Honestly enjoyed this, one or two of the posts referred to Dick Van Dyke dancing to this,

YES I definitely watched that Movie while listening to Summer Moon.


Great write and Vocals, and a mind journey like no other.

P.s. Made me a wee bit jealous , as I think you guys are just coming in to summer as we leave... I think ?.

As so often with your compositions Janice was moved to tears early on...tears of joy.

One listen through and she commented on how much she loved the melody and your vocal pointing out the "And when you sprinkle the world with moonlight from high in heaven ." And you singing slightly different each time is right in her wheelhouse smile

The harp worked great and the harmony at the end was an excellent touch.

As I type Janice just said, "Paul McCartney might steal this song!"

All of this and wrapped up in a very nice production!

Kudos!!!!

J&B

I love the way this song lifts my spirit and carries my heart along. All the little production touches. I've always heard it said that positive songs are always the most in demand because they are hardest to write. You have a wonderful gift Noel.

Hello, Noel

Very good song!
Very positive and uplifting!
Your lyrics are always very easy to understand for me who is not a native speaker of English.
Your vocals sung in a humming feel really fit this song.
When Japanese people make such a song like this, the image of a solitary traveler tends to come to the fore, but your song is very different.
It is happy and very pleasant.
It is also a pleasant that the bridge starts from III7.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

I agree completely with Robert's words!
This song seems to come from a very positive world.
Beautifully done!

Noel, so smooth and likeable!

I think everyone likes that 'soft shoe' style, and so using that style emphasizes the 'good feeling' character of the whole track.

Excellent deployment of the harmonica.
Loved the vocal doubling to kick off that last chorus.
Overall pleasing to the ear; great example of 'keeping it simple' to deliver a great musical/lyrical message.

Really enjoyed this!

What's not to like?


Hi Ray,

Thanks for passing through. I appreciate your thoughts. Believe it or not, I actually don't set out to write positive songs... I just go where the words and music take me!

Thanks again for making time to have a listen.

All the best,
Noel

The opening harmonica (and the reverb on it) is inspired. And I really appreciate you stretching your vocal in the bridge ("high in heaven")! It adds to the depth and sincerity of the vibe.


very much enjoyed!

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
