The Way I Tend To Be
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED
I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD
The percussion seems fine
I don’t know what you guys are taking about this is beautiful music.
This song was originally preformed by the Misfits in that late 90’s, but was written by Michale Graves who was fronting the band at the time. Rumor has it this song is about his mother who died when he was a boy and was written when he was only 14. “Dig Up Her Bones” is a song about memories because much like bones they are all that’s left when a person dies. They are what remain with us and not even death can take them.

one of the most beautiful songs I know, the lyrics are poetry
