Not getting that Band vibe here...maybe a little Mellencamp but mostly a LOT of Kenny!

We streamed it several times on a day trip today and it had Janice singing harmony immediately and talking about how "danceable" it sounded.

One word really comes to mind: Memorable. It just invites more plays. Listening now on the monitors and it sounds great as it did on the Subaru system (a good one).

This is one of those standout nothing left to add nothing left to take away mixes.

Fiddle is amazing...don't have that in the 2018 Mac...hopefully will when 2019 is released.

Percussion is perfect for the stripped down lyric and groove. And the lyric showcases your ability to say things in cool and unique ways.

Great!!!

I got a kinks vibe from this, and I loved the vocals and the band sound.

Enjoyed this well done .

Thanks

Wow, Kenny! This is superb! I did pick up a little Band vibe in it. I've always been a fan of The Band, especially after The Last Waltz.

But Like Bud and Janice said, this is definitely YOU. Your craft is coming through loud and clear on it, and I really like it. The energy in this song is just right for the lyrics, and the choice of instruments and style is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing!

Amazing write. Sounds like a instant classic.

Awesome BAND. Love the percussion. Excellent mix.

One of your all time best vocals. In-the-pocket energy (without the "too hot" thing ever). Whatever you are doing....keep it up!!!

Incredible stuff.

thanks Floyd,

my hearing is making a comeback, makes it easier to mix

I think it pales in comparison to your productions.

Always enjoy your lyrics, so well written! And that signature vocal too. I see a couple people mentioned a lost track from the band, I didn't notice that yesterday, but it does have that sort of vibe about it.

Very good, Kenny, as your songs always are!


Thank you Dave

Kenny this is your best to date IMHO. Super groove and backing tracks and an outstanding vocal. Well done!

This sounds like a blend of Smookie and New Riders of the Purple Sage to me. But it really is Kenny at his best.

Super song!

Your vocal style is really perfect in this song.
Great arrangement and performance.
I have to admit to being disappointed by the lyrics of the chorus but that's probably because I'm verbose, at best, and way too wordy. If it were mine I'd see it as a missed opportunity to try to be a clever dick but to everyone else it's a humdinger.

Ha!

great comment (subtle as a brick) of course you're absolutely right

why not write a song as a 20/21 year old with a one track mind

thank you for your listen and kind words

Can`t think of anything that could be better on this fun song... except maybe to dance to it!

Kenny,

This has such a nice feel to it . . . don’t know why it reminds me of the Counting Crows--could see Duritz doing this . . . just has that vibe to me. Well put together production wise. . . and a nice hook and vocal keep my ears engaged. Nice work, good luck with it.

My best to you,

Deej

What a tune! The first thing that caught my ear was the somewhat unusual percussion on it. The groove is absolutely infectious, and all the while unique. And of course, your vocals soar here - the harmonies on that chorus are fantastic.

Wouldn't change a thing - thanks for sharing smile

Probably what's really important in my dilettante view is that you are trying different things musically. Meaning, you are not shy of experimenting with lyrics, styles and uncommon choices of instruments for the genres. That is what makes stuff interesting! "Angela" sounds great in all respects. I would not change a thing.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.





Misha,

thank you so much for those kind words
