Bodyjar - Five Minutes Away

For three of my posts in this series I wanted to record solo piano versions of songs that aren't covered by solo piano very often.  This exercise of figuring out a vocal melody and harmony and making an arrangement is something I get my first year university students to do- there's nothing better than working out a song you love.

The first one is by Australian group Bodyjar- I saw these guys play sometime in the late 90s at a tiny club in downtown Ottawa that doesn't exist anymore, the Liquid Monkey maybe?  It was a Wednesday night and there were not many people there, but I had a few close friends who got me into their first two records and it was a highlight for me to see them in person.  I can't imagine what an ordeal touring across Canada was at that time.
