Amazing find/link - melody of Janine in The Long Road. This is another that is the cream of the crop for me from this bunch. I can't get enough of this - the opening eases me into a song I love so much already. Fantastic.

What a lovely track indeed. It took me a few minutes at first to find it, but actually that pause in The Long Road is a moment I love, which is why I picked it up straight away.

What is it with this song but this is fast becoming my album favourite! It's so good and I absolutely love the guitar in this!

In fact I whipped out one of my MK strats last eve and played along!!!!

I really like this song, it is the one song on the album that got me, it is the type of MK song I like.
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

I like the song. I believe this one is pretty much literall, about a town and ordinary residents facing the changes after the "boom times" have passed, while not the same but something between Sucker Row and Telegraph Road, and in a way My Heart's Never Changed.

Maybe it is about a traveling rodeo of a sort, like the booth boxing from the "All Comers"...

Which in turn puts me in a doubt it could be about touring as Dusty pointed

I still can't pick my favorite song from the latest album, but there are very often days when I have to listen to Janine:)
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

Totally overrated song IMHO.  Chorus has me reaching for the sick bag.  Very nice "solo" but just when you're settling down for it it stops.  Quite indicative of the album tbh, especially the title track.  It does add some pace to the album though.
Go check the chord progression at 2:13



I'm glad somebody else noticed that. When 'The Long Road' came out I had it stuck in my head just as much as 'Janine' has been since the albums release.

Loved it too, a friend had bought the vinyl and that's how I discovered the album.
It's a good, well-crafted song, ideal for a road trip.
