Ted Lucas – “It’s So Easy When You Know What You’re Doing”. I apologize for Said the Gramophone’s recent quiet. I was getting married. This was a whirlwind, a snowstorm, a carnival, but also a well-executed game-plan, a careful choreography, a fine scheme. There were bells, toasts, questions, answers, breakdancers, curries, flowers, slapshots, marshmallows, blindfolds, speeches, dancing to “One Thing” and “Sweet Thing”. I wore a blue suit. She carried a bouquet. We did our thing and then tumbled into another thing.
Ted Lucas isn’t singing about such a perfect love, here. Stuff is a little tangled, a little messed-up. Chicks, money, etc. But I think he felt the same thing as I did, when I was staring out onto a room full of friends – sometimes life is easy, sometimes being deliberate is perfectly simple, sometimes time unspools like a fine red carpet, a berry growing on a vine. Sometimes singing to the world is just as easy as singing to yourself. [buy]
