But - @Dutchbeat  - You sure can sing! Good song all around, will listen more if you need any feedback for any aspect, but the vocals are top imo.

Well done @Dutchbeat ! I didn't count the words, but you didn't use them all haha  :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
So you failed your self-assigned mission, but you definately passed achieving the goal, Nice tune man!!!
Nice to hear you're always releasing the DB's as in decibels  ;) ;)
Cheers my friend!

'Let this ripple become a wave' indeed.  :D Well done, @Dutchbeat.   ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
There's something hypnotising - even meditative and relaxing - about the music, which makes for an interesting contrast to the vocals. They sound fascinatingly ominous, especially right at the end of the song, with the word 'safe'.  8)

You can sing. Looks like the challenge has led you to a new path.  ;D

(It would be good if you could post the lyric.)

Honour the earth. Without It, we'd be nowhere. - D.D.

thanks @DonMar @oorlab @Mar T.  for listening to it  ;D ;D ;D

as to the lyrics
@DonMar and @Mar T.

i got inspired by the magic words challenge words from the first word on donmar's list, which was the word "alluring"
and the lyrics that came out from that are something like this  ::) ::) ::) ::)

Caring and mindful

You're so Alluring
(powerful and mysteriously attractive)
and your Wisdom
belonging to a distant past

It's Ancient

you're Bewitching
enchanting and delightful
so caring and mindful
echanting and delightful

Do let this ripple
become a wave
don't be afraid
we are safe
in our Gorgeous cage

it's Age / it's Ancient

you're Bewitching
enchanting and delightful
so caring and mindful
echanting and delightful

Let this ripple
become a wave
we are safe
don't be afraid

because...soon...
before the 1st of June...
before the new moon
it's our honeymoon

so caring and mindful
enchanting and delightful

Don't let this ripple
become a wave
don't be afraid
we are safe
in our Gorgeous cage

Do / don't let this ripple
become a wave
we are safe
don't be afraid

it's age
it's
ancient / age

don't be afraid

Hi @Dutchbeat

Well, here you are, fighting and doing.
I like the general sound of the track and the appearances of the voice. I love the rhythm, I love it.
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

@Dutchbeat  This sounds very good to me
This sounds really modern to me
I could have some commercial music
But it also has something that takes it away from commercial music and that's good
Very good work
Congratulations  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
I think there is always a thin line between reality and fantasy.
Crossing that line is easy
The difficult thing is to return to reality
And stay sane

@Dutchbeat Very hypnotic 80`s pop - you know how to mix this style! I like the  contrast of that slightly dark feel of your vocal to the bounce of the music.
If danceable magic words are the criteria you have a winner here :pompom:

Great beat and drive @Dutchbeat

Is that you singing? Nice to hear mate.

I like how the vocals are almost peaking up over the music. You use your vocals like another instrument and keep them lower in the mix than most vocals would be but it works for me.

cheers
