Challenged by David Newitt to ...

Challenged by David Newitt to write something other than “another beautiful waltz tune”, Patti wrote The Jig Is Up, with a nod to David’s tune, Changing Lights.

The name Changing Lights arose from a story only the composer seems to find very amusing: Friend was driving through San Francisco with her boyfriend. Stopped at a red light, she had to look away from the road, so asked, “Tell me if the light changes”. After a moment’s thought he replied, “Yes, the light changes”. Said she, “Grrr”. Light turned green and they proceeded to the next light, which turned yellow, then red. Said he (in voice of wonder), “Wow - this one changes too!”
