Crashing - tiny song
ppeppina Released Feb 28, 2012

I really love "crashing" by wirrow, and it inspired me to make this tiny song... (I know my pronunciation sucks but I trust you still understand :D) Enjoy<3

Lyrics:

This is it, we're on the edge of everything

We ran so fast we didn't see it coming

We kept on making lies, it was easy to believe in them

Now it's the time to pretend we didn't se it coming


This is it, we're on the edge of all we know

We didn't look back when we could, and now we can't

We kept on making promises, and we kept on breaking them

Now we're gonna pretend we didn't see it coming


Ladies and Gentlemen, we're crashing. Please enjoy the ride.

Hetki - A Moment (tiny song)
ppeppina Released Feb 07, 2012

I had this big inspiration a few minutes ago, so I just had to record it... It's a tiny song I just wrote (it lasts only 1min10sec), and, because it was important for me to get the lyrics right, it's in Finnish! Hahaa I wonder how it sounds to you...

(For those who didn't know - shame on you! - Finnish is the language we speak in Finland which is a country in Northern Europe. You know, the country Conan O'Brien loves.)

Here are the lyrics - in Finnish and in English... enjoy my bizarre language<3

-

On elämä kummallista tosiaan - Life is very strange indeed
Täällä yksi yössä laulaa vaan - Here this one is just singing
Vaikka pitäis mennä nukkumaan - Even though it's time to sleep

Mut aika on huijari, pelkkä haamu - But time is a cheater, only a ghost
Tääl voi olla yö, mut tuol jossain on aamu - It might be a night here, but somewhere it's morning
Siellä heräilen parhaillaan - I'm just about to wake up there

Nää sävelet ilmassa soi yksinään - these melodies fly alone in the air
Ei niistä kiinnostu yksikään - and absolutely no one cares
Kuluvat sekunnit mua säestää - the passing seconds are accompaning me

Tää hetki on mun, jo nukkuvat muut - This moment is mine, others already sleep
Talo ja taivas ja piha ja puut - The house and the sky and the yard and the trees
En vois pyytää enempää - I couldn't ask for more

Mut hetken kestää hetki vaan - But a moment lasts only for a moment
Se on ohi ennen kuin huomaatkaan - It's gone before you know it

A raindrop doesn't know it falls,
it doesn't know it dies.

A raindrop lives a happy life,
because it thinks it flies.

Will You Read To Me? (Song)
ppeppina Released Jul 03, 2012

I love andrewhip's poems, and since WILL YOU READ TO ME is one of my favorites, I wanted to turn it into a song... I hope you like it! You can find the poem in the resources, I remixed it a bit.

I also looove "monsters, mermaids, castles and kings" by sojushots, so I used it as custom icon!

Enjoy <3

Mademoiselle Noir (song)
ppeppina Released Jul 14, 2012

EDIT// I thought this could fit the theme of outsiders! :)

---

I have always loved sojushots' amazing illustration "let down your hair", and now it inspired me to write this song. It's a bit darker than the original story of rapunzel, just like the illustration. The same story, different ending! :))

I would love love love loove it if someone would add some accordian or strings to this song, you know, to build it up bigger, and then maybe in the final verses also some drums..... it would be awesome...... ;)

---

Here are the lyrics:

A man came across this old tower one day It was straight like from a book he once read He lifted his head up and saw this young lady And here's what the lady said:

CHORUS "Moi je m'appelle mademoiselle Noir Et comme vous pouvez le voir Je ne souris, ni ris, ni vis Et c'est tout ce qu'elle a dit"*

The man was so scared he could only run away He ran to the town and then said: "I just saw a lady with the longest dark hair And I think she's a living dead!"

The people, so scared, took their guns and their swords They ran to the tower and then They saw the pale lady and felt a great fear When they heard how she said it again:

CHORUS 

The people, they knew what this all was about She was clearly a demon from hell They decided to set her long hair on fire In the end it would burn her as well

But the lady was no demon she was a lonely soul Just like in that book they once read Still waiting for her prince while her hair was on fire The one last time she said:

CHORUS 

---

(*"Me, my name is miss Black And like you can see I don't smile or laugh or live" And that's all she said.)

Enjoy <3

Life Is Shit V5 (THANK YOU!)
ppeppina Released Aug 15, 2012

(…with more vocals, drums, percussion and horns! More stuff starts at 1.12!)

It's really hard to believe how far this song has come from where it started. You guys have uploaded so many amazing contributions, I never could have imagined this song would grow up this big!

