You're the Voice [Bitpop/Chiptune] - Tribute to John Farnham

Made with the sounds of the Commodore 64 home computer.

I had a fella leave a comment on Reddit after I asked what other Iconic Aussie songs I could consider doing and he came back with “How good are you at emulating bagpipes?”. That could only mean one thing. This song.

I actually tried doing this one a few months ago but it ended up on the cutting room floor because the vocals I have are, well, not the standard I wanted. But I really like this song and wanted to have a go at those 8-bit bagpipes!

Since I recently did ‘Lily Was Here’ and that is an instrumental. I thought “why the hell not?”. So I’ve picked up from where I left off with this one. I tried again to massage the vocals into the piece but, nope, it just wasn’t working for me.

Here’s ‘You’re the Voice’ - no vocals but still quite bitpop. Still using exclusively the sounds of the Commodore 64.

As always, made with :heart:
