This is our second song.

I'm posting it up to invite feedback on the song.

I am posting our original demo, as I prefer the vocal arrangements.

https://soundcloud.com/sandeep-issar/to-catch-a-falling-leaf-first-demo

The song is about falling in love and superstition!

The lyrics are:

Catch a Falling Leaf

Catch a falling leaf and make a dream come true
Tried to catch a leaf the day I fell in love with you
I can walk the street and beg to know your name
You can break my heart  and say my lie's a game

There were times when I could see you in the back yard of my mind
And there were times when I begged for your love as payment of kind
I sang of times...so so many times, I sang of times-------
When I would......

See a rainbow in the sky all colours there to view
Blow an eyelash from my hand and I just think of you
Dance upon a cloud and tried to sign your name
You can break my heart and say my lie's a game

And there were times when I could see my lie would never have a start
So I set off on a mission to find your missing heart
I sang of times...so so many times, I sang of times-------
When I would......

Catch a falling leaf and make a dream come true
Tried to catch a leaf the day I fell in love with you
I can walk the street and beg to know your name
You can break my heart and say my lie's a game

See a rainbow in the sky all colours there to view
Blow an eyelash from my hand and I just think of you
Dance upon a cloud and tried to sign your name
You can break my heart and say my lie's a game



Thanks

Sandeep

Hi Sandeep,

This song has a really nice 60s feel to it, especially the chorus. Vocals are have an ethereal feel to them and give the song a nice laid back feel.

Good lyrics and your phrasing works really well - especially on how "time" is sung.

The subtle strings also work well.

How did the final version of the song differ from the demo? I like this demo so interested to see what you did with it.

cheers

Jurgen

Hi Sandeep, wow I enjoyed the listen! Catchy melody, great instrumentation... Maybe some tweaks in the vocal treatment will make the (nice sounding) vocal blend in a bit more in the mix and sit on top at the same time. Maybe some eq-ing and parallel compression of the vocal track will give it that little extra it deserves. But that's just a production thing.
Thanks for sharing!

i liked the title of this right away...

nice vocal melody with a very 60s and 70s sweet and peaceful sound, great arrangment, hard to criticize anything in this track

very beautiful i think.... that high string melody....sort of sounds like a falling leave floating down from a tree, going back and forwards in the wind


very, nice, i put my thump up for this on your soundcloud  ::thumb::

Thanks Jurgen,

We weren't so sure about the vocal mix on the final version.....the chorus did not seem right, even after we posted it to Soundcloud. Phil has only produced vocals twice , so we aren't totally sure why the vocals did not work.
We also added more instruments which may have taken away from the vocals again.

The track is on Soundcloud perhaps you can see what is wrong, because overall the production is much better.


DutchBeat, Stan and Martimedia.....thanks for all your kind words.....Phil is new at mixing songs so he is appreciative of any feedback that you have given.

We will definitely use the Work In progress section when we start working on our new songs.....we are very excited about how this forum works, so thanks a lot.


Sandeep
