Hideaway (acoustic demo)
on: January 28, 2019, 10:38:43
Hi guys, here's a little song I came up with the other day, took me all of 20 minutes (maybe it shows lol) it's a simple, happy song i've written for my young daughter. It's quite simple and childlike with the rhythm and lyrics but I guess it's supposed to be, I'm not happy with the last verse so i need to have a look at that again. My pitch is all over, i'm hoping one day i'll be able to sing in tune! Anyhow please let me know what you think to the song.

There you go making a mess
Doesn't matter when you're in that dress
Let's count together 1-2-3
Here we go with the ABC's

Chorus
I want to take you under the sea
Hideaway just you and me
I'll take your little hand
While we play in the soft white
Sand

2nd verse
What will you be when you grow old?
When everything's been bought and sold
A snowman, Postman, Ballerina?
Just you be a dreamer

3rd verse
So when you're all grown
And you've got kids of your own
Stop and think about this song
And remember where you're from

Nice fun song for your daughter, Kev. Is she old enough to be dancing along? That would make a great video.

I actually like that third verse.

She is old enough however when I play her it she thinks it's 'head, shoulders knees and toes' lol!!
Thanks for having a listen, I recorded a newer version this morning with better vocals

Wonderful gift for your daughter!!! Yes, I prefer this second version. Vocals sound better. Well done @realkevm!
It's a happy song with a very nice rhythm to dance as well with a very interesting thought.
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

@realkevm  A sweet song gift for your daughter... sure hope that last verse comes true!
 On the second version the doubled vocal seems to be working well for you now.

Robert

Thanks Robert! It does sound a bit better on this song doesn't it? I added some reverb too :)

Nice one @realkevm ! I think writing a song for your child is a great thing to do it will outlast all the toys, games and other material possessions. Parents wanted it to be - put a baby in a room with Mozart playing and shazam... they get smart. However, the reality is that no single thing increases a child's musical aptitude more than an adult singing directly face to face with the little one. So all that to say .. Way to go!  :)
