This is the first rough mix of a song by Mazzy Star that I like. It's a straightforward cover recorded and mixed with GarageBand. FretPet supplied a stand-in for the guitar part that was replaced with an acoustic guitar for the final mix. Synth parts were played through GarageBand with the trusty Oxygen 8. Vocal parts were layered and effected in GarageBand.

"Rhymes of an Hour" by Mazzy Star

Cannot hear what you're saying
Could I tell you so
And I can't believe my troubles
And I'm goin' home

Lie and sleep
Under deep
You know

While the cold winter's waiting
While it's turning cold
All the things we were searching
Now we just don't know

Lie and sleep
Under deep
I think you know

For the rhymes of an hour
And I'm going home
And I can't believe I'm nothing
'Cause I'm coming down

Lie and sleep
Under deep
Do you know?
