One With Nature: Wichita Lineman Video Shoot
Today I was kissing trees, posing with a Wonder woman lunch pail and then carrying a tire iron about the orchards. There were telephone poles, planes, miles of young corn and grapefruits plus a friendly police officer who never stopped to ask us why we were trespassing ;)
I sang der "Wichita Lineman" and it seemed is if my voice became even deeper which at this point means I could probably make the final five to replace Felipe in The Village People.
So I sang higher and girlie but it was all treacle and treble, so after TEN takes ( nominal by traditional Who/Pete standards)I sort of got it right...actually i think it's flat and odd but oh well I'm doing this with a digital camera, boom box and a dream!
It is the hardest song I will ever sing, opera is actually easier.
On You Tube there is a Sergio Mendes version, a Stone Temple Pilots to a Hall and Oates style synth from 1989 and of course a band from Spain; virtually EVERYONE has covered this song!
Now I have tons of footage to edit and my camerman's tire iron to find somewhere out here in the fields. I don't usually look this mean and hard but I was definitely feeling Varla in Faster Pussycat!Kill!Kill!
