    ------ About the song Any Day Above Ground performed by James Reyne

If ever you needed to hear vocal chords, steel and wood in harmony, look no further than this beautiful track. From the heartfelt and evocative lyrics to the dynamic and incredibly controlled vocal performance, underpinned by a gorgeous and simple chord structure played to artful and subtle strength, this song simply pulls your ears front centre, then punches your heart with a jaw dropping and quite possibly the most lyrically expressive way of telling someone how important they are set against a wonderful melody that you cant help but take a deep breathe and FEEL the song....this is a truly great piece of songwriting and a delivery that sets the bar for any wannabes hitting us with tales of beautiful subway romance or cannonball floating etc, etc. Buy it, turn it up, listen up and face the music.
James Reyne. What it must be to have this out of your head and safely documented....I doff my cap to you sir.
