Install Like It’s For You- The Remix
I have to tell you that I was rather excited a couple weeks ago when fellow RedBand Blogger John Sciacca (@SciaccaTweets) tweeted about his upcoming article in Residential Systems that would include a Taylor Swift song parody about the install business.
I quickly asked him to alert me when it went live, which he did (Thanks John), and I hurried to check it out. I wasn’t familiar with the Swifty song before seeing this, so I watched the Vevo link and then read his interpretation, smiling the whole time. If you missed the original article, click here.
I promptly complimented John, and then made the mistake of saying I was going to lay this down for him, lol. I quickly attempted to suggest John’s friend Jelly Dee (@AnjelicaDee), with her talent, was much more suited to do this than I, but it was too late! John didn’t give me an easy exit (Thanks Again John) and now I was stuck.
I then went “all in” by also telling Todd Anthony Puma (@ToddAnthonyPuma), another RedBander, that I was preparing to tackle John’s parody. Now I was committed, like it or not.
So I took my 1 year of self-taught acoustic guitar lessons, combined those with probably the most Pink-like Taylor Swift song I have ever heard, added in John’s lyrics, and this is what came out the other end.
Obviously I do not record at home. I don’t have microphones, mixers, garage band software or anything like that. This was captured with all the glory of an HTC front facing camera and microphone J
I wanted to give John’s lyrics a voice. I hope you get a kick out of it.
Best and God Bless!
