about

For November, I'm working on a cover a day for every year I've been alive, starting with 1993 and working my way to 2016. These are songs and bands that, for the most part, have meant a lot to me and have shaped me as a musician. It's also just a fun way of getting some music out there since it has been a while since I've released any of my own recordings.

Track Name: 2016. I Can't Give Everything Away (David Bowie)
I know something is very wrong
The pulse returns for prodigal sons
The blackout's hearts with flowered news
With skull designs upon my shoes

I can't give everything
I can't give everything
Away
I can't give everything
Away

Seeing more and feeling less
Saying no but meaning yes
This is all I ever meant
That's the message that I sent

I can't give everything
I can't give everything
Away
I can't give everything
Away

I can't give everything
I can't give everything
Away
I can't give everything
Away

I know something is very wrong
The pulse returns for prodigal sons
The blackout's hearts with flowered news
With skull designs upon my shoes

I can't give everything
I can't give everything
Away
I can't give everything
Away
Track Name: 2015. All The Boys (PWR BTTM)
[Chorus]
All the boys say
They don't love me
All the boys say
They don't love me at all
All the boys say
They don't love me but
I know they're lying

All the boys say
They don't want to hug me
All the boys say
They don't want to hug me at all
All the boys say
They don't want to hug me
But I know they're lying

Bitch I might be
Bitch I might be
Bitch I might be
But I know they're lying

[Chorus]

All the boys say
They don't love me
All the boys say
They don't love me
All the boys say
They don't love me but
I know they're lying
Track Name: 2014. White Sheet (Bellows)
all your friends will say
that you are the biggest faker
when you decide to say
that you are a life taker

what do you hear when the phone rings?
A white sheet on old things
and we all sing -
I won't shake your hand, I don't wanna be an earth-quaker
I won't shake your hand, I don't wanna be a heart-breaker
ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah ah

Wait! I think someone's at the door...
I know it's not your mother
Wide old world in store
But it's just for someone other

what do you hear when the phone rings?
a new ghost for bad dreams
and we all sing -
I won't shake your hand, I don't wanna be a god-fearer
I won't shake your hand, I don't ever wanna get nearer
ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah. ah ah ah ah ah ah

I used to love to feel this way
final breath breathing
I used to love to feel this way
final hurt coming

ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah. ah ah ah ah ah ah
Track Name: 2013. Bloodlines (Tunng)
This turbine’s twisting back to her
see ripples like thin skin surf
golden beauty of shadow clouds
purest desert for our lost souls

warmly kissed on the hand and the cheek
she walked along the line unravelled at the seams
unkind, even love will bring you down
turbines spinning back around

Earth ripping under your skin
golden beauty of shadowless sins
twenty four carrot blue
and me, my bloodlines revolving through you

Tender billowing through his shell
two extremes together
brings a life they’ll never tell

There’s no way of knowing how
turning tables engines down
start again system in phase
your thin blue lines are written again
Track Name: 2012. Impregnable Question (Dirty Projectors)
If there is ever the impregnable question
Of why what did or didn't pass
It would help to seek
Comfort in destiny
But I really don't
We don't see eye to eye
But I need you
And you're always on my mind

Whether there is or isn't any position
You care if I take or I don't
I will always hope
What we shared so long
To be the only love
And though we don't see eye to eye
I need you
And you're always on my mind

Through time and through many a situation
We both look forward side-by-side
We have shared it all
We have both stood tall
What is mine is yours, in happiness and in strife
You're my love
And I want you in my life
Track Name: 2011. Bridges Burning (Wild Child)
Wait for me
I need you to wait for me
I need you to wait
I know the bridge is burning fast

Baby please
I need you to wait for me
I want you to wait I know the bridge is burning fast

I know it's been too long
The same old song for you to hear
I don't want to say goodbye
Know I've been gone when you needed me here
Just thinking about the past
Thought it would last
Thought you'd be there in the end
Know I've done wrong

Know I've been bad
Just hoping all I put you through I'll mend

Wait for me
I need you to wait for me
I need you to wait
I know the bridge is burning fast

Baby please
I need you to wait for me
I want you to wait for me I know the bridge is burning fast

Just maybe
It'll be alright
I'll learn my lessons and you'll be back by my side
Until then
Don't think I'm gone
No matter how many hearts I break I'm alone

Wait for me
I need you to wait for me
I need you to wait
I know the bridge is burning fast

Baby please
I need you to wait for me
I want you to wait for me I know the bridge is burning fast
Track Name: 2010. I Think Ur a Contra (Vampire Weekend)
I had a feeling once
That you and I
Could tell each other everything
For two months

But even with an oath
With truth on our side
When you turn away from me
It's not right

I think you're a Contra
I think you're a Contra
I think you're a Contra
I think you're a Contra

My revolution thoughts
Your little arrows of desire
I want to trace them to the source
And the wire

