Feedback on Finished songs / Re: New song- Dreamlike feat CPM
« Last post by nooms on Today at 12:43:11 AM »
fine piece of work jamie and conspirator in cpm ..
blue nile meets early genesis and i mean that in a good way !
hooky changes and arrangmnt..
vocals & lyrics tender and then open up all guns blazing..
would have prefferred an ending tho, think either the fades too short or devising an ending would be a bonus ..
but great stuff

Feedback on Finished songs / Blowback
« Last post by PaulAds on Yesterday at 05:50:37 PM »
This was my somewhat contrary take on writing a James Bond song.


Blowback

Out for revenge
And in for the kill
A stubborn refusal
To bend to your will

Scores to be settled
Debts to be paid
Agreements torn up
Where fortunes were made

The point of a bayonet
The sole of a boot
The hum of a drone
To end the dispute

You don’t hear their cries
But no-one forgets
The blood never dries
Where the sun never sets

INST

Scratching your head
And wondering why
The natives are restless
Won’t lay down and die

All over the world
We're under attack
You reap what you sow
It's starting to crack…

Blowback.

Any thoughts/suggestions/defence of the realm welcome  :P

Nice to hear from you again...this is every bit as good as I remember you being :)

The verses probably steal the show but the chorus is really engaging and almost conversational with that nice little "just water drops" line

Lovely guitar and a great vocal...and a really good song.

@Sterix that’s super good - you’re a great singer and the song works really well (love the little bond riffs you threw in too).

Hedge trimming and dinner have got in the way a bit of mine today (bet JB doesn’t have those problems) so tomorrow it will be (probably)!

I got this through on an email...a very generous offer from Drums on Demand...and I grabbed the Top Ten Rock Drum Loops (value $49.95) which sound really great.

I just received an email saying that if you follow the link here

https://www.drumsondemand.com/collections/thanks?mc_cid=a4700ea6ca&mc_eid=cee2323ce7

friends and family can benefit from the offer too...it has to be a download though, rather than a physical disc

You can preview them all before making your choice. There are also a few song construction packs for anyone who needs more help with guitars/bass/whatever.

You can download one pack FREE.

Please check that the code works (it's "THANKS" if it doesn't automatically register) before committing to buy.

I thought it was a lovely gesture from them  :)

Yes no winners or judging @Wicked Deeds - the deadline's just so we can start producing the album. 
@Sterix that vocal demo sounds really good!  You can obviously hear it all playing out in your head.  Wow, I can never imagine melodies that clearly without instruments behind them.  Your voice is good too... you should sing more of your own stuff?

I'm hoping this doesn't turn into a competition. I tbought it was just a writing challenge.

I know I'm not in the compo but I thought I'd give you a little insight into what I had written for my version of the song. I was so desperately trying to hold back a cough towards the end I got a little out of tune (or more so than the rest, depending on your take).

Please don't call the police and try to have me arrested for GAH (Grevious Aural Harm) on your ears! :D

Winter rages
Her frozen kisses poison on your lips
The choice you make is
To wage the war or close your eyes, give in
Your destination
The end of everything you’ve ever known
In contemplation:

You make your move and hold your breath
Prepare to dive into the depths

It’s hard to break the vicious circle
You have been here so many times
They try to break you, try to hurt you
But still you stand and face the tide
And this is no time to die

In the shadows
Their eyes see everything your try to hide
Stare at the gallows
A fate that you have dodged time after time
I tried to warn you
You bleed like any other mortal man
And will they mourn you

When everything comes crashing down
And you’re alone on hallowed ground?

It’s hard to break the vicious circle
You have been here so many times
They try to break you, try to hurt you
But still you stand and face the tide
And this is no time to die

When the illusion
Is finally revealed
When all the dust has settled
Whose fate will have been sealed?

It’s time to play the hand they’ve dealt you
To place your bet and take your aim
It’s all you know, and you were meant to
Defeat the house at its own game

It’s hard to break the vicious circle
You have been here so many times
They try to break you, try to hurt you
But still you stand and face the tide

You play for pride

And this is no time to die

There is nowhere left to hide
So stand and fight!

Cos in the end you know inside
That this is just no time to die
