Wow, this is impressive. It feels like an american version of the Smiths!

Thanks to people like you, there is a light that never goes out.

Thanks MCJITB,


Joe had cut up one of my guitar tracks to do this originally and later on I’d used his drum track on something else so I felt connected to this in a way. I started again from scratch changing the chords just a little to better follow the vocals. How it sounds like the Smiths is a mystery to me, must be Joe’s vocal. I just tried to do a little tribute and play him out one last time.

“Every heart has an expiration date.” So very sad. :(

“You’ll not cook green eggs and ham for me anymore.” So very funny. :)

Agree with McJack, there’s a certain Smiths flavour in this song I’m sure Joe would have liked. I know he had a weakness for British eccentrics. Like Morrissey. Good work.

Not really familiar with the Smiths, but now I’ll have to check them out : )

It’s not that this reminds me of any one particular Smiths song ( maybe this one perhaps) but the arrangement, with it’s pop hooks paired with over the top delivery of angst filled vocals and lyrics, is a Smiths trademark.

It’s probably down to Bert Weedon

Really warm track that says “goodbye” to the poet and artist we’re going to miss in the days to come. Thanks for this unreal_dm, nicely done.

Fantastic mix on this Paul. If I didn’t know better I would have thought it was a full band. Love that twangy guitar :)

Wow. Well-deserved Ed Pick. I would have to say it put me more in mind of Housemartins/Beautiful South, but I certainly can understand the Smiths/Knopfler comparisons as well. At the end of the day, it’s a lovingly crafted tribute to a talented artist who left us far too soon. I’m trying to write something for Joe myself, hope it comes out as well as this did.

This is wonderful. I enjoyed listening to this well produced remix. It sounds very professional and mastered extremely well.

This is something to aspire to.
