But it sounds really great man, I love it.


Mr. Snyder - Goosebumps is always good. smile
The 2017 date is when I recorded this version - maybe. It might just be left over from another page on the site that I copied to create a new page for posting it. It has been done and out there for a while...

I wouldn’t have any idea how to rank your songs. They are all so very well done. We are lucky to have you here, Tom


Thanks for all of that, Tom. I appreciate the note on the bridge. (we are lucky to have you here, too...)

The "simple" band is wonderful and we place that in quotes because it is much harder than many realize to create a soundstage like this. It sounds terrific on the monitors. The cellos and acoustic guitars sound and work together superbly. Again, it was David that alluded to the wonderful arc. We much like the congas as the timing/tone of them adds to the overall, as Ray said, feeling of hurt and healing.

All of the above sets up the outstanding vocal and write. We've said it before but you are a master at expressing emotional songs like this without ever crossing that "angst ridden" line. Powerful and passionate.

The production sounds ageless ... those of all ages who admire singer-songwriter songs will immediately be engaged by this.

1978? Wow!

J&B


...and this is a much appreciated "review" to add alongside David's and Caaron's... smile

To me, the percussion may have been a little intrusive at times. I feel it could have been a bit softer, more compressed and wetter. A beautiful, beautiful song Floyd!! Take care. Greg


Greg - I always enjoy reading your comments!! Thanks!!!

floyd,

Nice guitar intro.
Great vocals and harmonies.
I can't think it was written more than 40 years before.
Wonderful listen.

Best regards.

Good to have you drop by, Bob.

This is one of those that makes me want to listen to every word.

Very nice!

Thanks, moto!

Very beautiful orchestration which brings your lyrics to life. It's a beautiful story that you tell us. Life is weird, you meet people you meet for the first time and that you seem to know. Well done.

Kindly regard

Maybe I asked the same as i saw David s did; is this the original song from 2017 or a remake?
If it was the old one, I'm amazed even more. It sounds so bright, like I'm sitting next to the guitar.
I liked that chord progression in it. Giving the song that nice twist in tension (if you understand what I am trying to say).
And of course your vocals are very good, but that's nothing new. Same for the lyrics. You never fail in making this music.

Love it all,
Hans


Thanks, Hans! This recording was done a couple of years ago... I just looked at the folder that holds the BIAB tracks - they were generated in December 2017 - so that is when I did it... (the song was written 40+ years ago...)

I think this is a song that would best be listened to at a quiet time of the day or night because of the intimacy of the lyrics and the laid-back, lost-in-thought feel of the music, which combine to create a thoughtful and unexpectedly emotional experience. It's a good example of the meaning of the phrase, "Still waters run deep." Introspection is what's going on here and with that, you get some insight. A fine musical expression of things usually unseen on the surfaces of our lives.

Hi Floyd,

I know I'm impossibly late to this one and basically it's all been
said already, so many times.

Let me just say that I got lost in it, with the music carrying me along
and the lyrics throwing up images and scenes in my imagination.

It was a good trip.

Floyd,

I am always impressed with your ability to write thought provoking lyrics. Little twists on phrases like "we thought we had a lot in common strangers usually do". I would have never come up with a line like that! The fact that you wrote this so many years ago shows the true song writing gift that you have! The backing band is arranged in such a lovely manner that perfectly carries this tune along! Your vocal is delivered in a genuine manner that does the lyrics justice! As always, some of the top level stuff that we always get from you! You post so much great material that we tend to take it for granted! You are greatly appreciated by your forum family here! Take care! T
