Nice upbeat take on Brad’s track and the added keyboards fit perfectly.

Thanks. I wanted to try to make it sound like a festival for the peace and the good mood..

A ditto ditto mix has such an immediately recognizable sound, yet never predictable- and always a pleasure…
Very different from the album version, but everything fits like a glove!

What a brilliant take on this! ditto ditto for president, prime minister, whatever. (Stop the war.)

“President”..? Yes, good idea, when i see mine (the french one), and his beautiful wife (singer too). Just for her, i’d like to be a president..Thanks..

Brilliant! Inspiring, energizing — I am ready to march out into the street with my placard, some disobedience, and a lot of love and hope!

I like the music behind this very much.
It would have been very nice to hear some variation in the drums though or have a build-up, since it is a very hectic/busy sort of rhythm.

Yes, you’re right, and not only the rythmn could be improved. Some harmonys, some variation too. But i wanted to do it in a kind of spontaneity, improvisation, as, John Lennon had done his song “Give peace a chance”..in his bed..
Anyway, thanks for your coming..

This has a real live feel, like on a (anti war) festival.
Great keyboard playing and choosen sounds.
Now after a second listen, I know what colab meant by a “busy” rhythm.
I feel like I have danced on it. Phhhh……

every summer has a stand out hit in my world. 2006-crazy by gnarls barkley for instance.

ditto dittos lets stop the war is my 2009 summer hit. i will always remember 2009 as when i heard this track for the first time.

thanks ditto.

Ditto Dittos Lets Stop the War remix is so damn catchy, especially the chorus. The chord arrangements and sound choices are colorful and happy, though they add a darker irony to the lyrics.

Not sure if this was intended, but it works for me!

Great job!
