This is a complete new feeling and a great one too! Very well done. I love the strength in your voice and the vocal additions in the background fit very, very well. Cool bass playing and very nice nostalgic keys. Bravo!

Thanks Hans … you get all the ‘blame’ (hehe) for attracting me to your guitar work and idea. I browsed some of your other stuff and really like your ‘pushing the envelope’ style. More please…

This kind of adding of fun stuff is a cool part of the remix process. I think the additions here add to the mix, and seem like a natural alternative arrangement. On the “featuring”, the “me, I guess” is not the way to use the feature. You’re “featured” by the artist name. The “featuring” is for folks who are used in the mix or for folks who helped you with the mix.
Here you had friends who could have fit there, or Panu as vocalist would have fit there.

I like it when folks take something fun, like Hans Atom’s deservedly Ed Pick work, and do something even more fun with it, as you have done here. A good bit of re-arrangement and remix.

Thank you for your kindness, and thanks for the tutoring on the Featured box. I have no clue what I am doing :)

Great job on this! Your vocal is spot on & assured and adding the backing vocals and instruments as you have is a nice upbeat touch. Double extra mixter points for using Hans on guitar. Anything he plays is a pro boost to the track. Always good to hear one from you. Best, p.

Hans on guitar … that was a wow thing. I am sure you agree, subtle elegance often trumps flash. A good musician knows how to support whatever instrument (even vocal) is out front. Being the same age as you (no doubt) I left the first take warts in to reflect the maturity of the lyrical view … which I totally agree with :) I would like to frame more of your stuff … but time is an issue so my hobby creeps like a snail :) By liking it - you have MADE my week!

The guitar work and the drums pull you in from the first hits… then the bass drags you around. Then the lyrics reach down into your soul and shivers it. These guys are terrific… makes me sound, almost, good :) Thanks for your very kind comments.
