Watch this. And listen to his voice. And listen to his lyrics.
A beautiful song. I think it takes him about 10 seconds to get into a pitch/rhythm I like, but those lyrics make it up for all.
Make a mess when you’re depressed
Wake without a drop of rest
Ace a test and wipe your brow
Pay your credit card somehow
Ah… Reminds me of Rose. And WO. And Ryan. And Luke. (And all of our mothers!) Damn. Clickity-click.
Some of his other pieces, alas… Not so easy on the ears. That kind of voice is hard to fit into all songs, although I admire his experimentation (and the bravery to put those on the netnet). His lyrics are pretty consistently hot, though.
Others songs of his displaying some amazing talent:
- “Chocolate Rain“: his most famous so far, and I love the lines about [tag]The Bell Curve[/tag]. Sing it, brah!
- “Demons on the Dance Floor“: this song reminds me of a certain friend of mine… Yes, Mama Dre, you know who you are. (The remix is pretty hot, too.)
- “Canon in Z“: Yes, it’s [tag]Pachelbel[/tag]’s, but he tears that mutha up. And provides the sheet music. (Oh, no lyrics.)
For the musicky types, a question: how would you classify his voice? Baritone? Bass?
