Honestly, that's gotta be one of the worst covers I've ever heard.  Painful!

I'm gonna take a guess and say this was very much meant to wind folks up. Still fairly subtle in some ways, though, so well done (or not well done if this isn't you).

Listening again, this is hilarious and a bit more obvious than I'd initially realized. Still, it got teh lawlz, so +1. Or not +1 if this isn't you.

RDZ, your profile picture is broke! Or at least, it is to me. Don't know whether all is cool your end.

I actually like the structural ideas this guy has. Reminds vaguely of what the song may have initially been conceived as on Brian's piano.

It belongs in a Subaru or Bank of America commercial. Not something that can be said for the original, so I suppose this is an improvement.

Reminds me of Beck's hilariously bad acoustic rework of The Velvet Underground's European Son.

I think it's cool, it's very poorly recorded though.

Cover versions are supposed to be different from the original. If he just tried to replicate Briain's DYLW he might as well not have bothered.

I like the fact it is an attempt at a consistent, flowing song. Also like use of the East or West Indies lyrics. I don't think I've heard that done before.

Don't upset him with your miserable comments. The more that BW music is shared and performed the better.

And no, I don't know who performed it and it's got nothing to do with me !!!

Well if we tell him it needs work, then he will improve it and make it better. I like the idea of an acoustic DYLW cover, this person just didn't do a great job in making one.

I tend to agree, but a cover should at least bear some vague musical resemblance to the original.  This one really doesn't.  If you replaced the lyrics with Mr. Tambourine Man or some other folk song, no one would even recognize the music as being Worms.  Basically, he just sang VDP's lyrics over some nondescript strumming. 

I'd really love to hear a great cover of Worms that incorporates all of the lyrics and maybe even that new melody line we hear on TSS.  I'm hoping that we'll hear more interesting SMiLE covers in the wake of the new set.

I tend to balk at notions that something "should" be a certain way, particualrly in relation to creativity.   I'd also suggest that there is a "vague musical resemblance", it's in the melody line being sung.

Even the vocal melody here isn't that similar, and if you take away the lyrics, no one would know that this was Worms.  Moreover, it doesn't evoke the feel of the original, nor does it reposition it in an interesting way.  Like I said, it's just VDP's words over strumming.  I'm not sure that this kind of stripped down acoustic approach to SMiLE makes much sense, given the palette of instruments that Brian was working with and the non-traditional song structures.  At least, it didn't in this case.

I saw that the performer has taken note of this thread on YouTube, noting the "Jackal-like disparagement".  He also mentioned that he tossed the cover off in a matter of minutes.  Well, it shows.

Yes- that would be great. I would like to hear a version of DYLW without the H&V theme and WITH the East or West Indies lyrics AND the new melody line from the 2011 Smile Sessions. I think it would flow really nicely.

Are you familiar with "re-mixed" versions of music by Aphex Twin ? That guy makes a lot of money doing what he does !
