  1. Hey! This is my first time posting here, and I'm looking for pretty much any suggestions, and criticisms. I'm new at song writing, and I feel pretty lackluster. If you have general comments, or tips to help it would be much appreciated! Thank you for your time :)! Lyrics: You spoke of a willow Tree And being In love I spoke of a burning in my lungs I feel if I don't look away I'll likely turn to stone You point out the Birds returned I'm not sure I would have known You're Sown with pedals and a hope I'm not sure you know
  2. Just finished my second song - it's still very much a first draft and has a few problems, but I'm going with it for now. Any feedback is appreciated greatly! I produce all of my music as well, so any feedback on the instrumental is also welcomed! Thank you!
  3. Well, this is what I came up with this afternoon. The birds and slight road sounds aren't sound effects by the way, I just caught them from outside while recording the guitar and decided to keep them. Simple tune, I didn't have much time. Maybe I'll expand on it...not sure... Any feedback welcome. Added a new part and reduced the repeat on the end part. Does it work? Another update 10th March, now including some bass. https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/distant-cars03/s-IO7C4 UPDATE WITH SHREYASI https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/distant-cars08lessverb/s-3fNeZ Words - Evenings cold On the stone With my feet In the road Counting hours Wanting more Counting hours It’s a dream for the few Close my eyes to the truth It won’t be long Until the night It won’t be long Feel it in the sound Of distant cars The empty roads cold Waiting for Golden lights Golden lights Arms open wide Hope through fear All those years behind the tears Let’s go home Graceful love Painful love In the evening glow It's getting late and the world is waiting Mistakes are made In the evening glow Evening's cold On the stone With my feet In the road It won't be long Until the night It won't be long
  4. Hi folks Here's a new song that I wrote and recorded. Nits and crits welcome. I'm Not the Bad Guy Written and performed by Staypress V1 I'm sick of saying sorry for things I did not do I'm tired of building bridges so I can get to you V2 I feel like I've been branded a monster among men I think I'll build a time machine and put it right again. Ch I'll admit your jealousy didn't bring out the best in me But I'm not the bad guy i don't deny I lost my cool, being made to feel a fool But I'm not the bad guy V3 I'm tired of feeling guilty for things I should have done I'm sick of being sorry for fights I never won Ch Middle bit I'd be the first to admit I was wrong If you'd allow me to talk that long The thought of you was heavenly, reality was hell Who's the guilty party? You know damn well Ch to end
  5. Hi guys, Here's my first attempt at a song, let me know what you think! Thanks
  6. Hey guys, This song is about going through a hard time and knowing you have to change what you're doing if you wanna feel better. I'd appreciate it if you could comment on what you thought, and be as cruel as you like : I really don't mind negative comments Here's the link (lyrics are below the video): Lyrics: [Verse 1] I’m tired of living like this And feeling like shit And telling myself lies Like I’ma be alright With my head in the clouds And the rain pouring down my cheeks And legs glued to the ground Oh I’m feeling weak Oh I’m feeling very weak Now I’m feeling very tired Now I’m feeling very sad And now I’m mad that I’m sad [Chorus] A change has gotta come Sooner or later A change has gotta come One way or another Cuz I’m tired of living like A life but not the good life And boy it’s been a while Since I’ve worn a smile So, a change has gotta come Sooner or later A change has gotta come One way or another [Verse 2] This ceiling’s getting dark No light, no shining star Hope seems too far And it’s driving me apart I’m forgetting who I am I’m forgetting what it feels like To love myself Soooo [Chorus] [Bridge] Ima do what I need to Ima change my life for good Yeah Ima turn my life right around Ain’t nobody gonna get me down Ima fight for what I believe in Dreams I’ll soon be living in With endless possibilities And endless inevitabilities I might find myself again Yeah I might be happy once more So a change is gonna come Sooner or later A change is gonna come One way or another Cuz I’m tired of living like A life but not the good life Boy it’s been a while Since I’ve worn a smile So, a change is gonna come (Oh yeah a change is gonna come) Sooner or later A change is gonna come (Oh yeah a change is gonna come) One way or another
