Calling all J~land!!!

 
HEAR YE, HEAR YE..ROLL UP, ROLL UP.....ok, I'll stop now..lol!
 
 
Please please please consider this!
 
Right, here's the deal.
 
I want J-land to get together to record a song!! I know it sounds lame, and I can already hear some of you saying 'No way, I can't and WONT sing', but please think about it. About 10 years ago, the BBC released a song called 'Perfect day', originally sung by Lou Reed I think, but they managed to get together a whole bunch of people to sing each line. You can check this video out below.
 
 
          
 
 
 
I've ALWAYS wanted to re-create that in the same way.
 
What I'm proposing is that those who can (anyone with a microphone built into their webcams or external mics) record ONE line of the song and send it to me so that I can fuse em all together. I can even meet you on msn messenger while you record a line using the 'speech' button, or any other way.
 
It doesn't have to sound great and you can even SPEAK the line if you want, as long as it fits into the song on time and is kinda in tune. It doesn't matter what accent or tone or anything. The main reason for doing this is because we're all different,so nothing matters. As far as I know, this has never been done online in this way, so why let's not give it a go?
 
I know for a fact that the end result will be awesome, and I'll make a video as well as an mp3 recording with a pic of everyone who took part. I'll work on it and release it as part of J~land's birthday.
 
Anyone up for it?? Please let me know if you're interested and I'll add the music track on here for you to download, or I'll send by email. Remember, you don't have to record the song. You just have to sing one line onto your pc and I'll do the rest. 
 
Please try to let anyone who might be interested know about this. Thanks a lot.
 
Thanks!

Holy cow...I just watched the video.  I just loved it and I think your idea is fabulous!  (Maybe Oprah or Ellen or somebody would air it on TV).  
Keep me posted!

xxroxymamaxx said...

I want to!!  What a fantastic idea Stevie!!  Can you email me how to do it and assign me a line?  Love, Shelly

justplainbill said...

Steve, you haven't heard anything until you hear me try to sing. When I was in fifth grade the nun told me "Billy, please don't sing, just move your lips." Today at church, several people turned around to look at me, oddly,  when we sang "Amazing Grace."
Give me a line and I will try to practice it on Youtube. Canyou give me a hand in how to record a bit on Youtube?
Good luck this sounds like it may be a blast. Good luck with it, Bill

buckoclown said...

noxylady said...

Well to quote Madonna ... I feel like a Virgin .. well . No... that wasn't what she said, was it ?? <giggling at myself here> I am soooooooo clueless as to how to do anything on the mic or make a wav.I don't even know how to leave my link to my Journal. which doesn't really matter. I haven't figured out the Journal Blogging yet either. I swear I am NOT Blonde !! Good thing I don't know how to do any of that kinda stuff or I might get in  trouble camming with someone! (Can see me now ... I would probably end up setting up Cam and it would be my Brother !!! lol
