Re: Hot Violin Girls System of a Down Cover

I'm not a douche. You may disagree with me, it's just an opinion, and there's also the chance that I'm not wording myself right so I sound like a douche, but you'd have to know me to have a valid point in saying I'm a terrible person. Take it or leave it, it's the same. But I agree, this is a music ...

My dad got me into Sergio & Odair Assad's rendition of Piazzolla's music... pretty amazing stuff too.

And Anderson & Roe have an excellent two-piano version of Libertango.

I recently started a blog where I get a random word every day and use it for inspiration.

Re: Covers That Are Better Than The Originals

In my opinion, The Beatles music is great, but one of the interesting properties is that i's great in its simplicity, and thus covering the Beatles makes it (arguably) not-too-hard to make it better (unlike more complex anthems, which simply can't be covered). One good example is, of course, the mov...
