Owing to popular demand we are this special year going to have TWO

LibriVox 10th Anniversary Songs

This is the first one and we're ready to ROCK!

  • You don't have to be able to read music, or even to be able to sing!

  • You may sing/speak/shout as much or as little of it as you wish. Extras are welcome - hurrays, whoops and other mad things.

  • I can't use everything, but the more I have, the more fun it will be. Those of you who have done this before know that I will be using as many voices as I possibly can - some bits solo, other bits duets, other bits a massive chorus of voices. EVERYONE will be in it somewhere!


The zip file is here: https://librivox.org/uploads/ruthieg/boomdeyada2015.zip. It includes these files:

    MP3 of melody and accompaniment: boomdeyada2015.mp3
    MP3 of melody only: boomdeyada2015melody.mp3
    PDF of words and melody line only: boomdeyada2015.pdf
    Text file of words only: boomdeyada2015.txt
    Also a bonus singalongaruth, with me taking a one-time, warts-and-all go at singing it: singalongaruth.mp3

This is how you do it:

  • Import (or drag) boomdeyada2015.mp3 into Audacity.
  • In Edit | Preferences | Recording, tick the box that says "Overdub: Play other tracks while recording new one"
  • Click record and sing along while listening using headphones if possible. Put the playback sound down low (or adjust the Gain slider at the left of that track) so that it doesn't get recorded with your voice.
  • Now you should have two tracks. When you are happy with it, just delete the accompaniment track, and export your voice track as an MP3.
  • Don't forget to uncheck the Playthrough box when you have finished.
  • Call your file boomeyada2015_yourinitials.mp3, and number it [e.g. yourinitials1] if you upload more than one file.
  • Upload it to my folder RuthieG by 26th July !

Words are also here:

Quote:
We used to sing this song
Way back in twenty ten.
We've lots of readers now
Who just weren't here then.
And so we thought that
We'd sing this song again.

Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da

(very slight pause)

I like recording
I love the microphone
I like to listen
On my drive back home
I love the forums
When the lights are low

Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da

I love the drama,
I like the poetry
I like to stay up late
Until it's nearly three
I just love Librivox
There're always friends I know

Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da

We're still recording
Now LibriVox is ten
We find old treasures that
We can revive again
We'll keep on searching
Through the public domain.

Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da

And when we asked you
If you could help us out,
We could rely on you -
Of that there is no doubt.
And you're donating,
So thanks to all of you!

Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da, boom-de-ya-da


Over to you!

Ruth

May I ask what the number two song is going to be?

One must pace oneself, after all...

Ten Years, Ten Years to the tune of Widdecombe Fair, coming later today.

But I am going to have a special challenge for you, in addition, SotE :lol:. So get your voice in good working order. (You asked for it, if you remember :twisted:.)

Uh-oh. I do believe that I have challenged Ruth's ... ingenuity. :shock:

Here is mine, I did not have enough oxygen for the final boom-deyada galore, you can hear when I gasp for air :D

I kept the pause at the beginning, so it should fit with your music track

This was fun - brilliant lyrics :clap:

Thank you! No worries about that - there will be plenty of voices (I hope!).
