Axel Mundi Music & Press: Audio samples

For Now

August 27, 2019

It is said that one George Gordon (of which there were many), when asked how much wealth he needed in order to consider himself rich, told an assembled group of his serfs: "I've got everything I need for now; and for now, that's everything I need." This odd statement attained almost cult status with George's contemporaries, to the point that it came to be thought of as the Clan Motto, until they were reminded that the actual Gordon motto was "By courage, not by cunning." This is the subject of another song.

Actually, this whole story was a tall tale. This is the only song on the album that does not mention anything Scottish (other than the instrumental number, where nothing is mentioned per se).

I've got everything I need for now,

And for now, that's everything I need.
