colly,

A really nice song - well done. It has a very cool sound overall...like a song that we might have heard on the radio in the early '70's (or late ''60's).

Nice grouping of instruments (you might want to list them so that others could know what to use if they want to create this sound). Well mixed. Well sung.

Nice job. Enjoyed the listen.

Colly,

Welcome back.
A good song with nice reflective lyrics and a really catchy chorus.
Your vocals sound strong and the harmonies work well.
Yes, please let us know which instruments you used - the guitars are great.

colly,

Very enjoyable. I really like the collection of instruments you've used to create your 'band'.

In addition, your songwriting is a credit to you... the melody and lyrics fit together really well. Your performance, arrangement and production also shine. You definitely sound like someone who's been doing this for a while!

All the best,
Noel

Colly,

Definitely a song from the late 60's early 70's
I too would like to learn of the instrs used but apart from that I really enjoyed.
A boy-band wearing tartan could have done/mimed your song and the girls would have been a-screaming uncontrollably grin

Colly,

A very enjoyable song with an anthemic quality to it.
I can imagine everyone waving their cigarette lighters to this one at a Colly gig.

Loved your vocals and all the guitars.

Nice one,
Jez

Awesome song, Colly. I love how the drums build up in the chorus, that's a really nice touch. The whole vocal performance is amazing too -- it'd be great to see a lyric sheet! (Ps. love the track art that you chose!!)

Colly,

Cool arrangement and vocal captures the nostalgic feel.
Seeing the lyrics would be nice - I missed some of the words.

Enjoyed it!

+1 on that track art.

(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
