Great tune: Clean production on a great theme; well developed and executed by the performance. Liked the vocal attitude and character that worked so well with the lyric. Excellent arrangement as well; especially thought that section at 2:05 to about 2:23 was purely Beatles-esque (meaning that in a VERY good way). Well done.

Have to say I really liked this song on first listen. Great production, vocals as excellent overall a great song

Nicely done. Nice lyrics. The overall arrangement was great. The background vocals were spot on. Very catchy.
