I'd like some opinions

Recommended Posts

I am working with some kid's right now, I kind of recruited some kid's from the local seen, and got them together to see what it would sound like, of course I did all of this after discovering a singer that blew my fucking mind, he's fucking 18 years old, and he was singing in kind of a blues based band, but I heard him on one of their songs, and this dude isn't meant to sing blues, this dude is born to sing melodic rock,  and it took me a minute to convince him to just come give it a try, so yesterday I got these guys together, only 2 of them knew each other, the rest are complete strangers, but they started jamming and all I could do was just sit and think what did I do? it cant be this easy, but we decided to cover a song, and they told me to pick the song, my mind was blank, this isn't something Ive ever even thought about, and im not generally a fan of covers, but I got home last night, and just hit shuffle on my laptop, just to see if anything stuck out as something I could give them, maybe a song that doesn't rock, but you hear that if performed right, could easily rock, then the Del Shannon song Runaway came on, and I thought, this is it, a good band could kill this song, it would absolutely rock, I meet with them Tuesday, what do you guys think of this, and do you have any suggestions if not this? please only 1 suggestion if you have one, im not trying to get so rattled I become overwhelmed, I'll hurry and find the link to this song, though im sure everyone of you know it, just in case, thanks metal brethren.

Firstly, should the authorities be notified about this?

Secondly, the original Runaway is one of my all time favourite tracks. This is a great cover I think you'll appreciate. 

As for suggestions, I'll have to think about it.

I think it's a good song to cover.
Easy just to update and rock up a bit.
But I'd go further and change the tempo a little, with a significant heavy drum as the stand out sound, a constant flowing picking guitar throughout and some vocal harmonies on the chorus. Maybe gang type vocals.

Yes. Definitely.

    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
