    Good song! Somehow the guitar reminds me of this by the Legends:

    Fantastic how you make those vids.

    All these extracts, some I note from recent blogs, slot well together, and the child's voice in the background works amazingly. However, with your wizardry it's hard to judge whether the voice is computer generated or for real? Another one I reckon I'll be humming all day!

    Absolutely loved the storm bits too – but you'd know that already!!!

    Not bad, but the keyboard part is straight from The Cure's Lullaby, bro. Sorry.
    Oh, and you're not very comfortable performing without your bass are you?

    could you tell us some time this week how that song came about?

    when did it first come to you?

    how long from then to when it was recorded?

    Lovely video. I like the sweet young voices in in the background.

    I had bouncy castle fun last weekend and lightening strikes this weekend.
    I don't think you're supposed to have an emergency room outcome to the bouncy castle fun (not me, fellow bouncer) and now understand why they are really geared towards children. Hell of a good bouncy time despite the black and blue pinkie toe – would do it again in a new york minute.
    Great vid, me gusta mucho, Esteban.

    you are such an artist, very 80's, nice demo

    You should do a professional CDR run of a bunch of these tunes in some kind of semi-handmade rubber stamp art thing and charge like $20-30 a pop. That would generate some bucks for your blog without the grind of doing actual handmade discs and art, while still being reasonably priced "handmade" art.

    Enjoyed the immediacy of the visuals.
    Enjoyed the time jumps in the song.
    Lovely melody. Nicely played and recorded.
    Sounds like… who cares?
    Sounds good to my ears. That's enough for me.
    Thanks Steve