But it's not useful now
Since we've both made up our minds
You're going to watch out for yourself
And so will I

I think you're a Contra
And I think that you've lied
Don't call me a Contra
Til you've tried

You wanted good schools
And friends with pools
You're not a Contra

You wanted Rock and Roll
Complete control
Well, I don't know

Never pick sides
Never choose between two
But I just wanted you
I just wanted you

You said, "Never pick sides
Never choose between two"
But I just wanted you
I just wanted you

I think you're a Contra
And I think that you've lied
Don't call me a Contra
Til you've tried
Track Name: 2009. Fasateen (Mashrou3 Leila)
بتتذكري لما قلتيلي
انك راح تتزوجني
بلا فلوس وبلا بيت
بتتذكري كنتي تحبيني
مع انني مش دخله دينك
بتتزكري كيف كنا هيك
بتتزكري لما امك
شفتني نايم بتختك
قالتلي انسى عنك
و اتفقنا نضلنا هيك
بلا أدوار و طنطنات
بلا كرفات و صبحيات

بلا ملايين
بلا فساتين

مسكتيلي ايدي و وعدتيني بشي ثورة
كيف نسيتي كيف نسيتيني
ومشطيلي شعري
وبعتيني عالدوام
كيف بتمشط مشطيني

بتتذكري لما قلتيلي انك نوي تتركيني
بلا فلوس و بلا بيت
Track Name: 2008. Equinox (The Maple Faust)
every week i find a new doodad that was sittin underneath my couch since last summer
but it's broken cause it got crushed by all the spare change that had filtered under
but it's ok, cause i know that you like all kinds of broken gizmos
so i put it in a box and i gave to you, hope you like it

walking down the road and watchin all the leaves that are fallin from the trees and hoping they're ok
cause winter can be long and winter can be cold and i know that most trees are really old
but it's ok ca use i know that you like the air and you like the snow, so
my apologies trees, but winter can come when it pleases

talked to a willow and a larch and a firn and i asked them what is new brothers
oh brother, not much new today, but apparently we are not here to stay
but it's ok, cause i know that there will be more trees to grow
and i think we will be fine for a few more decades

talked to a maple and a birch and an oak and i asked them brothers is this some sick joke?
it appears that no one will talk to me, they said oh brother there is always we
and it's ok, cause you know that we will always be here for you
that's true, i thank mother earth and her sister nature

there's ozone in the air, it's gonna rain but who cares
the moon just broke her stride, but she stopped to smile
there's ozone in the air, the fireflies wait and stare
i catch one in my palm, he kisses me, and then is gone

guess what's comin, it's the equinox when the sun is yielding its grip upon the earth
and its like a big battle for night and day when both sides are fighting for all they're worth
but it's ok, cause i know, that this happens twice every single year
but i guess that doesn't keep it from being your single greatest fear

i'm all fed up with the same old people givin same old orders bout what we're not to do
but you didn't hear me say to go away because the rhythms were killing me
but it's ok, cause i know that you were just being a really big jerk
but when you're down and out we'll try our hardest not to smirk

(ozone) there's ozone in the air, (raincloud) it's gonna rain but who cares
(moonchild) the moon just broke her stride, (bigsmile) but she stopped to smile
(ozone) there's ozone in the air, (fireflies) the fireflies wait and stare
(catch one) i catch one in my palm, (kiss me) he kisses me, and then is gone

walking down the road and watchin all the leaves that are fallin from the trees and hoping they're ok
cause winter can be long and winter can be cold and i know that most trees are really old
but it's ok cause i know that you like the air and you like the snow, so
my apologies trees, but winter can come when it pleases

there's ozone in the air, it's gonna rain but who cares
the moon just broke her stride, but she stopped to smile
there's ozone in the air, the fireflies wait and stare
i catch one in my palm, he kisses me, and then is gone
Track Name: 2007. In the Mausoleum (Beirut)
Time travels to know
Your secret life
In your mausoleum

And Berlin is
So ugly in the morning light
But with them, I could never feel so right
Track Name: 2006. Crazy (Gnarls Barkley)
I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place.
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space

And when you're out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly [radio version]
probably [album version]

And I hope that you are having the time of your life
But think twice, that's my only advice

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control

Well, I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
Just like me

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them
Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy
Probably
Track Name: 2005. Gemini (Birthday Song) (Why?)
It starts with you
on a mattress in your parents' old room,
clipping your toenails into the room
like the room will fade
and you will move
onto other rooms
and you will go
to other places.
Then the wedding,
Then the woman passed out
in the driver's seat
at the order board at White Castle.
We woke her up and she went
'round to the pick up window
like she knew exactly where she was.
Then I wept
with my face in your night shirt,
trying hard as hell to say
"until death separates us,"
loosening the skin on your breastbone,
I painted your nails
and you sleep
while I write all this down.

