Sonic Groove Live Week 3 Cover Seven Devils - Florence and the Machine

작년

A song by the wonderful Florence and the Machine!
I went to one of her concerts after the album Ceremonials was released and I absolutely adore it. I have fond memories of seeing her performing live on stage. This woman is such an inspiration to me.

Now for my video; as you may have noticed I recorded it with the karaoke app Smule.
This allows me to create a videoclip and gives me access to a wide variety of songs as well as mic effects. These are five full takes, which means I sat down and sang (parts of) the whole song five times to get the choir effect and of course the harmony. I could only redo these in their entirety so if I screwed up anywhere I had to start all over again. 😉

I hope you enjoy! 😃

Lyrics

Holy water cannot help you now
A thousand armies couldn't keep me out
I don't want your money
I don't want your crown
See I have to burn
Your kingdom down

Holy water cannot help you now
See I've come to burn your kingdom down
And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out
I'm gonna raise the stakes, I'm gonna smoke you out

Seven devils all around me
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done

And now all your lies will be exorcised
And we will find your sayings to be a paradox
And it's an even sum
It's a melody
It's a final cry
It's a symphony

Seven devils all around me
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
And I'll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done

They can keep me out
'Til I tear the walls
'Til I save your heart
And I take your soul
For what has been done
Can not be undone
In the evil heart
In the evil soul

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done

Omnomnom! 😃 I do love my cake! 😉

That was beautiful! Saludos!!

·

Thank you🙏💛😘

Welcome to SGL, what an awesome entry - good luck this week :D

·

Thanks so much!😃🙏💛🥰

weee!!! amazing performance and I loved how it all blended together... I'M TOTALLY LOVING THE NEW LILAC HAIR :)

I missed that powerhouse voice of yours

·

Thank you 😃🙏
I dyed my hair pink and purple and after a few weeks it turns this bright lavender/lilac. I'm very happy with it. 💛😘 I'm also very happy to be back here.

Oh my, I wouldn't dare to dye my hair, I've not even been to a hairdresser since I was 8 years old and my grandma sold my hair for a wig like in Little Women. I only tried to actually darken my hair from blonde to prerraphaelite red when I was a teenager and oh my it was a temporary one but still got blisters and have not messed since, I'm actually growing blonde to white grey all mixed at the moment. But I always long for the unicorn mermaid colours :) I use chalk and pastels sometimes as my hair is light, it lasts until next washbut it's not as pretty as that result

Oh nooo! That’s horrible. (Btw Little Women is one of my alltime favourites) But I understand that experience must have been a bad one.
These days though they have awesome stuff to protect your hair when they bleach it. I’ve not had any problems with blisters or hairloss. Maybe you should try fooddye. It will stay in your hair longer and its perfectly fine to use.😃

Looks like an interesting song, though I wasn't able to watch it - I guess it's region restricted or something. Thanks for sharing though.
I found you because @guifaquetti featured you in the Pay It Forward Curation Contest. Keep up the good work!

·

Hey there😃
Thanks for your reply.😃
The vid is put public on YouTube so it should be available to everyone. I’ve sent it to several people around the world and they can all see it.🤔


I hope you’re able to view it.🙂

It wouldn't play from this page, but I was finally able to type it into YouTube and it worked.
I like how you've done the multiple voices very professionally. Good job!

Is Smule something designed for absolute beginners to the recording world? I have sometimes wanted to dabble, but finding free-to-use software isn't easy. I'm not going to be shelling out until I know that I can do this - and have fun with it.

Thank you so much😃
Glad you finally got there in the end.😉
If you download the Smule app on your phone (it works with Android as well as IPhone) you’re all set to go. I do have to say the very best sound quality result (aside from a professional mic) is with the Apple EarPods.
You will get to start with a small selection of songs but there are plenty of people who open songs and keep silent so that anyone else who does not have a paid account can have a go at that song. I’d also be happy to connect with you on there and open up songs for you if you decide this is something for you.👍🏻

Hmmm, maybe when I get a smartphone. Thanks.
