Hi Josie, my thought was "____ing a song. ____ing a song, alternating with a standard kind of longer content line. It's a beautiful song but I thought this might give some room for another thought in the chorus and break the pattern up. Take care. Greg

Hi Dan * 2 (DannyC and Dani) - Thanks listening and for the nice comments.

DannyC - I am looking forward to seeing your show on the 29th.

Dani - I have a new song for you. You will need to come and see my show on SJ again sometime and I will play it for you.

Greg - Thanks for the clarification. I see what you mean. It probably would have worked better and I will try next time.

Hi, Joanne -

I really enjoyed this song. And the ending was great with the handclaps. Sounds like you got some inspiration from "Good Morning Starshine". I'm glad you later this and I love the integration of the video elements on the YouTube video.

Hi John. I had forgotten about "Good morning sunshine". I love that song! It is a very great compliment to have my song compared to that one.

Hi SD - Thanks for listening and for the kind comments. Much appreciated.

Hi Joanne...

We've been off the site for a while, but back...at least off and on...now.

To be able to capture the essence of a culture that's not widely considered avante-garde make the presentation so compelling is a tribute to your skill and insight. The video was wonderful! And your song is so danged good! We were moved by this piece of music. Congrats on a super job! Best to you...

Al & Di

Hi Josie,

What a wonderful visual and aural journey.



I agree with floyd, there's no hint of "aspiring" anywhere in any of your songs. Your work is excellent.

Just heading back for another listen ...

All the best,
Noel

P.S. Apologies for taking so long to get to this. I'm really glad that I didn't miss it.
