I like it!
The only thing I would change---not that you asked for my advice---is "don't" for "doesn't." It's one syllable instead of two and sounds more, well, country. (And the "o" in "don't" can be stretched out as long as you like.)

Good stuff!

Nice work Dewey! Got to say that's the first time I've seen a "mulligan" in a set of lyrics! I think this one has the best sound of what you've posted! The vocals are tops! same for the harmonies! Excellent work! Thanks, Torrey

Nice harmonies and the main vocal is terrific...there is something a little strident or clipping in it but not badly.
The band carries the song well.
Don't chance doesn't to don't...there's nothing wrong with not dipping into cliche.
The narrative is good fun.
WELL DONE!

Can you explain what you mean by "...something a little strident or clipping..."?

Man do I ever like that chorus. Very hooky. An the harmony is so tasty. Good work.

What part of Michigan at you at? I spent my first three decades of life in southwestern MI.

Good day Ezekiel,

Thanks for listening. My family lives in the Lansing area (Mason, MI to be specific). I trust you spent some time enjoying sunsets on Lake Michigan, eh?

Hi Dewey,

I agree with my colleagues you made a good song.
The lyrics have a nice perspective they deal with.
And the vocal are really good. Chafing a bit, but really nice.

There is one thing though, or more a feeling, about the song. It is dealing with a subject where you want to hear a bit of desperation in the singing, but also in the song itself. The energy stayed the same, where I was hoping it would rise. Like: more volume in the choruses, a louder beat etc, etc.
Of course, it is a matter of taste, but keep in mind she doesn't fight fair! So I need to hear how that feels.

Have a nice day,
Hans

Great insight Hans! Thank you for putting yourself out there with constructive criticism. I will certainly re-think the production from the depseration perspective. Not sure I can do much about the vocals unless I hire someone (which I am too cheap to do)! LOL

Good title. Really like the lively description of that woman, easy to imagine the shaking and stomping.
Enjoyed your vocals, nice vibrato. The band sounds very good, supporting well the nice chord progression. The chorus is really catchy.

Yes, beautiful sunsets. We try to get back once a year. I graduated from CMU, and my wife attended MSU.
