Weekly Acoustic Podcast Episode 8 – “Careless Whisper”

March 5th, 2010

This week I chose to do “Careless Whisper” — a great song originally by George Michael that Seether was able to completely take to the next level.  I sing this with Town Crier, so it was a natural choice.

Periodical acoustic podcast: “Careless Whisper” by George Michael/Seether

November 19th, 2009

Again, this time of year with the holidays, I really only had time to record one song this week, even though I keep saying I plan to do two!

I actually recorded this podcast as well as next week’s two days ago.

At any rate, the song for this week is “Careless Whisper” by George Michael/Seether.  My version is much closer to that of Seether, and, frankly, I don’t really do it justice, but I’m singing it in Town Crier, so I thought I’d offer the preview.

As usual: me on my acoustic, in my studio, no editing, recorded on Sony ICD-SX700, blah, blah, blah …
