Cool drums get us started, and key nicely into the vocals. The organ-sound is good, and the little stutter-step in the percusison works nicely with it.

This kind of pop deserves a bouncy, mildly roving bass just as you’ve set it up here.

I wonder why they don’t make solid, soul-inflected pop like this anymore, without it sounding artificial. It’s a delicate but rich irony that a remix after the fact sounds more spontaneous than many a “live” recording might in this live-then-Pro-Tools age.

I keep thinking that a much more prominent Philadelphia wash of strings will
pan everywhere the way it might have done in 1971, but it’s very nice with the lighter touch here.

This is your customary solid work, of course—but it’s also really great pop music.

Cool! Very sunny and happy song :) I enjoyed a lot. Maybe the drums (loops ?) could be a tad more original, well a matter of taste. Cool arrangement and orchestration. Thanks to share!

Love the drum loop in the intro, but then you flip it to that sweet reggae groove. Nicely done. Really nice vibe you got going here. That change at 2:25 reminds me of Lisa Stansfield’s All Around The World. I’m not sure why, they don’t really sound a like, maybe it’s just the taking part. Any way……..
A job very well done.

it’s only fitting that you’d post this while I’m traveling. Thanks to the goodness of the intarwebs, a trusty old laptop and a set of headphones, I still get to enjoy this in a hotel room 1000k from home. Thanks!

And I agree, this is great pop music! Who would have thought that it would become such a rare commodity. So it’s extra special to hear your remix in the spring of 2008!

Ah, now this here’s more like it. The galdanged hitmaker back on the J.O.B. I ain’t lyin, junior. Course, when ya got a vocal package like this here to work with you’d hafta be a complete moon-calf to screw it up. Maybe I should give it whirl, then? Nah, just kiddin. Or am I?

This comeback sounds so joyful and for my thinking you expressed very well this feeling.
I think Spinmeister still mentioned it, this site offers a lot of awesome music in various styles as electronic, hiphop, ambient etc, but it is always nice for me to hear “pop” songs like this tune. If there should be anytime sort of lesson from you how to do a “good” pop song, please make a reservation for me.

Really nice song.

Finally got around to hearing this. Being in my mid-thirties, I couldn’t help but think of the bright colors, and irony-free happy montage sequences, in many a video (and especially animated) feature in the 80’s… those bells really completed the mental picture for me. The only thing that didn’t delight me was some kind of flutter artifact on the vox, but it’s a small price to pay for this sunny goodness :-)

Vocal issues were accepted when i did it, see my notes.

A Double tracked stereo mp3, with a 3 sec reverb at 20 bpm slower than this and this is not how its sung either so there are word edits, so all in all not a good starting point for what should be a perfect pitch pop delivery.

But hey its a great working idea for me, and ime glad you liked it.

Maybe Zae might read this and give us the seperated parts to work on or i may even resing it, i mean Eurovision is not far off :-)
