Fabulous song by you guys! :) Very 80s vibe for sure, but it is rocking! The singing is fantastic, lyrics really well, and nice production and playing too!

Well done! :)

@Grubstar - Excellent work, loved the arrangement, and those hooky fx.

She's a wonder, ain't she? everything is right, a pop hit if ever I heard one.

Totally on the '80's pop button, very slick and I wish I did it...

Hey @Grubstar - I really liked this.. Great lyrics and such a lovely poppy melody and arrangement..  Love the vocal - a perfect fit for this little piece of (80s-sounding) magic! Super catchy!

@Grubstar,

This is a well written song. I really believe that the addition of electric guitar would lift this to another level. It`s a pop song in not unlike something the corrs would write. A second vocal would slso give this a commercial lift!

Well done

Well that was a lovely listen. I love the 80s style of production - something I indulge in myself from time to time. The voice is great - Kirsty MacColl came to mind, which is high praise in my book. I enjoyed the tasteful use of automated panning which added interest whilst listening on headphones. Very neat production, all sounded very well balanced and professional. The song itself is simple and catchy - a classic 80s pop song! Good stuff, I have no reservations at all  :D

Hi,
I'm getting Saint Etienne which is a very good thing indeed. This song is beautifully melodic and the vocals are just off the scale. I read the lyrics first and knew I was going to like it and I wasn't wrong. This is the best piece of melodic/lyrical/arrangement and performance I have heard on here in a very, very long time. Absolutely outstanding. Give me a CD's worth of this and I'd buy it.

Definitely an 80s feel to it, really well produced, singer has a great voice and catchy chorus.   However, it's not the style for me, it's a little samey, there is a slight relief in the middle which was good but I found myself looking for more light and shade.

Sorry @Grubstar, it's great work just not for me.

Hi Grubstar ,

I’m trying to acquaint myself with everyone new and as you’ve just reviewed my song I thought I better check you out...and I’m glad I did...what a beaut

I‘m a huge synth pop fan and for me vince Clarke is God 😍

This is such a well written and produced song indeed 😍😍😍😍

Yeah really nice slice of 80s pop and very interesting I got part way through and clocked the way the melody of verse lines stayed the same....something to think about I thought...then chorus lines did too and i thought wow it really works like this for this song...where i might want something different normally....THEN I read the comment above about it being samey and well funny how it hits us differently.
Anyway...worked for me!
Good song, great vocal. Lovely.
Take it easy.

You can check my stuff out here. Mini-album getting bigger slowly. Free download if you're poorer than me.

Lovely song @Grubstar
I’ll give it another listen.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

I can promise you a future of slow decline.

And there you have it.
