Live Performance of "Deadman's Gun" by Ashtar Command from the Red Dead Redemption Soundtrack

Posted on August 16 2010, 4:57pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games, Music

Our friends from Ashtar Command just posted this video of a live performance they recorded of "Deadman's Gun" from the Red Dead Redemption Soundtrack.  This live rendition embellishes upon the original acoustic version found on the game's official soundtrack with a full string section, piano and multiple backing vocalists.  The crew even posted up the lyrics for the song for those that want to lip synch along.  Good stuff.

                  Beautiful work for a beautiful game.

                  I made a RDR video myself set along to the Rawhide theme done by the Blues Brothers if anyone is interested...

                            The female violinists and cello player are hot.... The RDR sountrack is awesome, I burned it to my 360 harddrive so I can listen to it while playing RDR, I also have a custom soundtrack for RDR with heaps of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and K-DST and K-Rose from SAN ANDREAS. It goes great with it.

                            VIVA ROCKSTAR GAMES!

                                  this is gonna make me cry..............no one messes with my emotions no one!!! not only did i was like wtf!! in the ending but i was like is this one of the worsest most brilliant endings on all of gaming history never been done before by anyone......i don't know wat to make off it?? R* once again im not only amazed that this #1 company in the world will do this but in such a genius way that im not sure if i should be sad mad happy or all? let's just hope another game or episodes about u know who comes out and grows up looking like u know who..oh and landon ricketts..and it comes out in a disc like gta and add some cars since u know who got older in the even more modern west. and btw my soundtrack still don't have it =( this is the only masterpeace i need for my red dead collection...oh and my candle and cards dice and stuff that i still will order in 2 week's

                                    Im having a serious problem with cheating on poker. i know already about buying the elegant suit and keeping the arrow in the middle of the bar, but every time i do it, i get caught. i checked youtube and copious other sites and they just say keep it in the white. the youtube vids show the people like halfway in between the red and white and they are still not getting caught. WTF? I noticed they all are Xbox 360 and im PS3, and that people commenting those vids say that they couldnt do it, were ps3 alsp. So is it a PS3 problem or am i SOL?

                                      I'm so glad I pre-ordered the Limited Edition that came with the soundtrack. It really is amazing and I still listen to it just about every day on my MP3 player.
