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?

"Awesomely dramatic and dramatically awesome"...That is the coolest phrase I've heard in a while. XD

Great piece

I cry again.. This is not good for me... I love it though. The pictures it brings to mind for me is the human life in general. We are born into hopeless sin. (I am a christian and hope that what I speak about does not offend you or anyone else) We live, we die, but one man paid the untimate price. The picture your music paints for me is the picture of Him hanging on the cross. I am amazed over and over with your talent for creating such music. My great grandma comes to mind as well. She was a good christian woman who never ceased to amaze me. I picture myself visiting her grave with the lovelest flowers as a gift for her. Standing over her grave marker speaking about the times we had when I was younger. I remember everything about her, how she would read to me, how I would sleep on the couch in her room and get up in the middle of the night and crawl in bed with her. (I inevitably have to stop typing to whipe the tears away. ) At the very end, I picture myself bending down and placing the flowers on her grave as the wind blow through my hair, then looking up at the sky knowing she is in a better place.

What is wrong with crying? I truly believe it is a strength to be able to admittedly cry due to beauty.

I am a Christian as well and am not offended in the least. I find it very inspiring that you write such things rather than submitting to politcal-correctness. Being politacally correct is rediculous. (Forget "Happy Holidays", I'll say "Merry Christmas" if I feel like it! Whether the person decides to have a merry Christmas or celebrate it is their choice. I'm simply spreading the joy! :D) But I digress...I never would have imagined this music describing the death of Jesus. That is a profound image indeed. Your grandmother also sounds like a wonderful women; you are blessed to have known her. I'm sure she is in a better place by the way you described her. :)

Thank you...Your review has touched me.

Fantastic ^^

Touching piece. . . which means it does it's job. I like it! I hope it gets used soon.


BlazingDragon responds:

Thank you, I appreciate the kind words. This has been used in one flash, and a really awesome one is in the making that will use it. It will be a while until it's out, however.

Wow.

I must say, this is an excellent piece you have here, better than my entry I'll admit. I love the soft piano you used. The FL orchestral strings aren't all that bad IMO. Sure, there are better out there (I'd give you soundfont names but I lost mine when I reformatted my disk), but these strings works.

I'm curious, which piano are you using? It sounds excellent and I would love getting it if you don't mind :P

Good luck on the MAC!

BlazingDragon responds:

Thank you very much for the review. The FL Strings sound decent when used for textural purpose in the background, but do horribly when exposed. I use the SquidFont Orchestral soundfont, now. As far as the piano goes, it is called "MIS Stereo Piano". I found it on Blackhole12's profile and love it dearly. It is actually a direct wave sample and not a soundfont, though it should still work in FL Studio. (It does for me and my FL Studio 8 Demo) You can find the link on this page:

Good luck to you as well in the MAC! :D

Great.

I thought the original of yours was great, and now I am in shock at how you are able to make something like this. It flows so well with the strings and the piano in harmony.

It's a really simple song, but I think that is the charm. I wish I could write a song like this regularly. :(
I'm thinking about using this as one of the submissions to the MAC8 "Sorrowed Tears" contest.

Thanks for the review!
