  • I really liked the up tempo of the song with the mix of UP train shots and the performer. This was the most professional and appealing of the June entries.

  • GAWD, Mel!
    How could I NOT vote for yours. Not only are you a friend, but ya shot this literally in my BACK YARD. I noticed you 'customised' the UP Theme Song to fit Blues, and it's the BEST rendition I have ever heard! Perhaps THEY (Uncle Pete) will adopt it and retire the old cornball one.It's so singy songy it makes ya sick!
    When I say my "back yard" I mean it.I spent 31 years of my LIFE with UP. See them big ass diesels? I RAN 'em in the mountains, on the prairie, a little in California and Nebraska and let's not leave out Wyoming. I got to live my childhood dream doin that. What a mind blower to see ya strummin on top of the 49th Street viaduct! Been over a lot of those shots ya took. Great Vid! See ya soon! :-)
