Cool vocal on this. Heart-felt.

I have to take your word for the Adele song as I have not listened that song in its entirety.

Thanks re the vocals, I orchestrated the flab four and that took sometime.

So glad you enjoyed

Happy Christmas to you and your family

Thanks Rob and Anne Marie,

The flab four hit that spot when I first heard the harmonies together. I shall definitely use them again, if I can keep them out of the fridge grin

thanks for listening

Thank you,
there is more of an intimate brain connection between pen and thoughts, it wouldn't have worked with today's technology

thanks for listening, so glad you enjoyed it

All the best wishes for Christmas

Yes, yes. Groovy and a really cool song!

It definitely has the rare quality of the songs from those British invaders:) Complex, but also down to earth? Hard to describe. All I know is I like it, a lot!

This is my favorite one from you thus far.


Wow Mario, thanks
Yep less is certainly more sometimes and the harmonies were also on the 1st chorus for a while but then hit the spot at the end.

Thanks for listening
Hope you unseasonable weather continues and you and yours have a relaxing Christmas together.

yup telephone is a word from the past grin but "give us a bell" or that partially clenched hand sign with the thumb and pinky outstretched didn't really translate to this song LOL

Glad you enjoyed and that I made you laugh.

Hope you all have a good Christmas in SA!

All the best

Thanks Peter, glad you enjoyed

I'd like to hear your telephone song
Somehow "Telephone Line" by ELO sprang to mind then

I hope you have a good Aussie Christmas

So glad you enjoyed, Scott, and I hope you have a great Christmas

I like the bare-bones style..... just a vocal and guitar.

The vocal choir effect took me by surprise.

A good start to the weekend. Have a good one yourself, my old Welsh pal.

Yes it does make sense!

And the harmonies? Wow -- just amazing.

A signature style is a helluva asset for a musician
and you have it in spades.

Great production and we much enjoyed the spin.

Simplicity at it's best! Just goes to prove that often, less is better than a lot. Liked the vocal harmony! Super job, Alyn! Best to you ...

Herb,

Thanks for dropping by and I am glad you liked this song.
The vocal choir was all me, no Melodyne or anything. It took some time to get it right and I am glad you enjoyed it.

All the best for Christmas
