Hi Floyd and Noel. I remember this from when I first joined the forum. I remember being so impressed with what could be achieved using this fantastic software. Still love it.

I've really enjoyed revisiting this one. I think it was the first co-write I did on the forum... Thanks for bringing it back!

floyd,

I enjoyed coming back to it, too. I really enjoyed co-writing with you back in 2012 and when I reassembled the song just recently over the last couple of months, it was a bit like reliving the earlier experience! Thanks for then and for now!

By the way, I notice that Bud has drawn attention to your 'Gene Kelly' line. His comment paralleled what I thought the first time I heard it smile

All the best,
Noel

Too much fun (but that's okay!) and a lot spark. I enjoyed this from first note to last. Great collab!

This version is ace - country swing with a little rockabilly lilt.
This would also sound great with a more rockabilly push to the rhythm.
VERY cool.

We will have to find and listen to the original which no doubt will be very good. All of us hope to achieve "sonic growth" over the years but when you start out with your talent it's a lot easier to achieve!

Everything sounds superb to us...the RT choice, the arrangement, the write and vocals.

And that Gene Kelly line in the first verse was super cool.

WTG guys!!

J&B


J&B,

Thanks for taking a listen. Much appreciated. floyd introduced Gene Kelly into the song. Like you, when I first heard it, I thought pretty much the same thing. With those two words, a whole heap of images unfolded for me. That was one of the lessons I picked up on the journey.

Thanks again for dropping in. It's always good to see you.

All the best,
Noel

Two thumbs up on this fantastic collaboration.


Hey Mario,

Thanks for the thumbs... both of them smile

What a catchy, fun song! I really enjoy the sound of this one. The lyrics feel very inspired, and I think this is a mix totally worthy of 2017. laugh

Great job and can't wait for more!

Shuffle beat is very pleasant!
Vocal and Lead guitar are also very nice.
As Robert said, I also haven't heard the original, but can't come up with any improvements to be made on this mix- it is so crisp and clear.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.
