This is my submission to MAC 09 "Valoltines"

Love... the most beautiful feeling, a feeling that gives you sometimes wings, sometimes erections... and fills your heart with joy, happiness, pink stars, and heart-shaped butterflies...
As most of you already know, there is a very strong symbol of love that have it's own cult here on Newgrounds, well, this song is dedicated to that very symbol of love and to all those crazy little things that people do, feel and share for the sake of LOVE.
Here's to you all crazy love birds, Happy Valentines !

This song is supposed to be a parody, so, here we go with a... listener's guide to the penicorn's epic journey through love songs, a list of things that i'm mocking/quoting in my track:
- Barry White (the deep voice in the beginning)
- Kenny G (the syrupy soprano saxophone theme)
- Linkin' Park (the "radio" speaking voice repeating useless what is singing)
- All shitty pop songs that have lyrics with absolutely no meaning, sense and logic
- All the "EPIC" soundtrackish NG trend of Hans Zimmer/ John Williams wannabes
- "I Will Always Love You"
- Beethoven's 9-th Symphony
- Beatles "All You Need is Love" and "She Loves You"

So, lets put the LOL into VaLOLtines ;)

Lyrics:
(Barry White style - There comes a time in every man's life when he finds the right woman... well, baby, you're the one. You make me feel butterflies in my stomach. When you're around I FEEL LIKE A PENICORN)

-chorus-
You Make me feel (backing: you make me feel, make me feel)
Like a penicorn (backing: you make me feel, make me feel)
You Make me feel (backing: you make me feel, make me feel)
Like a penicorn (backing: you make me feel, make me feel)

-verse-
Strawberry clouds, so sweet (rap: strawberry clouds, so sweet)
Baby I'm at your feet (rap: listen to my heart beat)
Butterflies in my head (rap: butterflies in my head)
I wanna hold your hand

(dialog:
-ah... that was very beautiful, nice lyrics too
-but pookie-wookie, this not really rhymed too good, you
know, "hand" with, with "head"...
-hm... I guess you're right... well then let's stop talking and play a guitar solo.)

-guitar solo-
(dialog:
-mmm... yes, oh yes, oh faster, faster... well, don't tell me you're done already.
-oh, no baby, I'm just getting started.
"radio announcer"
-So here we go with the "Epic Symphony of Love" !)
...

(dialog:
-oh, yes, you're an animal !
-well, yes, I'm a penicorn)

-chorus-
You Make me feel (backing: you make me feel, make me feel) - (rap: you make me feel, you make me feel)
Like a penicorn (backing: you make me feel, make me feel) - (rap: flying high in the sky)
You Make me feel (backing: you make me feel, make me feel) - (rap: you make me feel, you make me feel)
Like a penicorn (backing: you make me feel, make me feel) - (rap: flying high in the sky)
(meanwhile "The Beatles" who took the time machine just to get on Newgrounds somehow, come in singing "All you need is love" while John Lennon forget what is going on and sings "She loves you")
(dialog:
-Who are those hairy little guys?
-Those are "The Beatles" !
-Never heard of them ...

(after song finished, John Lennon jumped on the penicorn and flied away, so we had to send a clone back in time to be shot.
Happy End !)

Happy Valentines ! Love is all you need !

Awesome

Nice job, like the sax since its my second instrument. Its got a nice sound to it, I'm probably going to be blasting this on Valentines Day.


sorohanro responds:

Thanx, I got inspired by DSK SaxophoneZ (it's not a real saxophone), if you get a date with someone who makes you feel like... that should be the best song for Valentines ;)

Absolutely Brilliant

Yo Soro,

This song is really fun to listen to. Amusing lyrics, driving drums, chunky guitar and good choice of samples really make this song stand out. Not to mention the guitar solo :P tasty. I also like the composition and arrangement; each part is different but they flow together well.

I agree somewhat with Blackattackbitch that the guitar didnt stand out as much during the orchestral interlude but if you didnt want it to then its fine. The end was a slight disappointing as I was thinking about another epic guitar solo fading out; but its funny so I guess that makes up for it somewhat.

Anyway really superb job Ill be downloading this one. Good luck for the VaLOLtines competition I think this is a very strong contender for first!


sorohanro responds:

I'll send this track to Eurovision together with a link to the penicorn threads :))

I was gonna jump on you....

For classifying it as pop, but then I realized that it doesn't even matter. This song is fucking hilarious!

And aside from that, the music is amazing! I can't even turn my critical ear on because I was laughing so hard.

(harder....harder....don't tell me you're already done! Fucking golden!)

Okay, now time for the serious review.
Great instrument choice. Vocals sound comical though. I don't know whether that was intentional or not, but if you were going for a serious note on that part, didn't go too well lol.

Now on the orchestral part, the dynamics should have been stressed on that part. Instead, you had a few sections that were way too quiet and a few sections that weren't loud enough. And the guitar shouldn't stand out in lieu of all the epic instruments in the background.

But I have to say, I absolutely love this song.

10/10 5/5 faved and downloaded.

Nice mastering except for the orchestral part.

If you don't mind, could you check out my MAC9 second entry, Wine & Candlelight? I would appreciate that.


sorohanro responds:

Thanx, really appreciate your words.
I edited today the info's about the track, so, check the "listener's guide to the penicorn's epic journey through love songs".
No serious things intended ;)

I love these mac9 submissions!!

lol - I was surprised you were advertising in the forum thread, but it deserves more recognition.

Of course lots of bits i lol'd - and it decided to become all orchestral around 2:30 and I seemed to get lost xD

The guitars were amazing - great work;
wierd lyrics though^^

(Please if you could listen to my "Is This True Love?" that would be grand ^^

Very Nice!

10/10 5/5 even if the voice sounded a little too deep, haha, almost on the verge of weird. The chorus kinda sounds like a blend of Weird Al and Blue Oyster Cult.


sorohanro responds:

He he ... thanx ...
The track is supposed to remind also of Barry White (the King of Love), Kenny G (the King of Porn Groove) and all blend of tasteless pop crap love songs that poisoned minds all over the world ...
