Description
Bit of a cheat this. I posted this I think in my second or third year, but without any outside help, and no real instruments. I worked with Yeman on a revamp of this, and improved it, with his help, 1000%.

Many thanks to Yeman for his talent and great ideas and patience.

...a strong Bono vibe here. Very well-done and enjoyable.

I was about to say how much I liked
the sparse arrangement - and then the flood gates opened and the song took off. Very cool Really well put together and performed. Excellent collab.

Can
a song be too good?
I loved the original but your right this is better.
The only thing I didn't like was that it ended.
Just great Steve. Just great!
Cheers,
Charlie

I think I heard this on the radio this morning, just kidding, but it should be played there, your voice is a killer, neat git from "Yeman", the only nitpick I have to say about this, it's no download...lol... Nice work on this guy's, dig it... Cheers

darker place
Steve,

This is good listening! For me, the real sounds and slower tempo put this song in a darker place that somehow make the song more real rather than just a great tune...if that make sense?

Apologies for my lapse on MJ...Always make a beeline to my computer when I get word you've posted a new song though!

from ear to ear...
one cannot listen to this, one experiences it instead. A grand sound, beautiful guitar work, esp. 3:08 (Yeman, is that you?) amazingly expressive singing (or not so amazing, it is Steve after all, so the bar is high), love it.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Whatever that percussion thing is,
...it totally works for me... And it's the kind of thing I never would have chosen or thought of myself...

Another great vocal, Steve....

Is Yeman doing the guitar? Other bits?

I like the organ sounds in the 2:45 ish range....

Sounds great, guys....

1:25
Steve and Yeman,
Really amazing new version of this truly wonderful song. I, too and transported by the tender thinness opening up to the lush fullness at 1:25 just gorgeous. Those tinny drums are are just perfect. The blistering lead is just awesome, wish it had continued for just a bit longer, couldn't get enough!

I just played
the original again from my itunes Echoroom collection. Still sounds superb. But this... this is an absolute monster track.
Definitely radio err everything ready! Not sure if anyone listens to the radio any more.
Please sir - can I have one (a copy)?

Steve, Yeman
This is so good. Love the guitar tone and the relaxed low vox in the intro. Lots of dynamics, mountains and valleys. Beautiful song.
Oh, heck, I'm going to fav this one even if I bury mine in the fav list. You guys are just too good :-)

Stopped What I Was Doing
I was about to get in the bath and was looking at macjams on the iPhone, saw Give in to Love in the Fan Picks and immediately stopped what I was doing so I could come and listen to this on the good speakers. This has always been one of my favorites of your songs along with Breathing Water and Believe This.

I still love the original for some amazing rawness that come through in your vocal that I've never heard on any of your other performances, but HOLY COW is this ever an amazing version of this song. Yeman's guitar towards the end just gives me chills (Every time I see your name, Yeman, I smile). Very nice tone on the piano too. Gorgeous mix. An excellent example of how real instruments bring a special energy to a song. Went back and listened to the original just now and though it was a personal fave, as I said, this version kicks it in the boy bits and pushes it down the hill.

Thanks for making music, Steve. Please don't ever stop.

Glad I didn't arrive too late to the party... Is Lisa still in the tub? LOL!

This is massive guys. Yeman - you rock dude! You've done a brilliant job with your guitar work. Love the heavy parts as well as the perfectly pluck quiet parts. Nice balance.

Steve, you never cease to amaze me with your songwriting. Aside from your gigantic vocal presence you really made a big production out of this.

Glad I was one of the first to realize it!
