Halle Hula - live from Hāpuna Beach

Sat down yesterday with my new uke, at a beach on the west cost of the Big Island, to revisit my Cohen/Elvis parody from several years ago.

Always On My Mind (cover)

Resonator and baritone uke, trying to channel Willie Nelson though maybe via John Darnielle a little it turns out. [more inside]

Dark as a Dungeon

An old Merle Travis song that I learned years ago when I first started getting into bluegrass. Another chance to break in the new resonator guitar, and do some fun chorus harmonies. [more inside]

Hot Cha

It's They Might Be Giant's Hot Cha for the MetaFilter Flood cover album. And, yes, it goes a bit strange at times.

Ringfinger (by Nine Inch Nails)

This was my submission to a project in which various artists covered songs from Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine using at least one circuit bent or modified instrument (Soundcloud link). This one uses a reklus-modified Korg DDD1 and Monotribe (along with a sweet ring modulator he built).

Through The Fire And Flames (acoustic cover)

You've probably heard DragonForce's highly entertaining power metal piece de resistance before (maybe in Guitar Hero III). This is like that, only not. [more inside]

I like this song, so I sang it in a room by myself.

Chin Up, Cheer Up

This is a cover of a Ryan Adams song off his album Demolition. Unashamedly cheerful and bouncy, even if I have no idea what it's actually about. Video is here. [more inside]

Is It True?

I'm not ashamed to admit that I love the Eurovision Song Contest. So here's a cover of Iceland's entry from the 2009 Contest, originally sung by the very lovely Yohanna. Video version (of my cover, not the original) is here. [more inside]

Rock The Casbah

What with revolutions going on in the Middle East, this seems like a particularly appropriate song right now. It's a cover of the Clash's fantastic original, although I have to say I'm not sure Joe Strummer would recognise it as being anything close to his creation. Video version is here. [more inside]

God Only Knows

Just something we did for fun this weekend. I can only take credit for the singing and half of the snaps.

Complicated (Avril cover)

I still don't know why exactly I just did this, but here is a deeply lo-fi cover of Avril Lavigne's Complicated, from vague memory and sight-read lyrics, on an iPhone using the Sonoma Wireworks/retronyms application FourTrack. [more inside]

Halle Hula

When Elvis Met Leonard. Nothing but uke, vox, and questionable taste. [more inside]

Zillion (cover)

Zillion was a game for the Sega Master System. This is a song from the game (which you can see/hear here -- this song starts about 17 seconds in). I have, however, added lyrics, which are about the game's lack of a save function. With 77 tracks of tiny instruments, this song is probably my grandest musical venture yet. [more inside]

Holy Diver

Yes, that wasn't an idle threat. For your listening pleasure, I present to you Dio's "Holy Diver" on ukulele, electric ukulele, drums, and far too many vocal tracks. [more inside]

Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future (is a Cover))

I know this song has been uploaded right at the very end (if not shortly beyond) of the MeFi Music Challenge, but I went through a number of songs in the long debate to find a MeFite's song to cover, eventually landing on the one that most frequently gets stuck in my head. That song is Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future) by chiefbluefeather. [more inside]
