A very good listen, I like the dynamics, the melody and the piano.

Good song all round.

YES regarding the piano!

This song would fit right in on Dylan’s “Gotta Serve Somebody” album (lyric and sound) and that is a good thing.

“just try and make a difference
in every life you touch”
Amen to the above.

The lyric reaches that spiritual realm that transcends religion choices.

Good one all the way around!

Hey, David, the instrumentation is fantastic. All around, great sound. The lyrical treatment and vocals are out of sight. This avenue, I think, you would do well to pursue with vigor.
I'd be interested in hearing a bit more of your personal history with respect to this song, like, what really went into it? There's a profound message. Then you add, " It ain't gonna go that well."

David.

Every aspect of this is "one of you best!"

One of your BEST writes. Solid through and through. Lyric and melody.

One of your best vocals. Sung from the heart.

One of your best productions. Everything happens at the right time. I thought "a gospel choir would sound good here" - and it happened.

One of your best mixes.

Do a whole album like this and you would be on fire. (The GOOD "on fire").

Loved it.

David,
"it doesn't mean
you're going to hell
but if you were heartless
If you were heartless
it ain't gonna go that well"
Calling out the hypocrites one song at a time.

The piano works well...nice development.


Cheers

Even though I don't believe in God, I think your lyrics are very, very good and contain a lot of truth.

I think that your decision for the piano is a good one. When in doubt, use a piano with an acoustic and call it a day grin

From the mix, I think the darker BG vocals clash with your vocals in some places at the end, maybe they can be panned more to the right. But the rest is really good and well balanced.

PS: in the text above you forgot the "the" in "is damned sure keeping the score"


Making bits and bytes sound good...

Me on YouTube

A worn acoustic guitar, an even older keyboard, some software and lots of ideas...
