Ok folks I have decided to put this thread up so all of you guys who are musically gifted can make a stab at an ELO classic. Please remember to be nice to all who participate here as it takes some guts to put your tones onto tape! I am intrigued to hear what you beautiful talented people can come up with and after hearing Helmuts version of "Summer and Lightning" it inspired me to have a go! I am not the most technically advanced individual "in fact I'm shocking" so my upload will probably take time! Anyway! Here is my version of Strange Magic!
Well said, jefflynnenut! Being so many people on the forum that claim to play instruments, I was expecting to unchain some kind of domino effect with my version of "Summer and Lightning", but nothing happened. I'm glad to know that finally someone felt encouraged to make a cover.
I will have a listen to your version of "Strange Magic"... when you actually post it.
PS: I will make a stab at "Can't get it out of my head"... or, more reallistically, stab it.
Shit, man, you are a pro! Congratulations! Fantastic cover all the way. Excellent vocals (didn't you say you weren't a good singer?). Makes me regret my decision of uploading that S&L version.
BTW, your recording equipment must be quite good, isn't it? It all sounds so clear...
Hey don't ever knock yourself! There are plent of horrible people around to do that for you! Your version of Summer is class! and hey that track was recorded on my phone hanging from the top of my upright piano! Bahahahaha!
Timeblue: Not one but TWO Bev vids! We are indeed honoured!

orioles70: working from home has it perks, I noticed the birds were unusually noisy and sure enough - there is a rather large owl sitting in the tree just outside my dining room. Can't tell if he's waiting for prey or taking a nap.

BSJ: Very cool. For us, normally when all goes still, it means a hawk is hanging around.

Timeblue: Woke up the other day to a pile of sparrow feathers (minus the body...) our local sparrowhawk must have been hungry.

eloneen: The young man hosted Taco Tuesday last night, and this is Mr.Eloneen's week to prepare dinner (YESS!!!). Recently, he has made homemade apple pie, meat pies (inspired by our recent trip to the UK), burgers, biscuits from scratch, and chicken and waffles.

eloneen: Recently, I've made a delicious lentil and potato salad, jambalaya, roast pork loin with roasted veggies, but Hubby's the rising star! My mother wants him to cook all the time now! He made a cake (from scratch) for me and my mom for Mother's Day.
