Steemit Open Mic Week 88 Cover Elastic Heart - Sia

in #openmic2 years ago (edited)

So here it is...

I may have mentioned in my introduction that I love coffee but what I love even more is to sing! 😆

This is also why you may notice that in the bottom, right corner, of the video, it says 'Smule'. This fun karaoke app allows me to easily record video's while singing to music/covers as I am unable to play the guitar or piano. (I have a brand new Fender that has been collecting dust for almost a year now... waiting for me to learn how to play it.) 🙄
Life has a habit of getting in the way sometimes but I am happy to share this song with you and I hope you enjoy.

Also, if anyone wants to; I've been known to take requests. 😉


And another one bites the dust
But why can I not conquer love?
And I might've got to be with one
Why not fight this war without weapons?
And I want it and I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
And let's be clear, I trust no one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

Well I've got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard
Yeah I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
'Cause I've got an elastic heart
I've got an elastic heart
Yeah, I've got an elastic heart

And I will stay up through the night
Let's be clear, I won't close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I walked through fire to save my life
And I want it, I want my life so bad
And I'm doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust
It's hard to lose a chosen one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

Well I've got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard
Yeah I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
'Cause I've got an elastic heart

Wow! I’m just blown away by all the lovely responses.
Thanks so much for your support.🙏😃

Wow, what a voice. Just so you know, to play Open Mic we need a musical instrument in your performance. Although there are exceptions. Your voice is definitely an instrument. Since you sang so well I think you're one of those exceptions.

Here are the rules. You can also find them in the contest post

@luzcypher Thank you for making an exception.🙏 I was a bit unsure about that rule since I saw some earlier postings of people doing the same.
In future I’ll try to lure some of my guitar playing friends to come record with me and perhaps teach me to play some guitar as well.😉

Great job. That is my favorite Sia song and you definitely did it justice!

Gefeliciteerd met je Curie upvote.

Voor je gitaar zou ik de Yousician app eens installeren.

Vergeet ik helemaal te melden dat je geweldig zingt :)

Awwww @ijmmai, wat lief! Dankje.🙏
Ik heb de app gedownload en als ik vanavond een rustig moment heb dan ga ik er mee aan de slag. Super bedankt voor de tip!🙏

Just wanted to say, What a voice...
Needed capitals. Congrats

Thank you @yidneth 😃🙏
I just took a listen to your Ghost Lullaby and your voice is amazing.🌸🌼💛

Thank you, I have less depressing tunes haha but I have a fascination for the spectral lol. Lots of luck at open mic. It has been a few weeks I have not entered but hopefully soon, it is alwaysa great way to network or discover fellow musicians. Have fun and luck ! Powerful voice there girl!!!

I've been listening to some more of your work and it truly is beautiful and magical. I really think you're not only very talented and kind but an allround amazing person. 😊

Aww that is sweet... Really appreciated. And I just read you had ratties, wee...! 🐭🐀

I'm stunned... really I am.
Gonna keep grinning like an idiot for an entire week now... 😁

Hahaha! I was grinning listening to you sing.

wow wow Jeetje mina, ik zit in een automatische trail om jou te upvoten door all dutch, maar wat ben ik blij dat ik dat gedaan heb! Schitterend!

Dankjewel @janine-ariane 😃🙏😊

Just came across this today . . . lovely rendition.

You have a lovely voice, and you emote well, which don't always go hand in hand. Beautifully done.

Thank you. 😃
Awesome feedback.😊

You're welcome!
I'm a singer too, and daughter of a jazz pianist and a classical pianist, so I've listened to a LOT of up and coming singers, and your rendition was great.

Wow, my mom could play the piano but sometimes I wish I would have grown up where people actively engaged with musical instruments... I'm learning how to play the guitar now because the only thing I know how to play is the flute.... can't very well sing along to that since they both take up breath. 😂
But thank you so much for leaving me this beautiful compliment, it means a lot.🙏

You're very welcome, @p4ragon.
Singing, like writing, is often a solitary pursuit, and it can be easy to get discouraged. Just know, from one singer to another, that your talent is real, and you have a LOT to offer others. Blessings to you. ;-)
