This is great. It's a remix as much as it is a cover. I like it a lot!

This one slides through my mind as any Englishman would do walking on the ice with hot feets. As far for the pace in this song it could have been done more exact, allthough it's very enjoyable on a 6581:) Good squint of pepper here and there to make the meal good!

It's got some kind of JCH vibe going on. I love those slides.

Reminds me of some tune by Metal or Link, don't quite remember..

hmm.. Jeff, after our little talk on #c-64 lately I tried listening to this one in 6581, then in 8580 (see I do listen to you.. hehe).

I hear what you mean in 6581, but then in 8580 the slide 'abuse' actually sounds quite good/fitting to my taste.

alround nice tune.

It's really funky, and I love it, but I do agree with Jeff. The slide abuse is especially evident in the chorus.

Yeah seems like overuse of slides and slides just put there for the sake of it... Slides should be used for creating some expression, which doesn't seem to work in this case.

Nice eventhough there are some things in the slides that I don't like...

Sounds like Busta Rhymes got his hands on a sid.

It seems somewhat unfinished to me, I miss the bridge after the first verses, the variations in the lead and the saxophone parts, but otherwise it's a really nice and very individual cover.

I was really hoping this was a cover of Godley & Creme's "Englishman in New York"!

Smashing cover of the legendary Sting song. Thumbs up!

Uploaded a .prg version. Feel free to replace it with a version created using a newer version of PSID64 :)

Stan: The compo is anonymous (until February '08, I guess). [I'm assuming you're not asking for the composer of the original, but the creator of this cover version]

Wreg, please don't remove this.
If needed, this one will be PSID64-o-fied...
