It's that one song in Portal 2 n' shit.

So, like, I have this student and she wanted to enter a contest with this song, so I decided to make our own accompaniment track 'cause there aren't any out there. Then I decided to make a version with my dumb voice in it! =D

Don't take this seriously at all, it's just bjdshgkjdkghjddklhdf

Lyrics:

Exile, it takes your mind again
Exile, it takes your mind again

You've got sucker's luck
Have you given up?
Does it feel like a trial?
Does it trouble your mind the way
You trouble mine?

Exile, it takes your mind again

Oh you meant so much
Have you given up?
Does it feel like a trial?
Does it trouble your mind
The way you trouble mine

Does it feel like a trial?
Oh you're thinking too fast
You're like marbles on glass

Vilify, don't even try
Vilify, don't even try

You've got sucker's luck
Have you given up?
Does it feel like a trial?
Does it trouble your mind
The way you trouble mine?

Does it feel like a trial?
Did you fall for the same
Emptinesses again?

Vilify, don't even try
Vilify, don't even try
Vilify, don't even try
Vilify, don't even try

I honestly have no real criticisms, this was an excellent cover, still honors the original but made your own. Very good song.

OOOHHH FEMALE I STILL LOVE IT


LadyArsenic responds:

^_^ I'm so glad you do. You wouldn't believe how picky some people can get when they hear someone opposite gender to the original singer do a cover. It's silly really.

Let's get the bad stuff out of the way first. This song is really muddy in the low end. It's mainly the fault of the deep piano/strings combo. Take off any reverb/delay/sustain pedal you have down there, the song should really clear up once you do that. Plus I think you have too many instruments down there (though it's hard to tell). Just one - the piano - should be sufficient.

The other thing is that I think you've transcribed the piano of the original song slightly incorrectly. There's no high note being played immediate at the third bar. I think the rhythm of the other notes is also just a touch off (but not enough to really drive me crazy).

The good stuff is that your singing is totally fabulous and it ties the whole song together. I really like the subtle delay that you can sometimes here "suckers luck-uck-uck". I'm not much of a singer, so I can't talk in very technical terms, but you did a really nice job here.

Also, you chose the BEST POSSIBLE SONG to cover. I really like The National and I like this song in particular. So good job there. ;-P
