👽 I’ve been trying to upload a little more consistently. I originally did a vocal cover of The Chain to a piano track, but decided to teach myself to play an acoustic version on guitar (my keyboards too big for my studio and my skills are pretty rusty).
I absolutely love this song. I haven’t heard a version I dislike actually. My top two covers of it would definitely have to be the one by Three Days Grace and the one by Evanescence. The each created slightly different moods while still staying true to the original by Fleetwood Mac. Plus these were two of my favourite bands growing up!
One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
When she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"
When I was younger this was one of my favourite songs. I ended up recording it during a vocal warm up in my booth before an audition. I’m kind of glad I recorded this because I think this acoustic version of the original song gives it a totally different feel. I also just had fun singing a song I used to sing back when I was like 12 or 13…I feel a little old now but my middle school playlist seriously brings back memories haha (good and bad).
What’s a song you loved to listen to when you were younger?