There was a moth caught in the soapdish
laminated in lye
Will you still remember me well
If I don't get to two-o-o-five?
my dead line Gemini

When we're on different sides of the globe
I thought we'd keep our veins tangled
like a pair of mic cables,
And if there ain't enough slack to reach
that we'd solder them together
and across oceans they'd stretch.
Our faces reflected in separate windshields
and all our body hair pricked up
an elephant eyelash.
Should we be tempted by thief or saint
it seems I leave and you stay
to crawl the cage and curse.
But don't regret the done dirt,
there is no life plan set,
you just swallow the cold
and follow your breath until death.
Now even if the will to sleep persists
I can't 'cause a harsh cloth, it grazes my blisters.

There was a moth caught in the soapdish
laminated in lye
Will you still remember me well
If I don't get to two-o-o-five?
My dead line Gemini.

Today I fell asleep in a bath of hair.
Hair that once sprouted from my own
white wet chalk follicles.
I swallow a coal
and follow my breath
and I did it with the grapefruit soap
thinking of you.
Bathed, shaved, and oiled,
your legs are two skinny dolphins swimming
between the mattress and the layers of bedding
turning in your drug dry sleep.
When I ask you to kiss my pulse
you offer to start the shower.
I want a verb and you give me a noun.
What do you dream up while I tongue you down?

There was a moth caught in the soapdish
laminated in lye
Will you still remember me well
If I don't get to two-o-o-five?
My dead line Gemini.

You know my build.
You know my size.
The degree to which my eyes
are astigmatic.
Track Name: 2004. Who is It (Björk)
His embrace, a fortress
It fuels me
And places
A skeleton of trust
Right beneath us
Bone by bone
Stone by stone
If you ask yourself patiently and carefully:
Who is it ?
Who is it that never lets you down ?
Who is it that gave you back your crown ?
And the ornaments are going around
Now they're handing it over
Handing it over

He demands a closeness
We all have earned a lightness
Carry my joy on the left
Carry my pain on the right

If you ask yourself patiently and carefully:
Who is it ?
Who is it that never lets you down ?
Who is it that gave you back your crown ?
And the ornaments are going around
Now they're handing it over
Handing it over
Track Name: 2003. Toxic (Britney Spears)
Baby, can’t you see
I’m calling
A guy like you
Should wear a warning
It’s dangerous
I’m fallin’

There’s no escape
I can’t wait
I need a hit
Baby, give me it
You’re dangerous
I’m lovin’ it

Too high
Can’t come down
Losing my head
Spinning ‘round and ‘round
Do you feel me now?

With a taste of your lips I’m on a ride
You're toxic I'm slipping under
With a taste of a poison paradise
I’m addicted to you
Don’t you know that you’re toxic
And I love what you do
Don’t you know that you’re toxic

It’s getting late
To give you up
I took a sip
From my devil's cup
Slowly
It’s taking over me

Too high
Can’t come down
It’s in the air
And it’s all around
Can you feel me now

With a taste of your lips I’m on a ride
You're toxic I'm slipping under
With a taste of a poison paradise
I’m addicted to you
Don’t you know that you’re toxic
And I love what you do
Don’t you know that you’re toxic

Don't you know that you're toxic

[x2]
With a taste of your lips I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slipping under
With a taste of a poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now
Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
Track Name: 2002. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1 (The Flaming Lips)
Her name is Yoshimi
She's a black belt in karate
Working for the city
She has to discipline her body

'Cause she knows that it's demanding
To defeat those evil machines
I know she can beat them
Oh Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me

Those evil-natured robots
They're programmed to destroy us
She's gotta be strong to fight them
So she's taking lots of vitamins
'Cause she knows that it'd be tragic
If those evil robots win
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots eat me
Yoshimi

'Cause she knows that it'd be tragic
If those evil robots win
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots eat me
Yoshimi they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots eat me
Yoshimi
Track Name: 2001. New Slang (The Shins)
Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only I don't know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet I was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you'd 'a took to me like a gull takes to the wind.
Well, I'd 'a jumped from my tree
And I'd 'a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it's right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head's to the wall and I'm lonely.

And if you'd 'a took to me like a gull takes to the wind.
Well, I'd 'a jumped from my tree
And I'd 'a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

God speed all the bakers at dawn
May they all cut their thumbs,
And bleed into their buns 'til they melt away.

I'm looking in on the good life I might be doomed never to find.
Without a trust or flaming fields am I too dumb to refine?

And if you'd 'a took to me like
I'd 'a danced like the queen of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.
Track Name: 1944. All You Fascists Bound To Lose (Woodie Guthrie)
I’m gonna tell you fascists
You may be surprised
The people in this world
Are getting organized
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose

Race hatred cannot stop us
This one thing we know
Your poll tax and Jim Crow
And greed has got to go
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose.

