Yes, David likes this, and so do we!
We especially like the transition to the chorus ( like I commented on SoundCloud).
Nice work once again!

hey Floyd,

Di and I were wondering why this isn't on the radio ... then it dawned on us - it's too damned good! This sounds professional as anything out there. Great lyric, backing tracks and a splendid vocal performance. If it gets any better than this, we'd have to call it something besides a song. This is a bar of excellence that few, if any of us, will be able to approach.

BTW, we liked it!

Alan & DI

Well FJ, just like every one of your songs, this is my favorite wink I hope that doesn't water down my comments!

Anyway, this made me laugh...

Throw a Telecaster in there too and turn it up to 12.

Just once I wish DS could spit out what he's trying to say. It's always soooo vague what he's lookin' for wink

I have to admit, when I saw the title this was NOT what I was expecting. I may have been more along the lines of what DS was saying.

Anyway, this song is so cool. The semi-spoken part is fun, and that chorus! LOVE IT! It's catchy! Really, really catchy. I would be you walked around with it stuck in your head when you weren't working on it?

As far as production, I feel that may have been the tightest I've heard from you. I mean, it LINES up! I felt every instrument fit exactly where it should be.

Loved the grove. Love the changed between sections. Just a lot to keep the listener interested!

It's not my name, but you had me at "Mr. Snyder" wink

Cool stuff....

Lots of comments on the spoken verses.... I didn't see anything on the mods/de-mods throughout. I thought that was an excellent idea.

Well done.

floyd, The first thing that hit me is the sound of the drums and the overall clarity of the mix. The next thing is the modulations as mentioned by Herb. Great stops! The talking blues feel really adds to the story. It's like you're sitting next to me at the bar swapping lies and tall tales. Superb! Loved it! Tom

Someone throws down the gauntlet, and you turn into yet another perfect song.

Plus, you turn it up a couple notches more with the spoken word bit.

I've been schooled by fj again - and I love it. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Absolutely sensational Floyd, this is waaaay-up-there.

The contrasts between spoken verse and singing really give this marvelous dimension.

And everything is all wrapped up in a very impressive set of lyrics, and topped off with outstanding guitar work.

This is a best seller for sure.

Wow Floyd this is so different than your other tunes. There were so many part of the production that were unique. Well done. Super vocal and very creative lyrics. And the backtrack was superb...

Smokin' HOT FJ!
Super lyrics, arrangement, vocal, name it...

(If I was listening with you in person I'd be doing the Wayne's World "we're not worthy" salute after hearing this one. LOL!)

Laugh often and love much.

My favorite (only by a sliver) of three beautifully crafted choruses!! This is a top-notch write.....clever, fun, and catchy as heck. EVERYTHING works perfectly.

Not a word that could be better
Not a note out of place
That's the picture of UNCOMMON GRACE

Uncommonly excellent Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Greg - thanks for such a nice review. I especially appreciate that you made note of the lyric...
