Stayin Virtually Alive
*

This song is not in a battle


This is my tribute to one of the greatest tunes ever, Staying Alive, by the incredible Bee Gees..

  Noone can honestly say they don't sing along with this tune when they hear it on the overhead in the doctors office, or the shopping mall, or on the radio when they're about town. I mean, Cmon, it's the Bee Gees for cryin out loud...  Anyway, this is me, all techno... THanks to Marino showing me how to use my midi stuff in FL, I now can pull my old Midi tunes off my floppy disk, and make some use outta them. This was originally arranged as a cover of the original tune, on an Amiga 500, But, I added to it a bit now that I have FL.. I imported the original Midi I arranged back then, and then added to it, ALLOT!  hahaha

  PS, it's not totally complete...  But I had to get some feedback, I am working on a nice intro, and outro.. The rest will stay the same...

i really like your guitar part!  I love the "choking" that it does all the way through, muting and all staccato-like.  Absolutely fantastic.  This is out of your style if your style sounds like "crap" as you proclaimed a while back   The Bee Gees were in fact before my time, so I didn't get to grow up with them, really, but they've left a legacy that no human being can really pass up by accident!  Lovely, lovely....

good thing you got that midi deal working, and FL studio!  I'm sure it'll let you do more cool stuff as you experiement with it!

haha, all this needs now is some sort of vocal cover.... but who would want to step up and try to do a comparable job to the Bee Gees? 

(i don't!  i'd be put to shame)

For a midi is a nice arrangement though the sound of the guitar is not of my taste. Nice arrangement.

thanks everyone
I am glad to see such wonderful feedback...  One question, should we try to implement a seperate section for covers and remixes? to keep them out of the main bandamp audio review section... So we could have something like this:
Bandamp.com/Audioreview.html
Genres:
Blues
Rock
Acoustic
pop
techno
punk
etc
etc
Collaboration/projects

Covers/remixes



  What do you think?

I don't like the idea of forcing music into specific genres.  Yes, I'd like to flag certain posts as collaborations or covers and be able to filter them, but a system of rigid taxonomy has too many drawbacks in music.

BTW, solid track!

Hahaha that kicks ass. I didn't know what the hell was going on. I was like a minute twenty in and goin' "I've heard this before!" Really good job taking the beat and notes of the vocal peice and then ripping that guitar. Sick, really. I think it would have been a little more interesting if you had some type of ballad singing going, something really slow like a requiem to off beat the poppy-funk.

You really out did yourself man, this is great. On the guitar, did you just use max tremello and some crazy distortion? Anyways its a real cool sound that you're pumpin out there man. I guess I picked the wrong song to see what you mean by our styles are similar Oh wells, until next time batman!
