Wow, this brings back memories. Sweet Dreams was the first song I ever tried to recreate in a tracker... in the late 80s (boy is 42 now) 


I like what you've done, but after the 3 minute mark, I rather feel I'm ready for the chorus, but instead, the song has reached the end. 

I think there could be quite an impact if you somehow managed to squeeze that in - somehow. The original song is controlled, with the tight synth arp and "talk, rather than singing". To me, this is exactly why the song is such a classic - the gospel-alike chorus, once it arrives, feels like such a liberating contrast.
