RD: Iíve always loved this song, but missed the organ, in general, on the Strange Days album. The synth strings also sounded a bit thin to me. So I produced it more the way I thought Procol might do it, only with more harmonies, because I like harmony.

I threw in a bunch of fun references, to make some tributes within a tribute. Can you pick out the Salty Dog drum fills? Or Homburg and Repent Walpurgis drum parts? I put in a little Rambling On piano and even a Beatle lick, but Iím not saying what song: you have to guess. Journeyís End makes its way in there too. Wreck of the Hesperus inspired the horns. I donít usually put that much delay on my voice, but that was part of my Matthew tribute. My main instrument is guitar but I just didnít hear one for this recording. I thought maybe an acoustic rhythm Ö but then I felt it would clutter the track.

She Makes Me Feel is a nice idea for a song, a great title. I had a good time recording it.
