Song of the (Bi-)Week, Week 6: "Sunday Morning"

Because for some reason, these things never go as planned. I was all set to post a slow pretty version of "Sunday Morning" by the Velvet Underground, using only a clean, warm electric guitar, and a bass synth pad. Then, around midnight on Thursday, I had a Eureka moment, and came up with this instead (and incidentally kept my girlfriend awake until about 3am WHOOPS). Realizing I had to be awake in 6 hours, I decided to postpone the release of the song until....well, Sunday morning. How do ya like that! Enjoy!

Song of the (Bi-)Week, Week 2: "Magic"

This (bi-)week, I decided to go in the complete opposite direction of my last installment. Instead of a mellow, ambient cover of a jangly folk-pop song, I decided to cover "Magic" by The Cars, and inevitably spent way too much time on all of the synthesized parts and backing vocals. This one took me a LOT more time than I expected it to, thanks to all the (over) production, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
