“The Raven” like You’ve Never Heard it (Probably)

Posted on

So, I got a Mac a while back, and something I’ve always wanted to do was create a song in Garageband. I’ve never played any instruments other than the trumpet and trombone, and neither of those lend well to digital music.

Garageband has a huge library of loops. I started to play with different combinations, and I finally decided on the words I wanted to use. So, without any further ado, I give you The Raven (rap).

Yep. That’s that.

Please excuse the mis-pronunciation of “quaff” and “beak.” If I ever re-record it, I’ll fix my gaffs.

      Haha, why thank you. I had fun with it! Poe is one of my favorite writers, and I do enjoy the Raven.

        It’s definitely one of my favourite poems . . . I can quote from most of the verses, but can rarely remember what order they come in. (I find it annoying – if understandable – how most anthologies give you selected verses rather than the whole thing.)

        Yes! Anthologies and collections that contain only excerpts are exceedingly annoying! I’m reading through The Orwell Reader right now, and it’s nice to get a feel for his overall writing style, but I hate getting just pieces here and there.

Tell me what you think!
