First YouTube Cover

Submitted by Madeline on Tue, 10/15/2013 - 15:31

Allright, all you people dying to know what I look and/or sound like. :D ha. Here's my first cover. I did "White Horse" by Taylor Swift.

Not the BEST video of me, though. :P My hair is in a state of disarray, I look tired...haha. Usually my hair looks better, promise! LOL!

Not my best singing either, but I wanted to post something. If you like it, please subscribe, and I'll be posting more covers soon!

Aw, good job! I love that song. I used to have the EXACT same hair cut as you.
Lol. I agree with Lucy Anne--you have such pretty eyes!

Homey - you got published anonymous! I didn't know anonymous comments were published!! Oh, that's nice to know...since one of my friends tried to comment anonymously about a year ago on something, and it never did.

Oh, gosh. Thank you. That is so sweet I can't even believe it! Thank you!

And Lucy--HAHA! I know, it's hilarious. I got an alert from AP that "anonymous" had commented and I was like..."...Wha...?"

Loved it! I think you should totally do an Almost Lover cover next!

Haha, yes I was DYING to know what you looked like. :P I was a bit disappointed you didn't look like, kidding. Nice voice! Looking forward to seeing more of your singing! (Pretty blue eyes!)

Hey guys! When I post new covers I'm going to put them here, instead of creating new, annoying, alarming-amounts-of-poetry-esque essays. :)

I covered "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus. There's also a performance of it on my channel, but I like this version better. :) Thanks for watching! Like and subscribe?

I feel a bit out of place here, but I thought I'd say I watched the video, and you have a good voice, although I can't help but sort of feel it's wasted on pop songs. Also, have you considered using prerecorded instrumentation? Not to insult your playing, but I especially noticed it on Wrecking Ball--the original song was actually decent enough to make me ashamed (because listening to Miley Cyrus simply isn't done among teenage guys, let alone liking it), and a big part of that was the dubsteppy instrumentation.

Oh, thank you! Haha--no, I appreciate every comment! What I really like to do is take some pop songs and slow them down, give them a different interpretation, or just do some of my favorites (which, I admit some to be pop). I also have some originals, but don't want to post those just yet. :)

I really love playing accompaniment so I almost hate to sing to a pre-recorded track so that's the reason I don't do that. :) I always sang to playing when I was younger until I learned chords a couple years ago and ever since then I've been playing for myself. The keyboard I use does have different sound/layering options but it's so hard to use! LOL! I need to watch a tutorial.

Don't worry--listening to Miley Cyrus isn't done among us sane girls, either! Not as of late, anyway. But I admit to liking that song. :P

Thank you for commenting! :)))

First thing I noticed was "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH YOUR DINING ROOM?" LOL, I cannot wait to see you, and your house? LOL! I like it, but it was weird to see a couch in the middle of the dining room (Loved the presence of your beautiful kitty in the background :D)
Second thing I noticed was the lyrics! I've never really listened to Wrecking Ball. Now a days if I hear Miley's voice on the radio I automatically skip channels... so.... But I like the lyrics, and the tune.
Third thing I noticed was your voice (I know this should have been the first, sorry, but honestly it was third). Your voice is gorgeous, I knew that from the start. But when you went into the bridge into those high, loud notes, you blew me away! Wonderful! You held them really well, they sounded amazing! YOU sounded amazing! There was one part where I think you had to switch melodies or something and the song stopped for a minute, which was a bit weird, but other than that. WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL!

This time it's 'Royals' (Lorde) in the style of 'Cups' (Anna Kendrick). :) Vocal isn't my best, but it was fun! haha :D

If you watch and thumbs-up, that would be awesome! What do you think? Thank you all -


P.S. Also, sorry for screwing up the word 'performed'. *sigh*

I know this is random, but someone should do a movie/book review of the titles "Catching Fire" and "Divergent". Seriously.
