Sweet Dreams (are made of) this… who am I to disagree? I’m kind of a vintage retro girl already 😉 and quite an insomniac so here a lullabyish version short cover of this 80s classic hit by Eurythmics (1983) in a lullaby soothing kind of mood . Recorded live in three takes, voice and harmonies For me this song and “Mad World” had that soothing yet slightly “bitter” quality. I’ve covered also TFF Mad World you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VT2W… What are dreams really made of anyway? What are your favourite 80s songs, let me know in the comments! I always say a cover never beats an original so please make sure to check the ORIGINAL song by Eurythmics, it’s a classic!. This cover is just a tribute shout out to the original that you should check, originally sung by Annie Lennox and with more upbeat mood. This is more of candid dreamy take but please let me know your opinion. Hope you find it soothing. What are your favourite 80s/90s songs? Mine you will see as I drop one now and then, being this one of them, also Tears for Fears, Bowie, Depeche Mode, This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins and lots of film music Post your suggestions in the comments and let me know! Though most my channel is devoted to my original music I’m doing a series of very short covers to honour my influences. Songs that were on my Walkman as a child (yes, I’m that vintage), mostly 80s, early 90s and geeky fantasy movies. So that will be a separate playlist (covers) and I’ll try to share a candid take like this more often.
This version is recorded LIVE from my studio (just last week, January 2019) as a fan tribute using ONLY Spitfire Audio LABS free virtual instruments, and from here thanks very much for sharing these free (but outstanding) instruments for composers.
I know all Labyrinth songs and I may be encouraged to try a few more next
I also have to say I know almost the whole soundtrack by heart and I even was invited to perform the score to the 30th anniversary FAERIECON 2016 . Then I learned all the songs from Labyrinth in order to perform on a special event celebrating 3 decades after the release. There I met again with The Frouds (designers of the movie, Toby was the baby and actually works with his parents creating puppets as in Dark Crystal new series). Also in the picture Jim Henson’s daughter and illustrator Charles Vess (Stardust, Sandman)
Revisiting snippets of old geeky fantasy things… What is your favourite fantasy movie?
I am intending to to do a series of things that were meaningful to me as a child… as you know my favourite movie is The Dark Crystal and I’ve shared like four tributes of that, but there are also other songs I’m intending to cover like The Neverending Story, Last Unicorn, and more… and even some 80s and early 90s things that were a familiar soundtrack when I grew up
but just curious… what are your favourite fantasy movies just in case I may be intending to cover some of them
