Hey, I would make a Windows Wars 2 now that Windows 8 is released.
How about making a Windows Wars 2 that uses all, I repeat, all, of the Windows sounds.

Overall, 5/5 and 10/10, you definitely deserve it. I can tell you worked quite hard on this. Keep up the great work.
Oh wow, that's a huge compilation!
You know, it's been years since I last made a Windows song. Maybe I should revisit and give it another shot.
Thanks for reviewing this old track haha.
The start is actually pretty good. Drums are usually doing their job properly by now. I imagine you could have made a better song by just replacing everything with actual instruments. After the third one there wasn't really a reason to keep up the gimmick. And hey the instruments don't clash very much at all this time compared to the last one. Your melodies are coming along a bit too.
At this point I started getting some sense of how to write a decent melody. And some of the melodies here aren't bad. I know the whole Windows effects idea was getting way too redundant by the third one, but I really wanted to make a track with sounds from various versions of Windows.
I have no idea how but some of the melodies here are STILL stuck in my head.
Can someone tell me how to make a song?
I will post a song ASAP. At first, I was a bit nervous about how it turn out. But seing your songs has inspired me. I will start working on a remix. Don't know when I will be done...
Well I wish you good luck with that! Since it's your first song you'll have to wait for it to get past approval, which means audio moderators will check out your track and make sure it doesn't break any rules. Usually this can take from a few days to weeks/months, but I just so happen to be an audio moderator so if you want me to approve your track straight away just ask!
Anyway, thanks for yet another review!
I never thought hearing windows error noises could be a good thing, but you sure proved me wrong there! Very clever idea as well. Very creative as well. I like the use of the sounds, it is really good, cant really think of anything that would make it better. Making it out of windows sounds restricts you a lot on possibilities I guess, but you seamed to have pulled it off quite nicely!
Using sounds to make a song is by no means original, but this one is probably one of the better ones! Good job there 5/5 and 10/10
Haha thanks! This is most likely one of my better and more original old songs, although looking back the melodies and structure are pretty much all over the place.
In any case, thanks a lot for the review!
Once again, i am speechless
Title says it all, i am amazed how great this is.
Thanks! I'm surprised many people still like this with it being so old :P.
Glad you enjoyed it!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
