Love the intro and the title made me chuckle.

What did you do to the bass at 2:06? It pops more here. In a good way.

solid write and the chorus works really well.

You just have to love that baritone guitar

Great song!

A nicely written and performed song. Caught bit of Dylan in the bass and acoustic.

Good stuff.

Lawrence,

Thanks. Good ear - I pumped the volume on the bass a bit to give it some additional push.

Another great one Bob. You have such a distinct artistic sound.

There are a lot of memorable hooks int his song, especially those guitar parts.

Excellent use of effects--but not overuse. Well done!

Really enjoyed this, Bob.

It has a nice "pop-y, peppy rhythm" to it that works well. Catchy. A good vehicle for your thoughtful lyrics.

Nice instrumentation. Good mix. I really like your vocal in this - it has a little bit different sound than anything previous... a clarity and "presence" - excellent.

Bob, I also smiled at the title. Your voice sounds great on this one. The tremolo infused baritone guitar works like a charm. Good arrangement and mix. I really enjoyed the feel of this. Tom
