U did - Kitchen magic words challenge
on: June 02, 2019, 18:07:31
« Last Edit: June 13, 2019, 00:37:32 by Mar T. »
Hey dear kitcheners! Here's my result for the Kitchen magic words challenge.
Was absolutely fun to play with those beautiful words that were contributed by @DonMar ..
And I used them to describe a beautiful woman I recently met.
I hope you enjoy listening!!

U did

C1
I was gazing,
At a LAGOON of dreams,
Raindrop diamonds,
Lit by magic sunrays,

The mirror of water,
RIPPLES when they strike.

Your EPIPHANY,
right in front of me,
Your blinding smile
Your curly SUMPTUOUS hair ...You spoke ELOQUENTLY:

Ch:
This is what U did is all about..
'I will show you, just follow my light..'
This is what U did is all about..
'I will show you'...

C2
Most LABYRANTHINE
DEMURE for a moment,
I absorbed and sensed
I felt you.. I felt you.. ..With every beat of my heart..

EVENESCENCE just as suddenly
In that thunder-storm
Of hope and belief and strength
The smell of PETRICHOR

Hehe thank you my good friend @Dutchbeat , I guess I'm very, very enthousiastic... Feel the energy again..
Thanks for your reply, makes my day!! (In addition to that 'someone else'  ;) ;) )

 :pompom: Whoooohooo!  :pompom:

I want to keep tweaking this one, but at the other hand I think I'd like to send this one out to the world (track is still private).. Shall I take the risk or does somebody think it still needs some tweaks? Let me know!!

Love, Peace and Cheers!
Mar T.

That's a very catchy song @Mar T. - and you've done really well with your phrasing of the lyrics.

I'm often amazed when reading lyrics at how they can possibly be sung with a rhythm that fits. And this is one of those songs where when I read the words, I think "it's not going to work" - but it does.

I don't listen to this type of music so I can't really comment on whether you need to do anything to do the mix etc. but it definitely is catchy and your vocals sound great.

cheers

I absolutely LOVE how this song moves! That synth at the beginning really sets the table just right.

I can't wait to play this one LOUD in the studio.

Great lyrics and great vocals.

Great entry @Mar T.   ::headphone::!!!

Like the distorted drums and the voice-synth... to bad I dance like ... like a refrigerator :-(

Very catchy and a super smart move to use the magic words only in the verses and then break free in the choruses, that brings a cool contrast to the song.  :blackgrin:

Didn't expect an entry of this sort... this is the fun part of the challenges.  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Cheers @Jurgen , what a beautiful comment! It was a challenge to fit the words to the metre and reading that the metre works for you (with your native English tongue) is very special to me. Yeeaah!

I absolutely LOVE how this song moves! That synth at the beginning really sets the table just right.

I can't wait to play this one LOUD in the studio.

Great lyrics and great vocals.

I hope it won't blow the speakers off of the shelves Steve ( @Leonard Scaper )! Wonderful comment and great to read that it works for you, I know how you listen to music, so I know what this 'means'..

H i @Mar T.

I love! You have made me start the morning with rhythm and joy !!! You have managed to capture your new illusion with those magic words! Congratulations  ::thumb:: ::thumb::
Thank you so much @Mora Amaro La Loba , it was so much fun to create this one, and I'm glad you seem to have catched the energy in this song.

Thank you my friend Micke ( @Layerson ) for listening and commenting. Haha so we both dance like refrigerator I guess... There's no voice synth btw, only lead in the verses and lead + 3 harmony vocals (sung individually).. Yeah loved that drumbeat as well.. has so much energy. Was it too loud? Just checking..
Ah niiice you noticed that contrast between magic words in the verses and plain freestyle in the chorus.. Didn't do that on purpose I guess, but I kept it immediately after I captured it this way.

Thanks everybody for your endless support.. Going to check out if I missed one of your recent tracks.
Love, peace and cheers,
Mar T.

High energy  that doesn`t let up @Mar T.  Excellent vocal that sweeps up all those magic words and makes the whole a celebration. ::thumb::
Very good harmonies too.
I`m not an EDM guy, but the mix sounds good to me.... vocals sitting just where they should .

Nothing beats headphones at 4 in the night.
Now hush.
I'll give it another spin.
And I don't like petricor, but then again, I don't like rain.

@Mar T. A very good sound and dynamics
For my taste it has a lot of dance club style
It could establish a connection with the music of the 80 but this has something more than 2019
The timbre of the voice I like a lot because it has a lot of freshness and youth
In short, I think it's a good job

Cheers @robertkc , thank you for your listen and your comments.. Love the way we kitcheners are open-minded to other styles of music. I don't 'have' a particular style. This one needed some energy.. So it would've been either loud rock or loud EDM.. hehe.

Nothing beats headphones at 4 in the night.
Now hush.
I'll give it another spin.
And I don't like petricor, but then again, I don't like rain.
Kind regards, Gus

Hahaha @LePlongeur (Gus) , love your unique reply.. Did you listen again at daytime? Always amazed by your impressions.. lol!

@Mar T. A very good sound and dynamics
For my taste it has a lot of dance club style

Congratulations  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
You're very sensitive @Marcus Nalgaber ! You're exactly right here. 80's influences, but tried to create a more modern EDM kind of sound inspired by the old-skool-vibes.. Wow you hear 'youth' in my voice.. That must be that beautiful woman this song is about.. Imo my vocal chords are
sandpaper and only produce a fraction of what I was able to produce when I was younger. Must give that very special woman the credits for this, but I appreciate you noticing!! Thanks man!!

me again....it is just pretty awesome @Mar T.  i think

i think this very probably could be the winner of the magic words challenge

but, i have heard fantastic entries from others too  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

congratulations on this track  :o :o :o  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

No no no  @Dutchbeat as always, we're all winners for entering the challenge.. Love your compliments though!!
Btw, waiting for your entry.. are you going to make it in time?

Love, Peace and Cheers!!
Mar T.
