A creative twist on the original. QuiƩn es el hombre. I especially like that part in the middle. Nice little reverses matching the wowowowos too.

Thanks very much for your kind review, and yes I did reverse the guitar as a response to the meow ^_^

One of the things I love most about ccMixter is interpretation… the way a song can take a form that the original creator never imagined… This is a perfect illustration of that… And I love how your version adds a seriousness to the lyrics… And I love how you used the lullaby ‘lalala’s”… Thank you for remixing me and creating a new feeling for this piece (at least new to me). !

Thank you very much, your words and tune are very adaptable (a sign of a good song). I really wanted this to be a fun tune and I couldn’t resist contrasting the identity of the instruments and the musical styles.

I used the vocals as they were, no repitching and with only a few minor warps.

clever interpretation Quarkstar…I’d never have thought of doing a flamenco with these vocals and yet they sit in their perfectly…AND your version draws imagery that fits well with Kara’s words…it’s like women as matadors fending off Bulls**t questions from men

Thank you very much.

I do try and listen carefully to the vocals and bring out things that are hinted at in the words or the way that they are sung.

I just love the Flamenco guitar. It’s use here is very original and totally unexpected, congratulations.

Thank you, and thanks to Clarence for the roots of the Flamenco. I realised that the beats fitted the song well, then a lot of cutting and transposing.

the vaguely Spanish approach is a welcome surprise, Q

Thank you very much, I thought a Flamenco was quite macho, and would go along with the theme of examining identity.
