Boney M – Daddy cool (8 bit remake)

Once in a while I hear a record and want to do a cover version.

This helps me to understand the inner workings of the song in question, what are the key parts, what extras little bits there are, and so on

I usually go for 8 bit style covers, as that simplifies the process and brings out the key melodies and ideas – the Cure for example sound superb in 8 bit style.

Heard Boney M‘s Daddy Cool whilst out and about the other day and it really stuck, so here’s the remake
