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.
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.

i can definitely hear the Smiths-style in this track. the song really pulls you in — great production, arrangement and solo.

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

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.
