Marty,
Nice one! Excellent message which I can absolutely relate to smile
Ace vocals! Everything sounds better when Dave takes guitar - very cool opening.
"There's no time for confessions if you've gotta stand in line." good one.
Mix is very clean, sounds great on my AKGs. Neat video too. Thank you for sharing,
Misha.

I agree with other comments.

This is a good write.
Good mix and well performed.
Some damn fine axe playing too by Dave.

Well done!

Howdy, Chulaivet! Thanks for stopping by and your comments, Wayne.

....knock me over.

This is the BabuMusic signature sound.
That vocal that speaks-to-the-listener.
That Buttery Bass keeping a solid rhythm.
That BlueAttitude guitar lifting it higher.

Good video. Good mix.
A song to listen to while driving (put it on your list! smile )

fj

Thanks so much, Floyd. You, sir, fill out my driving song list just fine.

Excellent song, so well written as per usual!

Thanks to everyone that mentioned my part, it was a fun song to play on.

Thanks for everything, Dave. Yeah, I have 4 or 5 songs ready to flood this forum. wink

Really, this is blues at its best and you guys are the blues champs in my book. But, come to think of it, there are a lot of blues champs on this forum.

ANYWAY, you guys are AMONG the elite crowd of blues champs both here and on the Internet in general.

I love this stuff man.

You have rocketed into My Favorite Humans book, David. For so many reasons. Thanks, and I DO love ya, man.

Okay, the pet rock line was worth the price of admission! I have to admit that being retired, I have plenty of free time and so I had to imagine my life a few years back to get into the gist of your song. You always write a good lyric and this was another fine one. The vocal was excellent, too, and Dave's guitar was icing. And of course, your bass work is nonpareil. You seem to be able to turn out great work, one right after the other. Wish I could do that. Keep it up, bassmeister!

Found this one a bit late...and I like it. A lot.

Great blues with cool lyrics we all can relate to, and you've got a really good guitar player for your song.

It has a great vibe, and yes, as others already said, perfect for driving your car.

Thanks, Derochette! I appreciate you mentioning the musical atmosphere. You are so polished in that arena.

We like how your lyric addresses the issues of our lack of and inevitability of time.

Excellent vocal, smooth bass (Bud says he wants to play like that when he grows up), Dave’s nice, fat tone on his guitar and a great choice of BiaB band mates.

How did you find the time to make that video? As always cool imagery supports the lyric and that's what it's all about!

Very timely indeed!

J&B

Thanks you guys!! Bud, I hear no contradiction in Janice's sage words. And don't ever grow up, Bud. We wouldn't recognize you. Janice, our granddaughter has a mountain bike and she wants to grow up to be just like you. A great singer who knows the fun of flying..

Cool intro. Love the bassline with the drum shuffle beat. Very cool. Excellent vocal and lyric. Dave's guitar was excellent as well.

Speaking of no time... I'm super-late on getting on the train for this song!

Starts out with a rocking guitar, so I checked which RealTrack you used to get it to sound so good... and of course, it's Dave Bell.

That explains it! laugh

Only then did I read the notes. wink

Fun listen!
