I heard a really great cover of the needle and the damage done years ago when I was with Joel at the radio station but I have forgotten the bands name. I need to hear it...

Brom-Yr-Aur Stomp - Led Zeppelin

 :love5:

A lot of those acoustic Zep tunes are ridiculously difficult to sing and play at the same time (if you actually want to do 'em right), but that one wasn't all that tough to do. :)

jdfu!

....Every junkie is like a setting sun.

Could have been quite a few bands, quite a few have done it.
I remember a pretty popular version in the 90s by Our Lady Peace I think it was.
Was it a male or female singer?

i just learned the chords to Silverchair's - Those Thieving Birds. i had to watch somebody on youtube.com playing it, and then make my own flipping TAB charts in word. it also helped to know that you need a capo on the fourth fret. xD


now i need to transcribe the chords for Strange Behavior, TTBs 2, Ana's Song, The Greatest View, Miss You Love, search for Paint Pastel Princess, and find a decent TAB chart for Fields of Gold (Eva Cassidy's version), since it's in my head due to my Jazz Vocal Ensemble doing a choir version of it. (of which i still have the music).


i can now, also, play the music for Portal's ending song Still Alive on the piano, but not so well on the guitar, due to how Johnathan Coulton's voicing. eap. ~frowns~ i like the sound of the piano better, anyway. so much myoosic.

If any of you bitches are going to be in Brownsville, I'm covering Dear Jenny in my friend's basement on saturday.

But not like usual, when I get drunk and pound on the piano with my dick and sing badly, at like, three in the morning.

No, this is fo' realzies. There are like, twenty people coming. We're having booze and snacks, and there are a few other people who are going to do random musical things. And some random art things, because I have a case of twenties clothes that I dragged from my grandma's attic, and we're going to get dressed up and take pictures. And maybe run around browntown yelling random twenties catchprases. Twenty-three-skidoo!

Oh, and maybe random sex things, if we get too drunk. It's a party.

Posting another notice of this in Shameless Self-Promotion wouldn't hurt.

had the electric guitar plugged in the other night (something I don't usually do much anymore), and Madonna's song "Like A Prayer" came on the radio. The whole song just spilled from my hands and vocal cords...gonna have to polish it up a lot (I don't really know the lyrics), but I think that one's gonna join the rotation soon.   :)
