Chance Meeting
on: December 15, 2019, 06:01:50
https://soundcloud.com/dmsound-2/chance-meeting

A sign to come, a photograph, just got done raining so watch your step
They didn't know, just what it was, they said they needed a chance meeting,
Kids talking softly, it's such a crime, a manner half-hearted, so where's the line drawn?
Between boredom, and feeling fine? Feeling fine...
The darkest shadows have passed them by, filling glasses and they know they why the
Moment has come, to go outside, and feel the life breathing in the night, in the night
Faith walking strangers, a doubt be damned, an open door is quietly passed now,
They couldn't notice without a glance, just how easy it really was, when they said they needed
a chance meeting, chance meeting
And he sat on the steps, while she sang her song
She sat on the steps, while he sang his song

Sounds gently and free. Loving the room sound. Is that a reverb from Audacity?
Good lyrics too imho, @DMsoundz  ! Any particular reason you are now posting this song? Are you planning to rerecord it or otherwise seeks some feedback?

@oorlab Haha no I use MixCraft; not audacity.  I posted it because It was one of my first songs I put on soundcloud but never put on any message boards; wanted to see what kind of feedback it would get.  Thanks for listening! Cheers!

Sounds good.....light and pleasant sounding. The reverb is a bold choice but really does add a nice dimension to the production.

@Leonard Scaper thanks!  I would say from a recording standpoint and utilizing my software that the progression has been much improved.  From a musical standpoint, I would say this song still holds as one of my best; of course that's just to me.  If i've realized anything over the course of the time i've been on soundcloud is that you never know what people might think of any given song at any time.  I do like the mellow yet serene folkiness and hopefulness that the song brings, so I guess that's why it stands out to me.  Thanks again for listening!

Well, @DMsoundz , I like the idea of the song, but I think you could improve on it quite a lot. The lyrics are nice but hard to understand by just listening. It is  and should be a relaxed song (a bit Neil Youngish) but in many a line the presentation feels a bit hurried. The same I detected in the rythm of the guitar accompaniment which varies and tend to get faster and faster. A metronome or clich track would help. You have a nice timbre but I would like you to work a bit more on the vocals.  Because not much happens musically all depends on your vocal strength. It is a nice song and has the right ambience but I kept thinking: relax! Just my humble opinion.
If you dig it, do it. If you dig it a lot, do it twice (Jim Croce).
