Something new from Popitup
on: April 03, 2022, 04:42:07
Something new from my studio . . . though, heavily collaborated with a former band mate who created most of the synthesizer parts on this one.
I think the keyboards  really created something totally different than my usual guitar drums and vocal, so thought I would post here for some feedback.

DANGEROUS EYES
I don't like to cast opinions on another
And I don’t like to judge a book by just the cover
All my eyes might tell me, my heart never buys
You challenge my philosophy, I try not to despise . . . but you’ve got

DANGEROUS EYES
GOT A MADNESS UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
I WON’T STEP IN THE SHADOWS JUST TO CROSS YOUR LINE

On my guard, ‘cause something in your style
Just makes so it hard , to laugh along with your jaded smile
All my mind might sell me, my heart never buys
Ya’ push me to the limit, still I try not to despise . . . but you’ve got

DANGEROUS EYES
GOT A MADNESS UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
I WON’T STEP IN THE SHADOWS JUST TO CROSS YOUR LINE
DANGEROUS EYES
ONE MORE MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT
AND I HAVE NO DESIRE TO BE THE FUEL FOR YOUR FIRE

All my eyes might tell me, my heart never buys
You challenge my philosophy, I try not to despise . . . but you’ve got

DANGEROUS EYES
YOU GOT A MADNESS UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
I WON’T STEP IN THE SHADOWS JUST TO CROSS YOUR LINE
DANGEROUS EYES
ONE MORE MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT
AND I HAVE NO DESIRE TO BE THE FUEL FOR YOUR FIRE

GOT DANGEROUS EYES
MADNESS UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
I WON’T STEP IN THE SHADOWS JUST TO CROSS YOUR LINE
DANGEROUS EYES
ONE MORE MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT
AND I HAVE NO DESIRE TO BE THE FUEL FOR YOUR FIRE

Hi @popitup , the synth give this song a really bold touch, I like the vibe!
The lyrics I find overall very good and especially I like the image what is conveyed to me with this line :)
GOT A MADNESS UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
I WON'T STEP IN THE SHADOWS JUST TO CROSS YOUR LINE

Sounds super professional what you two have done together, very coherent. ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Agreed with @Mo  - the image of Madness under the moonlight is strong.
Liking the backing vocal singing there as well. Lots of tight details.
Overal cool Mike Oldfield vibe. recommended to @Mar T.

I love the sound fusion that you have used, the oces are great and the very modern arrangement, it goes very well with the style of the song, with the lyrics. Synths are great, this new color on your songs is really great.
Good arrangement and good production.

Stay well

I like it a lot! @popitup
It’s all in the ear of the beholder. Everybody seems to be hearing 80’s but I hear Loggings and Messina.
Away from the pretensions and blah of the after flower plower and back to foot tapping lightness.
Keep ‘em coming, please.
Kind regards, Gus

Love this mix! And it moves nicely as well.

Great hook chorus.

Cats always do it for me, and the song of course :) You've already heard that people think it has an 80s vibe, and to a degree I agree. Duran Duran, no. I have been a lifelong hardcore fan, and your song did not make me think of them, only when I really tried my best. I can imagine why it was suggested, but I think your song is a little too electronic to really compare. I am much more inclined to compare your sound to bands like China Crisis, but with a vocal colour that slightly reminds me of Drum Theatre or possibly The Killers or Kaizers Orchestra.

Do I like the song? Yes, quite.  It is catchy and well worked out. Well done.
