Slap echo on the lead vocal, throughout the entire tune, sets the stage. It gives it an exciting, live concert feel, and it reminds us today of the sound of the mid-70s.

The echo is tucked in underneath the vocal -- lower in level, and filtered -- adding motion and a bit of rhythmic bounce, but not too much distraction.
