War Pigs (ABBA version)
So, I guess I really didn’t feel like watching TV tonight. Because when I saw this tweet and then this one I just knew I had to spend a couple of hours noodling around with my music toys, in keeping with my new year’s resolution to do that sort of thing more often.
It turns out that it’s harder than I thought to make a track that sort of sounds like ABBA (while presenting a Black Sabbath tune) in under two hours, especially if you don’t play any keyboard instruments and are (at least in the most technical of definitions) a man.
But anyway, without further ado (or excuses) I present:
Black sABBAth rules!
Necessary disclaimers: I AM NOT A REAL SINGER BY MOST ANYONE’S DEFINITION INCLUDING MY OWN. YES I KNOW THE FALSETTO HARMONY PART IS ESPECIALLY RIDICULOUS. YES I KNOW IT SOUNDS MORE LIKE THE BEE GEES THAN ABBA. PLEASE DO NOT POINT THIS OUT TO ME AS I AM EXTREMELY TOUCHY ABOUT IT AAAAARGH. THERE COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE COPYRIGHT ISSUES WITH THIS, RIGHT, I MEAN, IT’S CLEARLY A JOKE AND NOT MISTAKABLE FOR EITHER ORIGINAL ARTIST IN ANY CONCEIVABLE WAY AND I CERTAINLY DON’T HAVE THE STONES TO ASK ANYONE TO PAY FOR THIS ABOMINATION ETC ETC ETC
