VLOG #7 – New Year’s Resolution

It’s the last day of the year and it’s time for me too to recapitulate and make plans for the next year. So here are my thoughts about 2017, how it went for me, and what I expect to happen in 2018.
Because even though it may be the end for Super Eurobeat, it may be the beginning of something great for me.

Anthony McBazooka – Just Another Step (Original Eurobeat song)

Famous from Initial D and SEB (Super Eurobeat series by Avex), Eurobeat is a very special music style, full of energy and power. Anthony McBazooka makes cover songs, original songs and arrangements of game music in Eurobeat style. This time it’s and original song call Just Another Step.

It’s my last song for this year and because of that I will give it away for free this time in all available formats. Find it on Patreon http://ift.tt/2iChoOi or Bandcamp http://ift.tt/2yUsJ34
I wrote the song in 2008 already and it is about motivation to continue to reach for your goals when things aren’t going so great at the moment. I think this is a good message to start a new year.
So keep your heads up everybody, I will do so as well and let’s rock this shit next year! \m/

Lyrics:
You feel that life is hard
Since you had to start
Going your own way now
Fo’ real it’s not a game
And it is a shame
That no one’s there to help you
Walking down the street
Walking in the heat
And you feel the pressure
That you still must fight
Every day and night
Pull yourself together!

The higher you get
On the ladder of success
The obstacles get harder
So you want to take a rest
You want to give up
But your goal is just so close
You must keep on climbing
Until you get the most

Just another step
Into the future
Don’t hold back – Just attack
It’s your life
Just another step
Going your own way
You must stay true – Show that you
Won’t relax

Life’s not only fun
Sometimes you must run
To overtake your rivals
You’ll crawl in the dirt
And you will get hurt
But don’t be afraid of it
If you can stay strong
Then it won’t be long
’til you get what you want
Feel free to ask for help
But stay true to yourself
And go on for your dreams

Falco / T-MA – Mutter, der Mann mit dem Koks ist da (Techno Metal cover by Myrddin Triguel)

I like to make music in many different styles, I compose my own songs but also like to cover songs in a different way. Today’s video is a Techno Metal cover of Falco / T-MA – Mutter, der Mann mit dem Koks ist da.

I had a dream that Rammstein would cover this song. So I had to do it in a similar style (I don’t like the term “Neue Deutsche Härte” or NDH though, I prefer to call it Techno Metal). The lyrics of the song are a play with words in German language:
Kohle can mean coal as well as money.
Koks is coke (from coal) as well as cocaine.
So, with a chemical process, Kohle (coal) becomes Koks (coke) and gives people warmth, comfort, and energy. In the second verse, Koks became white (so it’s cocaine now) and with a very simple recipe it will become Kohle (but this time it’s money) again.
There is no pitch shifting on the vocals, I use throat singing techniques which I have learned a few years ago.

Paul Engemann – Scarface “Push it to the Limit” (Eurobeat cover by Anthony McBazooka)

Famous from Initial D and SEB (Super Eurobeat series by Avex), Eurobeat is a very special music style, full of energy and power. Anthony McBazooka makes cover songs, original songs and arrangements of game music in Eurobeat style. This time it’s my first genie in the bottle* song, a cover of Paul Engemann – Scarface ”Push it to the Limit“.

I must admit I never saw the movie Scarface, I only know that it’s a cult movie from the 80s starring Al Pacino. But there are so many movies I haven’t watched, if I got the time I prefer watching series.
But my Patron lou wanted this song and as a fan of 80s music I love it and I immediately thought this would make a good Eurobeat song.

*Genie in the bottle is a perk on my Patreon. It enables you to wish a song I will perform. You want me to perform a certain song? Become my patron on Patreon: http://ift.tt/2iChoOi
