Dear Internet,

Do you remember when I tried to record a year’s worth of covers with the month name in them? Well, this year I decided to try again and actually finish this time. Considering that I only did two last time -and only posted the recording of one- I haven’t set the bar very high. Can y’all make sure I at least make it through March this time?

Anyway, here’s January. I chose Black Dove (January) by Tori Amos, as it’s a favorite from my days as a misanthropic teenager. None of this is mixed well, or mastered, so you’ll have to wait for a final mastered version at the end of the year when I finish.

As a bonus, here’s a short clip of my mouth tracking some of these vocals:

Here are lyrics:

She was a January girl
She never let on how insane it was
in that tiny kinda scary house
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods

black-dove, black-dove
you’re not a helicopter
you’re not a cop-out either, honey
black-dove, black-dove
you don’t need a space ship
they don’t know you’ve already lived
on the other side of the galaxy
the other side of the galaxy
the other side of the galaxy

she had a January world
so many storms not right somehow
how a lion becomes a mouse
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods

but I have to get to TEXAS
said I have to get to TEXAS
and I’ll give away my blue, blue dress
my blue dress

black-dove, black-dove
you’re not a helicopter
you’re not a cop-out either, honey
black-dove, black-dove
you don’t need a space ship
they don’t know you’ve already lived
on the other side of the galaxy
the other side of
the other side of the galaxy

but I have to get to TEXAS
said I have to get to TEXAS
and I’ll give away my blue dress
because cowboy
the snakes they are my kin
are my kin

she had a January girl
she never let on how insane it was
in that tiny kinda scary house
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
by the woods, by the woods, by the woods
black-dove
