Default Just an Idea...

I was thinking, what would TBM songs sound like, classically arranged?
To elaborate:
TBM Songs rearranged for Big Bands or Concert Band. Or, maybe for a different feel, Chamber music or strings etc. You get the idea :P
I think some of the songs would be interesting to experiment with XD

Thoughts? O.o

I say why not?

If they did one with Otep, why not?

The answer to this question is simple and can be defined in a single word:

PHENOMENAL.

I've given this a lot of thought, and their arrangements and melodies would lend themselves so well to a classical format.

I reckon this happens somehow!!!

I'm actually in the process of making a piano arrangement of "Cover My Eyes". I've got the general melody down, I just need to sit in front of a piano for a while and figure out the chords (which I'll probably do while i'm home for Thanksgiving break next week).

As for concert band arrangements, I think "Kill The Lights" would be awesome for that.

Oh I have been wondering this ever since I started writing the TBM musical. Was going to have a Gothic masquerade scene that had one of their songs played classically in the background.

I would love to hear a piano arrangement of that song o.o Its one of the ones I like slightly more than the rest on Hide and Seek XD

I would so go and watch that! o.o

I play in a Concert Band, it would be awesome to play TBM songs XD
If I was better at music theory and the such, I'd give it a go myself :P

I'll do put it on my HorrorShow channel when it's done. I'm not great at arranging things going purely off memory, so I'll try to do it while I'm at home this week.

Concert band arrangements of TBM songs would be awesome! I wonder if I could attempt that...it would be quite demanding though.

I'd been trying to make a classically arranged TBM song for a while but it didn't hit me until today to try Always. It's mostly just piano and strings. I hope you guys like it. :]

I know I've already posted it, but this is mine:

Although I think Donna's is a lot cooler. It's not quite as faithful to the original as mine is, which I think really works for that song.
