This is absolutely fantastic.

I don't know how you do it but you put out winner after winner.

All three of you should be extremely proud of this one.

Thanks, Scott. That JazzRock8thsJon soloist RT is a really nice one - it gets a little busy sometimes, so I had to take out small bits to get what I needed, but I really like the results...

I notice that with soloist guitars too. I'll keep the whole track when I take it to another DAW and just automate the volume areas where I want to use it. Otherwise, it does get busy leaving it on most of the song.

Another great song Floyd. I can realy relate to this song being a Florida native and dealing with many heart breaks through the years. I love break up songs. My wife gets mad at me because I write a ton of them even though we've been happily married for almost 6 years now. I giess after being broken so many times it's easier to write songs about pain than ones about joy. Anyways, great song. I cant wait to see what else you come up with in the new year.

Lyrics were written beautifully as well.

Such a great write. Timeless. The story you tell, it's always been that way. The heartbreak, the runner trying to escape it, and the sad truth is your hero could have stopped at any bar along that 28 hour stretch of 1800 miles and been just as lost and lonely. Your story is a universal theme that will drive a person to drink and be an anonymous fixture in a crowded room. It's strange how two people can set beside each other and both be alone.

A top notch write, arrangement, mix, production and performance by all. The quintessential Floyd Jane song.


I could say "You Make It Look Easy" ....

Floyd, working on that. I've always been involved in assisting others recordings/mixes mostly since I've never really written for myself. Trying to change that this year and hope to have something out in the next months. I've just had a hard time with writing..... hence: Writing Melodies - For the Creativity Challenged in the Songwriting Forum.

Great stereo separation! Those drums really kick! (lol) I would like to know more about them.

This is a great write! I just love the lyrics, especially the chorus - super write.

Someone once said, "it's not the story told, but the telling of the story". And you have given new life to well covered lyrical territory.

And Janice and Bud have added wonderfully to the joy of the groove!

Man, I always love your pacing. I always look at your lyrics as I hear the song for the first time. I'm am amazed at how many times the rhythms you pick are not in line with what I think they will be. For me, that's a REAL treat!

I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of how the song builds. It's powerful! The verse is great, the pre-chorus (if you call it that) is a nice step to the chorus...which then blows the roof off. It just soars in the best way.

Btw, this may be my favorite vocal from you. You sound great! I mean, I always think you are a really good singer, but "miles"...seriously nice tone my friend!

Now for another listen...

Thanks for sharing this!

Another exceptional delivery.

You really kicked-butt with this one. The build, the vocals (especially the vocals), the balance, that driving beat, absolutely everything about this is sensational.

You and the Merrit's nailed another one. No question.
