    Wow Paul!!! You make me so happy with this wonderful post. It´s another dream coming true. I´ve been waiting for it for such a long time. I write these lines while I´m still in the office. I must hurry up and drive back home. Can´t wait to listen to it. I can never thank you enough. The single wasn´t successful but it got some airplay on german radio stations. The remix by John Potoker just blows me away. Right now I feel so good. Paul you are my hero.

    You’re most welcome Daniel. I love this song too and you are right the remix makes it even better. Andy Taylor did a great production job as well. Right now this is my new favorite 🙂

    Well, you’ve surely made Daniel very happy with this post Paul!! When you started this week of love, Daniel mentioned this single, which got me quite curious. I LOVE when you make your fans happy Paul. You’ve done so much over the years to getting our favorites posted and here’s another to add to the list. Don’t know if I know this one, but by the description and with Daniel’s raves, I know it’s going to be bliss. You are amazing Paul. I can’t wait to get home myself and check this one out as well.

    I really think you are gonna love this one Jeff. I can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂


    Daniel Reply:

    Jeff, thank you for your kind words towards me. I think you’re going to love it too. Paul acts like an angel, he makes our dreams coming true and fills our hearts with so much joy. The best thing in life is music. Like John Miles’ song “Music was my first love and it will be my last”.


    Jeff Reply:

    Hey Guys, I have to say how lucky I am to have discovered this beautiful song courtesy of the two of you. Daniel, like you said, Paul is an Angel!! He really touches on one’s soul with the music he posts. It’s quality, and not just fidelity, but the quality of the song itself. It’s so haunting and gorgeous. I had chills listening to it. I even could say it even brought a tear to my eyes. This is a spectacular piece of music. Oh, and the remix by John “Tokes” Potoker really is grand. I love these ballads with a beat that really pulls on one’s heart strings. Like you said Daniel, I felt I was drowning in musical ecstasy with this one. And I have to say Daniel, you are one of Paul’s sweetest commenters. You have such a passion and eloquence to your reviews. Thank you again for recommending this one to Paul.

    And Paul, I do feel so blessed to have you in my life with all the fine music you post. I really thank my lucky stars for you and the friendship we’ve made all because of the positive energy of music.
