Great song! Good quality production, nice arrangement.
Nice opening piano riff. Very warm and real feeling to this song, puts me right in the bar in the next seat. Great Instrumentation and composition. This what great song writing is all about. True emotion in this song, the writer knows how to reach the heart. Very, very well done. There were a lot of elements coming through nicely in the mix especially the Spanish sound on the keys near the middle.
Lyrically, and with the loping melody, it has the appeal of Bob Seger's "Main Street." It's a good story about the working person's America. Terrific short intro. Essential to any song is a good melody and lyrics, which this has, and the addition of midi instrumentation compliments the tune very well. It has every man's voice, which is a better choice than the beautiful voice preferred by so many producers, and has more expression.
If you could rate more than five stars for originality, I would. That's what grabs me the most about this song. Very soulful. Sounds like something that would be written at 3AM in a truckstop somewhere after a night of hard drinkin'. Great chord changes here also. Sounds like a pleasant mixture of Pink Floyd and Paul Simon. I could listen to music like this all night long. Hope somebody more important than me agrees with that assessment. Really good and original song!
LOVELY PIANO INTRO,with an excellent tonal sound,VERY CLEAR VOCALS,SO IT'S EASY TO HEAR THE INTERESTING AND COLOURFUL LYRICS,also I like the way when you said 'I'm no T REX'you had a Mark Bolan vocal tone to the voice,AS A COMPLIMENT I WOULD SAY IT REMINDS ME / SOUNDS LIKE THE GENTLER BOB DYLAN,very catchy chorus,
Nice vocals. Nice arrangement. Good instruments. Nice song I like it.
The piano is very nice. I also like the organ that comes in and the different instruments that re being used during certain parts of the song.
I don't know if you will appreciate this comment but I could totally hear this in a cult classic movie (Rocky Horror type)
I liked it!
