LemonMelon - By Request Only

Remember those booths you see in old movies where you pop in a shiny nickel and you receive an incredibly indietastic, lo-fi vinyl recording of yourself fucking around for a minute? I'm welcoming them to the 21st century. Only, unlike in ye olden years, everything of no value or quality is free, and everything else is far more expensive than before. And, because we're even lazier than ever before, I'll do all the work for you!

The catch? None. You request a song, I don't give a shit what it is, as long a recording exists that I can listen to for 30 seconds and make up on the spot with a rickety acoustic guitar, and I'll record it in horrible laptop microphone quality. The trick to this thread is being creative with the song choices: think of something you either want to hear a REALLY fucked up version of, or something that you never, ever expected to hear covered in your life. Possibly both.

Do I gain anything from this? Mostly, I want to get my chops back after a long time of not playing guitar all that much. I have a band of my own that I will not bore you with at this time. Plus, you know, lulz. I do enjoy partaking of those.

I'll be uploading my files with divshare.com, which offers a cute little embedded media player. Should run smoothly, I've seen it used multiple times before with no fuss.

Let the festivities begin! I have a couple of early requests that I'll hit up tomorrow afternoon:

bono_212: M83 - Car Chase Terror!
The Sad Punk: Isaac Hayes - By The Time I Get To Phoenix

Good call.

Also, more masculine than Karma Chameleon.

I was going to suggest It's Raining Men, but I like yours better.

So instead:

Honey Pie, The Beatles.

Assassin by Muse?

Better yet, anything by the Backstreet Boys (only the pre-2000s stuff, mind you)

Current queue:

bono_212: M83 - Car Chase Terror!
The Sad Punk: Isaac Hayes - By The Time I Get To Phoenix, Gwen Stefani - 4 In The Morning
KhanadaRhodes: Culture Club - Karma Chameleon, Prince - Kiss
GirlsAloudFan: Britney Spears - I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman
lazarus: The Beatles - Honey Pie
major_panic: Muse - Assassin (Backstreet Boys wouldn't be nearly as hard to duplicate though )
cobl04: System Of A Down - Chop Suey!
Headache in a Suitcase: Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

Hope to get a good chunk of these done this afternoon. I don't concern myself with mixing, mastering, and all that crap that holds U2 back.

DAmn you! I saw this title and was totally going to request that.

Or I want it that way by the BSB?

As demeaning as all of these would be, the pop songs are actually a lot easier to cover. I think there has been enough demand for Backstreet Boys that I'll put you down for that.
