A little something for "You're Not the Only One".
Cameo by: the Unicycle Psycho
An interstitial video for the episode RE:1
Lots of people to thank on this one. Stay tuned.
I dig this scene that AW Clift animated. It reminds me of a western type of film with the bank robber and the "wanted" criminal poster, so I threw in an old-time sounding piano. The accordion is a sort of tip-of-the-hat to Ennio Morricone.
Key= c minor
Tempo is speeding up from 86 to 122. If you would like to know exactly where and by what magnitude it starts ratcheting up I can dig up that info.
First off I gotta say a HUGE thank you to Julz (bubbabuster) for bringing this song to life! This track was the first thing I ever contributed to hitRECord (http://www.hitrecord.org/records/932863) in hopes that somebody would lay down a vocal track. And Julz, you nailed it! I love what you did with it.
Working on this remix was a huge learning experience for me. I unintentionally set myself up for a wrestling match with the first version. I've been working on this track off & on for about a month now and I've fallen in and out of love with it so many damn times. There are almost 75 tracks, its ridiculous (stems available upon request but it might take me some time to get them up). But all in all, I can say that I love this track. I never feel truly finished with any of my work, but this is the closest I've come so far.
Thanks for listening.

This is a rough draft of the soundtrack I came up with for this awesome stop motion video (nice work messyowl).
When I first saw the video my immediate reaction was that this is a carefree girl defining herself according to her own terms. I thought an interesting story might be that there are two young people in love, maybe living in a small town, figuring out their lives together. Suddenly, she is presented with an opportunity to follow her dreams but she has to move across the country to do it. For what ever reason, he is unable to go with her. Fastforward a bit and now their phone conversations are more sporadic and less fulfilling (especially for him). This video is the image he sees of her when he closes his eyes and dreams about her. And this song is the song he feels.
Like I said, this is just a rough draft. The vocals could definitely be improved by somebody that can actually sing. I might re-record the guitar part to be more intimate and less boxy. But I wanted to get a feel for other people's reactions and see what kind of ideas you might have.

I used to do habitat restoration work in the National Park lands in the San Francisco bay area. When I got to work one day, my co-workers and I learned that somebody had let their pet turtle loose in the parks and it had been seen eating the endangered frogs we were trying to protect. It was our mission to keep a look out for the turtle and catch it so we could give it a good home somewhere outside of the parks (not eating our frogs). But with thousands of acres for the turtle to hide, it was just like the old needle in the haystack.
I thought we would have better luck if we sang to the turtle so I started singing this little song. When I got home that evening I told my fiance about it and she helped me write the rest of the song.
Oh, and we never did find the turtle...
Tortuga, tortuga ven aquí
Tortuga, tortuga ven a mí
¿Tortuga, tortuga a dónde fuíste?
Tortuga, tortuga estoy muy triste
Oh turtle, oh turtle please come here
Oh turtle, oh turtle come to me
Oh turtle, oh turtle where have you gone?
Oh turtle, oh turtle I'm very sad
Key = D maj.
Chord Chart= D///////////A///////////
Tempo = 176 BPM in 3/4 time
I started putting this beat together yesterday. One of the middle school students I work with wanted a beat to freestyle over. He's a big fan of Lil Boosie and 2 Chainz so I used their work as a model for it.
If you're an MC, singer, musician, beat maker, etc. Have at it! I can't wait to see what you can do for this record!
Tempo= 100 BPM
