Liner Notes: 

Done for @metalfoot 's Fake It challenge.

I kind of fell into this interesting take on the challenge when I wasn't super comfortable with the subject material - adding the vocoder changed a lot of things.


See for I did not stray far from the formula with lyrics.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

great. The music is compelling - had to listen it through and 5 1/2 mins is a long time for me. On my saved list one of my favourites so far!

I love the Smiths/Cure/Depeche Mode style interpretation on this. BTW mine first was 5 minutes so this one is not unusual. Well done faking it!

Sorry the lyrics weren't your cup of tea-- but glad you were able to make something awesome out of it anyway!

I've just started series 3 of Stranger Things. This fits that era and mood perfectly.
Well done.

Very nice elegiac 80s version of the words; romantic (in the 'new wave' sense) and just relentless in its beat and those swell arps. This is absolutely convincing as a tale of lost friendship between Elliott and E.T. from Spielberg's 80's E.T. movie. I mean, it fits that just perfectly! Very nice interpretation!

I am delighted!! I did the challenge too and I love hearing how each person interprets it. The synth! Loved it.

This one turned out great. The synth sequence in the verse gives the song immediately an urgency that heightens the lonely and lost feeling. Chorus is really quite gorgeous. @metalfoot's lyrics are really dark and desolate, maybe not for everybody but your music and '80s synth-pop sound actually fits them to a tee. And for Alex's credit, the way he shuffles minor and major chords is very close to brilliant.
