Open Mic Week 42 'Angeles' Elliott Smith Cover (Bathroom Sessions)

3년 전

I first heard this song on the film Good Will Hunting years ago, along with several other Elliott Smith songs on the soundtrack, but this one stood out to me so much.. To me this song speaks about the monster that is money, and the way the city swallows up and exploits people with the use of money. That's what it means to me but take a listen for yourself, if you haven't heard it before I suggest you check out the original, it's an amazing piece of music, and I couldn't even dream of doing it justice.

But I did try!..

If you have time please upvote my entry on the open mic page, scroll to the comments and you'll see me - thanks!

Nice music man!

Another one of the Bathroom sessions I see, I'm not familiar with that song but dang that's some flawless fingerpicking as far as I can tell. Also a great vocal. You never cease to amaze!

Fabulous man! Not familiar with the original at all, but then hey ho, who needs to be, with someone covering it as well as you obviously are. 👏👏👏😊

Thanks Geoff, I appreciate the kind words! The way Elliott Smith played it was really something though.. You should give it a listen. ;)

Absolutely love Elliott Smith, but can't listen for too long or it starts to get to me.

Great cover man.

Uh huh, uh huh, uh huuuuh.

·

Haha so do you mean it starts to get to you emotionally or is it just the whiny American twang?

·
·

Yeah, brings me down a bit - I suppose that's a sign of good songwriting though?

Lol, it took me a while to get over the whine but glad I managed to :)

You seriously have a gift omg! Your voice is soo unique & you have a different flow than most! I love how you labeled this Bathroom sessions hahaha :D
