Here's a cover of Joe Jackson's 'Is She Really Going Out With Him'

Recommended Posts

Not bad, I always loved that line "Pretty women out walking with Gorillas" one of my favourites from him.

I always liked this song - you guys did a good job on the cover.  Not sure about the fx on the lead vocal - it sounds like a rotary speaker.

Sometimes you don't know how much you like a song until you haven't heard it in a while, and this is one of them.  I like the texture of your voice in this, and it makes this version uniquely yours.  All that stands out is that it is hot and bright, almost brittle.  Otherwise, this is very cool.  Nice choice of songs.

Agree with Lynn, too much treble over all for me. Great tune, good version. Good vocal performance.

Heheh - yup me too.  I was reading up on the song while doing it and he actually ran into problems because certain people thought that it was a racist line.  Lots of snowflakes in the world today I guess!  Thanks for the kind words!

One of my fav's back during the "New Wave" days.  Excellent cover!!!

Thanks Freddy - it was a great time to listen to music.  I really loved his Sunday Papers and a bunch of others from that album.  We were breaking into the music industry at the same time.

Thanks Douglas.  The vocal was tricky here.  You can probably tell I had to do a lot of processing to get it to sound close.

Thanks for the feedback.  Maybe I'll take another try at it.  It was hard to get the vocals right on this one.
