Untrained Melodies: 12 short stories inspired by the songs of Chris de Burgh
   So, you may be asking, why the title of 'Untrained Melodies'?
Well the 'Untrained' I got from Chris de Burgh's hit song Spanish Train and, as I've played around with the content a little of all the songs that I've chosen here as inspiration, Untrained seemed to fit ideally. As for
the 'Melodies', I've tried to be as rhythmic as possible in the writing of the Tales, so as to mirror the natural tempo of the original melodies.

This despite the fact that the Tales are derived from, rather than based upon, the original songs themselves. I have tried to bring my personal interpretation to Chris de Burgh's work and I hope that you - his fans - will be as pleased with the results as I am.
