Watch Over You (Re-Post)

*Apparently blogger was being a bit of a pain yesterday and somehow managed to 'lose' my video, so I've uploaded it again. It should be fine now, thanks for letting me know about the problem.

When doing covers, it is inevitable that you be compared to the original. Which is why it's important to either put your own twist on it or be as good as the original.

Sadly neither has been accomplished here.

Still, I decided to put this up because this is one of my favourite songs, I really loved working it out and it's got very meaningful lyrics that seemed apt for me at one point in my life; so much so that I put them up as a post over here.

I strongly suggest you click here for the original and check out the band. Myles Kennedy is just a freak on vocals!

This is called "Watch Over You", by Alter Bridge.

Baby Z said...

Hmm...I think my mom has that song on her playlist.

Nice mellow version..
Hats off to the original though! That guy's vocals are just, WOAH. ;D

Charm Bracelet said...

Nice G.

Hmmm.. Would sound better is the vol of the piano was a tad,just a tad lower. Can it be done? Sorry not too technologically inclined in that sense :S

Next time A capella pls. :)

PseudoRandom said...

Yay, managed to watch it this time :-)

Beautiful song, beautiful rendition. I checked out the original...I just don't like the screaming! The lyrics deserve better treatment. And hey, the piano arrangement is your own twist! And a damn good one at that.

Do you take requests? ;-)
