My favorite Green Day song.

*I apologize for the audio synching issues... this is synched perfectly in the original video file... here, the drum video is too fast for some reason... and other small things. Oh well. Hopefully it's not too distracting.*

Recorded, performed, filmed, and edited by Chris Caulder, primarily at the Fort Washington School of Rock (Ft. Washington, PA).

This cover is a VideoSong, a new medium with 2 rules:
1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

Video shot on Canon Vixia HF200 (most shots). Also shot on Canon T2i (bass and bass close-up).

Recording: Drums miked using Glyn Johns 3-mic technique (condenser mic above, condenser mic near the ride and floor tom, and an AKG D112 inside the bass drum). Guitar miked using Shure SM57 on a Line6 Spider III 75 (3 different takes). Recorded to Tascam FW-1082 firewire interface, very little EQ and compression added.

lyrics:

I sit alone in my bedroom, staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding, my love is yearning

I hold my breath and close my eyes and
dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so
never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away

I sit outside and watch the sun rise, look out as far as I can
I can't see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter, we laugh together

I hold my breath and close my eyes and
dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so
never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away
