Excellent Cover StashipFive. Love your choice of sounds.
Beautifully fat bass tone. Nice arrangement.
I’ve always liked that song, but I’m just now realizing how kind of weak the lyrics are.
This version is cool.
This reminds me of the terrible covers played by the bands touring in small Spanish villages during the summer. Only fun after several iterations of Gin and Tonic.
My dad always used to say, if you can’t sing, use a vocoder or rap.
