Hey,

Super cool song! really, really liked it! Those soft background harmonies are perfect and that piano is over top good.

Totally loved it. I'm still trying to get over the flue (not much success yet frown ). It's a real effort to tap my feet but they just won't quit! loved the harmony at the end and the video is funny as heck!

Merry Christmas.

Alan

Rob,
Good fun. Well sung as yours always are and, as Al says, great piano and those harmonies really make the ending.
Having done yard work today and just now a pile of dishes, I feel qualified to sing along to this!

Great job Rob! This is definitely a toe tapper, and wonderfully catchy as well smile The piano in this is definitely an earworm. This is the kind of tune that can easily get stuck in your head - not a bad thing!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Rob,

This might be my favorite of yours. Super well done.

The lyric works perfectly for this style of "early rock" song.

The mix has exceptional clarity. The drums are super. The bass is clear and strong. The piano is bright and present. The vocal sits perfectly in the mix. The arrangement/production is well thought out.

A great listen.

Hard to add to what fj wrote.

Sounds like it would fit on "The Best Of..." album from the early to mid 60's.

The entire production and vocal performance nailed that feel.

Kudos!
