Re-Recs for 4.3.11
Get Me Out Of Here - Remix (madshell) This is an amazing remix, I really like the original also but I love everything that was added to it. I think this would be great as a full length song.
In The Rain (with Robo_J) (The Morning Hollows) I love that there is so much to the song, it doesn’t need complex lyrics with all the beautiful instruments, I have to say I don’t even notice. This is so well put together and I love the guitar and piano.
Secret Sayings (ALittleNothing) I really like the style of this song, a lot could be done with it. A music video would be amazing I think.
dreamer (words by messyowl) (amferraro) He strikes again! I love messyowl’s lyrics and I am so glad that amferraro chose to make a song with them. I especially love how it goes from being so mellow to so upbeat in the chorus…I always end up bobbing my head.
Bake-Neko (Hatto) I really like the style of this painting. I think this image with the caption below it could be made into a really cool animation or at least a longer story of some sort.
Skeletal Lovers (Sparra) This is an awesome remix. I love the music choice it fits so well. A great example of how one thing or a couple of things can inspire a totally different result. Love it.
Today I Woke Up (mbhp4363) This poem is so sweet and I think it captures how it feels to be in love. This would be so great as a song or a reading with a video remix.
Secrets (remilyp) I really like this story and how mysterious it is from the start, you know something isn’t quite right so it keeps you guessing and waiting for what actually happened. I love that it is told from the point of view of a child. This would make an excellent video short or animation.
Rubberneckers (Metaphorist) This brings so many incredible images to my mind, I love it! I think it is good to explore the darker side of things in life and bring them out into the light. (I’m glad you decided to post this Sarah)
Dream Poem Thing (AeB) I love this, I think mostly because I feel this way a lot. In a lot of ways I’d rather just dream my way through life, then again...how do we know we aren’t really just dreaming. (Inception shout out!) I think this would make a wonderful song.
I found Jooshua's guitar track and it sounded like a simple/sweet love song. So, that is just what I made it out to be. I wanted to try something different, and I played some real drums and piano for once, hopefully that trend will continue. The lyrics are overly simple, perhaps somebody else may want to write up something better, but they work for what the song is.
And finally, and most importantly, the awesome Robo J was kind enough to add some kicking bass to the tune. Well, there you have it. Hope the mix sounds ok. I tried some new things.
A little Folktronic(?) piece of music@135BPM
I've had an idea for some kind of music video.
At first, someone is stepping out of a hospital door.
Then he starts running faster as the song progresses.
With the last refrain you can see him dancing with a lot of other people in a club or something. :o
Sounds weird enough but in my phantasy it's amazing. :)
your lyrics found me in a very low-fidelity mood :) i imagine this song being played by a very sweaty band in some hole-in-the-wall bar packed wall to wall with happy drunks.
(which, i'm guessing, wasn't your original vision when you wrote those words down. whoops!)
lyrics (copied from http://www.hitrecord.org/records/363976 )
you just close your eyes and sleep
like the avereage human being
you used to be a dreamer
you used to be a prayer
a late night microwaver
from mix of Melatonin and caffeine
coffee with old marshmellows and
pecan praline icecream
you used to be okay
with recycled wind
and my mental decay
talking inbetween the lines
reading all your old newspapers from 1999
but you're no dreamer to me
and i'm no dreamer to you
just dreaming about driving and crashing cars
when you used to dream about me, too
you're not the dreamer i thought i knew..
“a bakeneko will haunt any household it is kept in, creating ghostly fireballs, menacing sleepers, walking on its hind legs, changing its shape into that of a human, and even devouring its own mistress in order to shapeshift and take her place. when it is finally killed, its body may be as much as five feet in length. it also poses a danger if allowed into a room with a fresh corpse; a cat is believed to be capable of reanimating a body by jumping over it.”
I was inspired by Robo_J's track, and one thing led to another with this as the end result!
Today I woke up and took a breath of fresh air
Wrote this a while back but was a little nervous to post it cos it's a bit on the darker side. But loved Edward Shallow's Disgust video and it's on a similar theme so hey...here goes..
I can't get out of bed today
There is too much to do, too much to see
For my dreams, they take me far away
From this mundane life of mediocrity
