Request: "I have long wished for a happy, loud, upbeat version of The Beatles 'Michelle.'" [more inside]
Silly instrumental in 11/8.
I've was in a bit of a Beatles mood last weekend, and recorded this as well as my previous post of "And Your Bird Can Sing". It's been fun to redo the songs with my arsenal of sampled orchestra, etc. I'm not the greatest singer, but I've learned a lot listening to the original, and working with my own voice.
So scody had a medical adventure today
, which got me thinking about how awesome scody is and how much I enjoyed hanging out with her and being music dorks in LA last fall, and this is one of the songs I remember really enjoying during our drunken singalongery. [more inside]
When I'm in a prolonged songwriting funk - which I am now - it can sometime take a cover of a favorite tune to snap me out of it. Let's hope this does. [more inside]
A cover of the Beatles song
by the informal band I'm in, recorded very
poorly at our last basement jam session. [more inside]
New take on the Beatles classic with GarageBand. [more inside]
Continuing with the theme from yesterday
, (and as promised), here's my version of "Twist and Shout." Is it any good? That's for you to decide. I hope it is.
Perhaps "I'll Get You" is next?
In hono(u)r of the anniversary of the nucleus of the Beatles coming together
, I bring you a cover of a song that both Lennon and McCartney derided as not all that good, but I always kinda liked. Maybe tomorrow, I'll upload my version of "Twist and Shout." :-)
of A Day in the Life
, penned earlier today by the highly overrated
gentleman known as It's Raining Florence Henderson
in response to disturbing revelations
. Apologies to John. Paul can stuff it.
I'm singing and playing the Reggie Lucas-written hit off Madonna's first album, but I just threw in George Harrison's wistfully lilting lick on the Beatles' "Revolver" classic for fun.
