual story of Medusa. The story is far more tragic and gritty than the version most people learn as children. Medusa was actually raped and impregnated by Poseidon. It's hard to think of her as a monster if you that.

This recording has more of a demo quality than the other more produced songs on the album. I am not thrilled with my mixing job either, but this is not the final recording of this song!