  7. This song is about, well, basically being friendzoned. And then the girl you like turns out to be a ho, or more accurately: a gold digger. Haha, I had a lot of fun making this 'Amy Winehouse inspired' song soooo.... Please tell me what you think of this song - whether it be good/bad, it doesn't matter, I'd love both. Anyway, here's the song (lyrics are below): Lyrics: [Verse 1] We’ve been friends forever Maybe a little too long Whenever we’re together This feeling it won’t go away No this feeling it won’t go away So I stay up at night Thinking do you feel the same As I stare from afar Thinking maybe you feel the same But when I asked do you love me? You said “why, of course I do” But I know exactly what you meant Ye I’ll always be a friend to you But all I want is you Oh all I want is you [Verse 2] You with your sky blue eyes It’s hard to say when you’re telling lies So the next day I had to call you up To see who you really love But you said “No! Stop right there. Before you jeopardise what we got” So I said “I was just messing” And you said “No you’re not!” So I said “Just forget this happened” And you said nothing at all But I know I’ll never forget this ever Because all I think of is you Because all I want is you Ye all I want is you [Verse 4] Happy times, oh happy times for you You’re going off to Hollywood Told me you got a record deal From your new man who owns the label Oh I see the games you’ve been playing there Oh I see the games you ain’t playing fair I told you I was happy so, You told me I was the bestest friend I almost said it, oh ye I almost said it That I didn’t want you to go Cuz all I want is you Ye all I want is you [Verse 5] Do you know how I feel Or how I hurt I feel like a fool For ever loving you This unrequited love Is killing me slowly Because you’re all that I want But you’ll never love me Because you’re all that I want But you’ll never love me Love me Love me love love
  8. I did this bit of a song quickly earlier today for the challenge Richard started. I suppose I broke the 60 seconds rule but I think I like what I started so maybe I'll work it into a bigger BIG kind of track... I dunno. Interested to hear what people think so far anyway. UPDATED - I've extended the song (I kicking the arse out of the same progression counts)...did some new stuff. I wanted to try something different, so instead of using lots of synths I just used an X-705 Space Organ for all the keyboards. Seemed like a good idea at the time... This is freshly put together so maybe a mess... I'll know tomorrow but I like posting when I've just done something so this is what I got... If anyone says it sounds like Air Supply, I will find you and I will kill you. https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/lost-now/s-PjpgM We're lost now Baby don't frown We're lost now We're lost now Baby don't run The trees around us Won't make a sound Free the fire Burn them down Burn them all Burn them all Light up our eyes Burn them all Burn them all Be warm tonight Their souls Are hollow Their souls Are hollow
  9. I've went in and done some things with this. Different guitars, switched the verses, extended fade-out, etc… Any comments are welcome but I'm mainly looking at the mix. My goal is to get it to sound good enough for a free download. Gracias - Randy Donkey Kong Randy Drilingas, Just1L ©2016 I never did care for what you said. It didn't even make much sense. Trick all the dreamers. Make 'em believers. Then you let it go to your head. When you're high do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Did'ja read too much of everything? And turn your mind to dust. The rumors, the trollers, agenda promoters. You never know who to trust. When you're high, do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Donkey Kong's got Mario on a string. He's gonna need to pass him. To beat the game. Sometimes the eyes that gaze from a stranger. Can't see past the nose. No need to fear the jeers from a neighbor They'll never make you feel at home. Could you be, Should you be, Do you even wanna be, Do you even wanna be loved? Then don't forget the words of a mother: "If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all." When you're high, do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Donkey Kong's got another trick up his sleeve. Well... When you're high, let 'em stare. When you're low, let 'em stare. I don't care. Finally posting another tune. It's been a while. I've got multiple things I'm going to do/change to this but I figure it's at least at the listenable stage. Some things I know I'm going to do, some things I might do depending on feedback. The 2 musts lyrically are switching verse 1 and 2, and changing "win" to "beat" as noted in the copy. Also concerning the lyrics, I'm not really interested if you read through it and get it all. I don't consider this to be that kind of song. I'm going more old school with the vision of "if you hear it on the radio with no lyrics" what stands out and what feeling do you get from it. There is a reason for each of the lyrics though. For example each of the chorus "When you're high…" lines has a slightly different meaning each time, pertaining to the preceding lines. I plan to re-sing it all on a day when I'm feeling more mo-jo. And I also plan to re-do the lead riff guitar and bass. It's the first song I've struggled nailing the guitar parts for, at least my definition of nailing. Mixing thoughts are of course welcome as well. Enjoy if you can. Ideally, you'll want to turn it up.
