happy february everyone

this is a quirky, short toe tapper i originally wrote quite some time ago, but just never got around to recording properly.  its quite a departure from most of what i've shared here in the past, basically a nonsense song of silliness.  sometimes, at a song writer night, if the audience seems to be drifting a bit, i'll pull this one out of the closet to wake them up.

Great listen man. Really cheered me up. Hearing touches of Neil Young vocal wise and loved the scratchy guitar interludes. Top work man  :)

A toe-tapper for sure. Very engaging tune.. and then it stops - I kinda like that actually.. I really like the lyric but most of all I love the vibe of it.. One note - I know next to nothing about production but I do know when I demo I tend to DI my acoustic and it sounds like yours here - I'd be tempted to mic it instead.. Of course, I could be wrong in my assumptions... Really great tune @mikek

Thanks all! Glad you like it.

@MonnoDB wow good ear. Yep busted me. I usually do Mic my acoustic but I was lazy with this one. Haha. I figured I didn't need a real lush tone for this tune.

Cool one and very short. I like it and I also like the abrupt end. Could be song Nr1 on a LP.

"besically a nonesense song of silliness" - Got me on board right there, something purley inteded for joy usually acheives imo.

Can see why it gets the crown up, super fun, and some great instrumentation to make the breaks really shine.

Great listen, cheers!

Scott.
