Ahktoong Bab-Bi Cover -- FAN EDITION -- Covers Wanted!!
« on: October 27, 2011, 10:26:12 AM »
Artists Wanted!  I would like to produce a fan tribute to Achtung Baby by following in the footsteps of Q Magazine.  But instead of known artists, the covers would be by U2 fans only.  Looking for the best cover of each track....when in doubt I will put it up for a vote. I know there are a lot of talented fans out there and what a better way to mark the 25th anniversary. 

When all tracks are submitted and selected then we'll see where it could go...

Best Case---it becomes something worth downloading for $5 as a charity contribution (AI, ONE, etc.)
Worst Case---one fan submits a really bad version of The Fly.

Count me in. I hope to be able to record some tunes for this.

The Fly
One
Until the End...
Horses
Mysterious Ways would be super cool too.

Going to figure out working arrangements.

I think I'd love to do MW the most, I'll work on that first. It's going to be based on the live version, but since I don't have a band it's going to be somewhat lighter, maybe I'll try some electronic drums.

And Until the End of the World is also something that's been intriguing me. I thought up a twist ending I'd like to hear recorded... :-)

I like Snow Patrol somewhat....but I thought their cover of MW was a bit lacking.  I'm sure you can top what they did!

Also I've got a way cool idea for Zoo Station, so I guess there needs to be some runners up edition too, as it's a very different take on the tune. :-D
Love this idea, Dwaltey, got me thinking creative after a long draught of ideas. Thanks.

I can accompany myself on acoustic guitar to Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses.

But I would KILL to be able to record vocals to a proper instrumental of Ultra Violet.

Ok! The first track has been submitted. But Max, your vocals are so buried in the mix....not sure if that was intentional or if there is something wrong at my end. 

My email should be visible in my profile now.

Keep them coming...can't wait to hear more!

Just tried a different angle on UTEOTW, that might work actually. I don't have keyboards, so I'll have to record guitars later. It might take a day or two.
