A master of many styles of music. Heimlich Smithers is not from above the Mason Dixon line. This needs some JeniSue backup vocals.

Oh for the love of Gott In Himmel! It's fun, it's a cover(?), and it is done reasonably well considering...Loves it for the fun of it, but my vote is more reality-based...I feel this has been over-scored a bit, so it's my duty as sherriff to knock it down a peg...This is nothing personal, I assure you, and I don't relish my job at times like these...(You probably could do great in the drunken asian market..This could get businessmen in the mood for karayoke!)

Now kiddies listen up.....this is the way a country bass should sound. Oh how I miss Hee-Haw! Your beautiful baby, don't ever change.

wow, thanks for getting back to me, I gave this 3 listens, and really adore Moovis and Elmer and RuSTY! I like the way QC still slides rejection reasons into me you and Scott's songs, maybe Bratties as well. It makes it more fun. I know there must be a venue for such music, but not sure where. It has such an animated vibe: all phosphorescent glowing heart filled lovey thing I'd think that would translate into some great anime Japanese video type stuff or something. I bet u and I could be huge in Asia. Maybe- oh and the vocal range you've got kicks thorough ass.

Quite the good ear sam-muh-man. There are just two vocals (becoming three). The lower vocal wave form was copied to a duplicate track. I panned the two duplicates hard left and right and then slipped the right track back in time ever so few milliseconds to give it a stereo effect. It effectively becomes a sort of chorus without modulation. Or rather a subtle delay effect. Now that I have kicked down this top secret mixery, Elmer is probably going to kill me. I don't think the fuzz bass was intentional. That was just bad recording that I ended up liking.

I didn't know this was a Johnny Cash cover--It was just a suggestion that I could imagine with a voice like his, he could do this song justice. For some reason, there is a quality about your voice and vocal mannerisms that is a tad "twangy," for lack of better word...And for whatever reason(maybe I saw him sing it once when I was small or something) I could just imagine J.C. being just right for the song. Wierd.

I'd still like to hear a punk version...It's what Johnny would've wanted...

oh my this is stunning and beautiful,
if all country was like this I'd have no problems: is this 3 vocal tracks, or how did you split the 2 lower register tracks.

I love the base and the simple instrumentation. I love Rusty and Moovis. Cheers.

I don't know why qc hates my music so much. Is it because my voice is muppety? I am not sure if I got that quite right. Well if it is, I've got bad news. I am a little low on spare change and I ain't going to be able to afford that voice change anytime soon.

That girl was on the right track with the long black coat statement. She sure knows music. I don't know if this is his or if anyone else did it, but I have always listened to Johnny Cash sing this. I am pretty much a fan.

I was stoked by the Everly Bros comparison. I had the Bird Dog 45 when I was a kid. I dug their style.

Twist away fellows and fellowettes. Whats a battlebot?

I did the twist during this...is that okay with everyone? There seem to be a rash of songs like this in the battle right now...thank God they weren't up against each other, it would have taken all the fun out of it. Oh, if only Red Fizz became a permanent venue for today's battlebots.

don't know this tune (it's a cover?) but I'd say you got the Sun Studios/Everly Brothers style nailed down pretty well. But then there's that anachronistic really heavy bass that throws things out of whack. Interesting

As a song, this seemed to have all the right components. It seems almost taken right out of another era in time--The lyrics are "plain speak" instead of "poetic," and there's nothing wrong with that for a tears-in-your-beer country you-done-me-wrong song. I could see this being done in a more serious way by a guy with a really deep voice and long black coat. Or a woman could torch it up, or a punk band could bring out all the buried angst. It's versatile that way.
