Moving right along to day three… this time it’s the 80s hair metal classic “18 and Life” by Skid Row.  Here’s the original:

Pretty awesome, right? Now there may be a few of you out there saying “Skid Row, a one-hit wonder?  I don’t think so.  What of ‘Youth Gone Wild’?  What of ‘I Remember You’?”  To such parties, I would suggest they review rule 2 from the first post in the challenge.  To sum up, if enough people think a song or a band is a one-hit wonder, then it is, more or less (at least for the purposes of this nine-day journey we’re all taking together.)  Plus, this song is kind of sweet, and I wanted to see if I could do a version that worked.

Does it?  I don’t know – but it was fun to put together.  Check it out.

And here’s the clip (I’m going to start varying up the backgrounds soon, I promise!)

(This tune was suggested by Michael J. Smith, who earned himself a signed copy of 27 Second Set #1 for his trouble.  You could be next!  Find me on Twitter or Facebook to suggest your own!)
