Todo Los Dolores (Devendra Banhart cover)

October 9, 2008 6:01 PM

Jumping in on the music challenge to cover a song in a language you don't speak. I have no idea what I am saying in this song.

Apologies to Devendra Banhart for the whole thing, apologies to Devendra Banhart fans for wussing out at the end and just making noise. At least it was a good excuse to get back in the buried studio after ages away.

Hey, as of right now this post is definitely eponysterical: since we're the only two so far to try it, you're definitely buried next to me!

Sounds great to me! Maybe native speaker micayetoca will drop by and give his opinion on the finer points of your pronunciation and delivery.

And I really like that guitar outro, man. I love it when things get a little jumbled and tumbled like that. Lotta juice there. I was hoping it would last longer, actually.

Don't forget the NotInEnglish tag!

There's something about listening to a song sung by someone who doesn't speak the language that is very endearing to me. This is lovely.

It's funny that even though you have no idea what you're singing, and neither do I, that I still kinda get it on an emotional level. BRAVO!
