Yorushika – Burglar – Lisa the Tearer Vocal Cover
some commentary on Lisa the Tearer by his manager, The Overlord Bear/Jem De Ocampo
Now here’s something that’s more like Lisa the Tearer, especially considering how much of a knockoff he is.

We’re now on the Japanese cover performance, and while we only had to record one vocal track for this one, Lisa definitely got some more intense exercise with this. That, and with modern-day wizard Shigeru’s help especially, we allowed Lisa’s spectral powers a boost. The result is him actually sounding remotely sympathetic, though there’s also me balancing that out through the video.
And speaking of the visuals, Lisa’s been pushing for prettier looks lately. I’m allowing that for this video onward, because to be fair, he’d probably be more of a horror if he had such looks while still sporting that smoker voice and that sleazebag personality. Seriously, why did I not think of that before? Wait, maybe it’s just me trying to arrange my life properly while the bastard’s been terrorizing me every single day, whether directly or indirectly. That aside, I’d like to send my thanks to Nelko, this video’s Medium, for helping me kickstart this progression with more formality and seriousness.
As for the song, two-person band Yorushika’s “Burglar,” it’s not one of their singles, but I consider it one of my favorites, if not my favorite, off their Plagiarism album. I think I can sing it well, but as much as I hate to admit it, I think Lisa kinda has more soul that he can give to this song compared to the soul I can give to it. Pretty ironic, ain’t it? It really pisses me off.
So yeah, on with more days of dealing with the bastard. Video’s below, mp3’s here, and don’t forget to send support, especially consolation, to those two abovementioned reluctant lackeys of mine and to Rika, whose instrumental remake we used for this cover. Yeah, I’m really sorry again for dragging you guys into this.
