In July 2009, MetaFilter Music’s challenge for the month was to cover the entire album of The Velvet Underground and Nico, one song at a time, with the songs assigned to the musicians in a master MeFi Music Talk post. You can listen to the results here
Now we’re doing it again. Because of the potentially tricky nature of the album to be covered this time, we’re giving everyone a heads-up in advance so that everyone who wants to participate can, and so that we’ll have some lead time to work on tracks before the official start of the challenge on July 1.
: Radiohead’s OK Computer
How it works
If you want to participate, just say so in this thread. In a few days, I’ll make a follow-up MetaTalk post making the song assignments.
Then work on your song. Do not post your song in MetaFilter Music until sometime between July 1 and July 31.
Starting July 1, post your song in MeFi Music, being sure to tag your submission "mefimusicchallenge" and “OKComputer” so listeners can easily follow along.
Some people love OK Computer
. Others don’t. I hope musical MeFites will participate whether they like the album or not, since some of the most interesting submissions will likely come from people who have no particular love for the source material.
So who’s in?
