The Seatbelts, “Cosmic Dare (Pretty with a Pistol)”

I don’t watch reality television shows where singers mutilate popular music, because usually they just ruin it. And their voices often aren’t that great. If reality shows actually focused on people singing original music instead of cover tunes, I might be more inclined to watch.

Reynada Hill’s voice is a bit thin, but she makes the most of it with this particular original tune from the “Cowboy Bebop: The Movie”. I like the chord progression – it’s much more complex than most music you hear on the radio. If I remember correctly, it’s sung from the point of view of Faye Valentine, the selfish, maladjusted bounty hunter who loves fellow bounty hunter Spike, though she would rather die than admit it.
