Singing in the Shower on the 4th of July

I got a new headset mic (like for Skype calls) and wanted to test it out. Not bad! Anyway, happy BBQ and Beer day tomorrow, if you're in the US! Or hell, even if you're not!

Cock Robin [second take]

A four-part a cappella take on an old English nursery rhyme. The melody is traditional; the harmonic lines were written by my friend Laura, who also sings each line. This is our first attempt at this (her first performing, my first recording/producing) and I'm still trying to think of ways to make it better.

Na Na, Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye) [Steam cover]

If, at a meetup, bondcliff hadn't pointed out this month's music challenge to me, I might have covered this song eventually anyway.
But since it's this month's challenge, and since bondcliff and I were born on the same day/month/year (same city and same first and middle name, too), I decided, hey, why not do a nutty, rushed job on it instead so that it actually means something. [more inside]

Hail Rock Hall

Pirates For Sail is headed to the Rock Hall Pirate Festival this weekend. I rearranged the event's theme song into a madrigal of sorts, and made a quick-and-dirty laptop demo just to see if I could. [more inside]

Fulfilling two of the Challenges for July: Wildcard (music you hate = techno) and Music (ripped off James Bond Theme riff). Also, going for the trifecta, it's a cappella (June's Style Challenge). And it's still July 31st in some parts of the world, so I think this should be allowed in the door.

Gaoth Barra na dTonn

My take on this wonderful Irish Gaelic song, which I learned from Clannad, and which was written by Diarmuid MacDiarmada. Donegaler Mefites, please don't kill me if I've mangled the pronunciation! [more inside]

The Private's Lament

The companion piece to the Turret Gunner's Farewell. This one's about my other great uncle, who fought in WWI and lived to tell the tale. (A bit more downbeat than TGF, and a bit of creative licence taken regarding his hometown.)

White Lines (a cappella)

These are the sort of things that occur to me as I go for my daily walk. Four-and-five-part harmony plus solo, bass and vocal percussion. Recorded in GarageBand using my MacBook's built-in mic.
