Romey Neh Nay Nearthon




Here's another backwards song. This is the backwards version of one of my favorite songs on the album I'm posting, yesiree. I was all happy with the way this song and next week's song turned out.

Death Song Medley


I'm posting 4 days early because I'm not gonna be in a place that has internet later this week. I mainly recorded this song for shits and giggles, but you'll find out week-after-next that it actually does move the plot along. In this song, Mogie, Verdell, and Corky all decide to sing their death songs at the same time to see how they blend together.

The high pitched voice sings part of the song backwards because I found that it was getting too darn repetitive. That's why last week's backwards-song is partially in English.

 Here's last week's song if you play it backwards.

For anyone new to this blog, the album I'm discussing is based on the movie, Skins. (Spoiler Alert)... It follows this character, Corky Red Tail, into the afterlife cuz he gets murdered in the beginning of the movie. Then he's joined by Mogie and Verdell, who both die of alcoholism in one way or another. The three of them work together to try to get a message to Corky's mom that he's okay in the afterlife. The most likeliest candidate to do that is Rudy, Mogie's brother, because all three of them knew Rudy when they were alive, so they're all connected to him in one way or another.

Backwards Medley Thingy

This is the next backwards song on the album thingy I'm posting. It's got three different voices that sing different melodies together. When I finished, I wondered if it sounded a bit like Bach. But I dunno, man. I'm not as sophisticated as old J.S. Bach was. See, the picture is supposed to be Bach being not sure of what to think of this song. But I dunno if it looks very much like Bach.


In any event, the complexity of figuring out the backwards version of a song with 3 vocal melodies necessitated the use of a spread sheet. See?


This is my first spreadsheet-song.

Together



After Corky expresses discouragement about Verdell and Mogie being dead, because he wanted them go get the message to his mom that he's alright, Verdell and Mogie tell him that their being dead might be to Corky's advantage. If the three of them work together, they can communicate more effectively with the living. Like, you know, if they pool all of their voices together, it'll be louder than just one spirit shouting. They make plans to communicate with Mogie's brother, Rudy, and try to get him to get the message to Corky's mom.

Here's last week's song, but how it sounds if you turn it around backwards.

Trouble Singing Fearfat




This is the next backwards song. Geez, man, I'm barely keeping up with this cuz I recorded this one last week. Historically, in order to manage my anxiety, I'll have recorded songs, like, a month or so ahead of having to post them. Then I know I won't fall behind in my blogging-poops. But I've been lagging. 2018 is Lagging-Year.

In any event, some of the highlights of this song are things like "N(g)ivrifornia," "Dastifornia," and "Spastifornia." That's a special treat, if you're listening to this here song, while residing in California.

Why Did They

This is the song where Corky gets real sad because Verdell and Mogie are dead. I mean, they're both in Heaven with him, but he wanted them alive so they could get the message to his mom that he's alright. I like how this one turned out. 

Here's last week's song, when you turn it around backwards.

 I wanted to put this one on, as well. See, this is "Why Did They" turned around backwards using Audacity (a sound editing program). I wanted to include it because it's extra-special magical sounding. The one I recorded last week didn't have as much syncopation as this one.

Everyone Stop



 This is another one of those backwards songs. My impression, when listening to it, is that it sounds like it should be the song at the end of a movie. You know, those songs you hear when the closing credits are rolling? That's what this song sounds like to me. It's one of those sad songs; it's sad because you're saying goodbye to the movie you just watched.

The dudes in the picture are Timmy and Bobby. They show up in a couple graphic novels I wrote. There's also a whole series of Timmy and Bobby songs that I posted back in 2009.

Stop The Wind From Blowing Through (Mogie's Death Song)



In this song, Mogie has just died and when he gets to Heaven, he sees Verdell and Corky. He decides to sing his death song in order to announce his presence. The death song is actually the main theme from the album I did back in 2015 (geez, I need to post the rest of that thing, at some point).

If Fear Had Purple Neon Crosswark, Part 2




Here's the backwards version of next week's song. It revisits that theme about fear having purple neon crosswalks (but it's pronounced "crosswark"). I'm not sure if the 2 gentlemen in the picture are freaked out by Fear, or by the reminder to mail in their taxes.

Verdell's Rap



VERDLRAP
This is a song where Verdell is tellin' Corky that the dude he sees up ahead is his best friend, Mogie, which means that Mogie is dead, just like Verdell and Corky. This is from the early days of my experimenting with weird rap and stuff. Or would a regular person even classify this as rap? Listening to it just now, it made me think of something I might've recorded when I was a little kid.

Weird version of he's my bestest friend

New Year's Eve At The End Of The Week




This is a song of a dude rapping backwards. He's all excited cuz New Year's Eve is at the end of the week. When you hear next week's song, you'll see that when you turn this one around backwards, it's not about New Year's Eve at all.

My Bestest Friend



In this song, Verdell, in the spirit world, is talking to his bestest friend, Mogie, who's still alive. He is tryin' to tell Mogie to vandalize George Washington on Rushmore to make him look sad. Corky's there, too. They both try to get old Mogie on board with their plan.

I got the coyote sample from a recording my brother made.

 As usual, this is what last week's song sounds like when you turn it around backwards.
