Tell Me Where

"Tell Me Where" was written for Ben and Lilly Gallina's wedding, the summer after my mom died. I wanted something that expressed longing and had been learning "Before the Parade Passes By", the wonderful song from "Hello, Dolly" composed by Jerry Herman. A second influence was the intro to "Let It Go" by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Richard Lopez from the Disney movie, "Frozen", with its minor to major inflection. And now that I step back, the song clearly owes a debt to "Over the Rainbow" by Harold Arlen (music) and Yip Harburg (lyrics)! This song was originally completely in C major/A minor and two nights before the wedding, as I drifted off to sleep I suddenly realized I HAD to begin the song in moody C minor and then open it up in the chorus to C major/A minor and modulate again to joyous Ab major in the bridge. The next morning I tore the song open and worked through it with the new road map and wrote it right down to the wire. Here's to you, Ben and Lilly!
