Worry About The World (cover/mashup)

September 22, 2016 5:51 PM

This is a cover of a song my dad wrote (that I actually found via combing through his post history on Metafilter after he died)

There was always music and instruments in my house growing up, and as an adult music was something myself and my dad would talk about obsessively. I stole one, then two of his guitars. After he died I found his Mefi music channel and was surprised to discover a lot of recordings I'd never heard before.

My roommate, who is a brilliant audio engineer, actually mashed up a little bit of my dad's original version with mine towards the end of this track. It's a little weird to be duet-ing with my dad across space and time, but I kind of like it and I think he would to. And I think sharing it here is fitting.

Wow, wow. This is (a) a lovely song, and (b) a really neat juxtaposition of yours and DanF's and (c) kinda of getting to me on account of missing him and being glad you're around on the site and the recent history of all that. Thanks for making this (and thanks to your engineer roomie) and for sharing it, it's really wonderful.
