Cover Star: Brad Doggett Sings Trey Songz’s ‘I Invented Sex’

Published: Saturday 14th Aug 2010 by Trent

This week’s Cover Star is none other than Brad Doggett. The 22 year old singer from Washington D.C. put put his own unique spin on Trey Songz’s ‘I Invented Sex’ in a way that many would not have anticipated. Check out his performance below:

That was incredible! Instead of trying to imitate Songz’s vocal style, Doggett decide to go in a completely different direction both vocally and musically. Simply fantastic.

    Let me be the first to say…….WOW!!!!!!!! Take notes People….Because some performers today can’t find a note. I wish this young man much success and I hope he never loses his Spirit or Soul in this music industry.

    …. FLAT, DRY, STRIPPED-DOWN and DETACHED, therefore “WITHOUT BODY” ; Trent, YOU wanted know … !! I guess you think Trey, or those, highly-skilled musicians around him, hadn’t AlREADY thought, when originally-crafting THAT song, of an “acoustic-only accompaniment!”

    So what “grabs you” is the difference in the presentation of the same song, yes?

    Well, if you’re not “afraid of time,” then go and listen to Spandau Ballet’s ‘True’. It was released back in the 80’s, when, they were at THEIR peak: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e4WLdLNajs&feature=av2e

    … THEN, listen to THIS version by Joanna Wang: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tFt5-H2ocw <–Who'd have thought to use, not only an acoustic guitar, but also congo drums, and a piano at THAT pace/tempo, setting THAT mood! You wanna talk about "changing up" a song … COMPLETELY(?), then go and listen to BOTH versions!

    Oh, and Ms. Wang did the arrangement ..!! That means, she not-only had to know HOW to place the acoustic guitar, but also the piano, congo drums AND her sultry-dark vocals! Just do YOURSELVES a favor and go and listen to both versions, THEN come back and listen to THIS "brad person" ; THEN you'll appreciate TRUE musicianship …!!

    … I'll wait ….

    That was simply fabulous!!! I really liked the fact that he took that song and made it his own all the way through….Just goes to show that you don’t need the studio or the hype to be a great performer. All it takes is true passion for music and “RAW” talent of course… GREAT JOB BRAD!!!

    … I see you’re “taken” with the different rearrangement of an artist’s work. I’m not sure if you’re really into Roberta Flack, I am! But I’d like to, share with you, HER reworking of Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne. Here’s HIS(the original)version: beemp3.com/download.php?file=7342827&song=Suzanne

    … And Roberta’s rearrangement/reworking : beemp3.com/download.php?file=2978684&song=Suzanne

    And here, the lyrics(ENJOY):

    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she’s half crazy
    But that’s why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you’ve always been her lover
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind.
    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said “All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them”
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think maybe you’ll trust him
    For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind.
    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that you can trust her
    For she’s touched your perfect body with her mind.

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT …!!
