    cover of imagine?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I tryed to figure out Imagine for fun and ended up finishing a version and I was on a recording spurt.

    I could not remember the words and dont know why I did it like this but well.

    I wanted it all in one take, so mistakes an all, live.

    Do you think I have ruined the song? if so sorry. I was kindof happy I finished something in under an hour.

    I know the harmony is kindof wierd too and the middle bit doesn`t actually exist but is that aloud?

    Its my first cover so be gentle cos I know that the original is untouchable.



    Lol, sorry dinner was getting cold! ha

    You've got a real unique voice.Good choice of cover and you did that great man and all of us a favor by reminding everyone that we're all here together,forever and ever until we fuck with hyper-dimensional physics and displace our planet to another part of the universe.Good job

    and thanx Sam

    Ok, I got the link from another thread.

    To me, John Lennon is definitely the number one beatle and the most important artist in music overall, so I'm especially interested in covers of his work.

    I wouldn't count Imagine as one of my favourites, but that doesn't change the fact, that your performence is outstanding. You've got one hell of a voice and the guitar playing is exellent.

    The sound quality of both vocals and guitars is top class.

    Personally, I wouldn't change the original that much if I was to make a cover, but thats only a matter of principle I guess .

    Nevertheless, I'm really touched by your performance. It sounds like you should be heading for the big game.

    Thanks a lot for sharing and best wishes from

    Erik

    well.. I hate that song...


    but leave it to you to make it sound good...


    Your guitars were really tight on this one. (for the most part) They really filled it out. Pretty freaking good for an hour... considering my crap takes two or three days just for the first mix.


    Oh yeah... and why aren't you on the radio yet, you schmoe? Come on man.. just stand out on a street corner somewhere with a big sign saying "Voice of Gold for sale".


    Have I mentioned that I'd kidnap you if you ever came to the States....?


    No...?



    Oh..



    well I would.

    I was kindof covering this song, but I defaced it a little more.

    Try it with these lyrics.

    Gee I really like cornbread... wrote a song about it.. like to here it? here it go.

    Imagine theres no cornbread..
    Its easy if you try.
    Wonderbread dont make no fucking cornbread
    only white and rye.

    Imagine theres no cornbread
    only white and rye..
    woo hoooo woo hooo hoo

    Imagine theres no roastbeef...
    It isnt hard to do...
    first there was no cornbread.
    now the roast beefs gone too..

    What will we have for dinner???
    Im sick of Tuna Fish...
    woo hoooo woo hoo hoo.

    Some say .. they like cornbread..
    so we're not the only ones.
    In a world where the cornbread is king...
    running out is just no fun....

    I think this song has more of your vibe/style than the original. You can totally change the words and claim this yours Don't get me wrong tho, I think this is great.
    And, honestly, listening to your recordings has always prevented me from buying more gears and just try to focus on song-writing and enjoying the music.

    Is that still your little pepper bottle acting as a maracas?
