 @Leonard Scaper kindly let me "cover" his wonderful song "Love is gonna find you"

 here's the original https://soundcloud.com/leonardscaper/love-is-gonna-find-you
 and here's my cover

 Had a lot of fun "playing" with this! but could have spent another week on it....
I prefer poisoner to fish chef...

Awesome piece of work.

I love it!

Wow @Dakoda you really delivered on this! I knew you'd make it on time! Really, despite what @MichaelA was saying ( His story was pretty convincing. Plus, you both live in England and all...) I had full confidence that you'd do it and you did .....  ::) oh what was I writing about again?

Oh yeah, this cover is crazy cool! I love the synth work, love the electronic ambience, love the cool arrangement, the chill vocal delivery .... Good show!

Very imaginative @Dakaoda. I always knew you'd come good! Never doubted you! ;D

Some great synth sounds and usual Dakoda intricate interplay in there - and the singing is slightly different in style too - more melodic I feel!

Amazing how you have made the original your own with this very creative piece of work. Enjoyed!  ::thumb::
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!

I had to go back to check if I had remembered the original good enough.
Leonard woke up with a jolt when his speakers started on this one.
No, kidding.
I loved the original, and yes, I had to check if I remembered well.that part is true in any case.
And I looooooooove what you did with it.
I have absolutely no idea how I must figure out how to vote.
Good luck with this very nice entry.
Kind regards, Gus

I think this is great. All those synth sounds are masterfully intertwined. @Dakoda at his best. If I had to criticize something, I would say that (apart from the lyrics) the song doesn't have much to do with the original anymore. But luckily I don't have to criticize anything! ;D

I am really sorry.

Whohoo! @Dakoda this sounds awesome to me! Great rendition of Steve's work. Sounds completely different than the original and is full of personal reinterpretation. I love the way you rearranged the track and I lowoove the way you sing! You didn't luse as much autotune as I'm used to did you? Sounds fantastic! Reminds me a bit of Depeche mode!
Enjoyed listening and wow, what a strong entry we have here!
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

@Dakoda ten out of ten for originality, pretty dam cool mister ::dj::
fly away and find my peace of mind...
