The Stanton-Walsh Rule: Don’t Be Shy

The Stanton-Walsh Rule strikes again. This time it’s Don’t Be Shy, as written and performed by Cat Stevens for the 1971 film Harold and Maude. The electronic backing track was made with Renoise, fact fans.


The Stanton-Walsh Rule: Everyone Says I Love You

The Stanton-Walsh Rule is my new side-project, dedicated to covering songs from classic films. It’s named after Roger Ebert’s theory that “no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad.”

Having tackled Rita Hayworth’s signature tune, I set my sights on the Marx Brothers. Everyone Says I Love You was originally sung by Zeppo Marx in the 1932 film Horse Feathers. Throughout the film, variations are performed by Chico, Harpo and Groucho.
