Description
Phukit let's do covers. Well OK. This place is falling apart at the seams so what the hell. I accept the challenge. Anyway, this is something I did to my favourite Cole Porter tune a couple of years ago. I've remixed it. I won't list the soft synths used because I used just about everything I have.

Most likely murdered, you may think. I don't really care tbh! It's just so good to be able to work on something as fine as this tune. It's the first thing I've done for over a year too. Maybe I'll get the muse back and do something original. That would be nice. I've added artwork, but it most likely won't show up.

Thanks for listening as ever, if you do.

Sounds great, Dava
Even on my crappy school system. More than a whiff of Tomita about it, which is fine by me.

A classic.....
Hi Dave
Great sound to be brought back to Macjams to listen to. The email notification works if nothing else...
The arrangement is excellent. Just up my street. I hope you grab the muse. More in this vein would be good anyway if the muse struggles a bit.
Take care.

Well
Don't know the original :-| but this sounds just fine, and good to hear something new from you, night or day ;-)

I just realised I will turn MJ 10 later this year, so I hope to get something ready by then, if the site is still around in September :-)

Thanks and take care,
Henke

Well now...
That's pretty near an original. Certainly the most original cover of Night and Day I've ever heard. Tres cool!

You gave
Night and Day a massive dose of steroids. Powerful, for sure. Yeah, you might have to explain what the artwork looked like. I hope it is a landscape or cityscape. Terrific work. Be encouraged.

Well, this was really nice! I haven't heard the original, but this put me in a mellow and surrealistic mood (and that's something I consider a positive thing).

Take care and keep on posting music please, covers and/or originals!

It's a difference of night and day
Between what I was expecting and what you made of it. Only at 1:03 did I recognize something of the melody line. Oh, and the chords at 1:20. But you kept me mystified for quite a while.

Hi Dave
To me, this might just as well have been called an original - the references are there, but your approach has made it something completely different again.
Which is just as well, as I'm not very keen on MJ doing covers as a general rule.
But I digress :)
This is animated, has depth (musically and emotionally) and is a fine example of your skills with things synthy in nature. Your choice of voices is inspired and I love the rhythm section.
I hope you get a visit from the muse and post some more of these gems.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Night and Day
Much more a reinterpretation than a straight cover, anyway. Love the synth voices you have used and the rhythm section gives it a nice lift. Thanks, Dave. May the muse visit you again very soon. Take care.

Reimagining a classic
It seems like a reimagining, not a cover. I like to think that makes a difference .. both artistically .. and as a way around the strictures of not posting covers. (Aside: a lot of folks are ignoring the ban on covers; I'm sticking with a policy of not commenting on covers unless there is a significant reinterpretation that turns it into something new.) Starting from someone else's idea - especially a classic - and taking it somewhere else: that's a good musical thing to do.

I like what you've done here! Smooth sounds - building on, rather than copying, the original. Much enjoyed!

different
different to anything I've heard recently,but then ive only been listening to radio 4 and occasionally radio 2 when I can't get radio 4.Sort of took me briefly back to th 90's in a kind of jazz way,the tune sounded familar but like it was being played underwater which made me think of portishead.Really enjoyed.on a different note i.e the place falling apart,- I was looking at somebodys song and it came up with message temporarily offline - i tried changing the song number up a few numbers in the url and all of em somwhere around the 72890 mark are all disabled.One of them was yours - http://www.macjams.com/song/72894 is this the kind of thing people have been going mad about? Its a bit worrying if the songs start to drop of the line.sounds to me like theve just run out of space.Hope youre well anyway thanks for commenting on my songs.Rich

Amazing!
Probably as original a cover, and good to listen to as well, as I may have ever heard. Let your composer muse rest while your remixer/arranger/producer muse continues to have a little fun.
Great job.
