U2 – One

U2 – One

For this week’s Piano Cover, we got a classic song from one of the best bands of all time. Achtung Baby has always been my favorite U2 album (with All You Can’t Leave Behind being a close second), and “One” is its emotional center, both beautiful and heartbreaking. I only hope I did this timeless song justice.

Leave a comment, or hit me up on twitter at @davidbaronmusic to vote for next week’s video:

1) Boys Like Girls (feat. Taylor Swift) – Two Is Better Than One
2) Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
3) Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road

Peace,
David

Open My Heart by Bryan Bros Band feat. David Baron

Hey everybody,

Yesterday was a big day for the Bryan Bros Band! Bob and Mike were featured on 60 Minutes–if you didn’t blink you might have seen David in there for about half a second ;)–and we released our new single, “Open My Heart.” The song is a tribute to Andre Agassi, and was inspired by his book Open. We were really moved reading about Andre’s trials and tribulations growing up in the world of tennis and playing on the tour, and wanted to come out to support him especially when so many criticized the behavior he detailed in his book. We believe it takes a lot of guts to confess the things you’ve done, and that a lot of people can learn and be inspired by Andre’s courage and fighting spirit in the face of adversity.

Check out the book (it’s a great read), and we hope you enjoy the song that was inspired by it.

Thanks for your support,
Bob, Mike, and David

“Open My Heart” by Bryan Bros Band Featuring David Baron
Written by Bob Bryan, Mike Bryan, and David Baron
Performed by David Baron

Lyrics:

I thought I was afraid
I thought I had no place to go
I was feeling so ashamed
So I shut my heart and closed the door
And it feels like baby lately I’m on my own

All the words I couldn’t say
All the feelings bottled up inside
They’ve been weighing down on me
It’s a truth I can no longer hide
And it feels like lately I’m barely hangin’ on
And it feels like lately I’m barely even here

I gotta open my heart
I gotta open my heart and let love in
I gotta open my heart
I gotta open my heart and let love in

Cause I’ve done some things
I know I’m not supposed to
And I’ve done some things
I’m ready to own up to
To open my heart and let love in

Now I walk the halls I raised
And see hope on the faces inside
All the lives that I can change
Now I can hold my head up high
Cause it feels like baby I found my way back home
And it feels like baby I finally see so clear
I gotta open my heart

I gotta open my heart and let love in
I gotta open my heart
I gotta open my heart and let love in
Cause I’ve done some things
I know I’m not supposed to
And I’ve done some things
I’m ready to own up to
To open my heart and let love in

Train – Hey, Soul Sister

Train – Hey, Soul Sister

Hey guys,

So pumped for this week’s video! This is my 2nd video (after “Fireflies”) to feature piano, guitar and vocals each in 1 take, and an awesome video edit by my buddy, bandmate, and history-making #1 doubles tennis player Bob Bryan.

I always enjoyed the music by my fellow San Franciscans in Train, and like the rest of the world, their orchestral 2001 hit “Drops of Jupiter” stayed in my head for months. I’m happy to see this perfectly catchy new single tearing up the charts, which was so much fun to learn and cover.

Hope you enjoy,
David

Ryan Adams – Two

Ryan Adams – Two

A simply beautiful song, one of my favorites. If you enjoy this tune, check out Gold and Heartbreaker, two early Ryan Adams albums that are up there with Springsteen and Billy Joel among my all-time favs.

See ya next week,

At our CD Release Parties in California this February for our debut album Let It Rip, #1 world-ranked men’s doubles tennis team Bob and Mike Bryan and I had some fun mashing together the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” with our single “Let It Rip”. Here’s Bob and I playing an acoustic medley of the two songs in San Francisco while the Bryan Bros were in town playing the 2010 SAP Open.

Lady Gaga – Bad Romance

Lady Gaga – Bad Romance

Hey guys,

Thanks so much for tuning in each Monday to check out my new Piano Covers! Last week’s cover of “Fireflies” was the most popular one yet–so cool to see this series taking off.

This week’s cover is special to me because strictly musically speaking, it may be my favorite video yet. Lady Gaga is a woman of tremendous talents (not least of which are outside the realm of music), but I wanted to showcase her ability to simply write a beautiful song independent of its production, her fashion sense, and her ability to make headlines. I tried to interpret the melody and chords to make this one my own, and I hope you dig it.

Peace,
David

P.S. Got a special guest on next week’s video, be sure to tune in!

Owl City – Fireflies

Owl City – Fireflies

Hey guys,

Really excited about this week’s video! I recorded the piano, guitar, and vocals each in 1 take, then Bob Bryan (yes, that Bob Bryan) edited all the video together. Huge thank you to Michelle Alvarez and Bob, who can now ad cameraman and film editor to his ridiculously awesome resume.

I think “Fireflies” is an uncommonly beautiful modern radio hit, and in my cover, I wanted to break down the song’s arrangements to show how the music and melody could shine on their own without any of the original version’s production flourishes (which are amazing in their own right, by the way). I’m psyched with how it came out, and think Bob’s really cool video edit does well to show how this cover was conceived.

Oh, and next week’s gonna be a doozy.

– David
