Nice one neo ..... great to see you cover an original from another Chordie member and your interpretation of it.

easybeat .... definately a terrible thing suicide.  I don`t think many people have the answer as each case or individual and what their circumstances leading up to their decision to kill themselves differ.    Just makes me sad that they haven`t got people they can really open up too and pour their guts out too and having someone that will actually listen to them.   Your song is very thought provoking and melancholy.     

Excellent Jim, I think this is a great song.  I like the "soul stability' line in this.  For me, my soul food is going to or for a walk on the beach or into nature amongst the native bush and hills.... great soul food .............. keeps me stable and not cranky lol smile

That was a fun song Phill, really enjoyed it, comments left of Sound Cloud for you smile     

Fantastic song written by you Jim and Jets60 loved how you covered it, well done to both of you smile     

So great to finally hear your voice both talking and singing.  I have to agree with TF, especially the acapella part at the beginning, definitely sounded like Joe Cocker.  Well done Bill, more, more, more smile     

easybeat ... nice, I like what you did with this one, it`s an oldie and a goodie.   Well covered! Extra points for being the first one to perform this month too big_smile
