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?

Here's my story...

He had just put down the phone. Shivers ran down his spine and his hand shook. "She couldn't mean it," he thought. The girl he had loved since he was in high school had just left him. No goodbye, no warning. He crumpled onto the couch, not able to cry. "It can't just end this way... why? What did I do?" mumbled the man. He crawled to the couch, and suddenly, without warning, he began crying. Tears poured down his face in huge sobs. He gasped for air, looked for light, wanted to hear a sweet sound. But all he got was the cold silence of being alone.

Nice story! :)

I've heard a lot of stories relating to death and the like, so a change up is feels good. A break up isn't as tragic, but you painted a sad scene nonetheless. Thanks for the inspiration!

BlazingDragon responds:

I'm tend to be a spelling freak, but I'll try my best not to ignore any bad grammar. :P

While the story is very similar to those which I have received before, it fits the song quite nicely. The assassination part was original, though. I haven't gotten that one yet. The term "river of sorrow" that you employed in the story is very interesting. I think it would make a great song title! (I might just use that :O)

Thank you for taking the time to share what you imagined. :)

Hey, I rly like this

Mind if I use this in one of my flashes? It will take a while to make however, it's gunna be really long and sad.

Loved the song, brought up so many sad memories, which I am oing to kind of mold into a fantasy flash animation. Plllz say yes!


BlazingDragon responds:

Absolutely, I would be more than happy if you used it. After all, what is the audio portal for?

Thanks for the review. Please tell me when you finish the flash, and I'll drop a review! :D

Great

This song was very, very nice! You captured the essence of sadness very well in this piece. This is something you might expect to hear in a movie where someone dies and it flashes back to important moments in that person's life, if you understood that at all. Fav'd.

And I did find the strings to be decent. Unfortunately I don't got any idea of any free one's. Just try fiddling around with the EQ and the string you like most until you get a sound you like.

I suggest adding just a bit more reverb to the piano.

BlazingDragon responds:

I can't even tell you how many times I've been told that same exact thing! Not that is is bad to hear, but this is apparently a very cinematic song, lol. Actually, I'm glad to hear it, as I hope to one day score for film. :)

My EQ skill's are lacking, I must admit. I know how to tweak reverb, but that's about it. I find it funny that the piano could use more reverb, as it had too much the first time I posted it. xD

Thanks for the review!

Perfected Desolation.

A beautiful melody that demonstrates the very moment of heartbreak and anguish. Symbolization of that which whomever will never come again. Forever lost in a sea of sorrow twisting within its torment.

This song is very captivating.
Many sad memories this melody brought up. For that I am surprised, it's hard to make a song that could actually grasp the listener in ways you thought you could not. This is why you deserve a 10/10.

Keep up the good work.

BlazingDragon responds:

It seems as if sad songs have much more power than happy ones. I can think of many deeply emotional songs which bring to mind sad memories and have resonated with me on a deep level. I can not think of many happy ones, however. Perhaps this shows that humans remember painful experiences more prominently than joyful ones?

You have left a beautiful review. For that I give you my gratitude and respect.
