Dreamlife / 2006 / I Will Survive

It really gets to be a drag when, all you really need is love...

'I will survive' by Dreamlife reminds me of the 80's New Romantic synth pop sound yet with a twist of punky type attitude mixed into the composition. Also, now I think of it- 'Here come cowboys' by the Furs.

Great song, Indie is back

A very good song, "I will Survive" sounds like a top level song, this song could be in the UK charts, sharp like an 80ies song, catchy like a post modern song, sensual voice, sharp guitars, strong/bright bass, groovy drums, cool ... Rock is back on the dance floor... Hey d.j.s!!! Can you play this song next time?

Retro & Anthemic

This song definitely has an anthemic 1980's vibe going on.I like the vocals.The "I will survive you" hook is memorable. Nice mashing of alternative with dance music.The production is top knotch too,Overall a song I would listen to again.

Good song could be a great song.

I do like this song. Well played and nice recording. I like the vocal althoug there is not much of a melody. It all sounds a bit sinister but thats quite intetesting. Maybe a bit much guitar and it sems lazy with regard to fitting the song some how, could be more inventive and add to the atmosphere rather than that rock style. Lyrics are good and i love the second verse i think the first verse could do with a rethink. Overall great song, nice feel to it great hook in the chorus. Fix the guitar and first verse and i think you have it nailed.

I would buy this song except for this vocal.

OK...I get the intention of the vocal, however, the vocal is not up to par. The quality of the voice is right on, but to record a vocal you need to have more than a 3 note range and certainly, not to be so pitchy. The production is well done, I would buy this song if the vocal was on key. Please record this song again I'd really be behind it, if it didn't make me cringe. Best of luck.

good sound

it's a nice rock pop sound with luscious keyboards and garage aftertaste. Quite pleasing and authentic, to my ears the voice is lacking some energy and maybe skills but it's coherent and well balanced. The bass sound is among my favorite, there is some originality but it's not opening a gap in music genre either. the recording is very pro ! well done!

Outstanding Alternative Rock Song

Great music starts off with engaging tone and this song is really remarkable. All the way from stanza to the refrain are accompained of brilliant rock-guitar sound and the perfect played drums. I like the melodic bass-lines still concentrated on the base drum. That´s not simple especially in the fills and mark a professional bass player. This song characterizes also extraordinary syntheziser generated sound coming at the right time. Brilliant sounding refrain and the unique vocals including great lyrics is an extrafactor what makes the song creative. The imaginative transitions from the stanza to the chorus makes the song lively and creative. The fantastic played e-guitar solo in the bridge increases this tune and is another extra factor. This song is from a musician, who understand what good music is about. Also the mixing and mastering is professionell. This a powerful arrangement influenced by alternativ rock and independent music in perfect orchestration. I can´t stop listen to this song and I´m sure, you will likewise add. Let others know your recommendation.


This has a terrific 80's swagger to it. Combining rock and electronic elements with a dance driven backing, this draws you in from start to finish. With a decent chorus hook and biting guitar dubs I would like more from this artist.

Nice work guys.

A fine and distinctive voice heads the show. Like the down stroke guitar that drives the song forward and the organ is sumptuous. Human League and Franz Ferdinand take a ride with Teleman and the rest! A memorable carousel. Like the guitar breaking through at the end. Lush.

I will survive you:

Great song perfect mix. Very catchy tune with lyrics that make sense and go with the melody. The voice fits perfectly to give the intended feel to this session. Song to me is telling the the girl that the singer will get over you and move you n with his life. He will find another, one better, one that will stay.

Nice Overall Feel

Hello. Thanks for sharing. This song has a nice catchy rhythmic sound. Your vocals sound really good. The lyrics were really good to. Never stop making music. I think you've found your therapy for lifes coping skills & in your own lane. Smiles.

Brillante y energética...

Desde el comienzo del tema nos damos cuenta que estamos ante una canción que brilla por su originalidad desde ese primer instante que se adentra con un sonido muy sicodélico hasta esos arreglos sutiles de guitarras que se van transformado en energía pura y natural con sabrosa intensidad. Las bases rítmicas muy elegantes y contundentes. La voz del intérprete también recorre paisajes inundados de gran calidad y le aporta esa energía que toda canción rock necesita.

Retro-80's Dance Will Survive.

"I Will Survive You" takes you to the 1980's dance halls and clubs. It helps you imagine letting-loose on the dance floor during that time period. A solid track with a solid lyric. The lead vocal is cool. A bit lower register male vocal than you might normally hear in Pop-like music today. Also,the guitar work is nice. It is tactfully played,and I like the texture.

I will...review

Hi! it was as if the TV monitor was destroyed at the beginning, but it was safe after the song come in. is this a band? there was a sense of stability as if i had played together for a long time good music thank you

Quite Good

Love the intro. Once the music kicks in it is easy to dance to and the voice blends in very well with the lyrics. I do not know how smart it is to name it 'I Will Survive' as that is the title of one of the most popular songs of all time and I can guarantee every single person who ever sees and/or plays the song will think it is a cover song, and will be disappointed when they find out it is not and that could lead to bad reviews or dislikes out of spite. Why not call it 'Not the Only One'? It is a good tune though, well done.
