A friend got me all inspired about the 80s over the xmas break. This one has to be one of my all time favs. I had great fun doing this. Turn it up and enjoy! Steve

WOW Steve!! I was anticipating this and am very proud of ya, man!
The backing is great - very true to Numan - as well as your vocals - perfect mix & the vocal effects are perfect too - you pushed all the right buttons & flipped all the right switches - but the best part is you gave this your human touch - cool spoken part - GREAT work!!! smiley - Rob B-)

Love the original and your cover too. Very faithful, but also a little up-to-date in the production. Still one could imagine this version being done in the late 70s or early 80s too, it's so close to mimicing the sounds of the times. Great job, much enjoyed listening (you might enjoy my cover of Dancing with Myself, even though that is a more guitar oriented song).

P.S. I notice you already stopped by and commented on my track . . . oops . . . thank you!

Dr Quack - thanks. i was hoping the vocals wouldn't let it down as that is the essence of Numan.

Gepo - yep, stick in the 80s, there's some great stuff

Voxman - thanks, I'll have to check out his new stuff now.

Kenn - great to have you back. Thanks for the comments.

On reflection and listening back to this original, that opening synth sax is pretty blah ... but hey, this was the MAN and he forged such a great sound. We all follow...

My brother introduced me to Gary Numan way back when, and always love his fusion of synth rock. Your version is totally faithful-I just love this. Must of been so fun recreate this piece. Good work!
