I’m excited to share this new song and video with you!
If you’ll recall, last year I did an acoustic cover of “All At Once” by Whitney Houston (you can check it out here if you want!) I grew up listening to Whitney Houston. I did not, however, grow up listening to Megadeth. My partner/co-writer, Aman, is a huge fan. He was kind enough to do the Whitney cover with me, so I did the Megadeth cover for him.
One thing I learned while making this cover is how interesting Dave Mustaine’s melodies are. I’d never think to create a melodic structure the way he does, and this is something I can definitely use as a songwriter. I can definitely call myself a Megadeth mini-fan now (not a full fan because Aman would be angry. I don’t know enough of their songs yet to justify calling myself a mega-fan or a Megafan, haha get it??).
Here is our video for our acoustic Megadeth cover:
I hope you enjoyed it! If you want the mp3 version, it will soon be available in my VIP section (sign in here to get it, along with other exclusive Melluminati stuff )
Working with Aman has shown me that you can take a fan of metal and a fan of pop/R&B and create something totally different, like our album Zebra Stone. If you’ve ever been concerned about working with someone because their music wasn’t your style, I encourage you to go for it and see what you can make! You might be pleasantly surprised.
Aman makes Little Blondie microphones, which you can see here. His mic was used on the guitar in this song. Please check him out!
Are you a Megadeth fan? Let me know what songs I should listen to! I am a metal fan, by the way, I just need more exposure to the classics. My personal faves include 5 Finger Death Punch, Disturbed and Halestorm. Let me know who else I should add!
