Playboy Mansioned

Tim Hurley from Yonkers, New York, has covered Playboy Mansion. We don’t often offer downloads off our own server because we fear the spork of our ISP but what the hell… go easy on us. (It’s a 5.6mb .wma file) Hurley wants feedback and says he’ll bear whatever flames you’ve got, but U2log.com readers are lovely and friendly and fluffy and will be kind but firm.

And let me be the first to say: “I LIKE it.”

  1. lovely, friendly, fluffy version: it’s OK, not exactly listen to over & over again material; like the intro & outro (walking)

    kind but Firm part: bass line overrides the lyrics a bit much. prefer to hear singing rather than chanting/breathy phraseology

  3. I think it’s good – not radically different from the original. I’ve got no qualms 🙂 But I do have a suggestion: “it’s who you know that gets you through” – that line could be more accentuated – it got kind of lost.

  5. I do not think this version is very good. Sorry man, it sounds like a good start, it just needs more. It has no dynamics and lacks teeth. The teeth in the original are in the crisp, dirty, bluesy guitar. That isn’t here at all.

  7. Nice instrumentation and vibe. Interesting voice, a little Bowie-esque now and then. But you know man, do your own thing. That’s the name of the game in this business, talent AND originality. Sometimes originality is even more important. Good luck.

  9. This is neat… I agree with taking out the intro and outro. I enjoy the looser feel it has, it seems more… fun than the original? I think it is good enough though.

  11. Uhm, I’m sorry, but anyone could do this. Although I must say the songs lends itself really good voor this kind of crappy vocals. The cheap ass drumloop, the cheaper ass electric guitar and the even cheaper ass accoustic guitar … No, not a great renewing cover.

  13. I’m reminded of a quote from Harold Whitman, who said: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask youself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world need is people who have come alive.”

    More power to you. This song is as good as what you do with it.

  15. Hey Ben, it sure is easy for you to judge the merits of someone’s cover of this U2 song when you haven’t tried to make one yourself. Make a better cover, and then maybe your own comments will have merit.

  17. Oh, and I would like to make something clear as well… I am not attacking you as a person. I don’t even know you, so I don’t think that would be right. I just don’t agree with the manner of your comments. It’s not very constructive to just say a song is crap and not give an idea on how to improve it. What’s crap to you might be someone else’s treasure.

  19. the good one finally. damn.. this sounds pretty ok. Like your voice too, bit lou reed bowiesque indeed.. nothing wrong with that. think nothing is wrong with the intro and the outro (but i am curious why you chose it)

  21. oh.. yes and i think that you chose for the lofi loops and the lofi guitar is just cool. Dont listen to someone who propably prefers backstreet boys perfection but no soul in it.

  23. Ok, I’m very sorry if I hurt your feelings :+

    As a matter of fact, I’m in a coverband and I make a lot of music with computers.

    And don’t get me wrong, LoFi can be very cool, but in _my_ opinion this sounds soulless.

    And thank you David for that Backstreet boys part… You couldn’t be more wrong 🙂 And remember: never listen to bad comments, only to good ones.

  25. Excellent. Soul. Passion. A bit of porn. Wicked tune. Ignore the Critics. Burn their words. A critic is the easiest thing to be.(other than an arse)

  27. ben, it doesnt matter what you said didnt want to diss you. But i thought you were a music perfectionist who could only judge music which is perfect and got no soul in it. Glad you dont go for the backstreet boys perfection.
