And two wrongs don't make a right but two rights, they can't go wrong

I wasn't kidding about writing about Swingfly's new single, "Touch And Go," until everyone realizes how fantastic it is.



If you like pop, how can you not like that bliss-inducing female-sung chorus? If you like rock, how can you not like the instrumental backing with its bouncing percussion beat and tambourine (well, granted, you can't hear it as well in the low quality video audio)? If you like rap, how can you not find Swingfly a great narrator? Those three genres meshed together and enhanced with, once again, a fantastic sense of melody--it sounds cheesy to say and a song this fun may not necessarily be seeking this label, but there's something just a little magic about "Touch And Go." It would be a perfect end of summer song (the pop-rock part of the song sounds tailor-made for the waning days of summer), but spring will do nicely as well.

I've got to admit it's not knocking me off my feet, but I like it. Maybe a few repeat plays.

Very positive summer song, I'm quite excited about Swingfly album.

I'm glad you at least like it, John!

I'm hoping he keeps going in the direction he's got going on now--he's got some great producers backing him, too, so hopefully the results will live up to expectations.

Incredibly catchy song. It might take a little time to grow on me, the same thing happened with "Singing That Melody" and now I love that, so I expect the same thing to happen with this one too.

I hope so! By the way, I loved reading that you saw the music video for "Singing That Melody"! Great news.
