Upbeat piano pop. In my opinion one of the straight up catchiest songs on this site.

OatP and Friends and REVIEWS!!
Super fun over-the-top- tap-your-feet- can't-help-but-smile pop. Can't get enough of the piano fill, works well as both a hook and a background color. Love the lyrics, sweet, honest and marvelous. Also nice to have a song about this kind of love, gives it it's own sense of self. This is another one of those straight from the heart tunes that just grabs you and won't let go. Love the horn at 1:40 nice fun and brief and back into this high energy but low volume piece. The clapping, the smooth vocal work and the moving bass line all work together to force anyone with a heart to smile at this.

Retro Robert's Radio Reviews
"Cary's Here" would not be out of place on a 'Sesame Street' episode, or as a live band performance on SNL. This song has everything: hand claps, ooo's, ahhh's, a brief (too short) horn solo, and a super catchy chorus! That said - the song is a personal recollection of father/child communication. It's heartwarming message wrapped in sugary pianos, guitars and honest vocals.

Vegetation Station
This shoulda been the single from ADBEA2. On the cusp of my first born, this song takes on extra special meaning.

The Originals
One of the originals here,and with this song from 2004 Cary's here, its a upbeat fine song, Todd has been around for some time as you can see, a song about being a Dad, genuine and thoughtful, very beatlesque and umping happy, Todd is a solid supporter and brings good energy to IMP and old established iacmusic dude from way back welcome to "The Originals" Todd bt
