HERE IS ADEDLE HERE: CHASOING PAVEMENTS.
i really struggled with this song, i couldnt really get anywhere with it. i took the initial chord progression and then listened to the rest of the song once, and then forgot about the chorus , took the lyrics and did what i probably would have done with it.
apologies for the delay on putting this up, have been very busy all week with other musical things and couldnt get round to finishing this off.
again, this was one take for both vocals, which explains some bad timings throughout.
i think it works better with vocals quite high without any effects on.
enough talking about adele. the only thing that i have encountered this week is the jared leto '30 seconds to mars, 20 minutes of ang lee rip off , 10 minutes of credits and poor dialogue'
highlights indicating that jared leto can bridge the same singer/ actor gap as greats like bruce willis ( something blues with a boardwalk in), eddie murphy ( party all the time, probably something offensive about aids or gay people) or that fit one from hollyoaks who went on a cruise ship but was in allstars include these gems:
jared leto examining a map, looking fit but confused: 'its like a map, so bizarre'
jared leto examining a scroll outlining what gift he has recieved, looking fit but confused: ' this is a gift?'
comments , feedback etc always appreciated and occasionally acted upon.
love you x

BASSHUNTER IS NUMBER ONE AND HE IS GORGEOUS AND THE HIGHEST ENTRY IS LUPE FIASCO. HERE YOU GO MATE. its all change in the charts this week, good old britney's ket adventure putting her in good stead in the top 5. leon jacksons gone already, very sad times for music yes right there.
so , onto the song. ive changed the dogme rules again to make things more interesting.
from now on, its going to be the first take of the lead vocals and the backing. im not allowed another chance at it. its what ive been doing for the last few weeks anyway.
the last few have been pretty straight up, faithful -ish covers, but i thought id just take the chord progression and make it as fennesz esque as you can on gameboy. for some reason when you switch between different things too much on different channels sometimes it can glitch and go a bit mental. have no idea why this is, but it happens on the last chorus, and i think it sounds pretty boss. if you like that kind of thing. if you dont, sorry for everything.
having currently played the last gig in my old band, i am struck with the realisation that in the mean time, the only things i really do involve cover versions of pop songs on gameboy. i think this is a good thing.
so, onto other pop news. amelle from t' sugababes has smacked some lass .
shes in trouble with the police. i think i could be the person to tame her wild ways. perhaps i would take her to ferry meadows or perhaps to woburn safari park as these are calming places, and then i could play her some slowdive and my bloody valentine perhaps and she would perhaps join a new band. perhaps.

playing with fire
no, i dont think its ridiculous in the slightest. took me two attempts to get the vocal because i pissed myself reading the lyrics the first time. have to maintain some level of professionalnesses. i basically just took the keyboard line and bassline. from the intro and rocked it minimal style. was quite tempted to slip into a bit of dave gahan.
