sing along everyone


A few days ago there was a Covers Concert with KSPU radio on the SPU campus.
I only heard about it the day of through Patrick L while he was playing some diddies at my house. We sang "Eyes Wide Open" while hanging out, and he invited me to sing with him at the Concert. And so we did. We were both really nervous and jittery prior to performing, during the performance, and really hyper afterward. I couldn't really hear myself so i didn't sound too great. but oh well. It was just for kicks anyway.
And then while i was there, one of my friends, Nate, who works for the station invited me to sing a cover too. So spur of the moment, I decided to play "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division. It all ended up being recorded and put on the KSPU site. I wouldn't say it is one of my best performances ha... i was shakin' like a leaf. And i had been having a really rough 3 days prior to. My body was shakin' so hard while i was trying to play that my leg, which was holding me up, felt like it was about to kick off the chair without my control. visualize a convulsing Moorea while listening to the recording haha.

here is my recording: Moorea Seal: "Love will tear us apart" by Joy Division
here is Patrick and me: Patrick Landfair & Moorea: "Eyes Wide Open" by Iron and Wine
my personal favorites are:
Daniel Caldwell, Natalie Closner & the String Quartet: "Paper Planes" by MIA.
Nate Rogers: "Tango 'til They're Sore" by Tom Waits
Grant Geertsma & Kiersten Holine: "Always Something There to Remind Me" by Naked Eyes
