ok.. i\’m back from the no webernet black hole..this is prttey cool man.. i would have liked it more if you synthed the vocal line over the top or something.. would maybe keep it closer to a cover than just using the same intervals but subbed for synths.. dont get me wrong.. i like it.. some great sounds in there.. but i wouldnt class it as a \”cover\”.. a little too ambiguous for that title.. all in all though.. it got me diggin around the sofa for a possible long lost red mitsubishi.. so i must have liked it!
