Description
Who'd ya expect? Chubby Checker?! WARNING: I just noticed after posting this but apparently I had the volume on my PC way, way down and of course, the volume on this thing is way, WAY up! So, before you place your weary finger on that "play" button, be advised to turn down the volume! My humble apologies! I'm still playing with some new equipment and software so I'm all flummoxed at the present! Will be hopping around here this week--great to be back!)

Fun song
Enjoyed the singing. Brass has sounded better, to be quite honest.

Thanks Vic!
Well, that's not true brass on this thing anyway but I tend to agree!

The joint
just ain't the same without you Michael. You always set the mood - at least for today my friend. A good one from not so Chubby Michael!
Cheers,
Charlie

Hi Charlie...
...seems like I've been kind of absent for more than a few months, although I've had a little time to sit and listen here (just no time to record anything up until now!) Thanks so much for the kind reception Charlie, I'm glad you liked this one (my first piano teacher taught me to sing this at around age 12, so I have no excuses if I messed it up!) Take care now, Michael

Damn,
you are my favorite singer, Michael. Amazing that you manage to always make me feel better. The weather must agree with you. Thanks for this.

The backing pushes things along nicely, with some expressive touches throughout, allowing your voice to be front and centre, and it entertains wonderfully well. I get a sense of joy from your relaxed delivery. A delight, Michael!

Great to hear your smooth, sophisticated tonsils around here again, Michael. A song to really lift the mood and get the toes tapping. Take care, Peter.

You've been missed around here. Great return. That high volume is the result of an expert mastering job. I slave for hours to get such a loud mix without clipping and never get there. I'd love to know your secret techniques.

Haven't heard this song in awhile - and you do such a great job of interpretation and vocal. Mix is good and tight too!

At last...
No that's not a request for the song ha ha...just a 'welcome back' Michael. Sounds like you're in full control of the equipment now....wonderful rendition and orchestration, regards M

Oh, yeh...
You have been missed, Michael. Your inimical style and the joy that always surfaces in your musical choices and natural vocal styling is such a pleasure to hear once again. This is right up there with your best numbers, though it's way too short. Most enjoyed. I hope that we'll now be hearing more of your wonderful covers. Just great.

Great to see you!
As usual, LOVE your pipes, phrasing, and interpretation... The volume level is just fine, masters are supposed to be fairly hot. I would love to hear this with some more sophisticated brass samples; or, heck, a real brass section, right? :) But the arrangement and orchestration is top notch, and nobody could ever complain about your singing. :)

Ahh, classic...
Just when the waters settle around Macjams, Michael shows up with yet another chart topper to steal the show.

You, sir, represent the soul of this community. This tune is incredible. As always, thanks for sharing.

A Time traveler you are..
This just swirls me to time in my life which evokes memories of family, youth, the building of the freeway system, Soda fountains, joy... Marvelous

I think I faved
but didn't get to the comment. Sorry about that. I am just still in awe at how you are able to do this kind of stuff. I mean you make me feel like I'm 4 years old in my mom and dad's house and the radio is playing. Takes me right back there.

Your vocals never disappoint. Amazing. I didn't notice the volume issue at all! Came in exactly right.
