This was one of the first tunes my drummer and I did and still my favorite. Thanks for the listen/comments. My co-writer and I chopped this into a 30 second spot to pitch for commercials. I'll post that later.

Zeek, I remember this one so well when you posted it on another site, :)and it is still good as ever. Catchy as can be!! Great sound on the music, and you sound good singing as well.

Thanks for sharing it Zeek.

I liked it and feel it was done welll and has entertainment value.

You gotta get a partner whose name is "Hyde" though.

That way you could be called Hyde and Zeek!

This is well done, sounds good and right up the contemporary country aisle. Are you in a networking position to co-write with performing artists or to pitch. It definitely has a nice commercial sound (and I consider that positive!).

The vocals are good, but you may want to find a "great" singer if you go the pitching route.

I would never put my vocal out there for pitching purposes! I do have a co-writer. We do songs less than we do 30 second to 2 minute pieces for TV/Film/Commercials, etc. Already landed 2 pieces. Thanks for the listen.

Hi Zeek,

This is the last song Iím resurrecting from the pages of our history. You give so much to this forum; you are ALWAYS honest even when we donít like it, lol. I for one have come to appreciate that as Iím sure others have too. When I see your name on one of my post I know Iím going to get the truth, the cold hard truth! Thank You for that. smile

This song sounds great! I did notice the rhyme scheme changes in the third verse from the 1st two lines rhyming to the last two lines rhyming. Itís not a big deal listening to the song but when I read the lyric I notice it. Really thatís the only thing I can find to nitpick, I tried too, lol!!

I love the chorus and I think you have a great hook/title.

Enjoyed this...some nice writing all around.
Good Luck with the pitch.

Great great tune! Super melody, etc. It's a stuck in my head kind of thing, but in a good way.

If I had to critique something, I'd say the vocal tuning could be fixed up in some places. But I'm not sure it's that big a deal. I suppose the fact that I wanted to listen to it several times is a good sign wink Congrats; I wish I had written it.

That really is catchy, Zeek. I love the chorus, great lyric there and that guitar riff kills. smile

Only nit is that there were a couple of places in the verses I was expecting a rhyme and didn't hear it. Hard to be more exact without the lyric in front of me.

This does sound like it has hit potential to me. Very cool....
