Sadness and Sorrow v.2

Author Comments

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?


That was calming really

hmmm... why I'm giving this a 9? It loops perfectly, too perfectly, I didn't notice it was just a 1:38 length tune. But if someone were to down load this, it'd have to be longer cause :
The calming, relaxing and sadness coming from this piece is just so great it has to be longer and end well enough to notice it really did finish.
The atmosphere in this song is both sad and relaxing. Why?
Here's why : (A small story)
Walking down the path in the local park, you look around you seeing people smiling, happy. It's summer, a time of sunshine and fun. But you alone can't spend it with anyone just like the people around you. Thinking of that, you start remembering the hardships you went through since childhood, all the pain, the sorrows, the betrayal and the suffering you experienced. You look up the sky, seeing clouds that are shaping into the most hurtful moments. You ask yourself in your mind : "Why?" But get no reply. A tear runs down from your eye as you look back down, halting you from continuing to walk forward. You sit down on the park bench watching everyone else still happy. You look up towards the sun and notice it's great shining beauty, and remember the good times. You smile and wipe your tear from your face and push out a breath. You stare off at the sunset sitting on the park bench still awaiting for the response of your question.
Yeah, all this came to mind during this piece played and looped, lol.

It's a soothing tune, nothing else seems to be able to describe it better.

The short length and subtle ending allows for the piece easy utilization in flash scenes. If I were to flesh it out as a stand alone piece, it would definitely need more length and a definitive end. That was a great point that you brought up!

Your scene is lovely and gives me a distinct image. Such things tend to inspire me to compose. Thank you for the excellent review. :)


IT's awesome.sad....love it.

BlazingDragon responds:

I've got more like it on newgrounds. Hope you enjoy them as much as this!

Watch the news!

watching the news.
Japanese government has enlarged the evacuationradius around the damaged nuclear powerplant from 10 to 20 km!
Cars were tossed around like toys.
Trains dissapeared.
Bridges and highways are gone..
Once again, i've come to realize: were completely helpless against natures' wrath.
Great song.

It's astounding that even one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world is relatively defenseless against the wrath of nature. I find it humbling, really. Thanks for the review.

Incredible, just incredible.

I've come up for a movie involving this, and anyone who sees this can make it. It's flixel, and it's just flashes of text saying things like "He knew he couldn't save her, but he felt that she was his one responsibility, his on true connection to life. He felt that he deserved to be with her more." It then pans out to reveal the writing on a tombstone. I'm not very good in flash, so anyone can make this.

That's depressing, but fitting to the music. Thank you for the scene!


Few songs can move someone like this one can. The piano playing is beautiful and I think this can connect with a moment in life that everyone has experienced. It really gave me the chills, and it is one of the few songs I don't believe can be improved upon.
