Questions for Mother

Today's waltz is a lovely song from The Wall, the one that gives us the heart of why a wall had to be built in the first place.

Nowthis piece is not entirely in triplemetre, but the chorus is. Another song thought ofasa waltz, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, has the same condition where portions of it are in waltz time and portions are not.

To me, the graceful nature of waltzes permeates all of this song. And that's enough for me.