All of you fascists bound to lose:
I said, all of you fascists bound to lose:
Yes sir, all of you fascists bound to lose:
You’re bound to lose! You fascists:
Bound to lose!

People of every color
Marching side to side
Marching ‘cross these fields
Where a million fascists dies
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose!

I’m going into this battle
And take my union gun
We’ll end this world of slavery
Before this battle’s won
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose!
Track Name: 1999. What's My Age Again (Blink-182)
I took her out. It was a Friday night
I wore cologne to get the feeling right
We started making out, and she took off my pants
But then I turned on the TV

And that's about the time she walked away from me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And are still more amused by TV shows
What the hell is ADD?

My friends say I should act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?

Then later on, on the drive home
I called her mom from a pay phone
I said I was the cops, and your husband's in jail
This state looks down on sodomy

And that's about the time that bitch hung up on me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And are still more amused by prank phone calls
What the hell is Call ID?

My friends say I should act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?

And that's about the time she walked away from me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And you still act like you're in freshman year
What the hell is wrong with me?

My friends say I should act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?

That's about the time that she broke up with me
No one should take themselves so seriously
With many years ahead to fall in line
Why would you wish that on me?
I never wanna act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?

What's my age again?
Track Name: 1998. Waltz #2 (XO) (Elliott Smith)
First the mic, then a half cigarette
Singing Kathy's clown
That's the man she's married to now
That's the girl that he takes around town
She appears composed
So she is, I suppose
Who can really tell?
She shows no emotion at all
Stares into space like a dead china doll

I'm never gonna know you now but I'm gonna love you anyhow

Now she's done, and they're calling someone
Such a familiar name
I'm so glad that my memory's remote
'Cause I'm doing just fine hour to hour, note to note
Here it is, the revenge to the tune
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Can't you tell that it's well understood?

I'm never gonna know you now but I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm here today, expect it to stay on, and on, and on
I'm tired, I'm tired
Looking out on the substitute scene
Still going strong
XO Mom
It's OK, it's alright, nothing's wrong
Tell Mr. Man with impossible plans
To just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes
In the place where I have what it takes

I'm never gonna know you now but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now but I'm gonna love you anyhow
Track Name: 1997. Polar Opposites (Modest Mouse)
Polar opposites don't push away
It's the same on the weekends as the rest of the days
And I know I should go but I'll probably stay
And that's all you can do about some things
I'm trying to drink away the part of the day
That I cannot sleep away
Two one eyed dogs, they're looking at stereos
Hi-fi Gods try so hard to make their cars low to the ground
These vibrations oil its teeth
Primer gray is the color when you're done dying
I'm trying to drink away the part of the day
That I cannot sleep away
Track Name: 1996. Red-Eyed and Blue (Wilco)
We've got solid state technology
Tapes on the floor
Some songs we can't afford to play
When we came here today
All I wanted to say was how much I miss you
Alcohol and cotton balls
And some drugs we can't afford on the way
When we came here today
We all felt something true
Now I'm red-eyed and blue
Track Name: 1995. High and Dry (Radiohead)
Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle,
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition,
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror,
You're turning into something you are not

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you,
You will be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing that you ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing you ever had has gone away

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Track Name: 1994. The End of the Tour (TMBG)
There's a girl with a crown and a scepter
Who's on WLSD
And she says that the scene isn't what it's been
And she's thinking of going home
That it's old and it's totally over now
And it's old and it's over, it's over now
And it's over, it's over, it's over now
I can see myself
At the end of the tour
When the road disappears
If there's any more people around
When the tour runs aground
And if you're still around
Then we'll meet at the end of the tour
The engagements are booked through the end of the world
So we'll meet at the end of the tour
Never to part since the day we met
Out on Interstate 91
I was bent metal, you were a flaming wreck
When we kissed at the overpass
I was sailing along with the people
Driving themselves to distraction inside me
Then came a knock on the door which was odd
And the picture abruptly changed
At the end of the tour
When the road disappears
If there's any more people around
When the tour runs aground
And if you're still around
Then we'll meet at the end of the tour
The engagements are booked through the end of the world
So we'll meet at the end of the tour
This was the vehicle; these were the people
You opened the door and expelled all the people
This was the vehicle; these were the people
You opened the door and expelled all the people
This was the vehicle; these were the people
You let them go
At the end of the tour
When the road disappears
If there's any more people around
When the tour runs aground
And if you're still around
Then we'll meet at the end of the tour
The engagements are booked through the end of the world
So we'll meet at the end of the tour
And we're never gonna tour again
No, we're never gonna tour again
Track Name: 1993. Dumb (Nirvana)
I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy

My heart is broke
But I have some glue
Help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
And have a hangover ...
Have a hangover

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy
I think I'm dumb
