  1. What's up, everypony? Woohoo here with another edition of Musical Manslaughter, because you can't spell 'slaughter' without 'laughter' and these songs are jokes. Since I started MMS over a year and a half ago, I ripped apart quite a few types of songs. I've shredded multiple pop songs, a beloved folk song, a reviled metal song, two Christmas songs, a ballad, and even ranted on the things I hate about music in general. I try not to be some other music reviewers where they constantly rant on the same genres and artists. Now for the 10th I'm doing something different in MMS. I'm going to rip apart... a cover song. How do you all feel about cover songs? My opinion? Well, it depends on the song and the artist covering it. It's a very tricky balancing act. You have to balance between making it your own and not straying too far from the original. Those who succeeded in this balancing act have created cover songs that are beloved and enjoyed just as much, if not more than the original. In fact, some covers are so well done, we don't even know it's a cover. However, when done incorrectly, the results can be quite unpleasant. Those who failed in the balancing act, either trying too hard to replicate the original or straying too far from the original, have created covers that make people beg the question... Why did you cover this song?! What's wrong with the original version?! All you did was tarnish your own reputation and butchered the song that should've been left alone! Alright, I've rambled enough on how I feel about cover songs. Now you're probably wondering what cover song am I going to shred? Well, in the last entry, I said it would be a beloved song from the 1970s... and the song is "September" by Earth, Wind, and Fire. What can I say about this song that hasn't really been said? It's definitely on the best "feel good" songs ever. I've been listening to this song as long I could remember. Usually, I listen to it whenever I'm in a bad mood or whenever I need something upbeat and cheerly to listen to. Now what kind of cold, cruel, careless, heartless, evil person would butcher one of life's most wonderful creations? *inhales sharply* It's... her again... Unfortunately, yes. This cover song actually exists no matter how hard anyone can deny it. I just cannot believe that Taylor Swift, of all artists, would cover "September." I also can't believe I'm talking about Taylor Swift again! I thought I was done with her after I abso-fuckin-lutely eviscerated "Shake It Off" on my very first entry of MMS. Oh no-no-no-no, she had to this! Ugh, I haven't even started the review and I can already feel my sanity being drained. Without further ado, let's break it down! Instead of breaking down the song lyric by lyric like I typically do, I'm going to compare the major aspects of both Earth, Wind, and Fire's version and Taylor Swift's version and give my impression of both. Let's start with the intros because... that's where the songs start. Earth Wind and Fire's version begins with its iconic and catchy bassline accompanied by fluttering synths until it crescendos with its bombastic horns. It's a simply yet effect song intro and it gets me pumped up for the rest of the song. As for Taylor Swift's version... there is no intro! She just jumps right to the damn lyrics! How am I supposed to get pumped up now?! Oh boy, and we haven't even gotten to the lyrics yet. Speaking of which, let's talk about the lyrics, starting with Earth, Wind, and Fire... Do you remember the twenty-first night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders, while chasin' the clouds awaaaaaay Our hearts were ringin' in the key that our souls were singin' As we danced in the night, remember how the stars stole the night awaaaaaay Hey, hey, hey, bah-dee-yah, say do you remember? Bah-dee-yah, dancin' in September? Bah-dee-yah, never was a cloudy daaaaaay Don't these lyrics make ya feel good? Do they make you wanna dance? If you don't, then there's probably something wrong with you. What really makes these lyrics enjoyable for me is the vocal delivery. I just love hearing the enthusiasm in Maurice White's voice as well as the backup vocalists during the chorus. I can feel their energy radiating all over the song. In my opinion, energy is really vital in great pop songs. It's what makes 'em... pop! *sigh* Now for Taylor Swift's version... Do you remember the twenty-eighth night of September? Did she... did she just... She changed the first line of the song! Why, Taylor?! I know there's no rules for covering songs but this should be one: Never change the opening line! What was the point of changing 21st to 28th? At least 21st of September has some significance being the first day of Autumn. When you say 28th, September is practically over. Again, what's the point?! But that's not the part of T-Swizzle's version. Let's talk about her vocal delivery. While EW&F's version sounds really energetic, Taylor Swift's version sounds absolutely lethargic, especially during the chorus! Holy