I'll take you around the universe, and all the other places too!

A while back when I was cruising the internet I came across Amazing Horse, and thought it was pretty funny. A little bit later I learned that there's a longer, beter version on Youtube. While looking for the extended version I came across a cover done by a girl who had done a cover of she. Seeing the thumbnail I thought 'An attractive girl singing this song could be humerous/cool', so I clicked and watched it.



I'm no music critic, but I noticed she has a really nice singing voice, and is good with the guitar. Some of her facial expressions add to the humor of the song- to highlight one the first time she sings"eew, that's dirty" made me laugh. After I watched the one song I ended up going to her channel, and noticed she covers several songs. After watching a few covers I fell in love with her singing. You can tell that she really gets into performing. Some videos have cuts where she flubbed a line, or something else screwed up her recording (one video has 2 out-takes at the end, where she got interrupted by a drill, then a text-message). Once I read where it says she lives in Germany I couldn't really fault her making a mistake or two- singing is hard enough, but singing in a different language is that much more difficult.

I haven't been as fond of the video where she has other people performing with her- seems like while her co-stars would be good on their own, they just don't work together very well. Occasionally she'll use software to allow her to sing backup for herself. In my opinion the songs would sound a bit better without this. Despite this I often listen to the effected songs anyway. Further reading on her Youtube page reveals she's a tattoo artist, and has a web-page showcasing her tattoo work, along with other artwork she's done. I must say that I'm as impressed with her artwork as I am with her singing. Check her out and let me know what you think.

Somehow I wrote all of that without mentioning that her Youtube channel is rockabillie

  2. Yeah, singing in another language is especially difficult... Unless it's latin, in which case nobody knows how to sing it anyway so you can just butcher it all you want :D

  8. Cover is good, but I'm not huge on her voice.
    Though it's not bad, especially since English is not her first language.
