Oh, the Beatles are definitely in evidence, along with a touch of folk and the Dead. But blow me down if I didn't detect a definite whisper of country here and there.  Wink Must have been in that sweeping guitar work. Grin

Well...I am a big country person and I think the "chicken-picken" was perfect. If John and Paul had picked Atkins or Haggard over Little Richard, it might of come out this way. I love it.  Cool

The lyrics are simple and wonderful, the message is so upbeat and it lightened up my day, wish I had wrote it, great job Andy.   Smiley Smiley

I also love the panning of the background vocals. There is a definite Beatles sound to it. Really nice work Mark.  Cool

Kudos to everyone, what a good song this is IMHO.

Preston   Cool Cool

EDIT: BTW, I meant to say that Holdger's lead vocals sound very close to Harrison's in my opinion.

Preston, interesting thought, John was a major Chuck Berry & Arthur Alexander fan, Paul was into Little Richard, and George's all time fav stars were Carl Perkins and Chet Atkins too. The Beatles for Sale album has got quite a few songs verging on C&W.

The lyrics are simple and wonderful, the message is so upbeat and it lightened up my day, wish I had wrote it, great job Andy.   Smiley Smiley

Preston, I'm so glad you grooved to this song, and its wonderful to know that it made your day better, in any way, even for a little while!

I also love the panning of the background vocals. There is a definite Beatles sound to it. Really nice work Mark.  Cool

Yeah, CD and I wanted a retro sound, and he used his magic gadgets to make this sound deliciously retro, and he pulled it off in style. He worked out the vocal pannings and effects. As a fellow bass player, you must have noticed the walking bass line similar to "Eight Days A Week" popping up a few times  Grin

Kudos to everyone, what a good song this is IMHO.

Thank you once again Preston, and look forward to hearing more of your tunes!!!

Cheers
Andy

Kind of a mix between John and George's!!

Hello my friends,

thx for all your kind comments! Smiley I have good news from Germany for you:

Our song is on top of the rock charts on myownmusic, after only 2 days!
http://www.myownmusic.de/genre.php?mainstyle=Rock

the people love the song and the production. I'm not much interested in beeing Nr.1 but what makes me really happy is the fact, that many people wrote me that the song made them smile even if they had a hard day or they were sad. That means: it works! Grin
The overall feedback says that everything is very nice and it has a nice retro sound and the mix is outstanding. Thank you CD! Wink
Ah and: without the nice shaker it would be only half that good  Grin

b.t.w.: Andy, what do you mean with Nena and her 99 Balloons? Huh? Cool
