A wise man recently told me, "Do what YouTube wants." (aka J-Gabz from Audio Epidemic)
I am listening. Hence, the Harry Styles drum cover.
He gave me a list of songs I should cover because they are trending on YouTube:
Master of Puppets / Metallica
Running Up That Hill / Kate Bush
ABCDEFU / By some annoying girl
Anything by Harry Styles
He said 1 & 2 have seen a huge resurgence because of the Netflix show, Stranger Things, which I cannot stand. I do like old Metallica and haven't ruled out doing this song yet. I also like the Kate Bush song. So in the near future, I may be covering both of them. I just have to get over the fact that their recent popularity is stemming from a coming-of-age, sci-fi, period piece that totally rips off the movie Super 8.
I couldn't watch song 3 for more than 30 seconds before my hand clicked the "X" button all on its own. What a horrible song. Like take all the worst girl-rock, complainers, and whiners, like Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift, and throw them into the garbage disposal and this is what you get. NEXT!
So, I settled on this song...well actually, this was the first and only Harry Styles song I listened to. It has a decent groove, it's straightforward and pretty easy, and it didn't annoy me.
I also applied an experiment to this cover: My theory is that today's music is so watered down and formulaic that I could probably listen to this song 2-3 times, rehearse it 1-2 times and be able to record a decent enough first take as a keeper. Experiment PROVEN.
