Rough day? Yeah me too so I figured I would give this song a go since it was the kind of mood I was in. The Gary Jules version is really awesome. I found a vocal track online (not sure who the vocalist is but they had it for sale for $3) so I bought it and then wrote and recorded my own arrangement for the song with guitars, bass, keyboards, and a drum track I created. I didn't use the second verse. Not sure why. I just kind of liked the idea of it being a short little thing. Anyway. I hope I did this great song some justice with my version.

FYI - The fun part starts at 1:44 Smile

KEWL! 
I was getting ready to say I wasn't familiar with the original, but did recognize it once the chorus kicked in.
(also dig the picture in picture for the two guitar parts)

Thanks guys for the comments and for admiring my fashionable T-Shirt Very Happy . Yeah I did a little pic in pic for the heavier part but in reality the rhythm guitar parts are all played twice then panned left/right, the guitar solo three times and layered on top of each other, bass and keys played once. That's too many pic in pics for the screen, and I'm too lazy to film and edit all of that. Smile

Jen thinks I replaced her with a karaoke voice pale . Sorry Jen, you know I love ya and wouldn't do that. Just bored is all and feeling a little down so doing this cover was a little therapeutic.

Also FYI - Here is the original version of the song by Tears for Fears if you've never heard it.

I just thought it was funny that you could buy a karaoke voice-over for $3....that a site like that actually exists is funny. What will they think of next?

So a few days ago, John and I decided we'd get together on this mad little ditty and replace the $3 karaoke. The catch was that I would limit myself to five takes (no practice) and then pull the plug (whether it worked out or not). It was an interesting exercise. Happily, it turned out pretty good. Even better, I had a load of fun doing it.

Yesterday we did some filming for the song (that's always fun) and today John has been putting together a video. Feeling excited about it.

Watch this space.

Thanks!!

Posting the NEW version now. Then I'll be chucking this one Smile My master plan to coax Jenny into singing this by doing it with Karaoke vocals worked! I successfully annoyed her enough to give it a go...and she nailed it like I knew she would. Thanks Jen!!!

In a tearful, hurt sort of way, no. But, yes, in the other more judgey way.    Razz
