Love Is Alive

Just messin around with an old Gary Wright song. I always liked this song, and thought it would sound cool if it was a little heavier. Just so ya know, the guitars don't sound very good, the mix isn't the greatest, etc., etc. I didn't spend much time on it. This was just for fun. Hope ya like it anyway.

    Loved this.  Your voice is great.  And you changed it up just enough to make it your own.

    Well you didn't build up the song much in your description, but it sounds pretty darn good to me.
    You have a great rock n' roll voice.

    Thank you eph! I appreciate the compliment(even though I'm self conscious of my voice). Glad you liked it. Thanks for listening!

    Thanks Bjorn! Yeah you're right. I didn't build it up because I know there are some things I would change if it was something I was actually planning on releasing. It was just for fun. I may still retrack some things and make a serious effort at some point. I think it could be pretty cool... Thank you so much for the compliments man! I really appreciate it!

    You were indeed rather modest in description.  This is doggone good (if I may be modest in my compliment).  You do have a good voice for rock of this style.  Nice one!

    Thank you for listening Freddy! I just didn't want anyone to think that I thought it was finished or anything. Plus, I tend to talk down about myself anyway. :) I'm glad you liked it, and I appreciate the kind words!

    You nailed it -- the crunchy guitars fit the song extremely well and add a great departure from the original.  The vocal is right on.  This song would get people to stand up and rock out played live.
     
    I hear what you mean about some of the mix -- some of the echoing backing tracks are a little low, for example.  The cover is so good, you might want to take the extra time and polish the mix.  I'd be willing to give it a shot if you want to send me the stems.  My email is budwestmont at gmail, if you want to pursue it.
     
    In any case, thanks for sharing!

    Hey cwestmont! Thanks for checking it out man! I appreciate the kind words, and the offer of help on the mix! I really didn't spend much time at all on this. I just threw it together. I might revisit it one day. This was just for fun. Thanks again!

    Kind of an 80's/synthy version of a good tune. Great shouting vocal.
    I had forgotten how good Gary Wright was.
    Good stuff.

    Well done Mr. Foot. Glad you didn't try to make it sound like the original. That would have been pointless.

    Thank you Wayfarer! I agree with you. I probably should have mixed it up a little more, but I didn't want to get too far away from the original vibe. Thanks for listening man. I appreciate it!

    Good job - I always liked this song - you sang it well.  You made it a bit of a harder rock version with the distorted electric guitar.  The mix sounds quite nice to my ears.
