THank you, not bad not bad at all... I really enjoyed it as I am newwave and italo disco fan myself too. :)
Do you really have this singing voice? :D Cool.
There were some sloppy timing, and also playing differences in solo compared to original but it is just a question of time to get all these details right as it takes just 3..4 times more time. Still good.

keep up with releases. :) Now listening your "neon lights".

That was amazing. I listened to the original version (I'd never heard the song before) but must admit I have a slight preference for yours.

Thanks :-) I'm amazed, didn't expect anybody to prefer my version over original - but glad that you liked it.

You've inspired me to record my own version (audio/video below), which I finished yesterday. I can't bl**dy sing though, hence the instrumental version...

Basses: Arturia MiniMoog Original VSTi (custom patches)
Vox-type lead: Korg Mono/Poly VSTi (edited version of A30 Spooky Soprano)
Everything else: Roland Fantom X7 (custom patches)

Drum samples:
- Kick,snare & hats: Linn LM-1
- Electronic toms: Roland R8
- Cymbal: Fantom Standard Kit
- Clap: Roland TR707

Pretty nice :-) The only thing I'd change is in the solo part. The 16th note quantization doesn't work for it, it gets awkward in some moments because of that. But overall nice sound.

Yeah, I actually forgot to turn it off but couldn't be bothered to re-do it!
