10.6 - Singles from Bowie, Sufjan Stevens and Trail of Dead!

 

It's been a while since I posted new tracks, but I've been working on lots of customs... this is just the beginning!

An update of one of my earlier songs, another brilliant song by Bowie, from his masterful "Low" album. This one has groovy bass, guitar lines all over the place, cool drums, and, well, a really easy keys part. Have fun!

From indie hero Sufjan Stevens, this is just the second Sufjan custom in the database.

 
"Chicago" is one of his greatest anthems, from his masterful Illinoise album, it's ultra catchy and really beautiful. It includes really cool keys part (piano, trumpet solos, strings) and it's brilliant for vocals. Rest of the instruments are fairly standard (guitar is pretty nightmarish at times), but it's a beautiful tune and one that was really missing from Rock Band IMO.

It's OKKKK I'm a saaaaaaaintttt I forgaaaveee your mistaaaakesss
 
Even if just to sing this one line, I knew this song had to be in rock band!
 
From the brilliant Trail of Dead and their 2002 masterpiece "Source Tags & Codes", this is a brilliant rocking song. Guitar and bass are fun but not too difficult with lines all around, drums will definitely test your endurance a bit (especially the chorus), and vocals will have you screaming that huge chorus. I'm a saaaaaaaainttttt!

 

 

I've also done drums for a custom by 'Soul Love' by David Bowie, a custom by MrPrezident - get it here.

 
Thanks doa for all preview videos!
 
Have fun, and stay tuned - more is coming very soon!

Great stuff, thanks for these.  I suggest trying out 'mellow' animations on songs like "Breaking Glass", they look a bit frantic in that preview.

Another brilliant tune by Suede. Guitar, bass and drums are absolutely brilliant on this one - guitar is just riffs all the way through, bass is ultra melodic. And singing that chorus is just huge! "You're taking me over...". And keys are, well, they're there for completion sake but I don't expect anyone to actually play them. But the rest just rocks.

A power pop masterpiece and one of the best songs in this genre, September Gurls is just poor fun.
Drums are full of fills and an absolute blast to play - one of my favorites. Guitar and bass are pretty and melodic. And those harmonies are gorgeous! Just a blast all around.

"Every night I tell myself, 'I am the cosmos,
I am the wind'.
But that don't get you back again".
 
Where do you even start with a song like this?
One of my favorite customs I've made and songs I've authored, "I Am the Cosmos" is a hugely emotional, devastating and purely beautiful masterpiece. Written by Big Star member Chris Bell, it's a devastating ballad of loss, one of the best songs of the 70's and one of the best I've heard, honestly.
 
It also works really well in Rock Band. Drums are full of fills, bass is melodic and fun, there's a nice guitar solo in the middle, and those harmonies are simply gorgeous. Also, watch out in the outro, for one of this song's hidden secret - a slight lyrics change near the end. Originally it's buried in the fade out, but here's the fade out is reversed and it's hard in it's full glory.

 

 

Thanks doa for all video previews!

 

Have fun! Even more coming soon!

Amazing song by one of the world's best current bands, The National.

 
From their 2017 album "Sleep Well Beast", this song quickly became one of their biggest hits, and even appeared on the FIFA 18 soundtrack. Like pretty much every National song = it has absolutely brilliant drums. But quite rarely for a National song, it includes a brilliant guitar solo (in fact I believe it's their first guitar solo ever).
 
A great song from a great band, and fun to play on all instruments.

Video Preview (note: it shows solo vocals and not harmonies, but the custom has harmonies. Also drums are outdated version and been changed a lot since).

 

The brilliant 1966 hit from the Easybeats, "Friday On My Mind" is a rock and roll classic. With a surprisingly complex chord progression, cool three-way harmonies and nice guitar lines all over, it's an absolutely brilliant song to play and sing!
 
Thanks doa for the preview videos! 


Have fun!

Come vote for who you wanna see next!

 

I'm wondering which packs I should start working on next, so I thought, why not ask the community?

Here's a poll with a few options I'm thinking about. Vote for who you would like to see most!

 

A few important notes:

 

-There's a few packs that are already in progress. They will be the next released, and they are not a part of this poll. This poll is about which ones to start from fresh - there will be at least 3 different releases before then.

 

-I want to hear your opinions and I will take it into consideration. However, I do not guarantee anything, and since I do it for my own enjoyment, I reserve the right to work on whatever I choose, regardless of the poll results.

So I'll take it into consideration but I will not decide solely based on it.

 

-A note about Leonard Cohen: he's a bit of an odd pick since he's usually a bad fit for Rock Band (guitar only songs/electronic background).

However, the Cohen songs considered are all live versions, mostly from 'Live in London' but also other recent live records. Those are all full band arrangements, include live instruments and will be varied and interesting to play.

 

Waiting for your responses! Feel free of course to reply here too.

*spies Costello and votes for him*

 

*knows full-well he still owes you that Talking Heads song*

 

*asks anyway*

 

Would you ever want to collaborate on Alison?

 

P.S. Pretend my non-forum-going band mate voted for Nick Cave.

Alison is already in the DB mate

 

We can discuss other Costello tunes maybe, but let's do the Talking Heads song first! And FJM possibly haha

Derp. Sorry! I don't know how I missed it... I'll blame the spelling ;)

 

And yes, I will get to Talking Heads because I really want to get that FJM song done. Motivation! But I have so many obligations to other authors. :( I may have spread myself a bit thin at the moment... but it will happen. It will happen.

Please note, I have Veronica on my "I'm working on it right now" WiP in case you hadn't checked in a while.

Thanks, I'm aware and I wasn't planning to do this song anyway. Waiting for the custom :)
