Description
Wrote this one day while at work on a cardboard box. Had a Peter Murphy tune in my head but didn't know the lyrics. So I came up with these. At the 2:40 mark you'll notice a "clang" sound. This is a wine bottle being struck with a pin from a door hinge. At the 3:23 mark you'll hear kind of the same noise. But in fact these are me and the producer rolling 12oz Miller beer bottles on the tile floor in the control room. Not even sure what this one was about? Most likely another reflection of hindsight after a breakup.

Another Great Song by Jody!
I love the guitar accompaniment! This really gets good when the full rhythm section comes in! Outstanding vocal. You have a great Dennis Deyoung quality in your voice. Downloaded for repeated iPod enjoyment!

This sounds great
Great guitar sounds and singing. You have a very Styx/Supertramp-like vocal.

Slashh!
Thanks Brother. You're not the first one to comment on the vocal style. Funny thing is that if I tried to sing a Styx or Supertramp tune it turns out awfully bad! Perhaps they should try singing mine. It would make things so much easier!

Reminds me of....
Hi Jody. Nice guitar intro leads your fine vocals in. Your vocals remind me of Graham Nash a la Songs For Beginners. Like the arrangement. D/L! Thanks. Regards, Peter.

Good grief!
I done nearly missed this one, whew! Jody, I'm afraid I can't find the proper superlatives to express how much I enjoyed this, so perhaps just plain ol' "Ya done good kid!" will have to do for now. Actually it's more than "good", this is marvelous as is just about everything I've heard from you. Songwriting, vocal and instrumental work--definite A+. Thanks again and look forward to the next....Michael

refreshing
The sound of that 12 string is refreshing.Great tune. I think a bit about Strawbs when I hear
this. It's great the way the drums come after the first 2 minutes then disappear again. Nice arrangement.

fresh
crispy open sound to this tune, Jody. Got warmer around 2:40 to give it some extra texture. Bottle effects worked just fine to my ears. Cool site too. Looks like you're booked to the end of the year. Some actual time off?
