so the story is that one of the dudes in my band wrote a song and while the riffage is sweet parts of the song odly enough sound like circus music.

My question is what mode would circus music fall in to, in general. Id like to take that and use it to edit the song in such a way it doest loose its essence but drops the circus feel. Were a hardcore band btw.

Bill: Shut up, Ted.
Ted: Remember when she was a senior and we were freshmen?
