Greetings all!

My buddy and I recently did a parody song about a common activity on a modern farm. The song is based on The Everly Brothers song "Crying In the Rain." I used Band In A Box to make the drum and bass tracks. I am singing harmony and playing piano, and my buddy is singing lead and playing acoustic guitar.

I used Reaper to mix the audio, and the video was edited with Windows Movie Maker.

The video features pictures and footage taken at my brother's farm, including some video taken with my recently acquired Mavic Mini drone.

A word of warning: there is some extremely mild profanity at the very end of the video, if you happen to make it that far.




I'll never likely see
A harvest time that won't trouble me
My crop's in the rain but I've got propane
So it won't be in vain
I'll be drying all my grain

If I wait for sunny skies
Harvest won't be done till next July
The grain might be tough but it's still dry enough
Though the combine might strain
I'll be drying all my grain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Always seem to make for misery
But since I've got my dryer
Propane I will acquire
And chase the damp from my canola seed

Next spring when my drying's done
I'm gonna wear smile and seed in the sun
I may be a fool but till then I shall fuel
My dryer with propane
I'll be drying all my grain

Thanks, Ember. It's been a bit of a running gag at rehearsals the last little while, so one day I decided to take it to the the next level and flesh out some lyrics. I was also itching to use my new drone for something, so it all worked out, I suppose.

Thanks for listening.

Great take on a classic Everly Brothers song. Harmonies are spot on.
