  • Band contest idea: The best "Scary Dreams" cover.

    I was thinking about the fact that the only version of Scary Dreams that exist are the live bootlegs, and that not only does a studio version not exist, but a version with quality production value doesn't exist.

    So I started thinking; a lot of us have or are in bands. Why doesn't one of our bands record a cover of it? And "presto" a good idea for a contest. (No "prize" other than the respect of your peers, I guess)

    Who(se band) can produce the best cover of Scary Dreams?
    Do you want to encourage the Sabb Four to release a studio, demo, or official live version of "Scary Dreams" (the thus far unreleased song they debuted/performed live during their 2001 Ozzfest tour)? If so, consider becoming a fan of Scary Dreams on facebook by clicking the below link:

    I am with you on this very good Idea.....it would be great if someone could do a best version of Scary Dreams....I was also thinking about there are quite a few tribute bands out there and if we could all request for it...we might get one..
    Many friends out here too might be able create their own ....it would be great for us all...as nero has termed it well.

      You could just do a click track then get people from the forum to collaborate Nero [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

        someone should make a tab for this so the bands have somewhere to start for all the instruments Nero already posted the lyrics
        "I want to tell you, yeah
        How Good It Feels
        Sleeping here with you tonight
        And thatís for real"

          I think somebody already has- at least, I seem to recall reading something to that end in the "Scary Dreams" thread.

              Hah! Good luck on this one, guys. I'd recommend sheet music over tablature, though. Good thing PT, which is an awesome editor/site, has both! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

                There is no warning
                There is no time
                No resurrection
                Till we safely die
                There are no visions
                No paradise
                No superstition
                No Afterlife

                We just fade to black
                We just fade to black

                Won't be no future
                Won't be no pain
                Won't be no Satan
                No one to blame
                No children growing
                No getting old
                No one is dying
                No stories told

                We just fade to black
                We just fade to black
                We just fade to black
                We just fade to black
                You can't find tomorrow
                You can't touch today
                You don't feel no sorrow
                You're driving me insane

                I just can't wake from these scary dreams
                I'm locked inside for eternity
                I can't awake from these scary dreams
                I'm locked inside for eternity

                I just can't wake from these scary dreams
                I'm locked inside for eternity
                I just can't wake from these scary dreams
                I can't escape from these scary dreams.

                  Funny enough, somebody did a pretty good cover here, though I think the riff is slightly off.

                  Plus, I think the lyrics are slightly off. Here is what I understand the lyrics to be:

                  "There is no warning
                  There is no time
                  No resurrection
                  'Till we safely die
                  There are no visions
                  No Paradise
                  No Superstitions
                  No Afterlife
                  Refrain:
                  We just fade to black (x2)
                  There won't be no future
                  There won't be no pain
                  There won't be no Satan
                  No one to blame
                  No children growing
                  No getting old
                  No one is dying
                  No stories told
                  Refrain:
                  We just fade to black (x4)
                  You can't find tomorrow
                  You can't fight today
                  You don't feel no love
                  You're probably insane
                  I just can't wake from these scary dreams
                  I'm locked inside for eternity
                  I just can't wake from these scary dreams
                  I can't escape from these scary dreams
                  (Repeat twice)

                    I am doing this.
                    You tried to suppress me
                    But nothing holds me down
                    Just when you think you're happy
                    I come around

                        Anyone who is going to attempt this:

                        I have a pretty damned good patch for Amplitube that sounds like Paranoid Era Iommi tone. I will get it to you if you want it.

                        Also, those who want to do it but cannot sing: I will lay down a vocal track for you.

                        An example of both things (The Tone and my Vox)

                        (PS: I think I need to redo this vocal track, it's spotty in places, but you'll get the idea)

                          Might dabble with this idea if I find enough time! Cool concept by the OP.

                          That tone is indeed pretty close to that vintage, early 70's Iommi. Yet, I've never understood the glamoring for overtly vintage guitar tones. I think it's just nostalgia for the sake of nostalgia (disclaimer: I would take vintage tones over modern digitalized drivel many contemporary bands use, but that's another story.)

                          I'd take Iommi's tone on the H&H reunion tours or his new signature rig 10/10 times over this old setup.

                          That being said, this is a cool idea: http://musicaldistributors.co.za/la100bl/ If I had that much extra cash lying around I'd try to grab one of those babes

                            For me, the draw is "Hey, I'd like my track to sound like it could've been inserted between War Pigs and Paranoid without anyone noticing a difference."

                            Obviously, actual ability is going to give me away, of course, but eliminating obstacles is still a goal.

                              That's a different line of thinking, and fully "justifiable " I personally always love hearing classic songs played with modern tech and recording techniques. I love how big War Pigs or Fairies Wear Boots sound with Tony's current setup, given he is an even tighter player too nowadays as well.

                              It's only my view, but I think having those overtly "vintage" guitar tones and production values are usually driven by wrong motivators, i.e. some misinformed sense elitism and general distaste towards anything resembling modern But I bet Iommi would've loved to have the tech and tone possibilities of today back in the 70's

                              The golden tone is somewhere in the between anyway though, I'll say that!
