Default "Got A Hold On Me" Cover

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4heolxyg9r...ew%5D.mp3?dl=0

Just sharing something I did on a whim. I'm not interested in critiques.

Who is that? You?

Just being honest, but the recording is a little rough. It could use some compression. And the vocals sound strained. "B"s are hard for 95% of male singers to hit, and although they're there, they sound strained/pinched.

Id love to hear it if you can post it on YouTube or elsewhere so that I can stream instead of download an actual file.

You actually don't need to download a file. It will stream if you go to the link -- the web-based player will show and you can just click 'play'.

Sounded like Christine was in the backing vocals.

If someone you never met walked into a room would you start out by saying "that outfit looks poorly made and that color doesn't look good on you. I don't like your hairstyle and those grey hairs don't do you any favors. You look tired." If not, rethink how you approach people you don't know online.

Yeah, the Christine board, where people are usually kinder.

I like hearing this sung by a man. Gives it a different flavour, and it does sound like she's somewhere in the background mix.

You can't come to a FM board, presenting a cover of a FM song, and not expect any critique of your presentation. Fact.

Not bad for a song that is not among her best. I wouldn't rank it in her top 30.
