The Ghost In You

Get Flash to see this player.

I don't usually post covers, but I've been in somewhat of a musical rut for a while and I'm hoping I can kind of reignite my creative spark.

This is a tune from one of my favorite groups, and one that's been very influential to me, The Psychedelic Furs. It's pretty much a straight forward cover, except I only used guitars, no synths. And to keep in the 80s spirit of things, I used my strat and Steinberger bass.

Hope you enjoy and hopefully this will spur some original stuff coming soon.

80's Rock
Nice cover but it was like a new song to me as I was not aware of the group or it's music. Well recorded and your vocal was great, especially the multi tracked parts where you sang around yourself.

Like others, I am not familiar with the song, or the band, but I like what you have presented here, Joe. The multi vocal parts work especially well. Of course, the musicianship is going to be good. The guitar replacing, what I guess is the synth part, works a treat. Hope this helps you break out of a rut. Take care.

A Nice Cup Of Joe...

Excellent job of covering the sound and spirit of that '80s vibe in this recording, Joe.

Very well done and I hope it reawakens your Muse. ;)
