Using synths is cheating! Can't you guys play real instruments?

you're a dumb a*s and missing the point, it's a remix not cover..... f**k auto tune as well.
OMFG, I know it's a f**k remix it's in the god-damned title. I was being f**k sarcastic or was the " :P " not a big enough indicator...
Well, perhaps that's because it isn't sarcasm. Sarcasm would have been more like "I like how every track had singing on it".

Anyway, I don't know many people that can sing like Barry Gibb.... :D

I think everyone did a fine job on these and it's hard to pick a favourite. =D>

Yup.

And you expect stunning vocal performances from every track? This is VSE, not the X Factor. ;)

In America it's considered sarcasm. I do happen to know the secret to singing like Barry Gibb... you whack yourself with a crowbar before singing. Yes, it hurts but makes you SUPER GROOVY!!!

And my favourite is the post above me. =D>

Box, it isn't sarcasm in any country.

Anyway, somewhere up there I do believe we were talking about Staying Alive remixes...

Well in my world it is... actually it's me being a smart-a*s. :P But yes back on topic... So how long are the polls going to stay open? I noticed that OJ has the lead by 1 vote.

Leave the rest of us out of it and go down by yourself. You must be one of those "US American's" that Miss Teen South Carolina was talking about...we need to get this guy a map and a dictionary.

I aint voted yet, couldn't download Villi's tune due to the site performing maintenance, gonna check again later,
but as far as it goes, great job everyone.

[ MODERATOR'S COMMENT : the link to Villi's tune is now fixed ]

I have to say that jack's tune got a highlight here. Anyway, I got to loop them all again and then... decide (the though part of the job), I hate to be a critic... Its unfair...!

My vote tied villi with jack, villis tune is plenty of synthesizer-classic sounding, and despite being made in a rush it sounds great, and jack's got a "cool cat" here. result: tie.

Had a hard time deciding, but listned to all, I went with Villi's version. CS_TBLs was runner up. The rest was prob too remixed or difrent, I liked how Villi was still somewhat recognizable and maybe generic sounding too, but still great songs to all.

I'll hit the next clubbys remixes contest, I know you try hard on these bitches clubby, and we had a little dispute there which is only part of the reason I didn't partispate in this one as a sort of boycot, but I've had a lot of other things going on lately too, to make you feel bad for what you did to me. I'll get on the next one tho because I don't hold grudges for too long, besides your sexy bitchmonger that I'll only be able to resist for so long.
