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!
