Description : very groovy cover version of an old pop song of "The Carpenters" of the late 60´s......full arrangement with some special Frank Zappa inspired solo parts....style is between funk,pop,jazz and latin ,but i prefer the funk genre for this version....no use of the original track or any loops and no remix ,but a special interpretation of this evergreen by Psychotropic Circle 2008

    Hey Robert.....I'm reviewing this track again as I was listening to it on my player,while walking through some wetlands birdwatching the other day.....what's great about this arrangement and the playing on it is that it pays respect to the original melodies without being dismissive of them or replacing the fundamentals of the song...I was thinking of the Carpenters and wondering how they would react....I think they would love it!......It is a very uplifting piece..very happy and fresh without the slightest hint of worry......There's one other cover song that I love that reminds me of a similar but totally different approach musically..Miles Davis's version of 'Time After Time' by Cindy Lauper........cheers dave

    thanks again Dave,
    this track was one of my favorites when i was a teenager,first love affair etc..............than i had a look on you tube watching this old clip done in the 60s with that singing woman playing the drums.........i love it....."why do birds suddenly appear...every time you are near......." so i totally can imagine that you´v listened to the track while walking through some wetlands birdwatching and having lots of memories of past events maybe ....i take this for serious and never could destroy these feelings i had although it was along time ago........basics of our youth ........
    but now "You´re Under Arrest"......since 1986 waiting for rescue....i also love this Miles track

    regards,robert
