I'm not a musical theatre guy as a rule, but Phantom is one show that I've always wanted to work on. And this version of the song is incredible.
From a production / sound company standpoint, I would LOVE to work with someone like her. Just amazing - original, talented, and a fantastic twist on a few different genres of performance (ballet, classical music, show tunes, dubstep).
From a "guy" standpoint....well...we won't go there in a public forum
Or the Time I got tired of the 19 year old son of my fiancee playing Nine Inch Nails over and over and over and.... I bet you can guess the song. I asked him to play something else... just for a change, and when I picked up a disc, he started going off on how they were the "original Death Metal band, man, the Original!" ( honestly don't remember the band ) I had to laugh, and went upstairs and brought him down my copy of Paranoid by Black Sabbath. He'd never heard it. I told him I was going to go upstairs and slap his Momma! ( No, I certainly did not. )
Here's one of the best covers from that album. Samantha Fish.
Lindsey does a good song with Lzzy, the Shatter Me link I had above.
I've got a couple live bands I work with who do some bad-ass War Pigs covers. Of course, the drummer takes longer to set up than ALL of the rest of the band. Or my PA. Combined. I've also got one group: four white guys - an IT programmer, an insurance agent, an undertaker, and an athletic coach - who knock out an awesome live rock version of Run-DMC's "It's Tricky". Talk about fun stuff to do in a bar full of hammered hillbillies!!
I need to get my ass in gear and put some of my live recordings up on my website...
Most of their stuff on youtube is before I started doing their front of house work, I need to get some of mine up on my website and get masters to the guys so they can post current stuff. Hell, we don't even have Mark (mohawk) on guitar anymore - he's been gone a little over a year now!
“Trent Reznor was born to write that song, but Johnny Cash was born to sing it, and Mark Romanek was born to film it.” Bono
I met Johnny Cash when I was a young kid. My adopted dad took me to one of his mom's practices and he was there. (his mom sang backup for many of the old country legends). I have been a big fan even before that.
Airbozo, thanks for that link.... Hearing that song over & over in those videos is haunting.
The director of Logan said the Trailer was a surprise to him... I thought the music made the last of the trilogy somehow more profound than a Superhero movie is supposed to be. Not a perfect film, not a cheerful romp, but the R rating, finally gave us the look at the moral and violence issues that come with Wolverine. After all, this is a guy who was made, deliberately, into a living weapon, and has knives that come out of his hands. Powerpuff Girls, this ain't.
I appreciate trailers that don't give too much away, and even are a little deceiving, I can't stand when a trailer makes me feel like I've seen all the good parts, so why bother going to see the movie? So If you're ready for tears again...
