New song "Taxi"
on: April 30, 2019, 17:46:05
This is when you go to the night. It does not matter where. Under the sounds of the old cassette. Silent conversation with the driver.

Nice. I enjoyed the ride......and the wash. Pretty cool visuals in the car wash.

watching youtube & commenting doesn't go together well... so now I listen while I type this.
Sounding very lush. has a French flavuor to it. The track starts off with quite a sharp sound. Otherwise no comments here. Let us know how you wrote this, what came first - lyrics / music.
Any background is interesting for discussion.
Cheers @shatiks

First, a mood idea was born. Under her, I picked up the chords. The melody was created simultaneously with words. The nature of the poems complemented the sounds consonant with the theme of the song. This is the desire of the hero to rewind his life like a tape in an old cassette, which he heard in a taxi
1
Listen to me bro in taxi
Take me to dreams
Take me to where
 These songs sounded
In those days, in those years
where we went wrong
Wind off life back
I ask you as a brother

chorus

Do you hear me bro? Do you hear me bro?
Wind off this song back
Under the old film like that
Let's be young again

Do you hear me bro? Do you hear me bro?
Wind off this song back
Under the old film like that
Let's be young again
2
Listen to me bro - do not rush
Keep this cassette
There are songs on that film
funny and sad
Already rubbed and cracked
But how they sound!
Wind of it again please
And then full of gas.

chorus

Love your song and your video too.
A magic taxi, since it ride around every street in the world.
A taxi that is at home everywhere, brings people together.
Fabulous piece of work there, @shatiks!!!

Good to hear another one from you @shatiks

I like the idea of a cassette being a metaphor for life and wanting to rewind it to 'turn back time', if only for maybe a little while ;-)

A nice sound overall and an interesting video to go with the music.

Good Job
