Genre bias is going to make it hard for me to say I truly like this song, even though I recognize that it’s very skillfully written, performed and recorded. I’ve given you this review several times....

+: A hell of a tongue-twisting chorus. Most impressive.

I am an unabashed fan of your work. This sounds like you: classic pop songwriting chops with lovely chords, great melodies and a near-flawless performance. You’re one of very few people on this site who could show up with GnG at this stage in the competition and still come out on top. Four-and-a-half respectful nods.

So I "recruited" some student horn players, busted out the violin and practiced till I could almost play my Motown-approved string line, called Paul the drummer for some tasty beats, wrote a super-catchy chorus with stuff about wizards—they were very in then—and at least one person called it "yacht rock" and perhaps it was that same person who said (and I'm paraphrasing) "What is this crap!? I thought your A-game was acoustic pop love songs."

glennny wrote:FBF- I pretty much feel the same way as Melvin does. I think you have guts! It’s pretty freaking bold to go GnG especially when you half expect Ross to go GnG which is his bread and butter. This stands up. Great song! LOVE the lyrics! I’m confused by the tongue twister parts. I believe in you so much as a song-writer I believe that all the images are metaphors for something. Then I keep racking my brain trying to understand what a sticky finger flicking fuss is. It’s a great tongue twister, but I don’t get the deeper meaning if it’s there. I’m dense about these things. That’s not a criticism of the song, it’s a short coming of me as a listener. Regardless I love your vocals and playing and the song structure. I won’t be surprised if this wins. I’ll be surprised if this doesn’t advance. Great job! Interesting play in the game of Nur Ein!
