A song I did for that RPM thing, the first kinda finished one. 9 more to go.

Great song - I love your voice, and I dig the instrumentation on this track (I'm a sucker for accordions).

Also, even though I'm pretty new to MuFi (or MeMu, or whatever we're calling it lately), I have to say it's wonderful to see you posting songs again. I've really, really enjoyed every track I've heard from you. So thanks.

Really wonderful track. I hope the rest of the album turns out as well.

Hot damn. This whole RPM stunt is going to pay off in spades. Spades of the chococat song variety.

I'll trade ya my harley and my favorite guitar for your voice. It's good to hear you again. Beautiful, as always.

This is simply wonderful. Very clean and precise.

Glockenspiel for the win!

But it ends too soon! Please consider repeating from 2:35 at least 16 bars, and I'd love to hear some vocalizations/improvisational hums and oo's, culminating in a molto ritardando.

This is very good.

Going to listen to your other stuff.

Great turn of lyrics, the arrangement is great. I wouldn't complain at all to hear the vocals a little bigger in front of the instrumentation, but that's just me being selfish.

Hooray for chococat! Brilliant stuff.

Fantastic! I hope you don't mind the cliché, but this reminds me of a careless summer's day for some reason. Would definitely listen again.

I do, however, think it was a tad short.

Thanks all.
I changed the final mix a bit before I submitted it. Panned some stuff differently and bumped up the vocals, as many had (correctly) suggested and as much as it pained me to do.
Also, I changed the title to the more obvious but better (I think) "Jesus at a Table for Two."

It's still short, though.
