NOTE: Just a quick heads up! You may have to turn up the volume a bit on this one. It is a bit on the quiet side (Unless my speakers are simply terrible and/or broken).

Before someone inevitably asks, the answer is no; this is not Naruto. It isn't related to the song "Sadness and Sorrow" on Naruto, nor did I even watch the anime at the time I wrote this. That is a great song, but this is completely unrelated aside from the coincidental sharing of titles. :P

Now that we've got that out of the way, on to the actual commentary. I wrote this piece long ago, and I've come a long way musically since then. However, I have received several requests to remake this song. I've added a VERY simple intro, a nicer piano soundfont, some strings, and I've tweaked the volume in a few spots. I think it sounds a lot better, but you can compare if you'd like.

Anyhow, I look forward to your comments! I would love to know your opinion, how I might improve this, or even what you imagine as you listen to this music. I read and respond to every review, so don't shy away! XD

Thanks in advance, and enjoy. :)

PS. I really need a decent strings sample for free. I have been using the string soundfont that comes with the FL Studio demo, but I can't stand it anymore. Know of any good samples for free?

The song... Instruments of what would happen to my gf. if she were to die by the hand of a human being... It would end my life the way her life did... if she were to die a early death by the hand of a human being... i will kill him... i will make sure the air he breaths will be the very last particles of air to enter his mouth... I will kill those who were to ever harm the love of my life... i will KILL...THEM...ALL!!!!! I do Apologize for the rambling. That girl is everything to me. and if she was gone from me i will not even have a thought to live... What im trying to say is that this music would enter my brain if she were to die...

There was once a girl in my life whom I thought the world of, but alas, that relationship didn't work in the end. I hope you are more fortunate and prudent than I was.

Thanks for the review!

Very sad. It expresses the aftermath of a ravenous war, or when you lose somebody you love.

Everybody was throwing in their opinions on what this song means to them. I think i may give it a try. This song brings out a sense of inevitability in my eyes, a journey you may have embarked on or something you hoped to achieve regardless of the knowing failure in your heart. it pushes you forwards and helps you learn from these mistakes in order to help you grow as a person which is where the higher notes of this song comes into play. the background harmony is almost soothing and consoling your defeat and congratulating your progress in spite of the failure it represents. Yes, this is a sad song and it brings back those horrible twisted memories you once had and those dreams that may have been crushed but it does so in a way that makes it into a bitter sweet moment. I love this piece and it plays alot in my mind in my everyday life whenever something tragic happens and it makes me smile, knowing there was nothing i could do to prevent it but i tried anyway. This may well be what plays in my head when my time comes to pass and i move into the next life whatever it may bring. Thank you for this beautiful musical masterpiece and i apologise for such an incoherent rambling about your work and do hope you continue to keep dishing them out.
Cheers.

"...something you hoped to achieve regardless of the knowing failure in your heart."

I've felt this way about music at times. Thoughts crawl into my mind and tell me that I didn't start early enough or that I don't have enough talent. Despite that, I continue to compose. Writing music allows me to convey emotions in a way that I'm unable to do with words, and it is inspiring to find that my work has touched the lives of others. Knowing that helps keep me going.

What you wrote also reminds me of a relationship I was in. I truly thought that I loved this girl and that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. Despite my efforts though, the relationship fell apart and we drifted. It's sort of bittersweet remembering our time together, but I know that the future is bright and that there is hope in the future.

Thank you for the review. Now we have both written incoherent ramblings. :p
