There She Goes Again

July 8, 2009 8:30 PM

My submission to the Music Challenge, July 2009 edition. Advice to the lovelorn john from Uncle Lou.

I was assigned to cover "There She Goes Again" from The Velvet Underground and Nico. Of all the songs on all the albums, flapjax had to pick that one. So I decided to drink a couple of beers and anchor myself to the computer with my guitar and trusty keyboard. This was recorded in ... umm ... under three hours I had this song in mind when laying it down.

There's something compelling about this. I can't stop listening even though part of me wants to stop. It's like listening to the voice of Brooklyn, giving advice you don't want to hear, even though it's true.

i love the synth sound in this. the awkward 4<>3 changes are also nice. and my solution is also physical violence.

You're insane, n_o_d.

I should've given you Heroin. And I mean the drug, not the song.

You know what, though? Your voice sounds uncannily like a pitched-up version of Steve Buscemi, the actor. Has anyone ever told you you sound like him?

Hah, flapjax, nobody's ever said that about me, but I may want to aim for that! I'll start by re-watching The Big Lebowski and Ghost World. And huffing a lot of helium.

Ha, this is too much! And now that flapjax mentions it, this really does sound a lot like Buscemi! If it's gonna be that kinda party, I'm gonna do my song in Bobby DeNiro voice. How do like that? Heh? Heh?! (kidding of course!)

Seriously, this kicks ass!

This, exactly. This is hilariously weird. So matter-of-fact.
