A little side note: we were scheduled to play on BBC Radio in Northampton on a show
of bands covering the Christmas standards. We were strangely omitted. Somehow, Coldplay decided to cover The Pretenders' '2000 Miles' and copped the spot smiley . Oh well, I'm blessed to have this great track to sing on.
Thanks Zallaz.

...and now it feels like Christmas has arrived. It's just never the same without a jk&z track. You two combined are the Cliff Richard of iCompositions.

And here was me expecting a longer version of the Proclaimers 500 miles... smiley

Nice track guys, in my opinion a tough track to cover as the original is soooo good! But you have it justice, nice work!

As The Pretenders are one of my all time fav. bands you might think I'm being harsh here, but I'm not, I'm going to give you my honest opinion, I hope it helps, this is all totally constructive.

The guitar riff at the start is wrong by one note, it's missing.
Secondly the riff has no feel, it's to staccato too.
The harmonies are good but not great.
I'm listening and keeping in mind it's your bands take on the song doing it your way, which is fine, I've done the same as I've covered, but some songs need to keep the hooks just right, if you loose that then the listener looses something of the original I think.

Sorry to hear you got thrown over for Cold Play but then, you'd expect it wouldn't you?, Cold Play would pull more viewers, it's just business to a TV station, nothing personal.

Which is how I've tried to write this, nothing personal just my 30+ years of experience with 20 of those on a pro level.

Good band though my friend, and better than so so many I've seen and heard through the years.

I hope you have success.

All the best

Mick

Guess I missed X-mas this year. My missus had a bad tooth this year and was totally laid out with this evil toothache during X-mas. We sort of had to give all festive things a miss, which was a bit of a bummer. Anyway. It's good to hear traditions getting established on iComp. It's pretty darn good, I say. Nice stuff.
