I still love that song, and so does everyone I play it for. Remember how I said good songs are "indestructible," you can do them in a zillion different ways and they still work. This is another example.
Of course, now I want to hear the vocals...that arrangement would give you a chance to stretch out on the vocals. It's kind of the reverse of "Only After You," where I slowed it down and that gave me a lot more vocal options.
I'm glad you nicked the idea of using a choir
It really added a haunting quality to my cover version, and does the same thing here.
Questions: Don't you have a full version of Studio One? If so, why are you using Prime? Also, where the synths you're using included in Prime?
