Andy Lim Trio – Killing in the Name of (RATM cover)

#041 – ’17 week 19

Here is an example about whatever a song is good enough so that it becomes a standard song and could inspire some others about making covers in their own genres.

On the other hand, jazz music is able to play a wide range of songs in its own way.

So enjoy this track, it could lead you to many other songs, bands or flavours!


Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird

#026– ’17 week 04

One of the greatest hit in many charts, this song also has some uses in movies in different medias.

By the way, from this band, Sweet Home Alabama is still more famous. But Free Bird is somehow the really soul of what could be Lynyrd Skynyrd and some kind of rock during ’70: it has few chords, no fancy or tricky structure or special effects. Only one rock song with guitars, distortion, great lyrics and vocals!

Enjoy extended live version as well!

Prophets of Rage

#008 – ’16 week 38

Hmm, easy this week since the name of the band (and the song) gives you a clue: Rage against the Machine’s son is awoken!
Ok the band was long-awaited and the first song has no surprise but I sure like it since I do like the original band. A lot!

So for me, this song works well and new singers do the job.

On the other hand, they (singers) don’t use to sing too fast and you could find shows where they slow down the tempo (original RATM’s songs for instance).
To “correct” it, Youtube could play it at higher rate (1.25 works fine)
