Yep, definitely taking a day off.
Two songs I like: Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life and The Ataris’ cover of The Boys Of Summer. I love the first one, from the piano intro to the interesting guitar rhythms, all of it. The piano I like because it very vaguely reminds me of the Exorcist theme, a song I think is absolutely brilliant. Just piano, absolutely chilling. It’s one of a handful of songs I wish I had written. Another is Every Breath I Take. I’m rambling.
Anyway, like BMTL, I hear the rest of the album sounds nothing like it but yeah. On the radio they’ve been playing this acoustic version of it that I like. I’m a sucker for acoustic versions. Just, if a song is good, then the production values are secondary and it should still sound good in that setting. I think Beck has this philosophy also, so he plays his music on a muffled radio or something like that when he’s done to make sure it still sounds good. Anyway, yeah, I like acoustic versions. I even like the version of Summer of ’69 on Bryan Adams’ MTV Unplugged. The only versions I can think of off the top of my head that I dislike are Puddle of Mudd’s Blurry and Lifehouse’s Hanging By A Moment. Just, they sing it an octave lower in a way that takes all the passion away. Boring.
Whoa, I’m all over the place. Anyway, yeah, I like the Ataris cover also. It works.
