The melody is smooth, Steely Danish

    - Third Word

Love it! I really like the guitar sound and playing, very well done. The vocals really fit this song so well, I hear some Al Jarreau in the tone which is a huge compliment. The arrangement/instrumentation is first class. Love the chord selection, very smooth and breezy. The lyrics are a nice touch, love the sense of whimsical which the playing also reflects.

    - Groove Fondue

Little Journey

Music and lyrics by: Bill Dake 2012 ASCAP

I'm cookin'
Popcorn and chips for dinner
You're lookin'
For the perfect complimentary wine
In stocking feet
On a cold and wet and windy evening
Single file
To a friendly couch we'll shuffle

Fire's blazin'
Cat's dreamin' dreams of Egypt
She thinks she's Persian
But she's really just a mutt
You share your theory
On the current local situation
I try to listen
But your smile takes me someplace else

A Little Journey to
A silver beach 'neath a crescent moon
Toes buried deep
In a sand dune
I never stood a chance
You had me captured in advance
I fell
I fell easy

(Instrumental solo)

We took a Little Journey to
A grey cafe with a golden view
Sat and watched the seagulls duel
In swing time
When I finally made my plea
Think I did it brilliantly
'cause, you fell
And we got started

On our Little Journey
Think it's gonna last a long time
This bottle's empty, maybe we should retire.....
You know....take a little..."journey?"
Do you think we've spoiled this cat?
