NEW WAVE WEEK (Day 2): "Girlfriend in a Coma" by The Smiths - KMKanDrum Cover + Karaoke


From Nov 7 to 14, I will be releasing one song a day of my favorite New Wave tunes from the 80s. Now, in no way is this list complete. There are tons of songs I wanted to cover. So I kept them to ones I loved, that I could play drums to as well as sing somewhat well. There were bands like Siouxsie & The Banshees or The B-52s that I wanted to cover, as well as New Order, OMD, The Cars...I mean I can go on and on. But these are just a small sample of New Wave songs and bands that helped define my musical taste and style.

For Day 2, I decided to go with my favorite Smiths song, "Girlfriend in a Coma." The Smiths was my favorite band in the late 80s and early 90s and when Morrissey decided to go solo, he became my favorite artist for a while. I even tried to emulate his bouffant hairstyle. Oh to be young and dumb again!

I hope you enjoy this one, and I hope you come back tomorrow for Day 3.
