also chose this song as one of many to re-style
on his inexplicable
album, In A Metal Mood
: No More Mr. Nice Guy
The arrangement is fairly sedate and almost swings at times; the legato horn slides during the intro are a very nice touch. It has a very lounge act feel, especially the bassline. The descending chords are mostly ignored in the verse and the prechorus is rearranged.
But there is something i can never forgive him for:
Crazy crazy train, whoo whoo!
I am not making this up
. A gospel chorus
sings this over the intro.
When i hear this, i'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.
