I started working on this song over a month ago, and now it’s done! Not much else to say, really.

A Song a Week 44: The Hitmaker Algorithm – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight) (Ramones cover)

December 13th, 2010

I was asked to put together a Christmas song for a holiday themed mix tape, so I decided to go with a Hitmaker Algorithm cover of the Ramones classic Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight). I don’t think this will go on the Hitmaker Algorithm punk album, but I do really like how it came out.

A Song a Week 43: The Bad Felt – Captain Vegetable

December 8th, 2010

This is probably the silliest song The Bad Felt will ever do, but only time will tell. I love the different voices Bren did for different characters.

At this point it’s probably pretty unlikely that I’ll finish 52 songs by the end of the year, but I will keep posting “weekly” songs on here until I get to 52, even if it takes until March 2011! We have another Bad Felt song pretty much finished, and I’m working on two different Hitmaker Algorithm songs, so I’ll probably post a couple more songs this week.

November 12th, 2010

Alright, back to The Hitmaker Algorithm. This song was just too perfect for Hitmaker Algorithm to cover, I can really imagine these lyrics applying to him. This is the first Hitmaker Algorithm song to not be in 4/4 time, and it’s also the one that I had to mess with the structure the most (it would have been over six minutes long if i kept the same numbers of riffs for each section as in the original). Huge thanks to dr. stryker for figuring out the chord progressions for me, since I somehow couldn’t find chords for this song online.
