This is another old song I found sitting on my USB stick. I actually had a few variants in mind for this particular melody but I spent so much time trying to get it "perfect" that I ended up dropping it out of frustration. Listen, kids, don't do perfectionism like me. Don't even pretend to do it as a quirky trait or something, that quality is legitimately detrimental to your work output. What you end up with is a bunch of unfinished projects and a sense of never accomplishing anything in the first place.

I see you're posting more stuff Nabella! That makes me very happy!

Nabella responds:

Thanks, dude. The Art Office Hours Stream and Pico Day 2021 inspired me to try and post more often.

If I disappear someday, at least my profile won't be empty!

This song would have sounded so good with a light orchestra and a vibrato heavy cello and violin playing minums through each bar while the kalimba does its thing. Maybe even another kalimba to harmonise and add some rhythm. Also, the first half is dangerously similar to another piece I've heard. I'm thinking it sounds a lot like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v712NiVK5uY but there's one that has the same melody as your piece but I just can't find it. It half reminds me of a battle block theatre song. Maybe one in the lobby, I'm not sure. Even if it's intentional or not, there's a song out there that sounds incredibly similar to this. You're just lucky none of us knows the name of it.

Response: Hmm, I don't think it's those that I'm thinking of. That melody sounds really familiar. Like that one song with that weird frog riding on some robot thing running from robots (I know, very descriptive). I'm not sure. Some knowledgeable wizard of a person will appear from the dark and discover the song that I'm thinking of.

Nabella responds:

I just realized what it sounded like after looking at some of the recommended videos in your video link, lmao.


I swear I didn't intend this. While I was making it, I was trying to mimic all the music box songs I've heard from these YouTube channels.

I guess I subconsciously inserted a part of Toby Fox's 'His Theme' into this? Or maybe, because of the lack of instruments like you mentioned, the melody doesn't stand out very well from other music box songs?

Honestly, thanks for pointing this out. I don't think I would've noticed the similarities on my own.

(And yeah, I'll be sure to add some other instruments down the line.)

those first 10 seconds sound like another song but i just can't get the name of it

it alright

Nabella responds:

Thanks, dude.

Refer to above, I think I figured out the song it sounds similar to.
