Named for the chain of chords used here which travels entirely around the cycle of fifths, changing the chord root for every chord. I was mighty pleased with it after I composed it. Then I spent the next hour searching for a melody to fit the progression and discovered how constrained I was by a progression that moves as quickly as this one does. The title memorializes the problems I had writing it. Composed in the Spring of 1996.
