Loved it - found no mistakes/flaws as you mentioned - you must have been listening to a different version before you settled on this one. It reminded me of what was popular after the beginning of the British invasion in the early to mid 60s. That 12-string really puts it in that arena.

If I had vocal chops like yours, I's celebrate and tell everybody! Totally loved it! And, BTW - referring back to Floyd's comment - I had a '66 Mustang GT convertible in the late 60s and man, I could hear this playing as I drove all around St. Louis back then.

Just FWIW - I lived in Virginia in the middle 60s - first Woodbridge (near DC) and then Blackstone (west of Petersburg on Highway 460).

Cool song - i could stand a few more like this. Best to you.

Alan, thanks for the positive response. I am in the north west part of VA. BTW, I've got a 66 Corvair. It doesn't have the muscle of a 66 Mustang, but it looks good.

This is a really solid tune smile Very gentle on the ears, and quite catchy as well. Reminds of something that would've come out in the 90's, almost. Love some of the guitar work on this too.

Great work here and thanks for sharing!

Hi Etekiel's Storm,

everything's just great about this song. Yes, it does have that sixtues feel, but it sounds far better than songs usually sounded way back then. I enjoyed it very much. Really just amother great job.

All the best,

Stefan

Thank you, Stefan, for the listen and the feedback. It has been several years since I've been to Germany. I need to get back there sometime soon. I absolutely love the food.

Great Pop!

which I love, very nice harmonies and placement of them

love that 12 string sound

sounds like a song I would hear on AM as a kid and then be obsessed

with finding out who that was

enjoyed the listen,

Kenny

Nice!

I TOTALLY agree... this is an excellent listen!

I'm a huge fan of music from the 1960s. This creation of yours would stand proudly side-by-side any of the number 1 singles from that period. You've done a terrific job creating and presenting this.

All the best,
Noel

Very cool song!

i like the melody,...especially on the section that starts with "when the morning breaks"

I also like the false ending at about 3:40.
you might even want to try to make that break last a little longer.

i agree that it has a 60's sound. i hear Cowsills smile

peace!

Looks like another song I missed the first time.

I'm glad it came around again, what a fun listen! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Ezekiel's Storm, this is such a great melding of influences from the 60's, 70's and 90's. I skipped the 80's on purpose! At least to my ears anyway! A superb mix and performance! Thanks, Torrey

Not bad at all. I didn't notice anything that bugged me. Love the sentiment, and the lyrics. The upbeat rhythm and simple, classic arrangement I thought complimented them very nicely.

This flows along nicely with just the right amount of feel.

Reminded me of a Steve Harley cockney rebel style.

Thanks
