Excellent! Loved the 'simplicity' of the song construction -- a few nice, crisp 'message' lines, then repeated chorus lines. Really liked the vocal and the vocal harmonies. I think I remember this from when it was first posted (?), but I'm glad to have listened again!

Hi Josie ...

Love it! That bass line really drives this and moves it firmly yet gently. As always, your vocal is splendid. The organ to the right and guitar to the left are a perfect balance. And the message is, indeed, so appropriate for the time in which we live.

So nice to hear another one from you ... and a really nice video for an extra bonus. Loved it ... seriously, I did!

Best to you and please be safe ...

Alan

Josie,

Very nice to hear from you again.
Wonderful R&B song!
You are a really great singer.
The sound similar to Earth Wind and Fire is a lot of fun.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

A good production and message and your voice is a pleasure to hear.

I played 'Walking Streets of Gold' and enjoyed it as well.

Take care.

That is a creative vid that really brings home the message in a cool manner.

We love the breaking news graphic in addition to others. Well done!

Regarding the audio ... here's what we said two years ago and holds true to us today.

"Outstanding Josie!

"It's a Pop Soul upbeat positive message love one another song."

Your description was perfect.

"The whole thing harkens back to Motown. Sounds like an early record from Diana Ross and the Supremes - a radio song."

floyd nailed our feelings. Motown indeed!

The open, air feel of the production is a perfect was to carry your fine vocal. No need to parse it out. it's a great production...everything worked well for us!

Kudos!"

Terrific stuff...vocal, melody, backing & message all to the point and on point.
The constantly flying stars & bars don't work for me as a non American - no shock there. In Australia using the flag in that way would be seen as poor form but it's a totally different concept, culture and meaning in the USA.
That said I think the rest of the video elements were ACE, clever, amusing and well done.
Top stuff and I have my fingers, thumbs, arms, eyes, legs n feet crossed for success and a successful rebuilding of those things so sorely missed.


Cheers

Josie, I've always enjoyed your work. This is no exception. Excellent clarity in your mix. Great job.

This song has a smooth 60s feel.
