Oh yeah, that’s some top notch electro rock. I was sorry to hear it end. Very cool sound combo, the guitar, the synths and of course your words.

So glad you’ve stopped excusing for possible bad tech because this trackĀ“s got super sound quality. And it’s powerful, both musically and thematically. Fantastic track. Very impressed.

Dang, Susan
You really rocked ABN’s synth club music and Haskel sounds great.
Great vocal and lyrics

Massive dance track. The mix of dirty electronic sound with the guitar spiced up with your clear voice.
Well done

If Blondie and The Motels could be fused with Hip Hop, you might get something with this kind of feel. Although the singing is classic SJo, and much better than either of my scenarios would be.

I don’t find the songs mood contradicts the lyric at all. Information about what is happening to us is coming so fast and furious, that it almost seems like what is happening to our world is in some kind of frenetic stop time.

This captures it nicely.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments dear Admiral — a new perspective, that makes perfect sense to me now!

Cool dance track. Reminds me of X-Perience - Magic Fields tune from the mid 90’s

This may be one of the greatest rock and roll songs ever recorded.

I think you may be a bit biased.

And once again, thanks for the stellar guitar contributions. You made this track rock hard!

It’s always interesting when stepping out. This reminds me another (commercial) remix, when Amanda Seyfried sung Gimme gimme gimme in the movie “Mamma mia” about Abba. A fantastic song, even better than the original, very modern yet recalling a ‘70’s way of making music. I agree with HEJ31, this is rock, but with techno dressing!

So much for sitting down and having a quiet dinner lol. Since I usually eat on the run ,I’ll just eat and dance.
This is one killer groove, along with the vocal lines and the lead guitar, well it’s happening!

Superb. I was concerned that the policy change to default license would impact ccmixter. I return to find great things happening better. Great song.
