So sorry to hear about Di's health. That can't be easy.

As always your songs are wonderful, and having a name like you do for the title of the song certainly grabbed my attention! Glad you made a nod to it in your opening post.

Thanks for sharing.

Cool country tune Alan. Loved the title. Was thinking Pat Benatar when I read the title. Super vocal and loved your guitar. Super backtrack

Sounds good to me, Alan!

You are a gifted lyricist, very clever and engaging lines.

Mix sounds good too, and I like the arrangement. Also I think your vocal fits the material well.

Overall a good listen!

Love the lyrics, such a great idea and country spin on Pat Benataur. The melody was upbeat and danceable. Your vocals were just fine. I always say "don't compare your vocals to someone like George Jones" no one can probably top that, but we all have the voice God gave us and it's unique and we need to appreciate it. Good song.

Love that chorus...strong stuff you have going there! Really fine write.

The bands sounds like a well honed and talented bar band that's been at it for a while. Very cohesive.

Don't sell yourself short...the vocal worked well for us! And the level sits fine in the mix.

Yep...we like!!

J&B

Best to Di and you.

Hi Alan,

These lyrics are such a clever creation. I wish I had your imagination! I'd love to be able to come up with something half as clever as this. Your writing skills are powerfully on display here.

Also, I LOVE these vocals. The backing is a perfect match for highlighting your vocals.

From start to finish, I was with you every beat.

My best wishes to you and Di,
Noel

Hi Alan,

Two things:
1-I pray that Di gets better soon
2-You don't need another singer, you did just fine.

I really liked this toe tapper. Your backing is is spot on, your vocals are perfect and your lyrics are fantastic. Put this all together and you have a very good song.

Excellent work!

PS - have you seen me at closing time? It sure sounded like you did grin

Hey Everyone ...

Thanks so much for the really kind and encouraging comments. Will get back to everyone over the next day or two ... we're being overrun by home healthcare folks at the moment.

Alan

Alan,

Great country drinking song!
Very clever.
Very good proportion of vocals and guitars.
Jim, Jack or Johnny Red.
I drink every whiskey every day.
I like the half with soda.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

I came here expecting Pat Benatar, hehe

Al, this sounds like a sh#t kicking classic, that's what they used to say in the 90s.

All kidding aside this is a very good write and well mixed and well sang.

You always pick your instruments very well, really like that Brent 1515 soloist

don't give that call stuff, get out the good stuff and hit me with your best shot

enjoyed the listen,

Kenny
