Wow. Out of the blue. Thanks guys. I only wish I had written better songs for you to cover! Nevertheless, you seem to have made chicken salad out of chicken shit, and it's amazing. Now, I need to clear out the studio and make some more!

Hey, wait, where's mine?
I put it here:
http://heuristicsinc.com/media/vocal/He ... Cover).mp3

Here I am, sitting in JB's living room, and he asks me, "so what music are you working on now?" and I wasn't going to tell him, "oh, it's just a cover of one of your songs for the SUPER SECRET HXARO..." My reply was vague.

a) fluffy's post needs to be copied to fdrink, stat

b) Chiron Return, your version of "Wrath of God" is so 80's, I adore it.

c) Boffo, good on you for finding the secret track at the end of my "Two Bucks & I'm Yours"-- what you may not have known is that I conscripted Raised by Wolves to make that. I basically said "Hey, I want a secret track at the end of my song this week. Send me something." And that's what RxW sent. So this is a super-secret RxW cover!

Yeah I kept on trying to figure out how to ask him for the lyrics to 'Yellow Lasers' out of the blue without getting any suspicions up since my idea originally was to do a spoken-word rendition of the # version in harmony with a sung version of the JB version but I like what I ended up doing better instead.

Also I'm still a little high. Holy shit.

Some really really excellent stuff in this in any case. I think my favorite one relatively-sober is RMosquito's "Husky Youth." And don't miss HeuristicsInc's one! Note that phpBB mangled the URL really badly in his post above.
