Stephen and The Colberts CD by fadedsg Stephen and The Colberts CD by fadedsg
front and back cover of their greatest hits cd.

i was fiddling around with the raw tracks of "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)" and remixing it, then i thought, why not a cd cover that reveals all the members of stephen's "band"
yes, these are the people i imagined being in this fake 80s band.

i actually made a music video for the song. don't judge me. i have no life. nevertheless, i didn't alter the original charlene music video, but i was playing around with adobe after effects and made a full music video with all the members playing in the band. i'm not really quite finished with it yet. it will be a long time before i do, but hopefully, i will post it soon on youtube or something.

anyways, tell me what you think!


oh, and here's the mix i made from the raw files of the song. i didn't alter the music too much. i added a bit of distortion to the guitar and the bass and a light warm pad to the background melody. i tried to make it sound like the original as much as possible. you can listen to it here: [link]
the volume isn't good, but you can hear stephen's voice more clearly than the original recording that was shown on the show.

Oooh, very nice idea. They all look very classy with a black and white pic like that. :D I like the effects on the right pic too.

The three of them should really make a band..:P that would be too much greatness for me to handle.

bwahahaha. Sir Dr. Stephen T. Colbert :rofl:

this is sooo epic! why aren't they in a band yet?!?! do they realize the potential?!?!?!

along with Stephens songs, i can totally see them playing songs like "God Bless America" and patriotic war songs like "Okie from Muskogee". or maybe a musical version of the Pledge of Allegiance :iconamericanflagplz:
