Forget About (Sibylle Baier cover)

June 30, 2018 1:14 PM

Cover of this beautiful song by Sibylle Baier. Guitalele, flute/clarinet/marimba/wurlitzer piano synths.

You made me forget about
Have, want, exert
And all of a sudden, I feel proud
Of being, without saying a word

You made me forget about
Past and pain
Time, you washed out
Like a soft, sudden, summer rain

You do me good
You do me
So good, you made me forget about

Wow. Damn, this is gorgeous. I like the musical squirrels that peek around the corners of each measure. And the feel. And your voice is perfect for this.

Do you like the guitalele? That thing looks fun.

Thanks umbu! It was a but of a desperation purchase, but I’m actually surprised by how versatile it is. I think it could be really nice combined with a normal guitar.

As always, bass/drums come automatically added by my robot bandmate app Music Memos (this is recorded on an iPhone), which tirelessly tries to keep time with me.

Yeah, very nice.
I love that you use the Music Memo drummer; I can't hear past it and always shut that shit right off because it infuriates me but you use it brilliantly and creatively.

Belated note that I featured a bit of this in last month's podcast!
