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.)

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::

@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

Awesome drive and energy @Dutchbeat  :thumbsup:

Your vocals works really well with the song, you should listen to it and experiment with it. In time you'll probably get to know what you can or cannot do and you'll find that you are more competent than you first thought. This has been my path, I had absolutely no self-confidence with my voice and I could hardly stand it. Now I'm more objective. An online vocal coach said that every sound that comes out of your vocal cords is "your" voice, if it is spoken, sung, hummed, high pitch, low pitch etc. It's all you and that's what makes songs interesting and that is what people hear.
(Not many are born with a natural ability to sing, for most people it is something that has to be developed. Only a very few people have a condition that makes it not possible.).

The only negative thing I have to say is that perhaps the mix in Soundcloud is a little bit too loud (...personally I would turn it down by a few dB).
Other than that: Great song!  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: :dance:
