Hope to See You On The Otherside
on: March 29, 2020, 20:34:04
Someone asked me to write a song about Covid-19 back before it became a pandemic. The more it took hold of the world it was only a matter of time before something came out of me. Here is my first song for songs for review:

You can't go back. You can't stand still. If the thunder don't get you. The lightning will.

@GaryHynes  - most welcome to our little forum! What a fine cheerful song, props for the whistlng solo. It sounds easy, but it ain't.

Hi @GaryHynes ! Welcome to the kitchen. Now that's a merry little song of morbidity, death and despair.  :blackgrin:  Interesting.  :thumbsup:

@GaryHynes

I really love how you've made something supremely morbid into something so cheerful, like it's some masterful act of sardonic humour.

My congratulations to you!

The production sounds good generally. But as you said in the email you want to develop a more professional grade sound. There's a bunch of great technical and sound people on here that can assist you in developing that sound, should you want that advice and should you want to use it.

We all use a range of DAWs and techniques and everyone has their way of doing things. Anyways, ask a question somewhere if you need to and don't be afraid to tag people you think might be able to help.

A good "gallows humour" song that is required in times like these.  ::thumb::

With a song like this it's really important that all the lyrics come across well. Well they do so that's why it works.

Good Job

@MrBouzouki  @Monty Cash Music @oorlab @Bill from November Sound

Thanks for your comments. Glad you enjoy it. I am learning some new terms here "gallows humor" & "sardonic humor" to name a few. It's good to know this as many of songs are coming out that way recently. Life seem inherently tragic, at least up to now, it's important to have "levity" as someone else once said to me.
