I enjoyed the song Daryl - your music has a unique quality to it - you have your own style. I liked the sections where you did the radio tone vocal parts - that worked well.

Overall I liked the mix - cheers.

Thanks a lot Doug

As I listened I kept thinking of the eighties band that sounded like that, and when Nigel mentioned this band, I was like, "Yep! That's what I'm hearing."

I like the instrument choices and how well they blended together. Clean mix. Good song too!

I got a few songs that I think are real 'heartfelt' too. May post a few so you won't feel all alone. : )

Thanks Grem - I'll take Squeeze as a comparison.  Please do post - I need as much support as I can get :)

you are the master of the *couplet*.  The time is out of joint, O cursed spite
That ever I was born to set it right!  I'm glad you found love and have been together so long.    My parents are working on the 64th year together.

I notice from listening to much of your other material that you and your wife make a great team. I could hear her maybe singing some kind of reply or response to the existing lyrics. Even without her singing it's a nice thoughtful tune with a nice positive message well written and recorded!

Thanks Tim - she's in there on this one - backing vocals on the chorus. She is a proper singer - I'm just a hack :)

Not¬†a bad little love song Daryl, you have obviously RTFM the married¬†manual¬†ūü§Ē

Absolutely Wookster. 

Page 1, rule #1 = learn the words 'yes dear'

Sounds great, Daryl.

I didn't hear the previous mix of this, so all I can comment on is the new "less top" version, and it sounds good my ears. Clear and clean, and a nice spacious mix. 

Really good stuff, well-performed!

Rob

 

Thanks so much Rob

Terrific lyrics - you are lucky to have your wife but I bet your wife might feel she has a good deal of luck in having you.  I'm always a big fan of your vocals and harmony.  I did not hear the "toppy" version but this "top less" (strike that and reverse it) sounds top notch!

Thanks Freddy - I got the better end of the deal :) 

I prefer top-less ;)

Another song in your inimitable style. No need to apologize or feel embarrassed for lovey dovey lyrics as long as they're sincere and heartfelt.

They are. Thanks so much Bjorn

I 100% thought "those are Squeeze-like chord changes!" but all your own original style, natch. Squeeze was a great band I thought and I hope that's a compliment - I always appreciated their willingness to break conventions and rules in things like chord selections, melodies, and arrangements.

That's what this song has going for it in spades - plus another excellent mix with clarity and separation. Loved it.

 

cheers,

-Tom

 

Thanks Tom my mate - I'll take Squeeze.

I thought we agreed that I was the one with the nice organ and you were the one with an impressive bottom end...

Slick, sophisticated, clever and skillfully rendered. As always! The thing I love about your music is the variety of things that beep, squonk and whistle in the spaces of the melody, and I often wonder how you made those sounds.

You have talent and skill and it's on full display here.
