My wife and I are celebrating our 40th.

Here are a few of the reasons why...


LITTLE THINGS

you always know where i leave my keys
pick up my clothes, say "can't you please"
let me read the paper before you're done
hand me sunglasses, "don't squint in the sun"
letting me know when i cross a line
always reminding me to be on time
the little things that say you'll always be my girl
they make all the difference in the world
   
   the little things we sometimes don't recall
   the little things that make a big man fall
   you think they don't mean much
   but let me tell you girl
   the little things make all the difference in the world

it's the vitamin you make me take each day
the look i get for stupid things i say
that touch that tell me "it'll be all right"
that soft, sweet kiss in the middle of the night
the way you tease me 'bout that little bit of gray
how when you make up your mind there's nothing left to say
the little things let me know you'll always be my girl
they make all the difference in the world
   
   the little things we sometimes don't recall
   the little things that make a big man fall
   you think they don't mean much
   but let me tell you girl
   the little things make all the difference in the world



And here is the BAND:

floyd,

Congratulations to you and your wife!!!! That's an outstanding milestone.

As I'm typing this, I'm listening to "Little Things". It's definitely a song to be proud of... very easy-on-the-ears and very catchy, too. I don't know that I've heard "Thank you" said so well before.

May everything good come your wife's and your way,
Noel

Floyd,

I got goosebumps.

When a song is this good, there is not much to say. Every line is good. Every note is good. This thing is alive, it has an unstoppable heartbeat, it is country pop genre crossing majestic, unbelievably touching and perfect.

It feels like you took everything good and great about your talent and stuffed it into one moment of pure perfection.

I hope your wife gave you a hug.

I tip my hat, sir.

Amazing.

Now let me see if I can get to work and write one like it.

Classic. I'll share that your song "Little Things" is quite different of my tune from 1971 of the same name.

The devil is always in the details.

Enjoyed my listen.


Charlie

EDIT: My gracious, I overlooked your actual anniversary and reason for song.... Happy Anniversary

Man, just so good!
Your vocal is great on this and those perfect harmonies coming in at just the right time.....loved it!
Loved the track too, percussion part really worked well, and mix is top notch as per usual.
Congrats to you and your wife on your 40th!

Floyd, Man, WHAT A SONG!!! I'm pretty much incommunicado (vacationing in Costa Rica) but I had to put my two cents in here. This is so incredibly GOOD!! Such a wonderful heartfelt lyric, and music that is so sweet and pleasant to carry it along. I agree with David's comments-this song just knocks you out! On my laptop speakers, I can't appreciate the production as much as I will later but I had to drop the quick note of "Congrats" and SO WELL DONE!!!! Take care. Greg

I would also like to congratulations on your milestone. Your lyrics put a smile on my face. I have had a few moments like that as well with my wife. The vocal, harmonies and backtracks sit so tight together. I think when happens one can really experience the imagery in the song. Well done..

Wow! Amazing lyrics and great tune. The story is so heartfelt and the chorus tag line really pulls it all together. This actually brought a tear to my eye. Great Job!

Hi Floyd.

A super song and a wonderful tribute to your wife.

Many congratulations on your 40th from your friends and fans over here in (the original) York.

What can I say about the song, except that it's everything we've come to expect from you in regards to content, performance, production and sheer professionalism.

All the best to you both for the future.

Cheers, ROG.
