I’m In The Mood, John Lee Hooker.

I feel it is only appropriate to provide a link to this video as it inspired the lyrics to my piece, much in the same way that Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf “inspired” the lyrics to a vast majority of Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones’ back catalogue. The lyrics for my piece had been written and established in my own mind but I wanted to do this piece as a newer form as I feel it’s best to let songs develop over time. Taking this piece back to a blues root lyrically felt more natural as opposed to the forced feelings that the original lyrics held.
