Caught Covid from the Cat!

Original musical satire, courtesy of Chabloz & Menuhin.

For some reason, my audio editing software failed to capture a L/R stereo track with separate channels for vocal and keys.

The audio is therefore mono, meaning less possibilities to edit and remove, for example, plosives and other parasitical noises.

My performance is 100% live, to camera, with the absolute minimum of post-production trickery.

The theme is humorous. No offence is intended towards pet owners or their pets or indeed anyone else. Enjoy!

    And another satire to ponder
    :
    You’ve had the new ultra-infectious ‘UK strain’; the scary South Africa strain and the petrifying South America/ Brazilian strain; but you ‘aint seen nothing yet; just wait ’till the ultra-ultra deadly Outer Mongolian strain arrives!

      Haha! Thanks, Peter. Dieudonné is right: all we have to fight back with is laughter through ridicule and satire. What can they do? Invent Covid ‘denial’ laws?

      Thanks Lucy, glad you’re enjoying the tunes. Music and especially singing are therapeutic in themselves – and good exercise too. Although, today I feel exhausted. There are hours of takes. I could sit and edit, but prefer the authenticity of a full “live” take without too many mistakes.

      Thank you Eva! It’s a catchy tune, yes, – composed in less than a day. Part of the inspiration is from English pub songs. Perhaps one day, a kind-hearted will translate the lyrics properly into German.
