On the Youtubes, I found this cover version of The Mountain Goats’ “Palmcorder Yajna” It pretty much rocks my face off.

And here are the Mountain Goats doing it live, for comparison. I mean that I’m linking it for comparison. The Mountain Goats performed it live because, hey, that’s what they do.

Karaoke Tonight!

Posted in beer, Cover Songs, Karaoke, Music, otter on 19 December 2008 by jason

It’s Karaoke Friday at Quaker Steak & Lube by the Strip! This will probably be the last one I go to until school’s back in session, so I hope it’s a good one! I plan on doing this song:

AND, if I get drunk enough, I may try to mock Cocker’s stage presence, too! The otter is so going to break up with me! 😛

Anyway, any readers out there are invited to join us!

This is a cover of a Mountain Goats song. My cat plays with the window, ironically, and the beam of light distracts me. Anyway, any advice on singing and playing is appreciated!

Love-John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band
Hotel Yorba-The White Stripes
Into My Arms-Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Dance Tonight-Paul McCartney
I’m Tongue-Tied-The Magnetic Fields
Absolute Beginners-David Bowie
Another First Kiss-They Might Be Giants

Here’s a previous tape. (The one I’m most proud of!)
Here’s another.
This one’s from a race I ran in.

Ok…here’s what I’m doing…

This is my (not-so-good) performance of Nick Cave’s O Children. I made some mistakes and decided to leave them in. This is my gift to you.

Your gift to me? I want you to tell me what you think I should do to improve. This is the beauty of the internet…an instant audience. You provide feedback, I act on it, I improve, you get to hear me! See how great it is!!!

Well it is, OK?

Have You Ever Seen the Rain? CCR cover by jaynova

A little late for this one. I once recorded it for the otter; now, you get to hear it.

Sorry, but I forgot to turn on a light before filming. You didn’t want to see me anyway, right?
