    I first assembled the parts for this song five years ago, January 2015. Then I tried singing the lead vocal. It was dire, it was wretched. I gave up.

    I think the problem was that I was trying to sing songs that were not right for my altar-boyish voice (Thin Lizzy, Kiss, Journey...). You get the idea.

    This is by no means perfect, it needs a lot of work on pitch and sustain - but my lead vocal here was recorded in one take - no comping. Most of all, I really enjoyed doing it. Especially the bits at the end...

    So what changed from 2015 to now? I stopped smoking in January 2015...

    Dang, I like it just the way it is! Your voice sounds real and fits the lyrical content to a tee!
    I also like the whistle at the end. Nice fun tune!
