The opening dissonant piano grabbed me and I was all-in! What a fantastic start to the track. It settled into slow groove complimented by a solid bass sound. Vocal was good, sort of John Sebastian-like in its timbre. The strings added another layer and the Rhodes sound was a good touch. Overall I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    - Bob Birthisel

Great song with a very strong voice, somehow reminding me of Van Morrison.
It's got a nice jazzy tonality to it
The hook (and ending of the chorus) is brilliant, well done!
The bass is very well played with a beautiful tone
Arrangement of the strings is very nice
Good harmonies, enhancing the lead vocals
Break with guitar followed by the modulation is beautiful

    - Peter Toussaint
Lyrics

Speed of Life

Music & lyrics by: Bill Dake 2012 ASCAP

She's been travelin' at the Speed of Life
A Roman candle, burnin' fast and bright
With a constant, endless appetite
She toasts a new setting sun

Left the hi-rise, left the "Perfect deal"
That city scene had lost its curb appeal
Too many edges, too much glass and steel
She needed open skies

Listened to that quiet voice inside
Whisper gently, "Let's enjoy this ride"
At the Speed of Life

Never questions what the day will bring
Knows she's done with chasin' fame and bling
Simply seekin' sweeter songs to sing
Keepin' her soul alive

Found a boy who's into harmony
Matches her style
Now they're blendin' voices by a silver sea
At the Speed of Life

Two bodies dancin' 'neath the Milky Way
So many stars
Might keep romancin' 'till the break of day
Movin'
At the Speed of Life
