I love what you did here. That banjo gives it that surreal feeling to it. It’s cool in my books!

Yeah, this banjo, what a good idea, really excellent. Beautiful harmonys. A very “British” approach of this song, very “Beatles”, sometimes, i love that.
I couldn’t imagine that this song will travel one day. It’s a so strange sentation…

It’s a great song, and now shows that it can work in many different ways…
Yes, there’s a mix of Beatles, Steptoe & Son (if you know that, it’s an old Brit sitcom) - and a bit of Tubby the Tuba (really showing my age now!)

I didn’t know this tv show, but for Tubby the Tuba, you’re right, there’s something of that in your remixe.

This is so perfect. What a song. We need bigger thumbs.

Very cool! For some reason, I couldn’t get the image of Kermit the Frog playing that banjo part out of my head. (Then again, growing up with Sesame Street/The Muppet Show during the seventies might have something to do with it, heh.)

with Miss Piggy on tuba?

This song is beautiful in all its iterations, but I really love your version especially the banjo (and the applause at the end:))

This reminds me of “Jolie Louise” by Daniel Lanois. His doesn’t have a banjo but it does have sqeezebox… and similar Acadian folk feel.

BTW - Is there anything better than the Beatles and the muppets. I’ve always had a crush on Kermit. I think he’s one of the most underrated singers of our generation. ;) And he’s GREEN!

Very well done, it is a great group of people youve got people reminiscing about. Me, I cant watch that kermit singing that rainbow connection song, breaks my heart every time. Again very well done.

I don_t know, but french female vocals like these have something fantastically for me and you worked out that point in a lovely way. So lyrical and tender like a song for children.

bee-U-tiful. As evocative as anything I have ever heard here. 400 thumbs up..

Did you use a melotron? or..I can’t tell. you have the tracks? I have this melodica that keeps axxing me to do Toots Thielman on z boulevard alongside this. and I know..but it really is a good thing.

You’re such an outstanding composer and arranger - we’re lucky to have you sharing your muse here. And with this one you’re tucking on so many heartstrings / memories of mine, I will refrain from listing, since it would just date me way too much :-)

Also your chording deserves a special mention again. Fresh and with an air of sophistication, yet never contrived.

Superior talent, skill and experience wrapped into a package with genuine emotion. I am in awe!
