I did the guitars and vocals and piano myself

I did the bass and drums in fruity loops, also the strings were done in fruity loops.

Lemme know what you think.

This is really good except the bass, it's so machinelike. Try if letting some of the bass notes play longer helps: dum-du-du-duum instead of dum-dum-dum-dum. I think it might help. And don't forget to add some variation if you redo the bass, repeating the same patterns in Fruity Loops certainly make it sound like the machine it is.
Hope I don't sound too critical, that's not my meaning. As an old bass player I'm just trying to give some tips.

And hey, your singing is great.

yeah I didn't have a bass handy so I did it in fruity loops but I will most likely redo the bass wit a real one when I get a chance.

I was afraid the singing may not be very good. I don't consider myself a good singer lol.

Man, if there's a tune that brings back those good 'ol memories of my youthful days at the burger joint with the juke box in the background, is this one.:scif890: Wait a minute, I'm just 29! Okay, so I wasn't born yet, but this rendition has the perfect ingredient to make an impact as the original: soul. I love this man!:lol:

great job. I liked the bass notes cutting off, it is sounds like an upright bass and there is little sustain with them.

lol well good to see people enjoyed it :)

btw, I am only 21 and even though I wasn't around for this type of music, I find that it has a lot of interesting characteristics like the walking type basslines, and romantic chord progressions. I really enjoy 50's music.

I try and take something from every decade, but the 2000's aren't looking promising yet..

Anyhow, I'll try and get some more covers done soon.

I am still trying to get a good grasp on my singing, I consider it my weakness.
