New song: Dear Sunshine
on: June 27, 2019, 20:11:25
Hi Mates,

I've made a feelgood song about my love for the sun. It's called 'Dear sunshine':

Thank you for the feedback in advance!


Dear sunshine
Can you promise me you’ll stay
Dear sunshine
You put a smile on my face today

When I walking in the street
I can feel my heart beat
With the sunshine on my face
I'm feeling fine, Im ok

Very cool tune...sounds great!

I wanted more, though.  :)

Consider stretching out what is now the ending and then swinging back into an extended repeating chorus....because that chorus REALLY works!
"The main thing is to have a gutsy approach....but use your head." Julia Child

 "In a world of robotic conformity, the only originality left in music is the imperfections" Eric Craptone

"Special thanks to Steve Gleason for making me who I am today." Leonard Scaper

Hi @Jellody

This isn't quite my cup of tea but in saying that I enjoyed it. The layers works and it has a nice bouncy pop feel to it. I can imagine someone playing this live with a looper pedal, gradually building up the layers.

@Leonard Scaper makes a good point re the length. It could be longer based on his suggestions, but in saying that, I do like a short song. There's an art in keeping a song short as it's easy to add bits but not so easy deciding what to remove.

The vocalising opening drew me in @Jellody and I was feeling the warm poppy sweetness of this...and then its over :farewell:
The repetions are all that you need, just maybe some variations on the theme.
I guess I wanted more - take that as a compliment since the vocals/arrangement are fine and I think its probably got commercial potential.
