Timely, and sadly ... too often true.

Right on!
Loved the selection of RT's, and the organ solo.
Your vocal was nice and clear--necessary when you have a lyric that has 'jokes' laid in. Well done!
"eyes than the top of your head"...great line! this representing a real problem in your own life, or are you making a cross-generational comment??

Ha! Thanks for the nice words. I find myself sniffing at diners who are locked onto their devices... and yet I'm sometimes guilty of that too. But of course the singer is a character who's not quite me. Much nicer, probably...

I really liked this! Really cheery, upbeat, and fun smile Your vocals are really on point, especially given the subject matter. You very clearly enunciated, and I don't think I missed a single word.

Great job, and thanks for sharing smile
