Interesting song theme, and a great presentation.

I liked the 'urgency' that you captured so well.

Harmonies worked well, too.

Interesting concept for a song and really nicely executed.
Reminds me a bit of The Cars.

Great title and the song has a sort of 50's teenage feel to me.
Good fun. Cheers.

Rode my share of Greyhounds in the 80's and lived to tell. This is an interesting song/lyric! Interesting rhymes ("for her" and horror"-probably never been done before) Dusty did a great job on the vocals! Very cool! Take care. Greg

Thanks for all the great input! "So, where was she?" Doesn't really resolve, does it? In real life, she was on the next bus. OR...COULD have been. smile

After some consultation, the "for her"/"horror" rhyme is listed in online rhyming dictionaries, which I doubt the lyricist consults, but honestly can't find an example of its use on Google. So at least rare, if ever done before. Lyrical easter eggs are often tucked in his lyrics...

REALLY appreciate it!
