OK, this is getting ridiculous. This has been hanging over my head for months now and I am now making an executive decision as far as the GoM goes.
I am fluffy’s gifter. When I went through his list originally, the Katamari Damacy song became by far my favorite of the four, and it really wasn’t close. The other three, while I wouldn’t necessarily call them bad songs, did absolutely nothing for me. Just total nothingburgers. I didn’t like them enough to emulate them faithfully and I didn’t hate them enough to wanna completely wreck them into something else entirely. And I’m pretty heavily into video game music as it is, so the choice was obvious.
The more I listened to it, though, I began to wonder if I was in over my head. That song is composed and arranged fairly intricately, and eventually I gave up the thought of covering it because I believed it was simply beyond my capability to cover it. I just picked what I thought was the easiest of the remaining three and said OK, I’m gonna do that one instead. Well, we’ve seen what happened. I never went near it. The motivation to cover it simply wasn’t there. I don’t mean this to be an excuse, that’s just the way it was.
So I am relieving myself of the nothingburgers and will in fact attempt to cover the song from Katamari Damacy after all. It’s what I should have done right from the beginning. I like it the most, and I think I’d enjoy trying to cover it the most. Perhaps I could enlist the help of someone like Ranger Den to sing it, or maybe it’ll just be an instrumental. Hell, I’d let anyone join in if they wanted to help out. I may make a somewhat competent cover, or I may fail spectacularly. We’ll see. But I really feel like I need to at least try it. And stiffing is not (and was never) an option. No estimates as far when it’ll get done, but it’ll at least be done before the next GoM. It may be weeks, months, who knows. Again, I just feel like I need to do it, and this could be a great recording (relatively speaking) if I could somehow pull it off.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.
