Thank you Martijn…not sure what exactly make it intense? (does it sound rubbish on monitors?)

No no, it sounds perfect. To my ears, your remix makes the vocals intense. It’s really nice

puh….ok…now I can sleep well. laugh…thanks a lot…and honestly - the vocal polishing work was taking most of the time.

An unusual combination of a relationship song, a comic song and a protest song. Your backing track moves it along nicely, definitely held my interest. (And thanks for sharing the piano.)

I believe the ironic approach of protesting is the only possible way currently. At least this is how I interpret Roberts text.
And glad to hear to have caught your attention.

I have just added more samples (from the alternative version) - orchestral..

Really intriguing. You’ve put the vocal in a musical context I just wouldn’t have anticipated. I don’t know whether you’ve done it deliberately, but you’ve also made the relationship at the heart of the song seem more real, rather than just a peg to hang a few jokes and a message on. And even if you did this in a spare couple of hours, it’s typically well produced.

Glad you like it.
Honestly….I made myself thoughts about the song and create it in my mind. this time the mix was finished prior starting it. the “handwork” just took me a few h.
The “alternative” mix took a while longer.
