Would it be too emo if I did a cover of Oh My Sweet Carolina?

I just realized this microphone might be a horrible, horrible thing when I'm drunk.

I've done a lot of things on weekends, but that's not one of them.

 
I'm pretty sure.

So, okay. Knowing me, I'll likely never get around to figuring out the logistics of recording myself doing something, so I found a reasonable representation of me doing my singing thing.

We have a pretty big network of musicians at work, and we do a few concerts a year, where you sign up with your band or just yourself, or, which is what I end up doing, pull together your usual suspects and say "hey, we want to do a set of reggae/zydeco/klezmer - want to sing?"

So here is a clip from a show a few years ago. It was really fun - we did four 80s songs: Back On the Chain Gang (Pretenders), Heartbreaker (Pat Benatar), We Live For Love (Pat Benatar) and everyone's favorite one-hit-wonder-from-Seattle, Harden My Heart (Quarterflash).

There've been other shows I've done with mostly the same group of musicians, but the only other videos still online right now are ones where I'm just singing back up. We're hoping to do a set of early U2 songs, a la a bunch of tracks from the Red Rocks show, but we didn't get on the bill for the fall show. My fingers are crossed that it actually happens (we need to recruit a guitarist), because obviously, I would just be over-the-moon excited about that.

The quality isn't the greatest on this (but at least you can hear me), and I hate watching myself sing because I'm such an ungodly dork, but it's the only one of the clips where I'm reasonably pleased with how I sound (let's just say that those two beers I had did not help me sing Pat Benatar any better).

Dig my "saxophone" solo on the funny little keyboard. Oh, and the bass player does exist - he's just hiding in the shadows.

YouTube - harden my heart

Ta-daaaaa.

That playing of the saxsynth was pretty intense.

Well done on the vocals. Very strong.

Nice singing, cori! I'd love to hear you tackle some early U2 (Pat Benatar isn't quite up my alley...).

Thanks! Believe me, if this thing ever happens, I am putting that shit all over the internet (well, I mean here and Facebook).

Diemen, you should upload something and wow us with your piano prowess. Smack us with a little Liszt.

As soon as my thumb heals up (sidenote: it's interesting watching your thumb regrow a chunk of skin/tissue that was sliced off) I'll see what I can whip up. Though Liszt wouldn't really be a "cover" would it?

Well ... you didn't write it, did you?

I thought you already had some stuff recorded - didn't you send me some MP3s of some pieces you'd done or something a few years ago? I thought we had exchanged our old piano recitals or something.

I had the same thing happen with my pinky finger over the summer. Sliced it while working. It healed back with a noticeable scar on it and there's still some pain if I pressure it in a certain way. But my first thought was that it would fuck up the cops if they found my fingerprints. (side note: I have only a vague understanding of how fingerprints work)
