Excellent as ever. Those harmony arrangements are so cool. Ya know… I think the theme is universal, not necessarily limited to England but perhaps more about ‘the times’. There was a time when humility was considered a virtue… but then it seems like there was also a time when you didn’t have to be on your guard against the wolves/vultures all the time. Ah well…

Does any nationality other than the Brits go abroad and immediately search out an ‘Olde English Pub’? Honestly, Speck, I have to pretend I’m from somewhere else! Thank you very much for your review. xxxx

Well, I’ve never been abroad but I’m pretty sure a lot of Americans would immediately search out a McDonalds, not that they’d have to search very hard.

It’s amazing how quickly we brits have changed our image from bowler-hatted queue-loving tea-drinkers to lager-drinking lads and ladettes. It used to be “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”. Nowadays, a sentence that long would be beyond most of us.

Great sentiments, great voice.

I still like queues. You know how much I enjoy rowing with people who push in! Great review, though. Thank you. xxxxx

The sweeping harmonies at the halfway mark are very powerful; its like a cannon blast of joy through the heart of a song that might otherwise feel dispiriting.

Well that’s a wonderful description, Admiral, and I’m so pleased this has evoked it. Thanks so much. xxxx

Did Ciggi just say ‘pissed’ and ‘check it out’? - What a brill track. Love the lyrics, cheeky with some great harmonies. I’m hearing some mouse clicks in there too ;-)

…’crap’ ;-)

I know - I’ve got a potty mouth, haven’t I? And trust you to notice the mouse clicks! I meant them to be there. Thanks for dropping by, dear Scott. xxxx

You rock! Your growth as a vocalist, vocal arranger and lyricist is a delight to witness.

What a very special and supportive review. One to keep and look at again whenever I’m feeling doubtful. Thank you, darling Susan. xxxx

Great sample. The chorused vocals are lots of fun. I don’t know the answer to the lyrical dilemma, either, but I know I love to hear you sing about it.

Thanks so much, Gurdonark, I’m pleased to get your very, very nice review. And to see that sweet little scruffy white face! I adore dogs. xxxx

Ha! How nice to find your review, Vid, and I’m sorry I haven’t replied before now. I’m thrilled you like it and I hope it fits in with one of your fab musical extravaganzas! Yum. xxxx

You have such an wondeful voice. Love the way you play with the sounds. And your lyrics are very good. Lovely sound.

Well what a nice surprise to find this on a rainy Sunday morning in London (yes, raining again)! Especially as it’s from a lady with such a fine voice herself. Thank you very much, Anomaly. xxxx
