Teague, there's times you're allowed to hang those lights up on your house and this isn't one of those times.

Never heard the song before this, so I've recorded myself playing along with the vocal line just to try and get to grips with it. I thought I may as well share it. It's not perfect by any means, but I think this is the approach I'm gonna take for the actual thing.

Still Alive Demo Thingy

In terms of vocals, I think it'd be cool if we had a few of us doing the lines back and forth. Also, I gotta do the cake lines 'cos singing about food is kinda my thing right now.

I, conversely, know the song absurdly well and can tell that Teague cut out some time in between verses, the instruments go for a bit longer than that tongue

Absolutely looking forward to doing this. Friday is probably the next day I can reasonably record something but I'm psyched.

I don't do much in the way of instruments - nothing at all really - but if I'm feeling ambitious I may record an a capella track or two as well for the backing music.

I agree with both of these.

If the wife and I can shake the sore throat, I will try and convince her to sing. I cannot sing...

This sounds like fun!
If I post this I'll feel obligated to follow through.  tongue

I play acoustic guitar and like finger-style...we'll see what I can come up with. If I can manage to sing on key, I'll send some vocals too.

Absurdly fitting song. Plenty of room for creativity, too.

We need to bring back Holden "fezes are cool" Hill for this.

Re: Community Project: "Still Alive" Music Video

I was actually planning on recording the end credits in 1080p and having them play on the TV behind me as I listen through headphones... so I'm singing synced up to that. I can provide that recording for someone to edit if they wish.

(Of course it may exist online by now... back when it came out the best I could find was a standard def version.)

Re: Community Project: "Still Alive" Music Video

I'm pretty sure if you sing along to the original version of the song, and not the above MP3 of me being an idiot, your takes won't be usable because they won't sync up.

Having the credits going on in the background as a visual sounds cool, though.

Re: Community Project: "Still Alive" Music Video

Aside from the bars cut out between verses, actually, I think the sync will be pretty spot-on. I'll do a light edit to that video so it still syncs up behind me tongue

Is the original at 120bpm?

Re: Community Project: "Still Alive" Music Video

Sure is. (At least the in-game, GLaDOS version is, dunno about Coulton's.) I was listening to a nice duet as I was assembling this.

Re: Community Project: "Still Alive" Music Video

Some sites notes it at 118bpm, but 120 seems pretty spot on, yeah.

Was gonna do some recording today, but it'll be hard when the kid's not in kindergarden.

Did the recording. Audio/Video separately recorded, matched, merged. You'll have a video with pretty good audio quality baked in. Let me know if you want a flatter audio.

Re: Community Project: "Still Alive" Music Video

Seeing as we're doing a song from Portal, I thought I may as well play the damn thing.

I don't regret it, that was awesome.
