An oldie but goodie pella, and a nice fitting treatment.

Thank you. Probably the most remixed song on ccmixter, but it was the only Keytronix remix that had instrument samples.

Sorry for not giving you too much to work with. Though I like that mix pretty much. Well modified use of the harmonica…..:D

I really enjoyed using as much of the samples as I could. Thanks for putting them up.

It’s not good… it’s fantastic! Nicely done, Quarkstar. Simply loved the approach you took with this mix. It’s better than the stuff you hear coming out of the radio these days.

Thanks, I love the opportunities that the Secret Mixter brings.

I still find good new music, sadly not a lot on the charts and a lot of it here on ccmixter.

Thank you, I had the basic concept done in a couple of days, then it was just checking it during the week to make it sound better.

There is a How I Did It that you may find interesting.

This is charming.

You guys were lucky to get each other, such great songs.

I think I have to thank you for the way this song made me feel :P

Gorgeous… sensitive mix… makes me think of some of the best Sarah McLachlan songs… I like this so much.

Thank you for your beautiful comments, I must admit I have only listened to a couple of versions of Lies, so I came to it quite fresh.

A very fresh approach to this. I also like the openness and letting it breathe. Well done!

Beautiful with some lovely harmonizations, and as noted above, space to breathe. You seem to have captured a particularly romantic seed from and made it blossom in the track. Really nice work. Bravo my dear!

I loved the song to start with and nurtured what was there. I think its a song that strikes many chords with people, but is just too short, two verses are not enough. I want to go through the pells and find something similar that I can work with.
