For losers everywhere...

This is pretty great, Major. You have a great voice, I reckon. I have to wonder, though, if your style is getting a bit too...comfortable. I'm curious to see what would happen if I pushed you outside your comfort zone, stylistically. I'll have to...::wanders off, muttering::

If I had to pinpoint something negative about it it would be that I don't like a keyboard that plays during the chorus on the left channel very much, but that is entirely a matter of personal taste, and I guess that's a rather clumsy way of saying what I actually want to say: this song is very well rounded. "Bien lograda", we say in Spanish, you took it to its natural completion.

Sometimes the vibrato of your voice has a Bowie quality to it. Bowie songs would sound very good on your voice.

Very many thanks guys. I recorded this two or three years ago now, and left it off an "album" because.........I don't really know why. I remember when it was finally finished (it took an age) I thought that it was the first "proper" song I'd recorded. I mean - I could imagine selling it to some MOR artist. But there's just something a bit boring about it when I listen to it now. Oh well - onwards and upwards!

LOOM - my forthcoming challenge upload - a cover of Sunday Morning - is way way WAY outside my comfort zone. I'll be interested to hear what you think when I dump that sucker on the community......

Awesome. I eagerly await it! Pushing the limits of your comfort zone can result in some fantastic things.