  10. Hi this is my song 'I'm a crime to commit' Just want everyone to be honest as possible, is it good, bad or ugly. I've changed the lyrics slightly now they are: (Verse) Beautiful bitch, has got my back up against the wall, I'm a crime to commit, but it looks like you done them all. (Pre Chorus) Se--------------e me, see me walking away, then you're love--------ly, makes me wanna stay. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. (Verse) She got pi-er-cings, in all the right places, infectious lips, and that way she fakes it. (Pre Chorus) Lo--------------------------ve me, like its the only way, In--------------fect me, with your kiss. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more than you bargained for, Mo--------------------re, more than you bargained for. (verse) Dan-cing on the tables, she hypnotises me, Long red hair, right down to her knees. (Pre Chorus) Teach me, al the things you know, Infect me, love me until you go. (Chorus) Verse1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFdXhmeUtmI&feature=youtu.be
  11. Hi, a distinctly 80's ballad..if you take a listen, I thank you.. Hey, can't you see, it's the only way it should be, though your love is gone, you linger on, in my window of extasy.. fade, into blue, when I thought my love would breakthrough, did I misconstrue, when I fell for you, It was the only thing I could do, Don't let me go, love me forever, don't ever, set me free. you've captured my soul, it's now or never, don't ever, let me be.. clouds fill my eyes, when I think of your last goodbyes, as you walked away, left me castaway, I could only, wonder why, Hold on to you, is the only thing I wanna do, If you turn away, after leading me astray, then You've hit me, right out of the blue, Don't let me go, love me forever, don't ever, set me free. you've captured my soul, it's now or never, don't ever, let me be.. take a moment and think awhile, let me hold you again, I'll remember the way you smile, in the faces of all my friends, Guitar solo Don't let me go, love me forever, don't ever, set me free. you've captured my soul, it's now or never, don't ever, let me be..©KNmac best to all fellow muso's..
  12. I'd like to hear some feedback on this tune, Control Freak. Any suggestions about this recording and production, accompaniment, lyrics, and whatever else you can throw at me. I'm mainly concerned about the instrumentation because I'm not very skilled on synth and was experimenting. This song has been re-written a few times and I think it's improved with each re-write.
  13. This is where pissing around will get you. Seems that's all I do, nothing ever gets a fine polish on it. My question concerns prosody, should this be slowed? Seems when I do that it's just mired in the boring level of blah. Down To The River Hammered in the coals of a fire lost Shot from the age of Homeric lust The tip of love's arrow, well it pierced my lung But it missed my heart, I had none, it went Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home Love is an owl over fields of prey I was caught while dawn was threatening Clawing for the heart of it's victory won Well love left hungry, I had none, it went Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home I pulled her close when the night was young When still she needed to know I was strong But her moon fell over and her sky went numb When she reached for my heart, found I had none Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home Come home
  14. Hey everyone! I posted for my first time on here a week or so ago and wrote and recorded another song in between that time and now. I am just trying to find "my voice" or the genre where I can really shine as an artist and would appreciate feedback on this most recent song. (I know the mixing may not be 100%, I'm making all of this out of my college dorm room ) Lyrics below... My hands are tired from healing the pain, so far away but I’m still feeling the same. Its crazy how your words catch fire, its like you rule an empire. You got me questioning what happened to the love, to our one great nation under God. Try to forget the hate when I sing this song. We can walk down this road, but we can’t do this alone. We gotta learn from our past and move on… To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days. I wanna feel the rush, I wanna feel free, bask in the light of the American Dream And if you’re hanging on by a wire, hang on and climb higher You got me questioning what happened to this place, to a time of happiness and grace. Try to forget the hate when I sing this song. We can walk down this road, but we can’t do this alone. We gotta learn from our past and move on… To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days. We won’t go quiet into the night. We just keep moving moving moving moving onnnnnnn…. To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days.
