The official OMD web site has a new version of "Shes Leaving" for you to listen to http://www.omd.uk.com/html/downloads.html

What do you think?

My thoughts are that Andys vocals, are very good.. but the echo from Marsheaux reminds me of something from way back then.. Mark out of 10 - for me 4

Does sound a little hollow (but then, so did the original somewhat), but a good mix and nice to hear something new.

I have always been a big fan of the original, and is my favourite song by OMD. So hearing this was very strange. It was more like the soul had been taken out of the original and replaced with an inferior hollow model.

Just my opinion of course, I know there are many who love this version.



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

I quite like Andys new vocal, but could do without the Cheeky Girls vocals  

The original is up there with the best stuff they ever did.

Glad it is not just me, with a view on this the original track, is up high on my favorite ever songs/ And I do like many mash up's but this one, just does not rock my boat, apart from Andy's vocals, which are brill

Have to say that http://www.motionandheart.co.uk/fanmedia/index.php?params=media/47/ Still turns hairs up on the back of my arms

It is OK, and it does grow on you a little. I think a little more energy in the music would have made it twice as good.

But as I said earlier, its good to get a sneak peak at Andys vocal skills.
