BEARD. SEND ME THIS ONE TOO. OH MY GOD YOU ARE ON FIRE TONIGHT. It even has proper harmonies to chart! :D


[Edit/Update] The deed is done. Vocals have been reworked. Here are the notes:


Ungrateful Dead's original vocal track was based on a MIDI, which, as expected, was a bit too mathematical for a normal human to sing. I've reworked it completely, truncating and re-positioning vocal tubes and fixing lyric hyphenation. It's much more accurate, precise, and singable now. More importantly, there is now a harmony track! And it's freaking awesome.


I should point out one major difference from Ungrateful Dead's original "vision" for this song: how talkies were used. Strangely, there were a bunch of talkies... and there still are... but I switched where they were for a lot of the "weird" parts of the song. I also split those talkies between melody and harmony for some neat back-and-forth. I'm not sure how this'll be received, but I tried to make it as fair and fun as possible. Constructive criticism is welcome.


BTW, I don't consider this song "finished." It would be great to get pro keys added, since the keys are the stand-out instrument. I mean, beyond Jack White's WTF-is-happening guitar playing... which, sadly, isn't charted! And god, if it were... ouch.

Such a tight track.
