Day 139(4 days late): El Scorcho

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

This week has been absolute hell, so I decided to do a fun song…. El Scorcho by Weezer, who, FYI, is one of my all time favorite bands!!! By the way, don’t you just love how awkward they are in that video? I think it basically is the meaning of the song… awkward puberty years :)

I found some very easy Ukulele chords for this, but unfortunately I practiced it too many times before recording it, so by the time I got a decent take, my hands were very tired and sore… I botched the bridge pretty badly. So, just bear with me. And I sort of ad-libbed the guitar solo after that, so it’s sort of crazy. And also, I started playing the wrong chord in the end, so it resolved awkwardly… ugh. I’m tired…

El Scorcho

My favorite verse is the last one, particularly the last line, and I sort of fumbled the words, so here it is for your entertainment.

I wish I could get my head out of the sand
‘Cause I think we’d make a good team
And you would keep my fingernails clean

But that’s just a stupid dream that I won’t realize
‘Cause I can’t even look in your eyes Without shakin’, and I ain’t fakin’
I’ll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon!

:mrgreen: Such a fun song! Hope to get caught up this weekend, but I might sleep for days… we’ll see!
