Inspired by Forums 'Best song with girl's name in title' , I thought I'd write my own.
Using a Mosrite, Fender Jaguar, Hofner bass, and some drum loops, this is my vocal debut.
I wanted to post it under the 'sappy love pop rock songs' genre but it seems one doesn't exist... strange.

Dave, Dave, Dave! You're back! With a voice high and clear...I pictured you as a baritone, heh. Classic. You nail the essence of 60's surf rock.

Sappy love, pop rock songs like this are the coolest. Seriously, I dig this kind of music and you didn't mess around laying it down like it really is. So this is your vocal debut huh? Well, you gotta do some more singing then man. This is great. What a super cool, light, quazi-60s sound you got going on here. Wonderful. And a key change. Dang!

This is classic surf style rock vocals!!! You've been holding out on us Dave! Great backing track too... I remeber this song being a major hit in 1964. It rode the top of the charts till the Beach boys had the hit Dance Dance Dance... but man, you made your mark! Thank you for releasing this lost treasure here!

Wow! Excellent vox! Intro is like Velvet Underground to my ear and then it goes all Jan and Dean. But by the end it's more complex than Jan and Dean and almost Mammas 'n Pappas with the harmonies? Fantastic big toms sound and wild solo, surf style. Amy must be stoked!

This is my era. Great tune, could have stood a few doo wops I think. Nice clear sound as well. Can I buy this on a 45rpm. Excellent work. oops nearly forgot to mention the vocals, - they sound fine.

Sitting in a hotel lobby I just about strangled myself with my earbuds waiting for the WiFi page load. This is so great! Right out of a B-beach movie, I can see you and your tSunami clones doing a gig on a cool end-of-summer night up on a faux tiki-bar stage. You are in a pastel blue v-neck cardigan sweater with white collar peeking out. The rest of the identical-clone band naturally has varying but matching get-ups. I LOVE our guitar collection btw. I can't believe I passed on a jaguar for $300 in 1985. (Well, it was in really crappy condition so I took the Telly.) Love the snappy spring reverb as always. (If it's not directly from your tube Fender amp I don't wanna be corrected).

Reminds me a little of Velvet Underground (as well as the surf music that is obvious). I like it. Upbeat. Sounds naive in a good way. Fun to listen to.

wow - my girlfriend in high school - my unrequited love and the one I too wrote songs for - was Amy. Amy and a mosrite guitar and we are back in 1967 again - except you are a good singer and i was not. Your stuff is soo evocative - kick that premier reverb and let's put the top down and go for a drive. I really like this- so thanks dave --( my son is dave - no relation to amy) md (les)
