The Nightingale – Julee Cruise Cover

June 1st, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

When I was younger, Twin Peaks (the television series) really confused me, but something was deeply intriguing when it came to the scenes with Julee Cruise in them. My sister had the soundtrack to the series and so eventually when I was 10 or so we traded cassettes and I got it. I would mainly listen to “The Nightingale” on Side A and then switch over to Side B to listen to “Into the Night”. I also was listening to Debbie Gibson and Madonna and all of that crap at the time (except I really hated NKOTB thank you). I think we know what overall had a better influence on me.

Moral of the story? Maybe a soundtrack to a David Lynch production is good for children. Better then most of the stuff on the radio. Anyhow, this song I’ve always really liked. You can find more info on Julee at her Myspace page . And another newer musical project that she has worked with in recent years is Pluramon who are really good and you should check out if you haven’t heard of them yet.

He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss) – The Crystals Cover

May 22nd, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

This one goes out to Phil Spector. Here is my wall of hot mess sound. I originally was going to cover another Crystals tune, but then decided I’d do this one. When I was looking for lyrics I noticed that Hole and Grizzly Bear have covered this one too, which is cool. Here’s mine.

Bull In A China Shop

I started doing photo posts to accompany the song posts but it almost seems too boring, you know? Well pictures of me get rather boring. So the photos are staying, but they will be of animals. Yep, animals. I dont know why either.

Walking Away – The Egg Cover

April 10th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

I bought the album and the same night decided to do a cover. I guess the album had been out for years but boy have I really been bad at keeping up with new music in the past few years. Lack of money to go buy records has been the main culprit. I guess that’s what happens when you get older, money is spent on the ‘grown-up’ stuff (bills. Blah). But now I have to admit I’ve become obsessed with the Itunes store. If nothing else I can usually afford at least one song. :)

Anyway, I’m going to start adding links too in the posts, because I like the songs/bands I cover alot, of course. That is the main point of this whole thing. The Egg band .

Eleanor Rigby – the Beatles cover

March 11th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

I’m sure this has been covered tons of times, but I’ve never heard it covered so thought it would be fun to. I think I’ve been watching too much “Six Feet Under” lately.

If This Is Poetry….

March 11th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

…Then here is a poem. We are living for something, not for a sum. We get caught up in things we dont need, and then we are done.

I guess that’s not quite a poem.
