Opel Song with Keyboard

Post by Silverchair41 »

Hi Floydians

I did a few years ago a Clip of Syd's Opel with Keyboard. I just want to share. Opel was always my favourite but it seems to be "alone" in a weird way. I only remember I did it on my birthday for Syd for hommage. We have both on 6. January and I always celebrate Syd's first.
I really don't care about clicks and all that rubbish but I thought I should'nt hide it from Floydians.



I hope you like it. It's not much but it means for me alot because I did it for Syd just to say thank you.

Shine on. Best Regards from Switzerland

Thank you. I'm proud of it because that was an one take. I remember trying it with metronome but that was impossible to do so i put the sound on a key, switched it and did it in one take. And (not proud of it) I was drunk. I just love that song and for me it's just a special thing 🙂

Nice effort. Musician Rich Hall did make an Opal remix that is, for me, the ultimate version.
On Facebook only as YouTube deleted it, years ago.