  15. Something different from "Rock Bernd": http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13540169 The song's lyrics: while the bathtub slowly is filling up she downs her pills with a glass of red wine she tests the water to make sure it's fine somewhere she'd read it must not be too hot resting her head on a bath pillow she'd brought she's all set for her bath - peaceful and quiet she reaches out for the razor blade knife as soon as she feels the numbness set in she's overcoming all pretence and disguise she's overcoming his deceptions and lies she's hearing music wonderful, beautiful music now, that she's joining the angels' choir she is fascinated by billowing clouds that soon begin col'ring the water bright red while contemplating what might lie ahead she's getting tired and dizzy at last she's overcoming all pretence and disguise she's overcoming his deceptions and lies and she's hearing music wonderful, beautiful music now, that she's joining the angels' choir she's hearing music wonderful, beautiful music now, that she's joining the angels' choir
  16. - Vocal approach 1 - - Vocal approach 2 - Crossroads /verse If with time I still remember you know it won’t be without regret because I know you have been trying hard and it makes me sad now I see it fall apart but there always seems there is nothing I can do to make you feel alright /verse With every dream we had now broken a love once strong has turned too plain yet something with her face makes me remember how it was but that was then and it doesn’t really matter anymore /chorus And all the promises we made we broke them all along the way but if only you were here I think I´d stay but all we brought together falls apart /verse Just like a cold winds quiet whisper like eerie chills and winter winds but spring will come again and it will soothe away the pain, those yesterdays just hoping that someday I'll find in truth to hope she’ll be alright. /verse (extended) And now the years are rolling by me they seem to glide away with ease Like thunder in a thunderstorm ,Like shadows on a shadows wall with every fight that starts a cry as If she ever cared for how I felt and always came with reasons, not complaints and never cared to listen, it’s not sad we should fall apart /chorus And all the promises we made we broke them all along the way but how I do how I do love you seems all we brought together falls apart
  17. Here is the last work I made... Hope you'll appreciate it! Soundcloud link :
  18. Hey guys! This is a new song I wrote. It is a personal song about when I'm feeling happy/sad/angry - and then I feel nothing. I feel empty and everything loses it's meaning and I just want to give up. That's what the first verse is about. The other 3 verses are about what make me feel that way - friends/family, someone that always seems to ruin my happiness and my dreams that I never achieved. Here's the link: I know the music ain't great but I'll try get it right for my next song. Anyway I really hope you liked something about it, otherwise I'd love to hear any suggestions/opinions going forward Thanks, Anonymous9
  19. Garage (or rather home-office) Rock. I like whatever I do, but that's no reason not to learn a thing or two ;-) http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13535650 After discussions on another board I already altered the mix (lowered the guitar tracks so vocals and drums - and bass - would be more present). Two say, the song is too 'staccato' all through. Hm. I had already tried to smoothen that out in the bridge by means of the ride cymbal so as to get more variety. For people who only are interested in lyrics: trade real life for chat and tweets google to find doubtful truth fake news, goo that sounds so sweet all designed to spoil your youth all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind swap real friends for online nicks friendships that ain't worth a dime panting after online chicks all you're doin' is waste your time all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind you don't know how fresh grass smells what the songs of pied birds tell [in the 'official' lyrics I'll change that to "blackbirds"] you don't know how kisses feel you can't tell fake from real all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind animated, coloured ads wrap around your clouded mind chasing after short-lived fads you tread on a ground that's mined all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind
  20. ********* Hi all - I have added an updated version of the song within the topic and left the original here if anyone wants to listen to it... Cheers ******** Hi all - it's a bit quiet in here at the moment. Finally managed to find time to sit down and try and come up with something new - started this today. I like the little middle 8 (**cough**) bit and would like to work out how to get it to fit, as it sticks out like a sore thumb at the moment. Just looking for feedback and crits on music and lyrics. Also on how the mix is sounding at the moment. Cheers https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/midnight-hour-24022017-2235/s-TN04a MIDNIGHT HOUR (music/lyrics by Richard Tracey) V1 How do you say you're sorry When there's nothing left to say Do you feel your life has been complete When you've given it all away V2 All the questions needing answers Are just left there in the wind All the righteous and the pious Take no notice that you've sinned CHORUS In the Midnight Hour You will come alive In the Midnight Hour You'll block out all the cries In the Midnight Hour The truth is clear to see In the Midnight Hour Is when you are truly free V3 All the things you're thinking They don't make sense to me All the battles you have lost Resigned to history But still a twinkle Is burning in your eyes No time to dwell on A life built on all your lies CHORUS In the Midnight Hour You will come alive In the Midnight Hour You'll block out all the cries In the Midnight Hour The truth is clear to see In the Midnight Hour Is when you are truly free
  21. Ok, so I finally got a recording finished on this. It's another sketch but I tried to add some flavor of what I hear as the direction of the song Down To The River Hammered in the coals of a fire lost Shot from the age of Homeric lust The tip of love's arrow, well it pierced my lung But it missed my heart, I had none, it went Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home Love is an owl over fields of prey I was caught while dawn was threatening Clawing for the heart of it's victory won Well love left hungry, I had none, it went Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home I pulled her close when the night was young When still she needed to know I was strong But her moon fell over and her sky went numb When she reached for my heart, found I had none Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home Come home

Hi Everyone.........Apologies for being a bit absent....I haven't recorded anything for over a year; but, I got busy with this one over the weekend, and I guess it's ready to show All comments are welcome, and first impressions are most appreciated.Thanks, in advance..................-TomShe’s In LoveBy Tom Tognacihttp://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13520238Forty-five more miles to go This old freight train’s moving way too slow She’s in love She’s in love ……..with someone else The sound of steel has a lonesome bite Crawling up my back on this winter’s night She’s in love She’s in love ……..with someone else I got out two days agoFrom a jail in OhioHeading for the place I once called homeI hang my hope on my LorettaBut she only wrote me one letterCalling for the day when I come homeThe northern lights are a mysteryAnd there’s no solace in their companyShe’s in loveShe’s in love ……..with someone else I’m so tired of being lonelyI’d call home, if I could onlyKnow for sure that she’d be there aloneNow, all I have is my LorettaAnd the words written in this letterCalling for the day that I come homeAnd I’m coming home.
