GBGC Top 40 Countdown: T-10, Crazy. I think I'll survive.

Something crazy happened. I found four guitar picks - two of them were too hard, one of them was too soft and one of them is just right. My, my, how playing with the pick sonorous the bad guitar does make 
(in German that sentence makes perfect sense)! But in the lower range, my voice couldn't quite cut through, and I didn't want to sing this particular number an octave up. So, I kind of cheated on this "quickie" and laid over an extra vocal track and had some fun with it (the "quickies" are usually unedited rough cuts), hence what looks like bad lip-synching in the video. No Milli Vanilli silliness here - it's all 100% organic, believe me. One of my new YouTube subscribers (yes, you can subscribe to the channel, or follow me on this very site) asked if I used a "harmonizer" - I begged his pardon!

I can't believe I've actually been pulling this off for three weeks straight. I must be crazy. 'Nuff said.


  1. Crazy :-) Couldn't agree more. But hey, isn't it a definition of our life as opera singers that we, um, hear voices??

    Keep the faith. Final countdown has begun!

  2. but we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy... oh yes, wise advise :)

  3. and this one makes me think of Devil Wears Prada. for some reason i only have associations between songs and pop movies.
