Maybe a simple song, but so effective in its beauty. Wonderful!

Wow man, this is good.

I love this pella anyway, its beautiful but you give it new life with that guitar work. Its like Mr Cash but better (I love ‘HURT’ by Mr Cash and this reminds me of that (in a disjointed way)).

Why its only got 3 recommends is a bloody crime!

The introduction of the female touch is class. Certainly adding this to my ipod squire. Consider this a virtual pat on the back. This is a wonderful track

A really creative blending of samples and vocal, and in particular a really effective re-working of the Dusty porch song (off a really nice magnatune album I did not know) into the meat for this Americana stew.

What I like here is that the queeniemusic sample gives you a change of mood and setting, and the juxtaposition fits.

I think here and there you’ve put keyboardish things on the edges, but they don’t always work very well in the mix.

The guitar sounds are rich, and the vocals are nicely placed in the mix.

A good, solid mix.

Lovely - touching lyric and the simple delivery suits the sentiments.
The female vox is a nice touch too.
I’m sure Panu likes your approach to mixing his songs.

This is pure beautiness. When I was younger, I listened a lot to this kind of music as it sounds like 60s/70s and my elder sisters herad a lot of “Beat Club” and me a young boy detected music. Nowadays (even if it_s hard to believe) I am listening again to this kind of music. Thanks for bringing back such a good memory which came back to real life!

I was doing this one myself, so I haven’t listened to other peoples’ versions - glad to finally get to know this one. Very hypnotic.
