Don't Youtube always pick THE SEXIEST CAPTIONS!?!! No... no they do not!
Yeah, yeah I know... WORST VIDEO EVER! However, I've been trying to put this darn song up for you guys for ever! I had a nice black and white version where you could actually see me playing, and I was wearing clothes AND MY HAT and ya know, being all songbird! BUT, after a million attempts at uploading it, it refused, and so I had to give in to photobooth recording and the fact that I don't have a beautiful shiny grand piano here in Hong Kong! (Last recording was at mums- where pianos and instruments are a plenty!)
I am wearing however, my new all time fave EVER 80's thrifted jumper, which totally reminds me of the Sonia Rykiel jumpers which I die for! Might have to make a retro Disco Pony jumper very soon!!!
Hope you guys like my wailing... This song is "Game Called Life" by the Leftover Cuties. It's the intro to one of my all time favorite (I say all time fave A LOT- but I mean it!) shows called The Big C... If you havent tuned into that, I highhhhly recommend you do! This isn't the entire version of the song... I have to wait until I have a grand piano and some good lighting to make that for y'all! Orrrr in fact a stage and band a la the real version! And a super cool dress to shimmy about in and look all 20's!
Song details: I used garage band to record this, and my macbook air. I just used the built in mic that it comes with, most surprised it didn't crack... every other song I try to sing using this technique seems to crack! Perhaps I have blown the speakers already! I usually record with a separate mic.
I used "Live performance" as a recording choice so it doesn't sound like I am in a stuffy room, however I turned off ambience and echo... incase you are interested!
Happy sunday bunnies, hope I get this song stuck in your lovely heads!!! ;) xx
p.s How could I forget... If you are liking the fact that now my blog looks more like a blog, and less like (I) a technically inept dorkball threw it together, well that's because THIS fine lady hacked into it from Sweden last night (permission granted of course) and made the magic happen, alll night long! It was a good Saturday night if you ask me! THANK YOU ANNIKA, you ROCK MY WORLD!
