It’s been a while since I’ve recorded a cover (let alone anything) for you, oh anonymous listener and follower of this blog. At first I was struggling with motivation, and then I was dealing with negative emotions and the sort. During this time, I was also watching a Korean Drama called “Trot Lovers”, and in one episode the female lead character Choi Choon Hee comes to the realisation that she sings trot not to make others happy but rather, to make herself happy. One way to battle all the negativity in one’s life is to do things that make one happy, and sure enough I feel a little better sharing two versions of the same song tonight.

Tonight we have lower and higher versions of “Sweater Weather” by The Weeknd Neighbourhood. The bridge was absolutely stupid in the original song, so I did away with it. Maybe I’ll do a dual register version sometime? What do you think???

Enjoy!

Here’s the second of two covers from this weekend. This time it’s Bastille’s “Things We Lost in the Fire”, which is an absolutely wonder tune to listen to…so I took it upon myself to do it in a somewhat different key and cut the song up slowly with each of my serrated guitar strings. I’m actually quite thankful my strings aren’t actually serrated. It kind of helps that the nylon classical is still being commissioned as I eventually convince myself to install the replacement string for the steel acoustic.

Here’s the cover which should or should not have been lost in the fire:

The first of the weekend double shot is by Far East Movement, called “Rocketeer”. You know how I have that habit to take songs and do them in a different, borderline boring manner which stretches the song to obscene lengths? I didn’t break that habit… You might even say that’s my confirmed style now. Here’s the original if you’ve never heard it before!
