Cheer Up Charlie

I learned this song on acoustic a week ago to try and best my roommate's version of "Somewhere Out There" from American Tale. I also needed to test out some new equipment in my studio. Then this happened. Let me know what you think.

Now this really WOULD cheer Charlie up! This is great! Thanks for posting it.

The original was perfect - for its audience. Everybody in my age group can remember this song. We loved watching our Willy Wonka on the VHS.

Sincere thanks for the comments.

Never heard this before - like it! Mix could be a bit tighter perhaps. Vocal gets a bit lost. But loadsa fun and perfect for late night at a festival when everyone is steamin...!

Vocals get mixed low where I come from. So yeah, you're right MD. I'd totally love to play this late after a set of balls out metal just to get everyone stupid. It'll happen, for sure; as long as I keep my dreams in view.

Oh man, there was a song in there! I don't like the original, I gotta admit, but I like your version a lot.

"Vocals get mixed low where I come from."

And I like it. I remember that band from NY that got unbelievably famous a few years ago. (the strokes, I believe). I didn't like the band, but I liked it that they were the first mainstream band I heard with the vocals buried under the rest. Anyways, back to your song: great version. Congrats.
