Reviving old song


Attached are 2 scratch tracks of a song called Small Town Romance. I originally recorded the song in 1994 on an old Tascam 4 track and want to "redo" it and update it a bit. With the 2 new versions of the song posted, I have questions about what direction I should go and looking for some feedback.

STR2009 is pretty stock a lot like how I originally recorded it on the 4 track, except I am playing it a few steps down in tuning.

STR2009up1 is played up a step tuning than STR2009 and I incorporated a melodic idea for the intro riff that is repeated during the song.

My questions are:

1. Does my voice "feel" better tuned up verses the STR2009?
2. Also, my 4 track limited my on layering the song, now in the digital world I have the ability to "add" to it but do not want to abuse it. I fear the simple stock version may be better and I am overdoing it with adding the melodic part to the song???
3. Overall feel of the song...what do you think.

Thanks for any input.

Ahhhh, screen was too big and the image wasn't computing for me. I see it now, and that is funny. Sorry.
