Let me make it clear, YES I USED PITCH CORRECTION because I'm not a vocalist :S

So I've been working on this for about 2 months and suddenly got this inspiration to finish it the other day! Gorillaz is one of my favourite bands, and I'd had this idea on mind for months! I thought it would be a nice, simple song to re-create...boy was I wrong! There are so many little individual sounds in the original to make, and lots of vocal flairs too, but I think it turned out okay...perhaps except for the vocals :L

-----Track info-----

Up on Appleloosa hill
There's a special tree
Are you here with me?
Just looking out on the field, for the world to see

The ponies built up this town in a year or so
They're settlers, don't you know, love?
The Wild West music is playing
So come and dance with me
Come and dance with me

So call in Chief Thunderhooves
And the buffalo
It's time for them to go, now
They'll take their fresh apple pies as they run back home

The ponies and buffalo, live in harmony

Up on Appleloosa hill
Sits a pony
Just looking out on the field
Underneath that tree
Underneath that tree

Underneath that tree

Original, "On Melancholy Hill" by Gorillaz, released by EMI music
