About this Song

The performance credits should include me as I only used the Vocal and drum stems, & even the drum stems are dialed back a bit.

I played/performed/programmed all the parts in a day. I also added a bridge/breakdown that wasn't there before.

about to start on the other song now. these were really great voices to work with. I really enjoyed it.

As soon as I heard the first few bars I knew it had to be a disco arrangement.

I lived through disco but I was on the "disco sucks" side in 1978 when it died a horrible death

but as I matured I was able to differentiate corporate mandated disco from a band that could really play who chose to arrange their music in a disco format, hence this arrangement.

it is that corporate influence I fear often seeps into popular music regardless of the genre and it's just as alive today as it was in 1978

just say no to the suits is all I am saying, no matter how many lines of coke they promise you...

very under-appreciated, it was very original & nothing like anything else, unique & above my pay grade for that time, i'd mix it much better now but the tracks & concept are solid

92 plays & no likes, not even a peep out of the artists behind this, i still feel like I hit it out of the park given what I had to work with, no accounting for taste, i got a lot of traffic on soundcloud from it, random people would come listen and leave a like

80 listens as of 08-16-18. I always felt this arrangement was a turning point in my process & was actually "good". not one peep out of sleeveless tho... who knows if they actually listened to it. somehow I have a hunch they are less interested in finding new musician/producers than they are with finding people who have big social media saturation

it is disappointing that this can not be edited, please contact me when we get closer to the deadline or whenever you wish to get the most up to date mix, at the very least a mix that doesn't have the last note chopped off
