    ***UPDATE***Since many of you asked and my work has been downloading pretty quickly lately, here's an ALTERNATE DOWNLOAD LINK for a FREE copy ;o) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxGB4yyMl-k (download link will be in the YouTube video description)

    When I heard of this contest (http://www.indabamusic.com/opportunities/lalah-hathaway-my-everything-remix-contest/submissions/85723) and heard the song, it occurred to me that to really make this a challenge for me was not to keep it uptempo, but to flip the script and remix a dance track into a ballad...so there you have it ;) Funny enough, doing it that way, I actually listened to the lyrics and really heard the fullness of their meaning this way. I can hear this played at someone's wedding reception, perhaps lol

    As for what I did? I simply used her vocals only, then decided to make it sound acoustic, so I didn't even quantitize or record to the 123 bpm metronome, but instead played it free-form. What you hear was all played on the keys, using Logic Pro 9 software instruments, and no loops/samples. Just Piano, strings, bass, and drums...and the incomparable Lalah Hathaway.
    Not really concerned about the voting and what not, just did this for the fun of it and maybe get some free exposure, and perhaps even work with Lalah in the future? Who knows ;) I'm also posting on here for free download if you want a copy.

    peace,
    Ahmed

      Wow! I have to admit too...I didn't really listen to the original song until I listened to your version. I like this ALOT better as a ballad. Good job!!

      Fabulous AS, it really compliments Lalah's vocals, topped the original mix by far in my book. I never even gave this tune a second play until now.

      @PhilipClark: Thank you, Phillip, as well as for your continued support in the past :) Yeah, I like to explain the process cause we can only grow from learning and be inspired through that. This one was fun to do, and Lalah's voice really inspires when working on a track, I'm learning :)

      Way to flip. And thank you for explaining the process. That's huge for us fellow producers out here.

      @DJ Chiron: I appreciate your comment, and I have to admit you're right...I didn't even really listen to the lyrics until I slowed it down lol Thank you for the support :)

      I'm definitely like this version more than the original, stripped down to this slower format you can better appreciate her vocals! Good luck with the contest, you've won my vote.
