Great job on this one!! You did a really good job of maintaining the original feel and yet made it your own. Also, my daughter walked by my computer as I was on my first listen and I heard her humming along as she was walking away. That has to count for something too!

Hi holster,
If I may ask, how old is your daughter?
Thanks for the great comments.
And your daughter’s humming, counts a bunch, in my book.

Hi Rene Another dandy. I was wondering how you could remember all those lyrics, and then I saw the monitor reflection in your glasses. I was hoping to find an vocal error or chord mishap, but alas none were heard. On one “magic” you didn’t drop down on the ic. ha ha There now i feel like I added some help. You are the real deal dude. congrats again
