Sounds really good @oorlab - a really nice cover of @CrystalSuzy song.

I like the interpretation of the original song - the guitars sound great as does your voice.

It still has that whimsy that the original has and it also has a 60s feel. Could have been an entry for the Beatles comp!

cheers


I'm so thrilled with Oorlabs cover of my song  :) I've listened to it several times, and just love it  ::heart:: thank you so much for putting so much thought and sensitivity
into this track  ::thumb::  It's so different, yet you've managed to retain the essence/vibe of the song  ::Note:: You got my vote  ::Suzy::

Impressive cover, @oorlab . I have nothing but admiration for this. The song seemed to really shift after that bridge section because my emotions started to stir at that point. And what is music if it doesn't make the listener feel something, right?

A beautiful interpretation of @CrystalSuzy 's song, 'Come With Me.'

Wow @oorlab you're soo creative.. I loove this one! I already loved @CrystalSuzy 's original, and it is such a surprise to hear your interpretation... This version proves the idea of this competition works as intended!
I love all the different fusions going on.. Acoustic ballad, 80's beat (and even latin beats), nice electric guitar parts, very beautiful vocals/harmonies..
AND you maintained the dreamy feel... FanTAStic!! So well done!
I agree with @Jurgen here:

It still has that whimsy that the original has and it also has a 60s feel.
cheers

Respect man!

Very cool cover @oorlab ......I really like the guitars in this especially that nice lead part right at the start.

Wow @oorlab - this is a great cover of a fantastic song.. Sounds really great!! @CrystalSuzy I loved your version and I love this one just as much... I agree that you've retained the feel and magic of the original, Oorlab, while completely making it your own..


Fab!

Very dreamy and atmospheric. I thought it looked a bit long when I first saw the time data. but the piece keeps introducing subtle variants so generally speaking pulls it all off. I like how the very human vocal fits in with all the fragmented yet beautifully balanced instruments. I am sure this is going to get voted for, well don @oorlab and @CrystalSuzy !
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Thanks @MichaelA  - indeed this is one of the longest tracks I have put out since a long time. Normally I keep the tracks at around 3 minutes. Not totally deliberate but most of the time they turn out that way, and the 2 - 3 minute format fits the pop format I guess. But this song sort of brings its own format and buildup.

This is good indeed, I like the dreamy feel and the different sounds you introduce all over. The spoken part sounds very good, too. @CrystalSuzy 's original is clearly recognisable, but you turned into something new.
There's only one thing I couldn't really make friends with, it's the drum computer. To me it's too repetitive and much to prominent in the mix, it covers up the many beautiful little things that go on. I would introduce it much later and keep it down...
But a very enjoyable listen all in all! ::headphone::

Cheers,
Mark

Hi @Mark Luto  - thanks for the comment. I agree, the drum computer is a bit too much. I made a new version, with less of that ingredient. And following @MichaelA 's remark, it is a shorter version:
