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?

Imagine.

No external sound. Just the sound of the music playing.

A man walking across the bridge to the city on a stormy night. Many cars pass by, the usual traffic to the city that never sleeps. He tosses the cigarette he was smoking to the ground and steps on it. He turns his body toward the traffic of the bridge and stares for a moment or two... or an eternity.

He steps back, leans over the bridge, and lets himself go. No fear. No pain. No emotion. He falls 10 stories. 20 stories. 30 stories. 100 stories... into the stormy waters below. There is no turning back from the inevitable impact. Except that impact never came.

He opens his eyes and he was right where he remembered. Back in his room, sitting against the wall on his bed in sweat pants and a tank top, cigarette in hand. Right where he ended up the previous four times he's tried this. He clenched down on his cigarette and just grunted.

He found himself back at the bridge. History repeats itself.


BlazingDragon responds:

Great description! It is quite a bit darker than anything others have suggested, but it is very well written. I love the line, "History repeats itself" albeit it being cliche.

Thanks for taking the time to review and be imaginative. You have a descriptive mind!

Vapid.

As said before, this song loops perfectly. It's a really good song to meditate or reflect with. It really numbed my mind during a bit of rage. Thanks for this lovely piece of work. Definitely on my favorites list.


BlazingDragon responds:

No, thank you for the lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed it and that it helped calm you down. :)

Sad but Beautiful

A kid looks at his dead parents grave's. He looks up at the stars. Silently he prays. He looks back down at the graves. He starts to cry. he falls to the ground. "Why God, why?!? Why did this have to happen?!? My heart has been broken, all my family has been killed, my best friend was murdered, and my loyal pet shot! What else do you want to take from me?"

That is what I thought during listening to the amazing piece of music.

Great description; it matches the emotions of the song very well! I must admit that I laughed upon reading "and my loyal pet shot!" XD (Though I don't know why I found it funny)

Thank you for the review. :)

Amazing.

Very sad and greatly put together. Loops so perfectly that I can't even tell when it loops.

I know of a free strings sample, it's called "squidfont orchestral". the only problem is that the string samples in squidfont orchestral sound a little like "old recordings" to me, but it also has a lot of variety.


BlazingDragon responds:

It is Mr. "Go Slug!" himself! I enjoyed that flash quite a bit. :P

Ah, I had forgotten about squidfont! I downloaded it ages ago, but lost it when I reformatted my hard drive. Thank you for the suggestion and review!
