A seasonal question for all you romantic types. We went to our respective mailboxes in Scotland and Massachusetts to post our invitations, but look what happened! Here’s our take on Frank Loesser’s beautifully optimistic song to bring 2017 to a close.
One of the two Stevie Wonder songs we recorded for the “Year Of Living Stevie” podcast, earlier in 2017, we had an opportunity to add a video thanks to a suitable theme challenge over at Theme Music. Stevie’s words (originally about President Nixon) seem to have stood the test of time pretty well.
By special request we recorded this cover of the Joni Mitchell classic, “Both Sides Now”.
On the occasion of our second ever get-together, we did a handful of live performances at Owen’s piano. Here’s our almost-spontaneous, slightly mad take on They Might Be Giants’s “Lucky Ball And Chain”.
A must-do for the “Natural” theme in Theme Music, this Nat King Cole classic gets the full AW treatment. It was also a bucket-list song for Andrea.
“Songs, Bond Songs – The Music of 007” is an amazing covers project spearheaded by Andrew Curry, featuring all the James Bond film themes to date, covered by artists from around the world. In addition to the CD, a bonus EP of rejected Bond themes has been created for Kickstarter contributors. Blondie’s unused “For Your Eyes Only” was selected for inclusion, and we are delighted to put our stamp on it for the project!
You can hear it here. A video will eventually follow – watch this space!
When Andrea introduced Owen to Jon Brion’s album Meaningless, it was inevitable that something would happen. This was it! Or at least the start of it. And it didn’t ruin our day either.
Got stuck in a troublesome relationship? Andrea has a few wise words for you. 🙂 Our second completed original takes the beltway around Motown on the road to discovery.
Another from our Theme Music collaborations archive. For Andrea’s choice of Colbie Caillat’s “Try” we called upon the massed talents of fellow Themesters Gayle Graizzaro, Dara Diamant, Carey Anne, Diana Chadwell Brown, Linda Hodgson, Wendi Dunlap and Tess Hoffman.
This CeeLo Green song originally had two versions: the radio-friendly, “Forget You”, and the real version. We did the real one. So if you don’t like your F-words, skip on by. But you’ll miss the Owenettes doing their thing! 😉
