Romanian group Crossfire performs "In The Lap Of The Gods", the first version of this song we have as a fan cover.

Enjoy:)

The intro reminds me of 'I Need You' by 3T. I liked the version, very beautiful keyboard work and great voice, too.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

It's actually In the Lap of the Gods Revisited.

Very nice arrangement and performance. Well done.

I rather enjoyed that. Way different to the Queen version which is nice. Simple arrangement and nicely done as well.

Good key work, but sounds like a bad Las Vegas lounge lizard performance....

Kind of like Bill Murray doing Star Wars from the 70's.

I have to agree with that. And may I just say, I hate the Korg piano sound! Ugh... I won't mention my usual recording stuff cause I get the feeling it won't be wanted. The vocal "popping" in and back out was distracting.

Ah, crap.

I've been working on a cover of this song for a couple months, now. I thought I would safely be the only one to do it!

Yeah Aric, I'm sure it'll be much nicer than this one. You are pretty good with covers on here!

I'll put it here. I'm also working on "It's late".
Like all my covers it's basically just going to sound like the original (but not as good!)

I'm a bit delayed as my gig schedule is pretty intense through New Year's Day.

Yes, please send them, Aric. I am really looking forward. "It's Late" - that must have been quite difficult.

The chord progressions during the verses are really different. Interesting.
I miss the backing vocals. . . "You can do it, you can do it, you can go and set them FREEEEEEE!"

Hey, I really didn't mean to turn this into a thread about my upcoming covers.

Sorry!

I'll send them up when I'm finished, but like I said it'll be awhile. I'm very busy right now.

Anyway, to the cover we're supposed to be discussing: I do appreciate that the performer tried to do something different. It takes guts to do that, and creativity, regardless of the outcome.
