A cover of the song from the Flashdance soundtrack for the #1 song challenge.

Longtime listener, first time songer. I thought doing a slower more low key version would be a good idea, but that was before I realized how thoroughly goofy the lyrics are. Oh well, I'm posting it anyway.

The vocals and concertina were recorded live and the rest are samples or synth. Also I probably need a better mic for recording vocals and I totally don't know what I'm doing in general.

Heh. I like the way it highlights the goofiness of the lyrics. They deserve a good outing.

and I totally don't know what I'm doing in general.

That's pretty much how it works. Just keep doing it anyway.

This is awesome. Better mic, nothin'.

Ah ha ha. I wouldn't have recognized it until the chorus if I didn't know.

I dig the minimal percussion especially. Nice insistently miserable concertina.

This is like Tall Dwarfs meet The Fying Lizards or something.
