As we enter 2018 I want to get back to the music I grew up on. I was going for a late 60's early 70's vibe in this. This came about when I asked my little grand daughter how old she thought I was and she said "about 80". I laughed but thought, I am looking old on the outside but on the inside I'm still a teenager! I guess I'm trying to prove it here! LOL

Very nice straightforward pop song, I really enjoy your young sounding vocals smile. Lots of nice George Harrison feel in chording and the guitar solo. Excellent overall production. Not just 60's or 70's vibe, I can hear also modern influences.

60's and 70's is the music I grew up on too. And yeah, you never feel old on the inside, funny how that works.

Great stuff Torrey, very commercial sound. I like the harmony guitars!

Cool tune Torrey. Can totally relate with looking old but feeling lick a teenager. Super vocal and backtrack. Excellent guitar as well. Excellent tone and effects. Chorus maybe octave pedal ???

As I listen to your song, I could say you seems a super teen-ager!!!
We are middle-aged but we are much younger than some today young people.

Very nice song. Great performance as usual.
I feel a bit of George Harrison's style in this song.

Happy new year

Sergio

I also am a product of 60 and 70's music. I grew older but I never grew up!

This is super all the way. Great backing tracks, super vocals and lyrics along with some great guitar playing.

This is a winner.

Super, Torrey!

A really nice pop write. Terrific melody - very catchy. Your vocals in this are excellent.

Super mix. Nice guitar work throughout. Great drum sound and a good punchy bass. Everything is well balanced. I hear the 60s/70s influences, but it struck me as having a Rundgren feel to it - I think he might be pleased to call this his...

Worth several listens.

Torrey,
I can hear the influences, but you have developed a sound which is instantly recognizable as your own and its showcased beautifully here.
You write really memorable melodies- this is one of your best.
Fantastic guitar, a high energy vocal and excellent mix... will head over to your cd preview.


Robert

Wow. That style sounds hard to do.
Very light, very bubble gum and very melodic. Smooth.
Cheers.

Thanks Scott for all the nice words! The guitar lead parts are just a lead line on one track and then I came back and played a harmony line on a second track with some distortion on them. Thanks, T

My thoughts too. I really enjoyed this. I always enjoy your vocals, they never get old to me.

You captured the 70's vibe really well. I can hear a lot of various influences throughout the song and that keeps my interest.
