Hey! I was searching for a song to make a crash level for and this is perfect! Only prob is im not sure your okay with it and it only accepts songs with a code 6 characters long while ur song has 7

That recurring melody is everything in this piece. The way it's carried by resonant instruments allows it to cut through emotions, tug on heartstrings, that sort of thing. I love the way it's accompanied by the syncopated piano chords, too. The introduction is well constructed.

The piece has a lot of great buildup, with those filter sweeps, denser rhythms and the sudden dropout to the vocal clip. It accumulates so much anticipation. I just wish the drops weren't so homogenized. Hearing the same melody carry over in two different drops, presented so similarly with each other, makes the piece, as a whole, feel underwhelming because the buildup promises so much more. It's not necessarily bad; it just makes the composition feel stuck in one place when it tends to go towards other directions.

I enjoyed this entry a lot; I think it captures the sweet wholesomeness that I get from the art, especially with its musical ideas.

I forgot to leave a comment but I love this song so much. I'm really happy that my illustration inspired you keep up the good work.
