Before we go all crazy though, I present the final episode which is entirely made up of submissions from some very eloquent lovers of music.
I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the great many contributors who took the time to record something for Consequential Lyrics. In random order, these people include:
Andy Hazel (writer/musician, Bressa Voe)
James Anderson (blogger/podcaster, Appetite for Distraction)
Jerry (blogger/podcaster, Red Red Wine on a Sunday)
Marcella Wright (musician/blogger, The Life Degustation)
Neave Merrick (musician, Automatic Writing)
Simon Knight (audio engineer/musician, Lung U P C)
And of course, a big thank you goes to the artist who did a superb rending of the Consequential Lyric logo, White Tiger Grafiks! I'll do something special for you all one of these days, I owe you bigtime.
Of course, thank you for reading, listening and engaging with Consequential Lyrics. It's been an especially rewarding project, combining all my favourite things: lyricism, sentimentality, meaning, gushiness. It's been fantastic.
What's been your favourite episode? And if you're yet to declare one, what's your consequential lyric and why? And how would you fancy a Series 2??
