A cheesy throwback to a simpler time.
This adorable song tells the story of make-believe under an apple tree, or at least, a request for a girl to accompany the singer into the lands of make believe under an apple tree. The song is mostly made of harmonized, doo-wap vocals, minimally accompanied by a soft guitar and a couple players of the "mouth kazzoo" (give it a listen and you'll know what I'm talking about). The song sounds a little bit like alt-folk artist William Oldham, aka Bonnie Prince Billy, or even certain songs from storyteller-rockers The Decemberists (who happen to be my favorite band). The harmonies could use just a little bit of tweaking to get them just right, but all in all, the song is a wonderful and warm flashback to childhood, or a pre-Information Age Americana in which entertainment was created in backyards using nothing more than imagination. Thanks for this, David.
