I had previously recorded a version of this song in September 2010 and April 2011, a version that was more or less in the ballpark with LSU’s version. I thought that first moron version was okay, but I knew that it needed something else. Then, just days before going out to Colorado to mix the record, I completely scrapped the old version and started again. Humanly speaking, this sweet and bouncy tune came out of nowhere. I was and am amazed at its elements–even the harpsichord is just the right voice as the solo riff….I am grateful to God for such a beautiful cover of a great Michael Knott song. All moron covers on prior CDs suffer from lack of creativity and my lousy singing, but this song–FINALLY–nailed it right. In fact, I liked it so much that I scrapped three other covers that I had recorded and was planning to include on this CD (“Always on My Mind”–with altered lyrics to be the words of regret of a post-abortive mother, “Bee Hoping” by Joy Electric, and “Unseen Warrior” by Michael Card) because they (my versions of them) did not hold a candle to this song and production.
