A surprising choice of song for me to cover, the original is a punk rock song by Billy Idol - yet something about its strong melody and Gothic imagery has always appealed to me.

This is my take on it - instrumental.

The original is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAZQaYKZMTI

One of the last songs I would have guessed you would cover, lol smiley
I like the music of Billy Idol and especially his guitarplayer Steve Stevens.
Great how you pulled it of to bring this song without real guitars, very nice arrangements, Iqbal
very much enjoyed

I'm into punk rock...as long as you're doing it! This goes over three minutes, but it still seems short. Must have held my interest. Nice instrumentation. Enjoyed.

Steve Stevens is awesome! Such a gear-head!

This would've been on my "Top Ten Songs I Wouldn't Expect Iqbal from icomps to Cover." smiley

You're right though, man...it is a great melody! SO well-played.

Excellent arrangement & production. Lovely keys especially the synth guitars. Enjoy the added effects as well. I am not familiar with the original, therefore I'll take yours as new.
Great work.

Cheers / Mike

This is F*R*E*S*H! What a great take on it. Having just seen Billy himself (along with Steve Stevens) perform it last week in Auckland, I was super interested to see what you've made of it. It is great - and yes, good strong melodies always shine through. BTW, Billy Idol was bloody awesome (I hadn't really expected too much as he was double billing with Cheap Trick who I went to see because they were my first concert way back in '79). Great job.

This is a really creative and original way to cover this song. I like the choice of instruments you have done. Exotic and oriental in a way I really like. Nice beat it develops into. A hint of distorted guitar to remind us where the song comes from. It is amazing how good the melody actually is when you hear it this way. Cool Iqbal.

Billy Idol would love this!!!! Great orchestral take on a punk-rocker. I dig that classical guitar a lot. All the sweeping pad stuff makes it really soar - great stuff!!

I absolutely love this Iqbal. You have taken this great song and totally re-imagined it. Stunning. A mark of a truly great song imop is one that can be transformed into many genres. Gorgeous strings & orchestration. Love the lute/mandolin? in this. Innovative & visionary cover of a classic. Thanks for sharing with us.

I saw your "Latest song" while commenting on Neumuzik's song.
You don't even wanna know how my eyes bulged!
I couldn't hit "play" soon enough.

It turned out to be a VERY cool rendition. So much happening to hold the interest. extremely well arranged and recorded, I feel.
