More or less a straightforward remix of tristesse (now with correct chords?). I think it's my fourth or fifth attempt at covering it. Perhaps my favorite sid, despite it's shortness.

REVIEW BY Alucard (01/04/2013)

This one is difficult to jugde...

Technically, this is top notch. In interpretation, use of instrumentation, executing them the right way and mixing them together. Even the clear and transparent production adds up to it.

Personally, for my taste it is too much stuffed with this wahwahish flanging lead synth. A little bit less of it here and there would have added greatly to the atmosphere of the song.

Although the music isnt really my side of town, i admit that to judge this song fairly i have to put back my personal taste and rely on the overall outstanding technichal part instead. And for that alone, you get the top notch.

I hereby confess i listened to a bunch of Mordi RMXes now and if there is a clearer contestant to ROTY i havent found him yet... ;-)

When a song keeps playing over and over on my system, and I don't know I have listened to the same thing for 2 hours and that I continually to get goose bumps at the same place each time is the sign of a song that has been put together really REALLY well! You Originally this song was one of the ones I played on SID a lot - but now I am just going to be playing this even more! Great work!!

6 finnr shouts: Love it. Funky as the original, all the effects added are spot on. One of my fav sids, and now one of my fav RKOs.
6 LaLa shouts: Great rendition. But what this remix makes clear to me is that this tune is in despearate need of a remix with a singing duet...
6 ryrynz shouts: Pro job. I would like to hear it however with a softer and smoother more expressive lead. This rings near the edges of perfection, It could've been one of the best.
