  1. I made music using the crying laughing emoji! 😂 This is my first attempt at creating a MIDI drawing that actually sounds good. It ended up being an epic orchestral piece with jazzy chords! What do you think? 👌🏼💯🔥
  2. pop demo

    Hi everyone, Never got this song critiqued. I wrote it, came up with the melodies and harmonies and laid down the vocals for the demo (I'm not a singer or rapper). Lyrics below. Let me know what you think in general. I'm just starting to look for pop producers to work with so I'm trying to figure out what songs could attract them to want to collab with me. Thanks in advance! Under The Moonlight LYRICS Verse 1 Hey babe I’ve been looking at you Doing your thing the whole night Had to say something before You walked out my life I don’t got no lines I’m just hoping that I’m your type Cause you’re my type Yeh, eh Eh, eh Pre-chorus One dance Is all I need girl To show Show you my world And maybe We’ll fall in love tonight One dance Is all I need girl To show Show you my world And maybe We’ll fall in love tonight Chorus 1 Under the moonlight (5x) Verse 2 Come with me I can see a smile Coming in It’s starting to show All you gotta do’s take my hand And we can go, oh Get lost in the moment While we’re dancing real slow Real slow Oh, oh Oh, oh Pre-chorus Chorus 1 Bridge Ready Hold on me real steady Don’t worry bout a thing Cause I’mma treat you like a lady Like a diamond Girls like you It’s hard to find them You got something special And that’s why you outshine them It feels Like this right here was meant to be This magic between you and me It’s like we’re starting our story Starting our history Chorus 2 Under the moonlight (9x)
  3. Hi, This is my original song, "Make you stay". I only joined Soundcloud two days ago and am not very skilled at recording/mixing but would love any feedback you can give (Lyrics, melody, structure, quality, catchi-ness, instruments, arrangement, tempo, voice etc). Thank you in advance https://soundcloud.com/alexxxiii/make-you-stay Lyrics: So this is how the story ends Decided we were better off as friends The way you look tonight with your sorry eyes and your goodbye smile Nothing I can do to make you stay Same old you and same old me Beginning to see things differently From the moment that we met you were saying things that I won't forget There's nothing I can do to love you less Am I wasting time trying to make you feel the same So I'll try and try change my mind cause I can't change the rules of your game but I'll still try Can we go back To when we were more than friends Can I be the one you love again Cause I can't bear to watch you walk away Darling I would do anything to make you stay Such a feeling such a rush It started off as little more than a crush and it's the way you look tonight with your sorry eyes and your goodbye smile there's nothing I can do to change your mind Am I wasting time trying to make you feel the same So I'll have to change my mind cause I can't change the rules of your game but I'll try So can we go back to when we were more than friends can I be the one you love again cause I can't bear to watch you walk away darling I would do anything to make you stay Back to when we were more than friends can I be the one you love again cause I can't bear to watch you walk away darling I would do anything darling I would do I would do I would do anything I would do I would do anything to make you stay
  4. So this is a song I wrote that has a more "Future Bass" vibe to it but still is hopefully catchy. Would love to hear what you think! Stars, we’re the stars in the sky above, we make a constellation of love. And no matter where we’re going, we’re glowing. Our names up on the marquis, we live our life on a tv screen. We’re just living like stars We’re living like stars. Oh we’re just living like stars. Stars, our songs are playing on the radio There’s cameras flashing wherever we go. Now that we’re here we’re gonna run this show, Yeah we’re stars so we better glow. Our names up on the marquis, we live our life on a tv screen. We’re just living like stars We’re living like stars. Oh we’re just living like stars. The universe is full of darkness, imagine if the world was starless. No way to see the beauty that surrounds us. Everything’s gonna be alright cause the stars will bring the light. We’re just living like stars. We’re living like stars. Stars, we dance, in the dark of the night We laugh and we love and we doing alright Oh we’re just living like stars.