  23. Hey guys new song! Any critique would be appreciated. Went for a chill/cloud rap vibe. Lyrics: Right now this hot beat keeps me company;In a few I want the top seat at a company You see I got big dreams in my sleep I see things;Wake up I'm writing got the bright lighting;That's the sun shining watching me succeed;I stay strong not weak cause I'm grinding every week;Got the timing on the beat so of course I bring heat;I'm the son of jah... Jehova that's my father;Wont be a martyr but I'm smarter than half ya drunks;Amongst the best I never rest avoiding arrest from the boys in blue;Oh and TSA wanna get me too;Young yout with a turban got a target on my back;Wanna see me with a cap in my back;Cause they cant stand the fact that their kids on crack;Or smack;Sorry;Which ever one they be one.. Or both; Nize it nize it nize it;You need to shut up and leave it;Leave it leave it leave it believe it I'm leaving my mark on the season;Like red leaves falling;Sorry I'm rising;Shouldn't be surprising;You're waiting for my demise man;I see you on the side lines;Sad times;More alive than last time;I age like fine whine;With each rhyme;My music will be vintage in due time;Rolling with Beatles and lions;They're feeble they're lying;They'll keep on trying;Spying;But they'll find nuttin cause I'm cleaner than a white t;But im meaner than you're wifey;You might bleed or freeze if you walk at night g;Probably wearing you're nighty;I'm too mighty just let me succeed;
  24. Hi guys, Here’s a new song of mine. It’s been way too long (as it usually is). I would love to get your honest opinion on what works and what doesn’t. Is suppose it’s kind of a protest song (or maybe an anti-protest song?) and indirectly about politics, so I hope it won’t rub anyone the wrong way. I mostly mean to say that regardless of where we stand, we should listen to each other before bringing out the pitchforks. Hopefully we can all agree about that ;-) thanks for listening! -- Outrage Parade A real man doesn’t mind being schooled Because he knows better than to play by the rules of Those who only know how to appear If only we had real men down here The full-time victims of the PC crowd They had enough of being told what not to say out loud And so they lit a dumpster fire that forced us all off the rails It’s a scary world where cooler heads don’t prevail Hey, outrage parade Oh how we love those barricades Hey, outrage parade Light your torches now It’s getting late My money’s on the ones who know That merely wishing for a savior doesn’t make him so And that sometimes you’ve got to sit one out and hope for rain To wash away the bile before it leaves a stain They’re all so angry but they don’t know why You know they never had it better but it don’t feel right And then somebody comes along and tells ‘em who to blame Is there anything less enlightened than a crowd aflame? Hey, outrage parade Oh how we love those barricades Hey, outrage parade Don’t be defined by the things you hate
  25. Lyrics to a song from my first, and only, album. What do you think? Thanks Before you know its gone Through the darkness of the night, I could see back to the start of you and me, Before it all begun, Through the silence of your voice, I remember good and worst we left behind, Our time has slipped away, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, In the softness of your skin, I can almost feel you touching me again, The way you made me feel, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, Now we have taken our last breath, And I know that we won't last much longer now, You left me all alone, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, https://leoandthedude.bandcamp.com/track/before-you-know
