Video with 1 note
I took some video of part of my rail commute and set it to the English-language cover of Yatta! I made recently; the result turned out surprisingly mellow. More info and an MP3 download in the track’s original post.
Captioned lyrics are included if you click through to YouTube. Here’s the direct YouTube link for embedophobes.
This goofy track has gotten a far kinder response here and elsewhere than I thought it would; thanks, Internet! I shall have to do more musical things.

I started playing with recording over my own voice in multitrack, and after about an hour and a half this accidentally happened.
If you’re one of the poor unfortunate souls who haven’t experienced the glorious original version, here’s the video and here’s the Wikipedia article. I put together these lyrics based on multiple English translations floating around out there; I think I’ve kept the basic gist of each line intact.
I have no regrets; if nothing else, at least I actually hit every sour note without pitch-bending or autotuning of any kind.
Download this track here if you’re unwell enough to want to do such a thing.
Edit February 3, 2011: There’s a music video now as well.
