Wow, 10 days left. If I finish a song every day I'll barely make it. I'll keep this short.

Here's a great video from Day 7, when I had the string section from yMusic join me in the studio. You may recognize the music on it from Day 15's post.

Also, I picked out a section of music where almost everyone in my "band" is involved. Among the synths and drums and nonsense, listen for flutes, clarinets, trumpets, violins, saxophones, and yes, some falsetto by yours truly.

Conveniently, I think it sounds like a Friday. Enjoy...

As always, let us know what you think of the music in the comments section.
