Interesting all the way through. Good stops. Great Rock Yell!!!
Nice hot solo. Nice vocals and the harmonies are well done.

The ending is super cool.

You put a lot of work into this - and it shows!

(I would have liked the drums to be louder)

Great job. Enjoyed it!!!

+1 Exactly what I was going to say. Good Job! Tom


Thanks Tom,
Compliments from you guys make me feel humble (and very proud) smile

Rob and Anne-Marie,
Thanks for commenting! See/hear you soon!

And the repetition of the title throughout the song makes for a VERY catchy "get stuck in your head" kind of groove. But I have to admit, there were moments when I started to fear that two lines in I had already heard all of the lyrics. Glad it didn't turn out that way. It worked very well!

I also really like the energy you managed to infuse into the song, and the live feel you introduced through the callouts and your selection of real tracks

I'm not as enthusiastic about the ending as everybody else seems to be. It's creative and different (which I like) but it also seems unnecessary and anticlimactic to me. But go with the majority on this one. I think the song is an extrovert's anthem, and I'm very much an introvert who is ready to leave long before the party's over. So it makes sense that being pulled back in the door by a faux ending would leave me feeling caught as I tried to sneak out early. wink

All in all I liked it very much, especially the energy and ear worm.

Hi Pat,

always love your input because you go beyond the song, and that is what I try to do in most of my songs. Though you wouldn't say this with this kind a song huh? Lyric-wise, English is my third language (first dutch, than french). When I write in English it will be less subtile as I have about 20% of the average vocabulary. But a song like this is great fun making, and I'm glad you liked it to. And the Austin Powers ending... Ah well, when I go... smile smile smile

PS
The next post will be instrumental, and another side of me...

Hi Fred,

It's a neat song. Big smile on my face throughout. 7 vocals! Really effective use of the vocal tracks as backing tracks.

This is absolutely fantastic!

I Loved everything about this. That infectious beat, great vocals and lyrics and without a doubt one of the best endings that I have ever heard in these forums!

This is a keeper.