shit, she sounds like she's reading a goddamn shopping list!. Hell, Maud Pie has more excitement in her voice than Taylor Swift. I cannot believe I'm gonna say this... she sounded eons more energetic singing "Shake It Off" than on this lobotomy. I think that's the best word I can describe her performance: lobotomized. It really sounds like she lobotomized this song. Taking away everything that made the original so great and replaced with the sound of mayonnaise! Aaaaarrrrggghhhhhhh!! As for the music of Taylor's version, it's nothing but a damn banjo! Why?! Why turn a funky disco song into a mopey country song?! Why is this cover song making me ask so many 'why' questions?! *sigh* I just want to say that I enjoy cross-genre covers, but if they're done right. A well known example of this is the late great Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt." All I can say about this cover is that it's absolutely magnificent. The Man in Black knew what he was doing and he truly made this song his own. Hell, even NIИ's frontman Trent Reznor admits that Cash's cover was superior to the original. Now I wonder how the members of EW&F reacted to Taylor Swift's cover. As it turns out, Allee Willis, who co-wrote the song with the late Maurice White, did comment on Swift's cover. While Willis stated that she didn't hate the cover, she described it as "lethargic as a drunk turtle dozing under a sunflower after ingesting a bottle of Valium." I guess great minds think alike. Alright, I think it's time to wrap it up. And that was Taylor Swift's cover of Earth, Wind, and Fire's "September." Do I hate this-- Why do I keep asking this question you all know I hate the song I just ripped apart?! *sigh* Let me break it down for ya. If there was ever a list of songs that should never be covered, "September" should definitely be on that list. Remember that Powerpuff Girls episode with the evil clown that drains color with everything he touches? That's what Taylor Swift did to "September." She drained away everything vibrant and colorful about the original and left it something as vapid and soulless as mayonnaise. Maurice White must be rolling in his grave. I still cannot fathom why... why would she cover this song? Was trying to troll people? Maybe she likes the song and wanted to do her own rendition? I think it's probably the latter, even though I think her rendition sucks. When this song came out last year, the Internet (especially Twitter) went nuts, calling it one of the worst cover songs ever made. This cover is definitely one of the most unpleasant covers I have ever heard. BTW Taylor, didn't Squidward ever tell you mayonnaise is not an instrument? Now for the final score. It didn't score as high because it wasn't overplayed. But I already heard this song twice and that's overplayed enough for me. And that concludes this entry of Musical Manslaughter. How do you feel about this cover? Was I too harsh or soft? What song will I do next? Tune in next month. Same Woohoo time, same Woohoo blog!
  2. So...played this gem of a song from the Pixar classic "Toy Story". It was a very fun piece to play yet emotional at the same time. Hope you all enjoy!
  3. Long ago I posted a piano cover of A True True Friend I arranged in Finale. Now, here's a live piano cover of A True True Friend. Hope you enjoy
  4. Remember the old argument that the original is usually better than any covers? Well, let's put it to the test! In this thread, I will be posting the original version of various songs, as well as cover versions, and then you get to vote for the best version, either the original or one (or multiple) of the covers. You may also leave comments on the various songs, if you wish. I will add new songs every now and then, though feel free to vote for and/or comment on previous songs at your leisure. I will attempt to avoid using live versions, and I will only use recorded versions (so no YouTube-only covers or such, and nothing before recording was invented, which rules out quite a bit of really old music, but so be it). I will attempt to cover songs from many different genres of music. I've made a list of a variety of different potential songs to “cover” (pun intended, apologies), yet I'm sure there are plenty of songs that I've overlooked. If you have any suggestions, feel free to send me a private message and I'll consider it. Now, let's kick this off with the first song! What about “Land of Confusion” by the English rock band Genesis, originally released in 1986. Original, by Genesis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZujuYiweht8 AL1CE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGbDjdoWVoI Disturbed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOP6XN45OEk Hidden Citizens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je3w9o7SJZ4 In Flames: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaHsPJ9IlP8 Katzenjammer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lKDF5ti3DQ Let the voting (and commenting, and discussion) commence!
