Ok. I rather foolishly offered to cover any song for people donating 10 or more on my Movember site. This is the thread to keep track of my ear destroying progress. Tracklist so far is..

Fergalicious - Fergie ft Will I Am.
The Ballad of Czolgosz - Assassins.
Deep Enough - Live.
Eyes Without A face - Billy Idol.
When The Sun Goes Down - Arctic Monkeys.
Stitches - Orgy.
My Humps - Black Eyed Peas

Add your own track by contributing here.

101 in Chinese currency. You may as well get used to it now.

How have I ended up doing 2 Black Eyed Peas songs? (Well 1 and 2 thirds).Who knew you were all such big fans.

I was just trying to think of the most embarassing song possible.

Put me in for Billy Idol - take what you would have paid me for your Green Gartside ticket. :)

I'm already doing all those - you have to pick a song yourself.

If you'd rather, I could change mine to "Fuck Me On The Dance Floor" by Disco D. and Princess Superstar.

I'll post them to the individuals once done. If they decide to share them with the world, then so be it.

You can now add Thong Song and Suspicious Minds to the list.

So you would definitively sing Puttin' on the Ritz for me for ten pounds? Kinda sounds worth it.If i pay 15 pounds do I get see you dance to it too?

Dancing is not an optional extra. I wouldn't subject anyone to that sight.

The Ballad of Czolgosz - Assassins.


This one is random! Some friends in drama school, eh?

"i wanna dance with somebody" by whitney houston. and all it cost me was 10. what a steal!

No, just me!


It's a very singy song; most of my other ideas were songs I love due to the guitar squalls, etc.
The difficulty is on the speed, not the range. I can never get that field of lilies, tower of light bit right so I want to hear Chris have a go.
Chris is one person so no Confrontation or, say, the sixth movement of Brahms' requiem.
I realize these are mostly based on assumptions on how Chris will do this so how about: it's a very fun song. About an assassination.
Also we just went to Long Island to see a local production and I keep singing "in Buffalo" to myself.

Work has progressed slowly but surely. Came up with a backing track for Fergalicious that sounded more like Battles (but not sure if I'll use it yet) and played around with some guitar loops for Eyes Without A Face. Have a couple of insane weeks coming up as far as work and shows go, but will do what I can on my days off to move the tracks along a bit further.

Just listening to Eyes Without A Face in a bar. I'd like your interpretation. I won't share. Promise.

I'm planning to participate this year, though I can't offer the same quality of incentive as our friend sonofhal did a year ago. I'm still mulling over some ideas but will have something in place well before Movember kicks off next month.

My Mo Space profile (http://us.movember.com/mospace/2502016) erroneously lists me as a two-year participant, though hopefully they'll remove that badge for me as I don't want to be a phony.

Anyone else planning on participating this year? Perhaps we can get a worldwide Coachella Forum team going.

I will be participating though I'm not sure as it if I'll sign up for the website or ask for donations. Not really my style.

Planning on it. Need to come up with a good incentive, though.

I'll donate 10 pounds just for chris to attend The Killmanjaro Darkjazz ensemble show in London .Yet I want a review, the free ep they are giving out at these shows and a photo to prove that he attended.

He mentioned having some catching up to do when I posted a link to my Mo Space page on Facebook this morning. Maybe yours will be one of the first official recordings by Sausages, our Coachella forum supergroup!
