The first time I heard Sara Bareilles’ song “Basket Case”, I broke into tears. Everything from the lyrics, to the melody line, to the heart she puts in her delivery of this tune speaks to my soul. The effects in the background are both complex and simple, from the harmony line to the electric guitar part to the harmonica.
This song makes me feel absolutely alone. It makes me long for someone that I want to love, but for some reason, they won’t let me. It makes me feel as though I could actually be normal if I just had a little more attention/time/love. And the beauty in this track absolutely makes my heart melt. The “crispness” of the guitar makes it feel so incredibly real, that it’s haunting. At 2:54, the “Boom” of the bass drum, makes my heart skip a beat, and the effects on the electric guitar/vocal background effects take me sailing on a sea of sorrow.
Please help me make my own version of this song by backing at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshdamigo/help-josh-damigo-make-a-new-record.