  5. r&b

    I wrote this originally because I was inspired by Aaliyah's original Back And Forth track. After I recorded this song it became my literal reality and I called my engagement off. I poured a lot into this song. But what do you think? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzVzPodfYCG-WDA1MzlDcGN6ck0/view?usp=drive_web
  6. Please critique my song that I wrote when my father passed away recently...it's a rough draft and is changing constantly. I recorded it with my laptop's built in mic, so the quality is not good, but I am in the process of trying to aquire some decent recording equipment. I never have really sang or played much in front of people, so a little nervous I guess. Just want to get some unbiased feedback on my voice really, lol...be honest though!! Thanks! Here are the lyrics: Sometimes I think of life And how it can be so tough Sometimes I ask God why Then I realize Jesus, I need you I can't stand on my own Jesus, I need you I can't make all alone My Father died in my arms I can't explain that pain How can I move on I just fall down and pray Jesus, I need you I can't stand on my own Jesus, I need you I can't make all alone The river will never be the same He always tied his Grandkid's hooks Played his guitar by the fire While he gave us silly looks Jesus, I need you I can't stand on my own Jesus, I need you I can't make all alone Fishing Pole Cane Man That's what some kids named him He always had it in his hand I really miss that man Jesus, I need you I can't stand on my own Jesus, I need you I can't make all alone Jesus, I thank you I'm glad my Dad is there with you Jesus, I thank you I'm glad my Dad, he's there with you
  7. This is the 2nd in a series of new videos/articles, intended to give a glimpse behind the creative curtain at the how’s & why's of songwriting. For this installment, we’re flashing back to 2002. “Not Quite The Same” was my attempt at a different kind of 9-11 song. It's one of several tracks that were written & recorded, but never promoted or made available online. The Idea My songs typically evolve from one of 4 starting points: - a chord progression - a riff/pattern - a section of melody - a central theme In this case, the starting point was a combination of 2 elements. • a central theme – 9/11 and a different approach to the topic • a basic chord progression, which seemed a good fit for the subject matter Subject Matter Long before this track was finished, the onslaught of 9-11 songs from major artists had begun. Typically, they were overtly patriotic....cliché ridden attempts to take commercial advantage of our national tragedy. At least that's how I saw them. Don't get me wrong....I recognize that artists need to make a living. But attempting to profit from tragedy is right near the top on my list of unacceptable behaviors. Depending on the genre & artist, they evoked feelings of sorrow & pity, or testosterone & anger. Songs about "why us" or "how dare you"! Both attempting to cash in on existing emotions ....neither striving for anything productive. Bottom line - If I was going to write a 9-11 song, it wouldn't be like that! My messages would be different! More like............ - Nothing here was quite the same after 9-11. We shouldn't expect it to be. - We'd allowed ourselves to believe that it couldn't happen to us. Other counties....yes, but not us! That was a flawed assumption. - Freedom isn't free....it has a cost. Hopefully those thoughts come across in the song. Lyrics Something's changed Kind of strange Lots of talk.....speculation & doubt Can we find comfort when....life feels inside out? History's shown Safety at home We've assumed it would always be so Life has no guarantees....guess we never know On we go! (Refrain) Just not quite......the same Until we realized It could be us that died We never recognized....it could happen here! Buildings fell September Hell We know now...what we didn't know then Freedom comes at a cost...and payment never ends! (Refrains) Just not quite.....the same! (repeat) copyright 2002-Tom Hoffman. Song Structure Introduction / Verse / Verse / Refrain / Bridge / Verse / Refrain / Ends with variation on a 2nd refrain Musical Fundamentals The song is set in the key of G minor. At its core, a basic rock arrangement ....single rhythm guitar, lead guitar, drums, bass guitar, lead vocal and a single harmony vocal on the refrain sections. BPM – 138 The rhythm guitar part consists of "power chords". For those who don't know, power chords are 2-note intervals....possessing neither major nor minor characteristics. Strictly a root note with a 5th on top. The bare-bones framework of this song is a I-IV-V progression. That being the case, I did what I could to make it my own. Unusually timed chord changes & slides help to set it apart from similar progressions. At least, that was my intent! The intro, verse & refrains sections are strictly power chords. The bridge section is not. Since bridges are meant to sound different, the rhythm guitar part shifts to full chord forms. My trusty Gibson SG was used for all the guitar work A number of elements contribute to the unique feel of that bridge section. I've already mentioned the change in chord structure, but there are others. - The drum part shifts to a half-time feel. - Both the emotion of the vocal & the lyrical meter change. Final Production Notes By the time 2002 rolled around, I had converted to a digital setup. A Tascam PortaStudio 788 was my tool of choice.

  8. Hi everyone! I'm new to this blog, and will start reviewing others' songs, but in the meantime, would you be willing to check out this song I just recorded? It's only the first bit, but yeah! Thank you! https://soundcloud.com/jennifer-doll-8169456/mr-fox Lyrics: When Mr. Fox took my hand He stared in my eye And said it's better not to have a plan He came from over hills And stumbled over rocks Never relying on those old ticking clocks Cause they always break And lead you astray It's better not to have hope In a far away place
  9. Hey there everyone, I have recently started a project back up called SEVEN DAY SONGS. Writing recording and performing a song once a week. This is song # 2 (this weeks song) Called YOU GOTTA STAY YOUNG Comments Welcome. Thanks for having a listen. LYRICS: North Easton www.northeaston.ca YOU GOTTA STAY YOUNG words and music by North Easton 021516Copyright V: We stood there in the driveway His hand against my shoulder He looked me in the eyes Said boy when you get older You’re gonna feel the years inside Creep a little closer everyday V: You’ll have good times, you’ll have bad And the wrinkles on your skin Are the memories that you’ve had And the truth of where you’ve been And every scar you ever earned Is a lesson that you learned along the way Then he smiled at me and he said son…you gotta stay young. C: You gotta climb a tree…you gotta skip a rock You gotta fall asleep…underneath the stars You gotta dance outside…somewhere in the rain You gotta cross your heart And when all your yesterdays have come and gone. You gotta stay young V: And I watched him work away the days I saw that look carved on his face Every single time that he came home He’d fall into his favourite chair Spend his nights just sitting there Telline me the things I didn’t know Then he’d smile at me and he’d say son You gotta stay young C: You gotta climb a tree…you gotta skip a rock You gotta fall asleep…underneath the stars You gotta dance outside…somewhere in the rain You gotta cross your heart You gotta find a hill…race up to the top Down the other side…you gotta run until your feet can’t stop You gotta climb a tree…you gotta skip a rock You gotta play for fun And when all your yesterdays have come and gone. You gotta stay young Breakdown : Oh Yeah son…Oh Yeah son… You don’t wanna wait till the sun goes down For anyone interested in last weeks song. Here it is.
