I really enjoyed the sound of this song! It really suited the title and had that old-timesy feel. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

That was fun. I learnt the song at school in the early 60s.
I reckon you'd do well to rerecord the vocals as the room effect of the mic places the voice above the mix - in another room as they say.
Cool backing.

Thanks for the advice. Recording and mixing vocals is not my strong suit.

I enjoyed your song... the little breaks added some extra spice to the production... only wished you had added lyrics.

TLMelvin, that was a fun tune that had a nice creative use of stops in it! The bass sounded great on those breaks! Thanks, Torrey

What a fun little tune! I love how cheerful it sounds. It has a wonderful groove, and is hard not to move along to it. I'm just imagining this sounding great in a live setting.

Great job and thanks for sharing smile
