At least you can blend in chorus. Well one hopes at least.

It is funny the only songs I can actually sing okay are the falsetto's of The Fly, Lemon and Numb. Also Psycho Killer by Talking Heads.

I'm literally just recording these on Sound Recorder, so they're all in one take, nothing over-dubbed or added together. Makes it frustrating, sometimes. Also, my mic sucks.

I played it to Prom Girl and she didn't believe it was my actual voice. She thinks I sounded a lot like David Gilmour, which surprised me.

For those interested, here are my U2 covers. I highly recommend the Hallelujah Here She Comes cover. YBR is pretty meh. The vocal is the only thing that's better than average. I wish I could go back in time and punch myself in the face for choosing the guitar tone I did for the solo at the end.

Hallelujah, Here She Comes
Your Blue Room

Oh god, I just discovered a whole swag of stuff on my external hard drive that I'd forgotten I'd recorded. The file of Seconds is named "Seconds (Make It Stop Mix)". There's stuff like God Part II, Miracle Drug, and The Fly here too.

YES.

I can't wait to play Brest Railway Museum, personally. The airfare to Belarus might cost a lot, but it'd be worth it! We've got to take our music to the world.

Oh dear, here's the cover of Lady Stardust I recorded with only half a voice. This is brutal.

My singing voice is less than spectacular.

It doesn't help that most of my friends refer to it as "Ashley's Man Voice."

Some of the others:

- All Because Of You (All Because It's Bad Mix)
- Miracle Drug (Thoroughly Butchered Mix)
- Numb (No More Dignity Mix)
- The Fly (Squashed Fly Mix)

Why do I still have this stuff!

I actually wish I had a strong female voice. There are things that only a strong female voice can express.
