This song was written in 1992. However, Granz completely rebuilt it from the ground up for the 2007 aesthetic...heh. theGranz plays all instruments on this track, puts a few twists on my original structure...and I sang the lyrics which I penned 15 years ago.

I remember saying something about the title to my wife. I chose poorly. Can I flip the coin again?

Those drums are Ringo, the guitar is Lennon Harrison and that base and singing has MCCartney's stamp. It's just a great number.

94. It's probably not a good idea to be chewing on a toothpick if you're talking to the president, because what if he tells a funny joke and you laugh so hard you spit the toothpick out and it hits him in the face or something. -- Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey

Wow, I never thought this sounded all that Beatlish.... I guess I don't know my Beatles flavors as well as I thought. I did do the solo Harrison style cause Babs wanted melodic dual slide guitar, and I can definitely hear McCartney in his vocal melody.

I thought the rhythm track was more REM-ish....

Thanks everyone for giving this a listen or three. It sure feels good to be back at iComp!

You know I can hear all the Beatles references, and I have made them before myself-- but this one has more Babs in it than John to me. And for that, I think it's awesome.

Of course the band is awesome!!! smiley

Matt- Glad to have you back!!!

For this gem- I am going to do something that I have sworn I'd never do again-- but you guys are worth it.

5 stars all around!!!