While listening this song (which I have done quite many times lately!) I remember again and again why I love hitRECord. It all starts from that simple piano, and in the end it's something huge. It's unbelievable how so many people from all around the world are able to work together and create something big like this. I guess I could say "thank you internet!" but all this couldn't happen on any other website. So I say THANK YOU hitRECord!!!

I don't know if this is all done yet (when something is uploaded on hitRECord it’s never all done, anything can happen! And we’re still missing the tuba for example! :D), but I won't have that much time to work with this in a while so I thought I'd show you guys what we've got so far! Please, feel free to say what you think, does it need something more or something less, contribute your stuff and make your mix! And of course this is (obviously) just a rough mix! :)

I've listed all the resources, everything you hear on this track you can find from there (please let me know if I forgot to add someone!) I couldn’t possibly make every contribution fit into this mix, but I truly appreciate every single one of them, and I’m really thankful to everyone who spent their time on this!

"so here's to you this one last time"... THANK YOU! <3

p.s. that one final "so" at 3.26… the harmony… ahhh…

Another short loop experiment, this time about the loops of everyday life, about some of those meaningless and still so important little patterns and questions I find myself repeating day after day. Again, everything you hear is loopable, and I'll upload the stems first thing tomorrow for remixing purposes! :)


Enjoy!! <3


Lyrics:

1. "Wake up, drink a cup of coffee, spend a day doing what you do, and go to sleep again"

2. "I wish I had a cappuccino machine, basic coffeemaker isn't good enough for me!"

3. "Should I run? I could still catch that bus! No wait, it just left, I guess I'll be late again"

4. "Ohh, I'm so hungry, I would love to make some dinner, but I'm so damn tired I guess I'll just order some pizza"

La Belle et la Bête (song)
ppeppina Released Dec 19, 2012

I love sojushots' illustration "La Belle et la Bête", it's amazingly inspiring and adorably cute! (and he had me with the French title, I don't know what it is with French language that makes me want to sing! :D) The same story, different ending... This song is dedicated to all the Beasts out there with broken hearts, believe me, that Beauty wasn't good enough for you! ;)

I would've wanted to sing this one more time, (some lazy pronunciation and out-of-tuneness, sorry!) but I don't think I'll have time to do it 'cause I wanted to upload this before the holidays... So I might get back to this some day! Now just think of this more like story-telling with a melody, not singing a story! :D (plus: accordion, percussion, strings, xylophone... all remixing is, as always, more than welcomed!)

I wish you all the Happiest Holidays, ENJOY everything <3


Lyrics:

A long time ago, in a story so old
There was a beauty and and a beast, or so I’ve been told
They were these two strangers, two lonely souls
But it’s not what you think, no, here’s how it goes:

Lets start with the Beast, he was ugly and scary
Pathetic and poor, and horribly hairy
The outside was rough, but once he smiled
You could see that he had a heart of gold inside

The Beast loved a Beauty, this pretty little thing
She was the fairest of them all, and she could dance and sing
But unlike the beast whose love shined the best
She loved herself, never cared for the rest

La Belle et la bête (the beauty and the beast)
Quelle tragédie (what a tragedy)
Elle est comme le jour (she is like the day)
Il est comme la nuit (he is like the night)
Il est amoureux (he is in love)
Elle ne se soucie pas (she doesn't care)
Vont-ils mourir tout seule? (Will they die alone?)
On verra (We'll see)

One day the beast found the Beauty ”Perfection”
Sitting by the lake (making love to her reflection)
The Beast then decided that it was the time
To tell the pretty Beauty of his feelings inside

He stepped out from the shades with a flower in hand
Said bravely: ”My lady, the fairest in this land,
I might not be a prince, but my heart beats for you!”
Oh the Beauty just laughed, so cold, so cruel

”You smelly old fat hairy pig”, she said
”You thought I could love you? I’d rather be dead!”
Still laughing she turned and danced to her home
Leaving the Beast, heart-broken, alone

La Belle et la Bête…

While the Beauty lives all by herself still today
The Beast learned his lesson and changed his ways
He found that true beauty cannot be seen
And that things are most likely not what they seem

RE: loops (we can go back)
ppeppina Released Oct 05, 2012

I guess we all sometimes wish we could loop some parts of our lives and never let them end. But if you stay in a loop for too long, things start to slowly loose their edges, until everything is a big blurr and you're not sure anymore if you're at the beginning or the end, and before you know it, you're lost in the loop...

However, the not-so-deep musical part of my brains loves loops! :) and everything you hear on this track can be looped! you can find thse stems in the results, so if you feel like remixing, you can make your own loop remix of this song. And as always, it would be awesome to hear other people sining or playing along!

Enjoy <3


we can go back again

to where we began

and then when we reach the end

we can still pretend that

we can go back again...
