Thanks, as always for listening and for the kind feedback, Steve! It’s kind of scary to strip everything away and really expose one’s voice and playing. So it’s kind of a relief that what I did here still turned out sounding okay.

Cool. You can perform very well without a bag of tricks Tom, and I think that’s proper talent. Excellent!

Live and natural sounds. Great singing with some very high notes in there. Well done!

Thanks, Steve! I tried to go real lo fi on this one – no overdubs. I figured I was due for some optimism in my song choices after recording all of Beck’s Sea Change.

I felt downright awful as I was recording this song, “Already Dead,” and “Side of the Road,” so maybe my state of mind and body at the time added an additional charge to these songs? Either way, I’m glad you enjoyed them and I appreciate your ongoing encouragement, Steve!

This is cool. Chords are nice and I wish I could sing this high!

I’m glad that my recent run of Beck songs resonates with you, Steve! There’s a therapeutic quality to them and I think that aspect manifests in the way I translate Beck’s vocals. It’s a nice bonus that it’s somehow enjoyable for others, such as you, to listen to.

Another new one on me. Your voice suits the Beck songs very well. Good job!

As my old Algebra teacher used to say: Keep It Simple, Stupid! I’ve found that some of the best songs are the most simple. Glad to hear that this approach has translated well to your ears, Steve. Thanks, as always, for listening.

Simple but beautiful song. Nice version Tom!

Indeed, the chord changes were sometimes a bit tricky, but I think I managed to practice them well enough to get a finished product out there without too much trouble. Thanks, as always, for the kind feedback, Steve!

Soulful performance, and good use of your vocal range Tom.

Spot on insights, Steve! I think the author of the song was drawing on Thomas Mann’s “Magic Mountain,” particularly its meditation on the subjective nature of time. For example, time sometimes can seem to stand still when spending time with those we hold most dear.

Beautiful song Tom. It gave me a feeling of introspection. I get what the guest was saying. Very nicely done!

Thanks for the comments, Guest. A log cabin sounds lovely - I hope it is everything you hope it is.

Very nice. Building myself a log cabin so that I can stay there.

Thanks for listening and for your feedback, @TheProods. Calling this a Peanut Butter Cup is a good summation of my collaborations with DoktorDoktor. From a distance you might think we wouldn’t be compatible, but, once you get past any initial reservations, you realize we make a surprisingly good combination, haha!

it’s happening, isn’t it? This is like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Great

Thanks for listening so closely, Steve! I was definitely going for something more emotional here, so it’s cool that you caught that.

Beautiful song, and you put real feeling into it. Well done Tom!

Tom Browning said

Thanks, Steve! It’s been really therapeutic to play around with these Sea Change songs and it’s cool you’re enjoying listening to that catharsis (not everyone would be so keen on listening to the more emotional stuff, so I appreciate you taking the time to listen!)

A bittersweet and emotional song, and you express it with real feeling Tom. Very nice.
