Letting sleeping dogs lie

©2022 Michael Raven

After careful consideration and moments of deep thought, I suddenly have the urge to do a gothic-styled cover of “For Your Eyes Only”, originally performed by Sheena Easton.

You should be thankful that I have zero singing skills and such an atrocity will likely never see the light of day.

But… If I could sing…

    1. LOL. I so wish I had his baritone because I’d be all over that shit.

      I’ve got other musical commitments that I’m procrastinating on because I needed a hefty break… More engineering than music… But maybe when I get done with that… 🤔

  1. Hmmm, didn’t know you were an engineer, wow, man! You should probably put head down and bull through the required elements then take a well-deserved break. I know all about burnout. Write some stuff in solitude, recharge, get together with some friends, drink if you’re so inclined…decompress, bro.

    1. Amateur engineer. Always got stuck behind the board back in the 4-track era with the commandment being “make it sound good”. 4-tracks isn’t much to work with, so we got creative and still had a single track recorded for most instruments with a little bit of ping ponging.

      Much much easier with a DAW and basically unlimited tracks. But now I have to figure out all the stuff I couldn’t afford back in the day (e.g. compression).

      Fun stuff, but I end up listening to the same 15 seconds a hundred times or more before I’m okay with a sound. I’m picky.
