Squirrel's Last Crossing

by William Ogmundson

Squirrel's Last Crossing was written as a joke, which turned into an actual song, which ended up getting far more applause in live performances than my so called "serious" songs, so I decided to release it, against my better judgement!

Album Notes
My music covers all genres and styles. I am classically trained, but perform and write new age/solo piano music primarily, as well as music theater, jazz and choral pieces. Squirrel's Last Crossing was written as a joke, but people loved it in live performances, so now it's a single, and will someday be part of my "Animal" album.

Just plain fun!
“Squirrel’s Last Crossing” is only forty seconds in length but what a vivid story it tells! In my imagination, it goes something like this:

Once upon a time, there was a little brown squirrel. Out of nowhere, he found himself in the path of a very large, very fast motor vehicle. A human was behind the wheel, making angry faces and loud honking sounds. The squirrel made it to safety and scampered merrily to and fro, searching for nuts to bury and bird feeders to raid and other furry friends to play with. Nearing the end of the day, as he ran back across the street towards his home, he crossed paths again with the big speeding car. But this time...

No spoilers here! But pianist William Ogmundson’s dissonant ending leaves little doubt as to the fate of our friend the squirrel. (And I am almost ashamed to admit that I laughed so hard there were tears in my eyes!)

This piece is spirited and catchy and just plain fun to listen to. Very highly recommended!

From MainlyPiano
"Squirrel's Last Crossing" is the newest solo piano single release from pianist/composer William Ogmundson. At 38 seconds, it's definitely the shortest single I've reviewed, but it is such fun and Ogmundson packs a lot of music (and notes!) into that short time-span! The first and last sections are composed in a style reminiscent of “Flight of the Bumble Bee” complete with the piano impersonating the sound of a variety car horns. The middle section depicts the squirrel’s confusion and attempts to get out of traffic (my interpretation), and the ending chord makes it obvious how the story ends. Ahhh, poor little squirrel! The cover artwork was created by William’s 9-year-old son, Tristan Ogmundson, and is the perfect visual to go with the music! "Squirrel's Last Crossing” is sure to bring a smile!!!
