I took the advice of a few blog readers and tweeters, and sent my new song to a handful of people to see what they thought. My friends are always supportive, but they tell it like it is, and don’t gush unless they really mean it. Here are some of the responses:
Thomas, I’m still dreaming. Seriously this song is more than WONDERFUL, is one of the best things I ever heard in all my life.
You’re dangerous, it’s so beautiful that I have cried a bit, your voice is more beautiful than ever. Even the sounds are really cool.
Thanks for sharing it, I promise I’ll never play it to anyone.
You music touches me in the very deep of my heart.
oh God Thomas that is really beautiful! SO lovely. I love stuff like that. It soars and takes you with it. It made my cry actually.
Well what a lovely song to wake up to.
Wow. That is masterful, haunting, and the tag line is piercing.
I have just listened to ****** about 10 times in a row. This is, in my opinion, the lushest, most beautifully melodic thing I think you’ve done….ever. No joke, no exaggeration. Perhaps I’m biased towards those chord and melody choices and the lush haunting timeless vibe, but…this is just EPIC. As in “tears-worthy”… I’d go on, but I have to go listen to it again.
This may be THE, or at least one of, my favorite things you have done.
Thank you again for sending (and surely embedded this track indelibly into my skull)…
I initially listened to this briefly and the melody really stuck in my head for hours thereafter. Wow, really lovely.
When you said you had another Screen Kiss you obviously generated a lot of expectations. This is going to floor people when it’s released.
It seems like it’s half a thing without an amazing visual element to
complete it. I’m sure you must be seeing visions.
(Ok, so I can’t please all the people all the time!)
