IN THE AIR TONIGHT Has Been Monkeyfied

Making Music In The Twenties Of The 21st Century

  Episode #17  

I think I first heard IN THE AIR TONIGHT on my MIAMI VICE soundtrack record when I was a child. Great!
My idea was to give the song a blues feel, kind of a gritty gospel blues.
This worked well. My cover version has blues harmonies, a triplet rhythm and a slower tempo. Otherwise, I pretty much stuck to the original, including the addition of 80s robot vocals. Along with the eerie organ, bottleneck guitar and fragile lead vocals, it's a pretty surreal mix.

But listen for yourself...

You can  DOWNLOAD the song  directly from the creator for your own music collection. Awesome!


So, here we are. My Music Weblog will now have an additional Video Podcast on The MONKEY CHANNEL on YouTube.
Well, I was enthusiastic about film and television from an early age, so I always wanted my own TV show ( A very strange one, of course.) and YouTube is the only place where they let me do it.

What’s it all about?

Aha, I’m glad you ask. Well, it’s basically said in the subtitle:

Making Music In The Twenties Of The 21st Century

Or to put it even more precisely:
It’s all about shameless self-expression. Ha!
… and a lot of music of course.

But I think I can rule out some things. It won’t be about any tech stuff for musicians. You know, so popular videos about How To Do This or That With ProTools or whatever. Read the god damn manual, Jesus!

So, that’s it for this time.

Ev’rybody, have a good time!
