I absolutely love this remake of the original. I actually heard this one first before I heard the original. To be honest, I like this one better, though, that means little because the original is just played in a style I don't like, which forfeits my opinion. So instead, I'm reviewing the mechanics of this song.
I love the voice. At some parts, I hear great emotion in the lyrics. Very nicely done. The background pad fits the theme beautifully, since it reminds me a bit of Mario Kart. I love the drums as well; it is the perfect compliment with the vocals.
You guys are pro. Go all the way. Very good.
