Thank you both! I like interpreting other peoples music, and being a Swede I have a bunch of ABBA covers. But poor sound/recording quality stops me from putting them here. "Merzedes Benz" just barely passed the quality audition.
Take care!

Very clean, very nice, Mr Bajen!
clench your teeth, and put your ABBA covers here to share with us. We don't bite for poor sound/recording.

You're right CloneOfMyself. I don't really know what "clench your teeth" means but I can guess. I'll start putting some ABBA tunes up soon. Thanks by the way!

Except for the cough towards the end, very good. Listened. I love your style and voice (See comments on Chiquitita) and this would do well with a remix where I'd pare back the volume of the gutiar a little bit and perhaps add a solo violin in a spot or two...Great job and loved your rendition of a Joplin classic.

I like your original approach to this song. Janis Joplin did a good original version & you've done a good cover.

Hey you've had 365 plays... one for every day of the year... every one of them deserved too, I think. Great cover. Production is a bit rusty and dusty and musty - perfect for the song.

Great! Simply brilliant concept performance. Could hear this being a release from a popular artist. Ben Harper...is in my mind. Loved it. Thanks

This is why iComp is so amazing. This song is up over 6 months and everyone loves it. Especially me!!! I can't bellieve it hasn't been more popular!!!!

Fantastic cover. Interssting to me is that your acoustic playing reminds me a lot "Can't Find My Way Home" by Blind Faith and it works perfectly with this song!!!!

Very original!!!

Funny, you're the first to mention the relationship between my guitar and Blind Faith. Of course there is no such thing as a coincident. I love mixing music in various ways. An even more obvious mixture can be found at http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=21086.

Thanks for comments!

This was one of the first songs I heard on iComp back in Dec 05 when I signed on. I thought it was fantastic then and still think that. And I'm finally saying so. lol Great vocal work and the guitar DOES sound like Clapton's, not a bad thing at all, just what the song needed. Great work!

Interesting!! the intro guitar and rhythm section is much like "Can't find my way home". Yet it is Mercedes Benz. Good blend, purposedly or not.

Except for the fact that I prefer a SAAB turbo before a Mercedes Benz...
this cover is really rollin' down the road, smoothly and with great style!
Thx for the ride! I enjoyed it in the backseat...
I once made a carsong too: Alfa Romeo Heartbeat:
