The song is absolutely amazing. I'm not surprised it's your best piece, it's so full of magic and wonder. It really does make you reminisce on the past and feel at peace.
I really don't mind the squeaks, it really brings an old feel to the song and highlights the name.
Just read the Author Comments - although the squeak noise was not intended as part of the song, you should keep it as it really awakens the senses and could be used as a change in one's story or if they were remembering a late pet rodent... AND now I know why I heard some guy dry coughing around 1:13-1:14. If anything needs to be removed, it's that guy.
Surprised that no one else caught that. It's really bothersome.
I actually really like the squeaky pedal. It reminds me of when I used ride on swings.
Amazing. Just wow. Any chance I could get sheet music of this? ^^
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
