I have been struggling to compose a sad song for several days. With the theme of the current MAC being Sorrowed Tears, I had to come up with something fitting. Yet I've had no inspiration. I began to write one song, but I could not find a way to get past the intro. I had given up any hope, and simply submitted an old work.

Tonight, however, I was stricken with sudden inspiration. I began to ponder my life, my decisions, etc. Shortly thereafter, I also watched part of Spider Man 3. Without spoiling the movie, a certain sad point in the story was accompanied by some mournful music, and it gave me shivers. I HAD to write a song. I ran upstairs to the computer and got to work. 45 minutes later, this is the result.

This song does not represent simple sadness, nor regret, nor bitterness. I does not represent the death of a loved one or the emotions that such brings. What this song represents is guilt and true sorrow. It is the feeling you get when you realized that you hurt the person you loved most; that you made a huge mistake and now have to bear to burden of your actions. It represents the consequences of your greatest sins. It represents true remorse for your actions.

I truly hope you feel the sheer emotion of this song. It came from my heart, and expresses better than any words what I have felt recently.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that. Besides, I believe Winterwind-NS posted something. He's the one to worry about. ='(

I really do hope this does well though...Thank you for the review. Good luck as well!

...

Pieces like this make me wonder if I still have a chance at the MAC8... This is amazing. I know what it feels like to be stuck on a piece of music and not know what to add... I have at least 6 half-written songs waiting to be finished, but I don't know how I'm gonna do it. Anyway, glad you managed to put this together, although most of your pieces probably could have fit the bill for MAC8. Good luck. :)

I can surely relate to having unfinished songs. I must have over 200 songs I've started and never finished. Most of them are only about 30 seconds long, but a few have potential. I made it a goal to write a song a day at one point, which is why I have so many short and unfinished projects. >.<

Thank you for the review. Good luck in MAC8 as well!

Such a strong piece.

Wow, where do I begin. This is simply breathtaking. The emotional power of it rushes over you from the moment that first note is struck. I think you communicated your feelings perfectly. There's just something about the composition that makes me feel a sadness not brought on by the world or its continuous cycle, but by the actions I was foolish enough to take. It stirs the memories of my mistakes, and reminds me of all that I've lost due to them. Some would say those aren't emotions they want to relive, but I think it's important to remember where we've gone wrong, so that we can look to a better future. Brilliant and powerful work sir. You're clearly VERY talented for someone so young (I took a peak at your profile). I'll most definitely keep an eye out for your work. Best of luck in the contest. :)

This is truly a touching review. Thank you for taking the time to write it.

I had a very specific emotion in mind as I wrote this: remorse. The fact that you felt that emotion pouring out tells me that I was succesful in communicating this feeling. I would also agree about remembering where we've gone wrong in order to secure a brighter future. If it weren't for the mistakes I've made, I wouldn't have built any character. I wouldn't be the person I am today. This song wouldn't even exist. I appreciate this review and also hope this does well in the contest. :P

Only complaint...

Not long enough, and not enough of them.

Explanation: I want it longer and I want more of this. It is very moving and tear jerking. Please submit this to BMI and try to get it on a movie/Video Game sound track. This is absolutely superb 10/10 5/5 and fav'd

Thank you, that means a lot to me. I'm not familiar with BMI, but I googled it. Is it Broadcast Music Incorperated? Or Body Mass Index? >_> (Lame joke, I know) I'm looking at the website right now and will see about submitting this. Thank you for the suggestion!

Oh wow..

Sad is right. I can see this piece being played after a loved one lost some one. This is an amazing and very emotional piece and you captured the exact movement, tone, beat, etc. and you made this. This is an amazing piece and I am favoring this. Great job. I can't stop listening to this. I'm really moved by it. Again, awesome job.

10 / 10

It's great to see that you have been so moved by it. That makes my day! :)
Death isn't really what I had in mind. I composed this with the emotion of guilt being prevalent. Read the author's comments to see what I mean.

Thanks for the review,
