Well, I had just finished my last song, and I had used up every last shred of inspiration.

But then, one night, I began playing on my piano. A lot of thoughts came through my mind. When I came to, I realized that I was playing this song.

This song is comprised of three piano melodies. All three convey moments when time simply stands still.

The first melody portrays sorrow. It isn't written in a minor key, so it doesn't sound depressing, but this tune comes to mind when I think about those times someone receives really bad news. My friend accidentally left her medicine in her purse at school, and extreme disciplinary actions were taken against her. Another very close friend of mine had her cousin taken from her. He had committed suicide at 15 years old.

The second melody symbolizes euphoria. I feel this when something very good has happened. I feel like I'm on top of the world. It's those times when you see that person you've been crushing on looking at you the same way. It's those times when you see a newborn baby opening his or her eyes for the first time.

The third melody conveys happy memories. I'm a very nostalgic person, and there are those times when I just want to go back. Back to when time were just great. This school year is coming to close, and I know I'll miss those Seniors. I wouldn't mind it if time would stop for a few more days.

In the end, all three melodies are blended together. I had hoped that they would harmoniously merge, but I'm not quite sure if I succeeded.

This has been quite an experience, making this song. This song goes out to all of those moments.

"Enjoy the moment with all your might. Whether it's gloomy, or whether it's bright."

Very well done

The blend of the three melodies is really a pleasure to listen to. I don't think there would be any other way to improve upon this concept.

It's interesting how music like these can be made from just a night playing while having a lot on your mind.

My only complaint would be the lack of experienced reviews. Without them, improvements and inspirations could be harder to find.

5/5

Wonders

You are without a doubt, Amazing. I am impressed that you came along quite well. Everyone of one those speechless pieces you have composed were as though they were lifelong lessons that were compressed within the matter of minutes.( I hope you get the point because I'm liking making no sense.) You are getting better and better at this. I know that I won't get up to your level, but I will still try. I have really enjoyed this piece. You are an Amazing composer, and I would most definitely hear more from your genius. :)

Thank you! I'm happy that you liked it.

I put a lot of work into this, so I appreciate you taking your time to review my song.

I rarely get reviews, so thanks again!


Hard work at its best.

I don't think this concept could have been better executed. The blend at the end is pretty fluid and deciphering them is an experience in itself. Great Job!

I'm glad that you enjoyed it as much as you did!

I'm also very pleased that tossing those three melodies together worked as well as it did.

Thanks for the review! I really appreciate it.
