Wow . I am knocked out that you have put so much effort into this.

There are real shades of Steely Dan and Donald Fagan in here. And the brass arrangement is very authentic.

If anything your backing is better than my vocal but you have made a great mix with some complex chord changes especially in the Mid 8th that i would never have come up with ,

Its great so thanks for taking the time over it. :-)

Steely Dan, Donlad Fagen, brass & complex chord changes. It’s a pretty precise line-up of the reasons for why I started making music again after a 12 year break.

And, yes! I spent some hours making it, but accompanied by your velvet voice it was a great pleasure :) Really, I’m not joking!

Thanks for sharing the great cappella, for listening and for giving your positive comments.

I have listened to the original first before writing this little review. It makes me appreciate your effort even more. The vocals remind me of Tears For Fears and your version seems to bring that out even better. Very nice!

Hi Subliminal! Thanks for againg taking the time to listen/commenting on my stuff. It’s very much appreciated. I was a fan of TFF. Perhaps one could make new music to this cappella, arrange/mix it more TFF-esque?
Jolly good idea, actually! See you around!

hehe - I have to confess, I had serious TFF dreams while working on this :-)

What an intriguing remix. Lots of detailed touches in the arrangement and a few surprising chord progressions pushing the envelope.

Very generous - thanks a lot! Actually, you are describing my approach to making music - it’s just that I usually screw up :)

Next thing on my to do list is learning some basic mixing skills. Still lacking capacity in that area.

Nice work Mullion. Funny how you say you need basic mixing skills. I’ve been listening to this pell dry and unaccompanied for some time and the rhythmic complexity of it alone scares me away. You have gotten the timing down very nicely and as the others have said you have really taken the song somewhere entirely different which is the mark of a truly original remix. A little work on technical junk should be easy for you, but this effort is not bad at all. Congratulations.

Thanks for being so supportive, essesq! About the rythmic feel of it, I guess I was just lucky because I pretty much went with what I layed down on the first “take”. But I did, however, spend a lot of time working out the rest.

Cheers,

Hallo - nice to see you back here!

This is very nice work. The harmonies are really good, and complement LS’ vocals nicely without feeling forced. I think you’ve shown great restraint and never overdone anything which is one heck of a feat considering the number of instruments playing.

Re: TFF - knowing you can do good vocals, I would love to hear you do a TFF-like backing vocal to support these ones. :)

Did it occure to you that I might not have more to give :) Thanks, I did have to clean up and organize during the mixing, and a whole lot found its way to the trash can. I’m aweful at making decisions abt what fits and what doesn’t. Especially at 2 o’clock in the morning.

I could maybe give some punch to a Shout-chorus, but I’m not sure where it wd fit in musically. Thematically it would be fine though, since it’s a fact that Everybody (she) Want’s to Rule Your World, and her Shouting is what leads you to The Wrong End of Love :) Thanks for taking the time and for the nice words! See yah around!
