Automatic Lover (SINGLE)

:: INTRODUCTION

A pop-track from the 1980s given a rather lengthy remix by Michael Cretu and Frank Peterson with soft female vocals, an incessant synth-bassline, picked acoustic bass, piano chords and rock drums. An un-credited male voice interjects occasionally with "I am your automatic lover", tying in with lyrics about a future devoid of love and passion besides that from machines. The Club Mix thankfully raises the volume of the lead vocal (which tends to be awfully quiet and distant in the Long Version), but the two arrangements don't stray very far away from the same musical territory.
