The jaunty circus melody works because you don’t make it too over-done. I like each boing, rubber-band-stretch and tinkertoy bit of the sound.

You blend the vocals in well with the melody. This could all sound just silly, but it instead works very well because you have a light touch with the mix.

The section with “blessed are the greedy” doesn’t work as well, because the vocals and the melody fit less well there, pitch-wise.

This is a really inventive mix.

Thanks for the comments much appreciated.

Your right the vox do stray away from the melody but I found that when I corrected them too much it made the whole thing too sterile and took away from the intended effect I wanted. It was the craziness of snowflakes vox that attracted me but maybe just a little more pitch correction would have been in ordewr.

Still it was just a bit of fun and I’m glad you liked it.

Not sure how this thumbs up got here. Seems to appear on a lot of my comments without me putting it there!!

Fantastic…! Excellent work..! and this girl has really an incredible voice. One more time, after the remix of Fourstone, i really hear something of Italian in her flow, and your work confirm this sensation. Remember me this Italian pop of the 70’s. Great work..!!

I could easily picture Roger Waters busting a gut at this one… whew! The sheer pointed boinginess of it…Acrid is the flavor of Radiotimes’ take on current American politics… Zippy’s got my vote again this election year.

This cheered me up!
I had wondered about using the pella but couldn’t figure out what to do with it - this is the answer :)

imagination and innovation are at a premium in todays world…you seem to have a lions share. This was quirky, fun and the tongue-in-cheek aspects grace the carnivalesque embellishments.

It’s like some bizarre Tom Waits song, and that is saying a lot.
I love it!
