Could someone help me out with the lyrics to the chorus?

Currently, everything you love's buried

Even George Wallace would agree

Original..




Here's the Way Yes cover I did today. GREAT SONG! I enjoyed the hell out of this one, and I think it turned out pretty good.


Also, I listened to some Gaunt today, and there are a couple tunes that I would be interested in covering, but I'm gonna need some lyrical assistance.

Wow. This is some crazy shit.

You should cover "Could This Be Love" in honor of the upcoming 84Nash reunion.

You can thank me later, Wumme.

Some good ideas, dudes.

Here's one that I have been working on for a couple days.

The Town Monster song, "One Thousand Wolves".

Original...

http://soundcloud.com/the-town-monster/ ... d-wolves-1

Mine...


I think that it would be cool if some other folks got in on this. Make some covers, bitches.

these are pretty damn nice,


for real, let me be the 1st to suggest that the co-op promote a billy cool plays the local covers fundraiser:

my next challenges:
inner city native son - blueprint
smile - copywrite
still listening - mount carmel
I kissed her - Nick Tolford and Co
lydia - 2 cow garage
home sick home - wing and tusk
My head - times new viking
automatic teller - new bomb turks
garvin stomp - unholy 2
holmes the heat director - fierce lime and his ponytail assassins

Sounds great, but I need a band first. Who wants to be in Billy Cool's Local Cover Band?

like most things in life, I would go with the New Bomb Turks.

I always liked my covers to be the perfect mix of a classic song, but also playing the middle of too popular/too obscure. I think that a good cover is one where the listener recognizes the song

Grafton would be kewl as well

Hey y'all. My first post here- Billy, I know your material from Craigslist (which is, verily, full of assholes), and I think you played with my current band before I joined.

My only experience with local covers was an attempt at playing/singing TNV's "Move To California" on the Treehouse's upright piano one open mike night. It didn't elicit the raucous applause I hoped for but it was damn fun. I'm sure to try it again.

I'm 33. I don't know how old anyone else is on the message board, because I don't know any of them.

Roughly. So at what age should I just hang it up? I need some career guidance.

How often/when would you want to do this? It'd be fun to do as a special event, and it's been a while (as far as I know) since anyone's done it.

I don't have a plan for how often. If it's a nice product, maybe once a month, or so. If the group gels, maybe see where else it goes.
