This is my 4th take. Recorded in Audacity on my AT2020 mic, filmed on my Canon Vixia camera and synched up in Adobe Premiere. No tuning, or video cuts. (Unlike most of my covers, I recorded this one in the early morning so I could get that deep Frollo voice on. Made it a bit of a challenge to hit the higher stuff though XP)
And now, the links and credits! *said nobody, ever*
- Claude Frollo -
The world is cruel
The world is wicked
It's I alone whom you can trust in this whole city
I am your only friend.
I who keep you, teach you, feed you, dress you
I who look upon you without fear
How can I protect you, boy, unless you always stay in here?
Away in here.
(Remember what I taught you, Quasimodo)
You are deformed
And you are ugly
And these are crimes for which the world shows little pity
You do not comprehend!
Out there they'll revile you as a monster
Out there they will hate and scorn and jeer
Why invite their calumny and consternation?
Stay in here
Be faithful to me
Grateful to me
Do as I say
And stay in here
(You are good to me master... I'm sorry.)
(You are forgiven, but remember Quasimodo, this is your sanctuary.)
- Quasimodo -
Safe behind these windows and these parapets of stone
Gazing at the people down below me
All my life I watch them as I hide up here alone
Hungry for the histories they show me
All my life I've memorized their faces
Knowing them as they will never know me
All my life I wonder how it feels to pass a day
Not above them
But part of them
And out there
Living in the sun
Give me one day out there
All I ask is one to hold forever
Where they all live unaware
What I'd give
What I'd dare
Just to live one day out there
Out there among the millers and the weavers and their wives
Through the roofs and gables I can see them
Every day they shout and scold and go about their lives
Heedless of the gift it is to be them
If I were in their skin
I'd treasure every instant!
Strolling by the Seine
Taste a morning out there
Like ordinary men
Who freely walk about there
Just one day and then I swear I'll be content
With my share
Old and bent
I won't care
I'll have spent one day

WELCOME TO THE END OF THE DESCRIPTION, DDR's (Dedicated Description Readers)!
I haven't done a poll in a while... Any newcomers? I feel like the majority of my DDR's have been with me since my Pony Music days, and that's AWESOME!! But It'd also be cool to have a few new members! (I suppose I could always tell people about it in my video, but that would spoil the fun... ;-)
Anyway, sorry I didn't release a video last week. I was in Vancouver working on a very fun project with Michelle (and also recording a secret project that I can't tell you about yet. XP)
In case you haven't seen it yet, here's the video/song we made! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTWkJIgJ0mk
It turned out pretty cool I think, especially for how quickly we had to make it! (Michelle stayed up all night editing!)
My bro and I are working on a new song too and the original plan was to get it released by this week, but we both got pretty busy and decided to push it to next week.
My uncle David is visiting from Maryland and we've been having a blast! Put a few 2lb tannerite targets under a mountain of dirt (it was too windy to safely use gasoline) and the result was quite epic! I recommend trying that if you can legally make tannerite and have an HPR.
Oh yeah, a few neighbors requested that I do a little air show for them next time I went flying, so I practiced my wingovers near their houses. It was pretty fun! Here's a video if you're interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3yjeH0FaBw
