Way way back when I started to track on my PC, my pal Curtis from grade school handed me a tape of Real Life's Send Me an Angel single and asked me if I could do a cover. Sure, I thought, I had done a few other tunes and I could handle that. But alas, I was 13 and easily frustrated, so I soon tabled it for later.

I recently got the song stuck in my head again after hearing a cover somewhere, probably on Youtube, so I poked around on Wikipedia and made a quick visit to the Real Life website. I saw they were still releasing music and there was a recent (within the last few months, anyway) blog post and scrolled down to find a "hey, email us" post. To my delight, I found out that Mr. David Sterry does indeed check the box.

So, this tune combines two trends I've been a part of...one of them being that I do covers for friends' requests and the other being that I have been able to contact artists while working on their covers. And now I'm able to fulfill that gradeschool promise and you can vicariously relive those moments of what went through my head as a kid listening to this on the air.

Beyond Curtis and David, this tune is secondarily dedicated to people that dig arps.