  10. So I have two songs on the internet right now and here they are on my soundcloud which I will link in a second. I wrote these songs very differently, Brand New Company was a melody and then I found a chord progression to fit it, and I mixed and matched different vocal patterns and lyrics to the same rhythm. It worked out really well but there wasn't a lot of diversity, but all in all I think it is a good song (Check it out.) All for you was written on the guitar and then I matched lyrics and a melody to it, actually a few melodies, just too different strumming patterns. The chorus is the only part where I actually change the chord progression, and I like that because its the catchiest part so it is nice that there are changes and it sounds good together, it's almost happy but still matches the songs! That was just a little insight to how I have been songwriting, there are obviously much more songs too come, if you are interested please check out my youtube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyYKBCayJ0ap2v6bvtvVZXw And my soundcloud for studio versions! -
  11. Hi guys, this is an old song of mine called "Free", which i rerecorded and uploaded the lyrics to in the video, hope you enjoy
  12. First song I'm sharing here, hey everyone! Nothing professional by any means I just like to create my artistic feel in my lil bedroom. I know the quality isn't the best, but I more so focus on the writing and the vibes of my songs + video clips I like to fool around with. Let me know what you think? i am the wind i am the trees i am a man that you could be i’ve seen it all from the sea drowned a hundred times but now i’m free there is a home upon that peak i’ve seen a man that you used to be he was writing a song right on that tree carved my skin now i can breathe hallelujah i’m running free down in the valley hallelujah you sick old child we don’t want your kind here i am the ghost of your fathers past i am the roots of all your bad and i am a mother to this land i am a child and i am scared i don’t want you to fear what you can hear we don’t your kind around here please forgive our minds around here i will never come back home i will never be alone i’ll remember this old place before it burnt down all away hallelujah i’m running free down in the valley hallelujah you sick old child we don’t want your kind here
  13. Here is the new updated version, with some tweaks: I am starting to work on my orchestral composition skills, feel free to critique it as hard as you can(Only if you want to!) My intent was to make a very Film-Score-esq kind of piece, as I am considering learning more about film scoring.
  14. Hey everyone - check out my recently written song "Dry Tears" Any and all feedback welcomed Don't look back It's alright Together we'll Win the fight Do not turn and run away Come back, Face the new day Dont go on and on and on and on and on and on alone Though my tears are dry I'll never again wonder why And we'll one day unite In arms at once beneath the sky
  15. Here is a link to our new song, let us know what you think (would be great to have some feedback).
  16. My friend and I (music + video) are doing these little projects for fun, maybe once or twice per year. When we find some free time in our boring and tough everyday lives... I have a few songs on my youtube channel, but I have never made any advertisement. This new song is a little bit better than my other stuff. Especially in techical processes of home recording. It's still very very amateurish. Also, the video by my friend is made with lot of effort and time. Please, without some great expectations, look at this video, and have fun. There are english subtitles available. Best viewed in 1080p HD. Sincerely Yours, music - Josip Motik video - Adam Baričević (http://www.adambar.com)

  18. It's been a while but here's a new one. Hot wheels, hot babes concrete. it feels so good It looks so real. Brown hair, high heels Fast cars, cold steel. While my motor runs We better seal the deal. I want it. I need it. High speed gotta win this race. My gasoline Adrenaline Pumping through my veins. Burning my engine down I better go. I better leave this town. You gotta blame it on fever. You set the road on fire. Your wheels keep choking on smoke. You're drifting.You're out of time. No food. No bank account. But I feel all right Got chicks around. A few bucks to eat. I know it sucks to be down on the ground. (on the ground) Push the pedal to the metal High speed. Gotta win this race. My gasoline Adrenaline Pumping through my veins. Burning my engine down I better go. I better leave this town. You gotta blame it on fever. You set the road on fire. Your wheels keep choking on smoke. You're drifting.You're out of time.
