Weekly-Song #1 - "Daisy"
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I don't know how long I'll be able to keep this up, but I do know that I have tons and tons of basically completed songs that I've pointlessly never released. As an incentive to finish/release my mounds of songs that are going unheard, I am going to release a song each week for... awhile. My goal would be a year, but that really depends on how busy my upcoming semester is going to be. My guess would be: really really epically busy. This test of self-whatever is inspired by Jonathan Coulton's Thing-a-Week which was pretty much the exact same thing I am doing here!
I also haven't chosen a day of the week to release these. I feel like Wednesday nights (Thursday mornings) are always terribly busy, so these will probably be moved to a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night release.
My first weekly-song samples a 1963 computer speech demo done by the Bell Laboratories (hear the original audio). The computer says a few historically significant things and then proceeds to sing "Daisy Bell." The robotic singing gives me goosebumps so I took it and used it!
