Miracles

You’d be hard pushed to find a shitter band than Insane Clown Posse. Their particular brand of offensive sub-par misogynistic rap-core seems to attract retarded fans by the score, who dress up as clowns and assert that “nobody understands them”.

“Jugglos”, they call themselves. Well, we do actually understand you. I know it seems weird, but we understand really well, you see, we just think you’re all massive twats.

Anyway, today I was feeling a little creative, so I took an ICP song (well, I say “song”, I don’t really know what it should be called), “Miracles”, and transformed it from a crappy rap-core song into a traditional folk dirge. I tried to make it moving and epic, but as I was pushed for time it’s a little rough around the edges. Still, the people who’ve heard it seem to think it’s good, and have suggested I make some more.

What do you guys think?

Cover of the day

So I worked out how to play Stitches by Much the Same today. It’s a great song – the original is melodic hardcore, but of course it gets the acoustic treatment here. Probably still needs a bit of work before it’s street ready, but here you go. It’s about being trapped in a broken relationship… something we’ve probably all been through at some point.

Lyrics:

A violent scream is better than
The whisper of sweet nothings
Which hold us together.
But I’ll never understand
Why we don’t let the flames burn the fan.
No I’ll never understand
Why we don’t let the flames burn the fan

Kindness is where we fail.
Don’t understand why we’re happier to be
In discontent, this life is not well spent;
Is it better to suffer than to be alone?

So hide your heart and close your mind.
Puth the key in a dark place where I can’t find
And don’t forget to lie
‘Cause we would rather leave the truth behind
Yeah don’t forget to lie
‘Cause we would rather leave the truth behind

Kindness is where we fail.
Don’t understand why we’re happier to be
In discontent, this life is not well spent;
Is it better to suffer than to be alone?

If I treated you like dirt
Would you stick to me like mud?
Why is this your idea of love?
I can’t be clean,
I’ve come apart at the seams,
Stitches can’t fix everything.

Song of the day

It’s a cover version today. A rather fantastic cover as well.

It’s a shame that you think you have to live this way
It’s a shame that you never have known
You’d travel so far and you’d have so much power
If only you would let the real you show

It’s a shame you think you have to live a lie
It’s a shame that you think you have to try
To please everyone else when you don’t even please yourself
Now isn’t that the worst kind of life?

When you look into the mirror, do you see someone you hate?
Why do you listen to what all those empty people say?
You don’t need them around, they just wanna keep you down
But there’s a better way

It’s a shame you think this is how it has to be
It’s a shame you make everything so hard
I wish you could see that you’re beautiful to me
And I think you’re perfect just the way you are

Song of the day with a twist

Today’s song of the day is “So Cold” by Breaking Benjamin, but I thought that instead of the actuaal song I’d record myself singing it. So here it is. DISCLAIMER: I’m not very good on guitar so I cheated with the chords a bit. Also I mess up a couple of times but hey, who’s counting, right?
