    Loads of great entries.

    5 points @Bezzer : Fast paced and crazy drums, great vocals, shreddy guitar. Nice dynamic changes. What's not to like.

    3 points @StephenB : Lovely clear epic production. Great vocals again. My favourite for the production style.

    1 point @IMC1980 : Another excellent rocker. And great vocals again.

    It's not a competition.

    Thanks for the vote. The drums are just a loop from Native Instruments Damage based on a preset called LPS Epic Organic Full.

    Honestly any entry would be worthy of the top 3 for me but I'll go


    5 points @StephenB - this is possibly my favourite ever since we started doing the covers challenge. Outstanding production and so 80s  I can't believe it's not the original

    3 points @Bezzer - stunning musicianship, loved the chord play for the chorus and your friend did a brilliant job with the vocals. We'll done

    1 point @stratman3142 - I must be in an 80s mood. I really loved this

    Sorry to everyone else

    Really struggled to work out a top three, and then to work out an order, but before I change my mind again ...

    @IMC1980 ; - thought I was going to hate it, but by the end of it decided it was genius; great inappropriate G'n'R style take on a song that shouldn't work but somehow does, fantastically

    2 @StephenB - must be an age thing; would probably have denied liking it in the actual 80s, but nostalgia is a monkey on the back, and this is just spot on

    3 Cousin SlippyFist (@poopot) - just so very wrong :) In all seriousness, with a straight countryesque vocal rather than the comedy one this could easily have come top for me as a quirky take. As it is, it makes me smile every time I hear it. You're a bad man.

    Loads of entries this time around! Really hard to pick the number one slot, but as of today, after a fresh listen:

    5 points @Bezzer - Was very close with @StephenB for the top spot, your guitar performances on this were phenomenal. The track overall sounded like it should have been in a 90s Japanese arcade game, loved it!

    3 points @StephenB - As above, there really was not much in it between you and Bezzer; great production and so 80s, it should have been wearing a linen suit. 

    1 point @poopot (Cousin Slippyfist) - Cousin SF must have been thinking of Bubba as he laid down those vocals *shudder*

    Well done to everyone!

    What a bloody great challenge.  Wasn't a duff track anywhere to be seen which makes the voting very difficult indeed.  My votes are mainly effected I'm afraid by my current, resurgent rock obsession

    It's also bloody annoying as there was one that really got me this month which, tactically, I should ignore.  But that would be a dick move and there's no gain! =)

    5 points @StephenB ... its just brilliant, really reminiscent of the sound. Just nailed it.

    3 points @IMC1980 ... man, I could listen to you forever, this was on loop for a while.  Just hits me right in the feels as it takes me back to uni.  That's not to diminish the fact that it's really well arranged, superbly performed and a top mix.

    1 point @flying_pie ... really close with @poopot (who should at least get some bonus points for doing 2 tracks, the show off) but I think this just fitted my mood better today while listening.

    Brilliant all round though, such top work this month.

    And thank you all for the nice comments, I was really pleased with how mine turned out this time round. I've never practised do hard or done some many takes for 5 seconds of audio, so very very pleased it was worth it!
