Every once in a while, we do a song for all the English majors out there. This one -- a 1972 composition called "Jugband Song" by the legendary David Bromberg -- is a favorite warmup tune for The Flood. In fact, we put it on a CD a dozen years ago, and we've been playing it ever since. Now, for our friends in the English Department, the song lyric opens with a lot of cool water imagery and four (count 'em, four!) back-to-back similes, commenting on the subject's eyes, lips, body and soul. Check it out.