  19. Hey Everybody....It's been a while since I've been on here. I've had things going on like surviving the cold winter and taking care of personal business and such. Anyway...here's a song I wrote about my outlook on life...I wrote it after scrolling my news feed on facebook and reading all the drama on there and people complaining about their petty little problems....let me know what you rekon... hope it doesn't sound too preachy! IT'LL SHINE WHEN IT SHINES (The Cove Philosophy) they say good things come to those who wait don't wait around all your life that's like cutting down a mighty oak with just a pocket knife when you're dealt a bad hand and you cry how life's unfair cut the cards with my regards it's your own cross to bear don't worry 'bout tomorrow leave yesterday behind don't let your quest for a piece of the pie compromise your peace of mind don't hold a grudge don't be quick to judge you know that's so asinine and don't complain about the rain it'll shine when it shines life ain't no playground and it damn sure ain't no game you gotta own your mistakes never try to pass the blame whenever you lose your way look for another way to go and when you ride that storm out you'll enjoy the petrichor repeat chorus written and arranged by Toney Wright Stu Pendergast-lead guitar

  21. Still working on this one, looking for some feedback. Ms. Lonely's Foregone Conclusion There's a broken spout on the fountain of youth, The worlds gone mad it seems Ms. Lonely's got the petticoat blues And she's been looking for a boy to scheme Jack-o-diamonds thought she was his ace of spades So he jumped off the limb And now he waits for the laughter to fade To get up again Chorus: And when he was falling, falling He smiled like a windswept fool But the blues kept calling, calling And he unwound from his spool, lost his cool So quite coldly left Ms. Lonely Between two minds there's a wall to climb A constant stinging fear That even though you can see the signs Your way can quickly veer Quite intrigued Ms. Lonely dreamed Of a Jack-o-Diamonds in the rough He smiled wide, but deep inside His past became a crutch Chorus: "There's a missing piece to his puzzled mind", Ms. Lonely said again She could never hear his song Let alone comprehend That between the lines of a broken heart Is a fire that greets the wind He may have toppled down the hill But he'll get up again Chorus: By Scott Lee
  22. Hey you guys, I just wanted to share this little song I'm working on, I want to hear your impressons about this one. Please keep in mind that it's only a demo recording, and I am not a professional! Maybe one day https://soundcloud.com/jackhalkabar/dream-away-the-pain Thanks for your time!

Marjorie cooked and looked after her guests, Her cousin Dan poured out coffee and swept. Open all day and half the night Marjorie's Place had a neon light, said Marjorie's Marjorie's Place Marjorie’s Open till late! Marjorie died in December oh four Dan couldn't cope and he bolted the door Ev'ry one came when they laid her to rest Marjorie's Place had always been blessed Marjorie's Marjorie's Place Marjorie’s Open till late! I came home got the keys in two thousand ten At the counter her ghost stood where she's always been She smiled at me when I walked right in, I said, “Marjorie's Place, open again!†Marjorie's Marjorie's Place Open, Open till late!
  24. Hi all, I've been away for most of this year and find myself back home again. Earlier in the year I stumbled onto a website that had a lot of information about an ancestor of mine who was transported to Australia for the heinous crime of shoplifting. Times were tough! She avoided a neck stretch because the "victim" took pity on her being seven months pregnant and devalued the stolen items (lute silk) below the capital threshold of the day, 25 shillings. She was placed on board the ship hours after giving birth and mother and babe sailed for Britain's newest colonial acquisition aboard Lady Juliana in March 1789. While this is not her story, it is her baby's... (My singing hasn't improved while I was away...) Sweet Annie Kel Abbott Born in Newgate Prison, Never tasted Freedom's air, Shipped off with your mother, To who but God knows where. You were your mother's blessing, A joy to have around, For fifteen months of sailing To Port Jackson, Sydney Town. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins You never had a chance, Not to run wild and free in a meadow at play, Nor to kick up your heels in a dance. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai-ay. Landed on a foreign shore You lived on mama's hip She gave you love and everything you knew aboard the ship. The men stayed clear of Mary And she didn't mind at all, She had her precious Annie And needed nothing more. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins You never had a chance, Not to run wild and free in a meadow at play, Nor to kick up your heels in a dance. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai-ay. Three ships came but two weeks hence That sealed your infant fate. Playing round the hospital Soiled blankets, floors and plates... Typhus doesn't give a damn, It kills without a care, Ten days of fever later Shallow grave and mumbled prayers. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins You never had a chance, Not to run wild and free in a meadow at play, Nor to kick up your heels in a dance. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai-ay. No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai sweet Annie Higgins No too-ra-lai, too-ra-lai-ay. https://soundcloud.com/kelabbmusic/sweet-annie
