i was very skeptical when i saw the song, but i am glad i stopped by and listened. your vocals are very good, no they are excellent and are nicely placed in the mix. I am not a big fan of synth pop, but your song held my interest and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the whole song. i can tell you put a lot of work into this, great job!

Great sounding track: I do remember Styx but not this song. Awesome synths and vox.

What a cool rendition; the vocals are top notch (I'm jealous). I thought I'd be missing the big drum/guitar break in the middle when it changes but not so much. You definitely gave it your own style.

(I can't help but think of the version done by Cartman on South Park when I hear this song. Classic.)

I agree with the rest: excellent vocal work with super placement in the mix! And, yeah, this is a great pop synth version. Kudos on the arrangement! I say you fire this off to DeYoung -- he'd get a kick of it, I bet. How do we find his email address? smiley

I love your version of this - I love the original but the best covers (imo) are where an artist gives a great song a new sound & it's still a great song - as you have done very well - I love your instrumentation, the beat, your vocals & the carefree spirit you captured - a w e s o m e !!! - BV / Rob B-)

well i am SO sick of the original, what, 30 years later STILL!!! but suddenly i can listen again, this is GREAT, and your vocals are just TERRIFIC!!! this builds so nicely, i love the way it "clears out" when the angels gather!!! also the way you are true to the original arrangement somehow while remaking it totally new. after all, in spite of it all this was and is a great song.

Loved it, I agree a new freshness and take on an old classic. I always enjoy your music though. Sorry have not been about much lately, but have to work quite long hours these days and leaves little time for the music. smiley D

80sB, on a negative note, this isn't quite my style of music, but i think I appreciate music enough to recognize what's good or not-even if it's not particularly a personal favorite genre.
The posistive: An enexpected rendition, but somehow it worked well. Mainly because you did it flawlessly, the mix was well done, and your voice is fantastic.
