The LongLines are proud to present, "Reach for the Sky"

If this song were a cigar, I'd say: "Somewhat dramatic, with rich undertones. Finishes strongly, with soulful and uplifting currents." Enjoy!

Jayman......Composition and Keys (30 hours mixing!)
theGranz....Guitar
Baboon......Lyrics and Vox

Major thanks to Jay for his tireless and enthusiastic work mixing and producing this track (when I say "tireless" I mean he burned the candle way down putting in the hours). Thanks man!

..and think that I usually pay hard-earned cash to listen to music that, in most cases, can't even compare to this!
Excellent, all the way around. Awesome vocals, articulate and beautiful build-up, gorgeous guitars and keys, terrific harmonies...another must-have for my collection, mates.
Thanks A LOT for sharing.

Why are aren't you on The Tonight Show instead of all those clowns jumping around like lolli pops? Your music is sooo great!! I've got slow internet, so I hate to down load songs, but I just have to down load your compositions. You have such a comprehensive hold on music that, I don't believe I can give any constructive insights. You know it (own it) all, all ready.

I know that I commented already, but need to comment again. After downloading your song, I have now listened to it 83 times!! or something like that. It's unclear, kinda cloudy but one thing is for sure I will never get tired of listen to those keys, that guitar and that vox!!

Douglad Bader had that story, 'Reach for the Sky' and his life epitomised that spirit. I think the music evocative of it. The lyric talks to me, as I gather my nerve to do what I'm contemplating.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Bader

93. It's interesting to think that my ancestors used to live in the trees, like apes, until finally they got the nerve to head out onto the plains, where some were probably hit by cars. -- Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey

Doesn't anyone here hear Michael Hutchence of INXS in Bab's voice or is it just me? LOL! Thanks all for the splendid comment faves and downloads. It's great to be hooked up with Baboon and Jayman. They are freaking awesome cats to play music with.... now just to get them to move to California...

This was worth it!!! What a great song!!!
Freaking awesome!!!

I love Matt's guitar in here. Not retro to me. Very modern and edgy.

The strings are PERFECT in the mix. Not over or underwhelming. Jay- you've got great ears!!!

Babs- as usual you're outta control with your great vocals. No effects here and there GREAT!!! smiley

What I love the most about this is the piano melody from "Mercy Mercy Mercy" that you've incorporated in here.

Great rock song, definitely reminds me of early Genesis, great vox as always Babs and the keys were superb. I'd liked to have heard a bit more of Matts guitar work in the mix, but thats just because I'm his personal stalker. smiley
