Song Of The Day - June 30, 2008

Hello and welcome again ladies and gents. As promised in our welcome post each day we will deliver a song of the day to your internet browser. Music is a passion of ours that we we would like to share with all of you, so feel blessed.

Since this is the inaugural song of the day we've decided to present it in video format!

And now without any further adieu... the music Gods present to you:
"Garage Band Anthem" by Cutting Room Floor, the ninth track on their newly released album entitled In Our Luck. *Special thanks goes out to Mark Wurzelbacher for helping us out with the piano track. 

Here's how everything turned out. Let us know what you think!

* - Mark took the time out of his busy schedule to help me with a project for my Music Technology class at ND. I recorded several takes of Mark on the keys and edited them, ironically enough, with the Garage Band program on my Mac. After adding effects to the audio track I set it to a movie slide show of CRF pictures using iMovie.
