Great old pop/rock sound dude. Your guitars have a certain jangly/shimmery edge to them which I love. And it's a really good song. I wish I could download this!

A good solid rocker! You definitely have your own sound, which I love. Although I'm suprised it was recorded in Portland..it sounded more like something out of Eugene. What do I know?

"Oh yeah!" The description says it all: short and rockin'. I love it. My favorite parts are the subtle organ (is it an organ?) in the background of the chorus and the great bass line.

Man, this seriously rocks! Just enough classic-rock style with a weird 50's-60's vibe on the side.

The production is a bit lo-fi for me, and the vocal melody a touch too repetetive, but overall it has a good honest feel to it, it's got a heck of alotta plays, so hats of to ya who cares what I think.

Holy crud this is a fine stinger of a pop number. I gave it all fives but the master volume seems to be clipping... or is that just the keyboard effect?

Classic Nuggets sounding stuff here... nothing fancy, just great rock and roll. If the music wasn't so loose and energetic, I'd probably scoff at the lyrics, but this works for me!

Nice song! Maybe you could insert something different in the middle just to cpture the listener attention, a strumental solo in an other tune, some rythm-change, something...
Anyway, it's funny and direct! Pure rock'n'roll! smiley

Man, what a lot of comments since I last checked this song!!! Yeah, this song is short and sweet and then loses it's flavor... like the bubble gum it was meant to be. I wrote and recorded it in a day. But I think it has it's fun in the sun. All your comments are much appreciated. You all make my world a bit lovelier I'll tell ya!

Yeah! Really lovin the 'brit punk' vibe here. I like the 'no nonense' appoach - it's really refreshing to hear good, straight, driving guitar pop amongst all the loops and electronic wizardry!

I must also visit you more often.

Wow! I JUST happened to see this latest comment and then saw all these recent ones I hadn't seen before!!! Wow, this song has gotten some attention!

Paul, yeah this was a summer song. It brings back some cool memories when I play it.

Thanks Richard... I love those Mop Tops!

Gos, I have tried to love Husker Du but keep failing, but will try again now that you say this reminds you of them.

Mick... Feel free to stop by any time! No song of mine can compare to Spesh for England. You Rock!

Yeah my Punk cred suffered back in the day because of my insistence to stay in tune. I love your playing man. Thanks for the comment!

Niel, glad ya like the song! I would gladly redo it with more variations but this was done on 1" Tape (borrowed) up in Portland and I'm afraid it has been wiped. It only exists like this now. My drummer told me the repeating chorus annoyed him too. LOL!

Nitty gritty, angst punk rock! Kewl. Over 2000 plays in iComp! That's amazing. That surely makes this a hit song then, doesn't it. Nice one, Granz.
