The Cover Session #6

Listening to: 'Ain't No Rest for the Wicked' by Cage the Elephant [Cage the Elephant]

Back in February, there was a comment on one of my posts; a proposal of sorts. I wasn't sure if it was meant seriously or not, but I decided to assume that it was. If it wasn't...oops, too late! :P.

Anyway, six months and a few emails and mp3s later, here we are! Yes, PseudoRandom has actually recorded a duet with the mighty Darkside! It was his song choice, and considering how much of a Snow Patrol fan I am, I guess it's no surprise that I was more than willing. My contribution kinda took a back seat due to the PhD, moving house etc., but thankfully things settled down and I managed to find time. And I won't deny that I may have been a bit 'keen' to get this done before he becomes famous and all ;-).

I have to say I'm really proud of this; when I started this blog, I never imagined I'd be using it to showcase my own singing, let alone a duet with a blogger two continents away! As Shorty said,
Amazing thing
Profound, I know. Anyway, enough chat. Here it is: 'Set the Fire to the Third Bar' - originally by Snow Patrol featuring Martha Wainwright, from their album Eyes Open. Piano and male vocals by Gehan, female vocals by moi (duh). Enjoy!

If you want to listen to it offline, you can download it here. And for those of you who live to see Gehan's headless videos *cough*Jerry*cough*, there's a video version up on his blog :-).


  1. your vocals just owned Gehan :D

  2. hmmm the chorus sounded a little awkward, might have been better without the "now" in the first line
    the last chorus was awesome though!
    there's an annoying buzzing sound in it though :/

  3. lovely!! i like very much.


  4. Hoo hoo! :D
    LOVE your voice, child. AND I vote for individual clips of both the singings.

  5. one word: amazing.

  6. St. Fallen - I beg to differ :P Glad you like the last chorus :-) As for the buzzing sound, I'll look into it.

    Jerry - The ones you so lovingly begged Gehan to provide download links for :P

    V - Thank you! :-)

    Mak - Thank you! :-) Hmm I dunno how it'd sound apart...we'll see :-)

    Anon - Glad you like it :-)


Speak now, or forever hold your peace (well not really)!
