Hey peeps so I'm completely new to this forum (and really to music composing in general), so I thought I'd post something to get some feedback. This is my first "real" song I've written, and I've based it off what I know about music theory and choral music. I have no idea if its any good at all, I just kinda went for it. Any and all critique is welcome, because I don't know what I'm doing and I need to know if what I'm writing makes any sense. The recording is entirely synthesized in SATB and I've got no lyrics, but I'll work on that later.
This is a song about fleeing the 9-5 life in pursuit of a meaningful one. When we were writing this song, we wanted the arrangement/structure to coincide with the song's theme; breaking the standard mold. The result was a combination of several genres with one uniform direction. I'd very much like to hear your thoughts/advice on this song! Please note: This is only one song, but it's separated into two tracks that flow together. I posted the two tracks together as a set on Soundcloud. I'm well on my way to eclipsing The Moon Should they let me come home, I'll take you Are you sick are you tired of living inspired by love of a game? They donâ€™t let me see the sun â€˜round here too much anymore Keep me somewhere safe until Iâ€™m rotten to the core And I donâ€™t understand if Iâ€™m supposed to Like it when they tell me Iâ€™m so good at what I do... How much sense does that make to you? Baby donâ€™tcha know that brain of yours is overrated? Thereâ€™s a million carbon-copy-people glad to show ya how to make it Oh, take it slow, put your hands down, try to simmer Nothing half as big as Texas needs to sport another lonely Vineyard My oh my, catch me if you can I can learn to fly higher than you can Sleeping on a rainstorm dancing on a cloud I can touch the sky from here And I can hear the crowd And Iâ€™m under the impression that Youâ€™re only half-rated to the ground Are you afraid of falling down? Iâ€™m scared of stalling out Old Mister Sunshineâ€™s smiling A million miles away Hey, Iâ€™m breaking out Yeah, Iâ€™m escaping now Fluorescent prison cells Cardstock paper-chains Nothingâ€™s keeping me held down Iâ€™m rolling out, you catch me if you can My oh my, catch me if you can I can learn to fly higher than you can My oh my, Iâ€™d die if life was nothing more Than pushing pencils, life is short, friend Catch me if you can! This alarm clock is my favorite broken thing I wonâ€™t be alive on time until it learns to sing Whatâ€™s it like to like to live inside a broken record now? Shake a leg, boys and girls, Iâ€™LL SEE YOU IN SOCAL. Old Mister Sunshineâ€™s smiling A million miles away I miss him more each time I lie Fluorescent prison cells Cardstock paper-chains I swear Iâ€™ll live until I die I can fly! I can fly! (My oh my) And donâ€™t you try to stay me (Catch me if you can) I know Iâ€™ll live â€˜till I die (I can learn to fly) Someday (My oh my) Weâ€™ll take the sun and (Iâ€™d die) Youâ€™ll know weâ€™re born for the skies (If life was nothing more) So, Catch me if you can!
