Plus you got a nice country thing going there as well; already you’re blurring the boundaries… Reply mariemm3 May 4, 2006 at 2:54 am Amazing. I agree with Anne: nice country spin. Reply lizardek May 4, 2006 at 3:26 am Don’t quit your day job, Neil. Reply Wendy May 4, 2006 at 4:23 am How romantic, Neil! Reply Bre May 4, 2006 at 4:46 am I’m impressed with your twang!

Reply The Retropolitan May 4, 2006 at 5:32 am How does she keep her hands off you? Reply Mike F May 4, 2006 at 5:38 am You need a verse or two about mama, your pick-up truck, a train, alcohol and America. Neil you redneck. Who knew? Did you get this here? Reply Mike F May 4, 2006 at 5:41 am Sorry here -> http://funnies.paco.to/countrySong.html Reply Melissa May 4, 2006 at 6:05 am How cute are you!!! Reply Margaret May 4, 2006 at 6:07 am Are you about to quit blogging and start song writing? Reply Scarlet May 4, 2006 at 6:15 am Hmm…wow. Reply Kevin May 4, 2006 at 6:27 am Nice! Not how I imagined it as I first read through the lyrics. But better. The a cappella makes it that much better. Congrats. You are no on heavy rotation on my iPod. Reply Simon Cowell May 4, 2006 at 7:09 am (Imagine my English accent) Um Neil, someone’s got to tell you the truth…that was just like a bad wedding singer doing karaoke, that we could have heard at any hotel on any given night. You’re going home! Reply peefer May 4, 2006 at 7:17 am Oh Neil You rock me every way Reply Trixie May 4, 2006 at 7:30 am That took a hell of a lot of balls…I’d never sing in public. That was awesome, Neil! Reply Caitlinator May 4, 2006 at 7:30 am Bravo! Reply Heather May 4, 2006 at 7:43 am Where you doing some heavy lifting or other strenuous activity whilst recording? Some heavy Santa Anas blowing through the house perchance? Reply Heather May 4, 2006 at 7:57 am Were you doing some heavy lifting? Argh. Reply Rebecca May 4, 2006 at 8:02 am That was awesome. You are a rock god. Reply bettyonthebeach May 4, 2006 at 8:08 am So sweet Neilochka! If she doesn’t marry you again for that lovely ballad, she’s crazy! Reply jackt May 4, 2006 at 9:01 am Except for the pauses between the verses hinting that you may not know all the lyrics by heart, I give it two thumbs up! O wait, that’s for movies… Sweet rendition!! Reply Sarah May 4, 2006 at 9:05 am WOW. I am seriously impressed…I did not realize the magnitude of your commitment to this blog, or to Sophia for that matter. 😉 You are a brave and very funny man. I’m even more disappointed that you weren’t at TequilaCon…you will be making the ’07? It’s been set…February 17th in the Pacific Northwest! Reply AWE May 4, 2006 at 9:16 am Sorry, I couldn’t get it to play. I will wait for the video. Reply Dagny May 4, 2006 at 9:54 am *sigh* I will obviously have to try to listen to this once I get home. Reply jenni May 4, 2006 at 10:11 am I’m sensing some angst in your voice. I do have to say, it’s kind of a cross between Buddy Holly and David Lee Roth. Catchy tune though, and I thank you in advance for having it stuck in me head all day. Reply better safe than sorry May 4, 2006 at 11:04 am let’s see, how to put this nicely, ummmm, beautiful lyrics, the country surprised me, ummmmm, beautiful lyrics. maybe you could get some backup singers? or a guitar. Reply chantel May 4, 2006 at 11:09 am I wonder where all the recording contract offers are right now? You should have had plenty of them by now. Reply akaky May 4, 2006 at 12:07 pm Neil, you’re beginning to worry me. Does Sophia know that you’re stalking her now? Reply Heather B. May 4, 2006 at 12:24 pm In the words of Randy Jackson “it was aiight. I just wasn’t feeling it” Or, if it makes you feel better, “I was a little concerned in the beginning there, but in the end you brought it out.” Reply justrun May 4, 2006 at 1:16 pm Wow. You are quite the crooner. Reply Neil May 4, 2006 at 1:44 pm Mariemm3 — Yes, I do feel I’m a “little bit country” at heart. Simon Cowell — screw you, Paula liked it. Heather –That heavy breathing was supposed to be part of the song, showing my inner suffering. JackT — The pauses are for the guitar solos. By the way, if you want to hear some REAL talented blogger/musicians. check out Fictional Rockstar OR Psychotoddler (see side radio.blog). Anyone else there have their music online? Reply Tatyana May 4, 2006 at 2:07 pm No,Neil, but I have my trip to Portugal online-special for your mom. Reply Neil May 4, 2006 at 2:44 pm Thanks, Tatyana. My mother heads for her trip to Spain and Portugal in a few weeks. Now if she only had a blog to write about it! Reply Nance May 4, 2006 at 5:24 pm Neil–I was intrigued by the URL for your song and wondered if it was a website host for recording your own music, so I just put in http://www.learnasyougo.com — YIKES. OH. MY. Does Sophia know about THAT?!?!?!?!?!?!? Reply stephanie May 4, 2006 at 6:23 pm you are a brave, brave man for posting the link to that neil. if sophia hasn’t called you by now, well, it’s her loss. Reply Neil May 4, 2006 at 6:43 pm Nance, that embarrassing NSFW page is left over from a post from November, back when posts about short men were all the rage on this blog, which is somewhat ironic since I’m a tall man. But I still don’t get women’s insane discrimination against dating shorter men. Hey, most men will date a taller woman. What’s the big deal? Anyway, sorry about that NSFW link on your sensitive eyes, Nance. I’ll move it to a safer place on Sunday. Reply judy dodd May 4, 2006 at 8:04 pm Neil, That was a great song I would like a personal performance. Your poker buddy, Judy Reply Lynn May 4, 2006 at 8:28 pm I see a recording career in your future. Reply Bill May 5, 2006 at 12:18 am I have a new and unexpected respect for American Idol. Reply Fitèna May 5, 2006 at 1:19 am This is very intersting indeed! (am I sounding pompous here?! lol!) Except for the pauses – especially when you say “let’s put a …” I thought the song stopped there. It’s sweet though! I guess am criticising because am jeaoulous. No one ever sang a song for me! sniff! Fitèna Reply femme_despoir May 5, 2006 at 6:43 am Neil, dahlink, I have an opening at 11:00 in my studio. I might could squeeze you in for a lesson or two. Though, I’m not really sure it would help, and, of course, you’d have to sign a legal agreement that I offer no guarantees. (I wander off shaking my head wondering, what in the hell was that?) 😉 Reply Dagny May 5, 2006 at 7:41 am So I finally got around to listening to the song. I think the other commenters have covered everything sufficiently. Then I was intrigued by Nance’s comment. Oh my! Reply communicatrix May 5, 2006 at 8:40 am Dude, you totally need to get the band back together. RAWK!!!! Reply Celina May 5, 2006 at 8:43 am OMG! You are so awesome! Any chance I could commission you to write a song for ME?? I’ll even provide you with a list of my likes, dislikes, & idiosyncracies (sp)! Thanks for the belly-laugh, I needed it this morning! Reply LisaBinDaCity May 5, 2006 at 9:15 am Never a dull moment with you two! Reply DawnKelly May 5, 2006 at 10:41 am I just don’t know what to say. What did Sophia say? Reply Brian May 5, 2006 at 3:11 pm That takes some huge sack. Nice! Reply modigli May 5, 2006 at 5:29 pm That is so f*cking cute, Neil! You should put a few guitar chords behind that, and I bet you’d have a top40 hit there. Seriously, I think most rock’n’roll songs only have 3 chords anyway. PS. Is she answering your calls NOW?! 😉 Reply modigli May 5, 2006 at 5:36 pm PS. I JUST noticed you have a “blog crush” of the day on your sidebar! Cute! … When did you start that? Reply Dustin May 6, 2006 at 6:51 pm Could have used more cowbell… Reply Rabbit May 7, 2006 at 8:37 am Neil, you are freaken adorable. Reply He's Dead, Jim! May 7, 2006 at 11:03 am Holy crap! I go away for a while and this is what happens? Yikes. ~HDJ Reply Priss May 7, 2006 at 10:34 pm That was great! A little bit like, you’re sixteen, you’te beautiful and you’re mine. You need a band, “and the Months” should be made flesh. Reply Michele May 8, 2006 at 3:45 pm Beautiful, yet terrifying. I’ve got chills. Reply Pearl May 9, 2006 at 2:47 pm Sounds like you had a blast doing that! 🙂 Reply Leah June 29, 2006 at 10:29 am I am now digging through your archives, and I don’t know how I missed this song the first time. It’s awesome. Good times. I love a little begging. Reply Lisa August 3, 2006 at 8:36 am how sweet and cute. I hope she liked it.
