Josie, That guitar part does sound a little like Neil Young. It is part of a loop. The mando is a Real Track. Thanks for listening and commenting. Tom

This is just outstanding! Every time I hear your work, I think the same thing: "this is probably the best song I have heard from you". Here we go again. This is probably the best song I have heard from you (until I go back and listen to one of the older ones)! Janice really nailed the vocals. (No surprise there.) But this one does have a special quality to it. Very heartfelt, honest and extremely well done!

Other than all the above criticisms, I really like this one! smile

This has the air of Fleetwood Mac, with Janice in this key sounding like Christine McVie (or Christine Perfect as we knew her in the old days).

So professional and a real treat. Thanks to you both.

Great job of building the drum track. Bringing the flute back was a nice touch.

Perfect arrangement.

Janice - you have never sounded more like a star than you do on this song. holy cow! One of your best - among dozens of bests...

Tom, your harmony on this is a true standout, as well. Like Vince Gill behind Brandy Clark. John David Souther behind Linda Rondstat. The kind that you get so hung up on the you forget to listen to anything else going on. So you have to rewind...

But wait..

"I don't want your heart to feel anything like mine" - great line.

"it’s been so cloudy I can’t find my lucky star
No I won’t get my wish tonight"
....That's a why-didn't-I-think-of-that? line.

"Well You can accept the fact it was meant to be
Or keep on looking at the stars And end up just like me"
..... Great song development.

Top-tier write. I used to get to hear a lot of songs performed (by the writers) before they got to radio. And a lot more that were every bit as good as that - they can't all get there. Now and again, you'd hear one that you just KNOW would get there. This sounds like one of those.

floyd
floyd, Thanks so much for your continued strong support. Janice did a standout job on this. We appreciate your comments. Tom

Hi Janice and Tom,

I'm very very late in getting to this one. Apologies. I agree with floyd..."holy cow" x 2. I already thought you two were great before I listened! Now I'm awestruck! This is outstanding in every way. It's a great write, a stunning arrangement, magnificent performances and mixed to perfection. You have both accomplished something very special with this. Yes indeed... floyd was right... "holy cow" x 2.

Awesome!
Noel
