Wow! What a great song! It's perfect for the times we are in; but can expand beyond that.
The feel is so needed right now. The song itself oozes that; and the video put it over the top!
By the way, I always feel there is something slightly abba-ish about your harmonies. If you knew how much I like there vocals, you would know what a big compliment that is.
If you don't mind me asking; how long does it take you to put videos together? I like that you add them as you can. I have just found that so time consuming. It's always easy to watch what someone has done to a song and take for granted the work that goes into the video side.
I will admit, I've pulled away from social media and TV to some extent. This is a serious situation, and I do keep educated; but limit the "doom and gloom" thinking. Thank you so very much for posting this...and taking the time the whole package together. This song was a great way to start my morning.
C.Aaron Madison I often get asked how to pronounce my name. "Ma-Duh-Sn" J/K As people have left the "." out so many times, "Caaron" has become the norm of it. Still said as the "." was there though.

Hi James, Herb, Floyd, Dani, Robert, Shigeki Adachi and Peter
Thanks all for listening and commenting and lifting my spirits in these tough times. In South Africa, we are not even allowed to walk the dog. My West Highland Terrier, Findlay, doesn’t know what is going on. He usually gets two walks a day.
Anyway, I am one of the lucky ones who can work remotely. The company I work for has not closed down for the shutdown. I have been working remotely for almost a month now.
HTL, this particular video didn’t take me too long to make. What took a while was to get hold of all the photos! Once I had these, I used an app on my iPhone called “Quick”. It is made for GoPro and it works so well. I collated three different videos using my phone (the max video length on the iPhone app is about 1 min 20 secs) and then sent the videos to my laptop. I then just cobbled the video together and put in the audio using NCH video pad. My Youtube channel is monetized so it is worth my while to make videos.
Nice groove and I liked the strong reverb on the vocal, worked well in my opinion. Had a good effect on me and made me want to listen again. And as always, the vocal quality is outstanding. Wish I could sing half as good as that.

Dear Ms. Cooper & Ms. Petty...
Your collaboration was a tangibly heartfelt response to 'Guitarhacker's' thoughtful, unifying songwriting challenge .
That style you used, as the younger folks here in America would say, was "da' bomb" . That strong, pounding beat provided a startling and exciting contrast to your vocal performance, which was as clear and engaging as I believe your singing always is.
Ms. Petty, your lyrics sounded inevitable, as though they were the only words that could ever have been attached to Ms. Cooper's music. Your collaboration with her must be one of the great examples of true creative empathy between two artists.
Thank you both for presenting your hopeful and reassuring musical production to the User's Forum members !!!
Truth & love,
