In this video, we performed a cover song of Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way’. Bunkie handled the vocals, I did the keyboard line, and Trie tackled her first major song with her drum set and amazed us!
Why did we do ‘My Way’? Well, to explain that, I need to introduce you to a rather special goat of ours, Pika. Pika is our one-eared wonder, as she was attacked by a dog. The dog badly damaged her leg and we weren’t able to salvage her ear, hence the one-eared wonder theme, and that is why she’s a rather special goat to us. She’s the oldest goat on our farm, and we’ve had her the longest, so she’s taken her place as herd queen, as I discussed in a different video (Rotational Pastures). She’s freshened (given birth) twice with us, and her daughters are Kili (a 2019 kid) and Biffur (a 2020 kid).
This isn’t why we need to discuss her, though.
As herd queen, she considers it her job to keep the herd safe. So, she seizes every opportunity she can to instigate the dogs. As in, she stands right next to them and just... stands there. She annoys them, I guess. One never understands the ways of the Pika.
She is also our cleverest goat by far. Every time that the cows get sweet feed, all the other goats rush to eat some with the cows. NOT PIKA. Pika sticks around and sees what else there is to munch on without other goats competing with her. The new hay bale, for example. She is truly a funny goat.
Bunkie performed the vocals, but she did have a hard time not laughing, especially because our camera-girl, Trie, kept making faces at her while we were recording. Oh, well. Bunkie did a great job singing and laughing, and I think this is one of our best music videos yet!
I (Kay-Kay) did the keyboard and audio editing using GarageBand, but the real spotlight of this video belongs to Trie.
Trie performed her first non-vocal part in a music video, playing the drums quite admirably, if I do say so myself. She started taking drum set lessons at the start of this school year, and she has learned a lot. So, great job, Trie!
That’s it for this post! Thank you for reading!
