Steemit Open Mic week 72: Climbing to the Moon

in openmic •  2 years ago  (edited)

This is an old Eels song I really liked and decided to learn some years ago. I still perform it now and again. I think it suits my vocal range, but I have to find the right place to take a breath in the chorus.

Please support the Open Mic Contest (you can vote on my comment there too to help me out). Thanks to @luzcypher and @pfunk for making it possible. It's a big thing these days with hundreds of entries. Just watch out for people trying to pass off someone else's video as their own. That's why we have to say our name in the video now.

Steem on!

I'm Steve, the geeky guitarist.

I'll buy guitar picks for Steem Dollars

I love everything about the Eels; the music and the man.

He has a documentary called Parallel Words, Parallel Lives - if you haven't seen it, or heard of it already. It's a wonderful mix of his music, his own and and his family's life story.

It's always nice hearing covers of music I'm so fond of.

Sounds a bit your own, but if you've made it that, it probably means you like it as much as I do, and that's just cool.

I have seen that and I read his book too. He's had a lot of tragedy in his life

Great, I figured as much. He has, and I think it's given him a foundation for some really great lyrics. His music just draws you into this whole other world, not that it's necessarily otherwordly in some alien way, but that's it's just so much him, his own creation.

"Elizabeth On The Bathroom Floor", that's where you hear it, the bad stuff, the sad stuff; that whole album. But it's beautiful, and that's the fun thing about memories, we can kinda choose what to make of them. And he's talented enough that his angle is something to really admire, even if it is drawn from tragedy.