  5. Not made by me, but the views are so low and it sounds so great I must share guitar heaven! Dat drop doe.
  6. So...did something a little different. I took Babs Seed...and changed the key into a minor key and boy...did it have a major difference to the piece...I just hope no one feels like it's a funeral for Babs...enjoy
  7. Hey there! So tonight, I bring you another piano cover. This time it's Rainbow by Sia from the MLP Movie! This is my first ever full playthrough of the song and I didn't have any dry practice runs prior to this playthough! Quite the record, though I've heard the song a few times...anyways, hope you guys enjoy!
  8. Knowing how much I love Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (especially the soundtrack), I convicted myself to finish this organ cover of Trisha's Lullaby and it's now complete.I hope you enjoy it.
  9. Thought I'd make my own cover of Megalovania from Undertale, so I hope you enjoy it.
  10. So, this year, I've decided to take this Christmas Season and challenge myself to see how many Christmas Piano Covers I can finish and share with you guys! So...here are the first three! More will come soon! Tell me what you guys think! What's your favorite so far?
  11. Note: If this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it, as this is not pony related music. Hello bronies and pegasisters! As you can guess from my name, I love music. I wanted to post something musical on the forums, and I've been working on a cover of Believer, an amazing song by Imagine Dragons. Here's the original: Here's my cover: I am open to constructive criticism!!! Please, if you have any suggestions, tell me. This is a work in progress and I still have yet to sing the whole song. (I have no idea what's up with the text below this.)
  12. Hello everpony! Sometimes speeding up/down and doing other kinds of science on tracks brings interesting results. This time, I've reversed my cover and I liked what I heard immediately. That's why I've decided to recreate it by flipping the song upside down and remix it a little. It still may sound off and weird, but I tried to not modify it that much. The flipping process itself took maaaany hours, as I had to re-do the whole song after all. So... Basically it's a mess, that sounds like a reversed track, with some editing to make it less messy. With that being said, if you'll reverse this remix, you'll definitely recognize the original song. SCIENCE!
  13. NOTICE This thread contains spoilers from season 5. Hello everybody! I had making an 8-bit cover of "The Magic Inside" from S5E24: "The Mane Attraction" planned for a long time and finally I've decided to put my hoof on that. I'm really proud of it as initially I thought it will be a disaster, but thankfully it turned out to be not that bad. Yeah, I totally believe in myself. I hope it's likeable!
  14. Hello. This time I have a special thing. With a girl-friend, we have decided to make a french version of My Cadence by M.Mosier. I have made a new instrumental and I have tried to put some quality in it. It was not easy but I hope that the result will sound correct; So, here is the link : I hope you'll enjoy the sound even if it's not the same langage than the original . Have a good evening . Dam
  15. I actually finished this back in July, but because of mostly Sony, I only just got it actually "done". It's not studio quality, but it was my first animation, and by myself, so take that as you will, and enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt2PhhYZyug
  16. So...did this thing tonight... This is the first time I've ever shared a cover of a piece by TSO. Critique is wanted.
  17. LOL, I can't believe I forgot to share this here earlier when I made it. Welp, with Hearth's Warming Eve (a.k.a. the Holiday Season) coming along, I thought the timing to share this here would be good. SoundCloud: Pony.fm: https://pony.fm/tracks/23974-hearths-warming-eve-is-here-once-again-with-reprise-organ-cover YouTube:
  18. I forgot to post this here. This is an orchestral remix I've been working on for about a month now, off and on. https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/track/music-to-my-ears
  19. Hello everypony! /) I'm still toying with 8-Bit music and I think I'm slowly making some progress! :-P This time, I want to show you something, that I'm proud of, even though I know it's far away from being perfect. At least I've tried! Enjoy!
  20. (song starts at 0:22) It's funky and cool and 80's as heck and I love it. I feel like we need to make a cover of this. Whether it's just of brony celebs singing it with an animation, or a full-blown ponified remake, somebody needs to do something with this song. XD You guys think so too? :3
  21. Ermagherd! I did a new pony thing! All of the instruments are mine. Only the vocals are from the original song. Vocal Version https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/track/lunas-future Instrumental Version https://jdharding.bandcamp.com/track/lunas-future-instrumental
