Week 31: Once I had a sweetheart, When I was in my prime, Let no man steal your thyme

Three more love-related songs for week 31, with a fairly heavy stress on loss and heartbreak. (But no death.)

Once I had a sweetheart is an old favourite of mine; I’m fairly pleased with what I’ve done to it here. Features a surprisingly loud zither, multiple melodicas and more than one drum track.

When I was in my prime and Let no man steal your thyme are both members of the “Seeds of love” extended song family. “Prime” features a melismatic pileup of flute and recorder; “Thyme” features the enormous pigeon that sits in next door’s tree.

Happy Easter!
