This one will probably take at least 3-4 listens to grok the complexities of the melody. but I'd be pleased if you listen at all.

I listened but can't understand most of the lyrics.

Doesn't sound like what I call a novelty tune?

Pretty rocking. Definitely one of your more interesting songs. Well done.

I enjoyed the song, Al, and I really like the topic. It's a trip down memory lane for me as I also LOVED playing pinball back in the day (in my teens, there was a little/new cheesesteak place that opened and had one machine. We would lift the front window, and spin the game wheel to the max number of games, and play for hours and hours....for free! The best of it is that the owner showed us how to do it and gave us his blessing to do so).

Anyway, this tune captures the vibe of those days, and brought back some nice memories.

You know, with all of the inedible video games that there are, none could every be what pinball is (a good pinball machine, and setup to play fairly, anyway)....but I'm sure you know that.

Also, nice job on the video...you do a really good job with your vids.

Thanks for checking it out and I really loved your review because it got into the essence of what the song is about.

Re: the video, don't know if you noticed but everytime I sang about the ball going down I matched it with a clip of the ball going down. Was particularly proud of that; heh.

I'm actually fine with you saying that. I don't particularly enjoy making videos and I often think if I had this all to do over again it might've been better if we did without. I think the music shines more without them.

It's not the worst thing you've ever done.

Instrumentally I'd give it a 6.5

Vocally it's a solid 4.25

Once my buddy and me melted down a Jungle King we racked up so many free games on it...the bar owner came running downstairs to the game room as smoke was billowing out of it and yanking the plug out of the socket yelling the whole time...he kicked us out when we asked to him cash us out our free games like a casino haha...

Thanks all of you for checking it out. Grits, if I ever did one where you liked my singing, that would be worrying.

Fonts, I had a situation like that, no machine blew up but there was thid Quick Draw game at a bowling alley, won so many games and I hated leaving games on the machine, end up having to go when the center shut down, but for the first time ever I got tired of a machine.

I like playing the most when I'm high. Back in my primest playing days I'd wear rainbow glasses too.

I'll second that. Back in the day, while partaking, I liked playing a good pinball machine and my all time favorite video arcade game, Galaga.

Iíd love to have a pinball machine.

Probably would be the end of me getting anything else done.
