We don’t have dollar bills in Canada, they’re coins and perfectly washable. (Not so hundred dollar bills, though.)

That’s a great sardonic song. The vocal is perfect for the part.

Thanks Bob. Glad you picked up on my inner cynic.

Nice in it’s simplicity, with it’s 80’s analoggy backing. Even your beat choices are vintage 80s. As the Boz from Oz, you’ll always have your own unique sound to me, but love the horns here, just scream terence trent d’arby to me. :)

Cheers MCJ!
The horns credit must go to Southbound. I thought terence trent d’arby when I first heard it too.

Man, I haven’t heard Terence Trent D’arby in ages. I was definitely going for an eighties sound, though. I can’t get away from some things. This kind of stuff was on my radio constantly when I was a kid.

Back to listen to this again, and I just love most of the things in here - the core groove is just about as good as anything out there and your vocals have rarely sounded better.

I’m really torn about it, because I’m not a huge fan of the sampled clarinet sound. To my ears it would be so much better if you replaced with a more pronounced synthetic sound rather than one that tries to sound real.

So. Five jars of pickled herring jars for you for the track; but no beer nor vodka simply because of the clarinet.

Thanks colab, I’ll dip those pickled herrings in my instant coffee. Could have gone all synthetic by discarding the pre-existing solo and substituting some minimal groove bits but I’m such a lazy sob. Maybe from soaking in beer and vodka for way too long. Cheers mate. Thanks for the review :-)

Very clean groove, Scomber.

Very interesting bass line - very vintage like in Visage -She’s a machine. It rocks all song I like it

The vocals, lyrics, and melody to this song fit the music beautifully. I like this one better than my version of “Winda.” Excellent.
