I think you should definitely do it - the lyrics sound so much more authentic when you sing it. My attempt is passable at best and you can tell I'm struggling with my cold.
I comped (cut and pasted) the version I posted from multiple takes and used compression/ vocal processing to even it all out so don't stress about being able to do the whole song in one go - I pretty much did it a verse at a time then assembled it to fit with a few extra "is the wind to blame" 's dropped in
Were not doing it live ( which is the best fun) so it's all smoke and mirrors - " ignore that man behind the curtain etc etc...."
Thanks for your kind words !
