Some songs you just have to play twice to take them all in. This is one of those.

I gather that the motto of this song is "LIVE AND LEARN" ?
Repressed feelings do underscore our lives and tend to make them empty. Why are we so afraid to FEEL?

I've heard so many versions of this song (what like 20?)...heh. This mix is very solid. Lots of depth. Mysti, this is the most powerful I've ever heard you sound, emotionally. You're a torch singer! Matt, you're about as close to a genius as I've ever met, probably. I've had this melody running thru my head for about a month now...at quiet moments it just pops up. Poignant.

I too came back for a second helping. NOW I know who this is totally reminiscent of-- and I can't believe it missed me... one of my favorite artists ever-- Aimee Mann. This is VERY much the type of song she'd sing and it's her range too...

This is soooooooo good!

Great job Mysti and Matt!

This could be the best song you have done in my opinion. This is great song writing. I can see this song in a Tarantino movie. Piano, Cello, and Guitar all work fantastically. I would love some live Cello on one of my songs, you lucky bugger. The Mystified one shows her talent again by nailing another genre with her talent. I shall put a copy of this in the cupboard with all my other icomp favs. Why thank you for sharing.

LOVE that cello, though I would have liked to hear it a little louder in the mix.

Very haunting tune. Great production.

this is surely different from what u put up lately - it is well produced and sounds perfect but it is absolutley not my cup of tea - which doesn't mean that I cannot appreciate the overall quality of the arrangement, sounds and composition - u know I might be the only one thinking and actually writing this: Mysti (and I love her voice) doesn't pull this one for me - I would prefer a much deeper voice ... u have some super cool sounds build in here!!!

I think Mysti sounds like a modern day Karen Carpenter in this song. Very fitting on this somewhat retro seventies feel song. I like it. Great job.

Such a mournful acquiescence in those lyrics, such apt scoring to hack them; I'd swear you two spent actual non-virtual time together... hours and weeks swapping stories in a smoky noir bar.

Stuff like this will hasten this lapsed iComps addict to return to active, raging addiciton. Sincere thanks.

This is a fine mix of jazz with the subtleties of two subgenres of rock: pop and prog. It's really hard to describe, but there are many textures at play here, with the guitars, piano and cello all working together to create a fusion that defies categorization.

It's like a mix of "Simple Kind of Life" (No Doubt), "Unforgetful You" (Jars of Clay), "Destination Unknown" (Shadow Gallery) and many, many others.

Beautiful playing. It hurts to think that there are songs as wondrous as these on iCompositions that I cannot find on my own, and must rather rely on chance recommendations. Thanks to Modernistas (now re-named "RadioRebelde" smiley for pointing me here.
