I was actively working on a heavier and darker version of that, but then that damn Manson album came out. Likewise with "Very Good Advice" from Alice in Wonderland. Mine would have been way weirder than the Cure's version, but now I can't.

    Edit - But also, this one was actually too slow for me to play, so I recorded a scratch rhythm guitar at normal time and then slowed it down to half. Pretty sure I used Nashville tuning so that the octave drop put it in normal tuning, but I don't remember for sure if that stayed in the mix.

    For some reason that link did't work and I couldn't find the song on your YouTube channel.

    Are you searching for videos for the songs that I said couldn't record because somebody else did it first? Cause I didn't.

    A friend and I have an imaginary cartoon series that doesn't actually have occasional holiday specials, and we've recorded a few covers for those, and this is probably the most coherent, but they're all on my BC.

    Exactly. Then I tried to join the Partnership for a Drum Free America but I couldn't because I'm a member of The Partnership for a Facebook Free World.

    I'm a sucker for early 80's Belgian Post Punk. It's a really amazing sub sub-genre. Too bad there are only a small handful of bands.

    I tried two different covers of this (posted below) but can't quite hit the mark. Belgian Post Punk is hard to cover.

    Apologies in advance to Stones fans.

    Whats with all you little girls posting MP3's that we have to download to frickin listen to Damnit Jim it's 2019!

    Fer Cripes sake!

    OK I'll play... It's been too long to remember which member it was that inspired me here....but it was a member here..that did Bob Dylan's "Like a rolling Stone" a little different...I was inspired and one day coming home from work came to find that I could sing like a crazy person if I was willing to rip my vocal chords into shreds..so I pulled up to the house...ran back to the "studio" and laid down a rough track......OUCH! went back the next day with torn vocal chords and recorded one more time LIVE

    Y'all know Dylans and Hendrix's version and now frickin Tomco's interpretation of the classic........

    Okay, I'll bite. This one is not quite so obscure, but we, uh, didn't quite cover it so close.

    Here's the original:




    Here's our version:

    Rope them goats yeah I rope them goats it's right where I belong

    I rope them goats yeah rope them goats and sing the goat rope song
