I wrote/recorded this song when I had moved to a new city and was shopping around for a new band/songwriting collaborator. For a lot of reasons, that didn't happen and am thinking about resurrecting it and putting vocals to it, but I have a niggling sense that it sounds too much like some tune from the 80s I can vaguely remember. Any ideas? Guitars, bass by me, drumming by my faithful drum machine, whom I call "Steve".

Didn't strike me as anything I've heard before . . . really like it!

This song is definately chock full of '80s elements but still sounds totally original. It's too good to not finish with lyrics and stuff. The guitar and bass are damn good BTW. I got a kick out of that little bass run you do. Classic!

This reminds me of The Fall a little bit, but only up to the break...

Survivor doing a U2 song? In a good way, I mean. I like it.

Yikes, I'd probably not admit this face-to-face, but I was probably influenced by both of those bands as a kid. When I hear "She Sells Sanctuary" by the Cult, I sort of feel like I stole part of the riff from that song to construct this one, but it was completely unintentional, and it's probably only obvious to me.
