Real Life's "Send Me an Angel" from my good old 80's decade. Needless to say, I've always wanted to cover this piece and finally got around to it. For synth bass duties I used my Sequential PRO 3 and for everything else synth I used my beloved Oberheim OB-8 which did a fantastic job recreating those 80's synth patches. For drums and guitars I used NI's Kontakt and Battery.
A big thank you to Tim Murphy for providing the lead vocals. Until this cover, Tim has not sang for over 20 years, but with a little coaching from my wife gave us a great performance IMO. Also thank you to my wife, Ann Marie, for providing the "Angel" vocals. I provided additional bass vocals underneath the chorus and 2nd verse.....which luckily for you the listeners isn't too loud. LOL I hope that you all enjoy my effort recreating this awesome 80's track. 🙂

It is the newest track on my channel: ... J5eCnhNbfA

Good job on this! It seems to be a fairly accurate recreation as far as I can remember.
