Nope, it's just "fans" ripping off fans

I just wonder how an alternate mix of Dominic could sound like...what about an electronic duet with the beatles on hey jude for the next rip off release?

Wow! They will be talking about these sterling releases for years. An alternate of Dominique. This is the xxx rated take in which Dominique chases the old brown cow all around the barnyard. Biggest find in the music industry history! And it's a fun song as the faithful often say on this site.
