This song is dedicated and in loving tribute to my dearly departed dad. You'll be missed, pops.

+ R.I.P. Andy Durnford : November 11, 1950 - December 4, 2009 +

I started this song after returning home from Florida where my father had been staying. I gotta say, it's a relief to have a creative outlet such as music for helping to channel grief and the other miseries of life. I would definitely not feel the way I do about life if not for my music.

I got the intro and chorus/verse done before I left for a vacation to St. Maarten and created the bridge and fleshed out the rest of the track when I returned, more relaxed and not so crazy. This is probably my most full-sounding and properly eq'd piece to date. Have spent the past 2 days almost solid working on it to get it how I wanted.

Kinda sad, but uplifting melody -- definitely catchy though. :d As usual, made entirely in Reason 4.0.The intro is definitely daft punk influenced though I came up with it quite by accident when I was messing around with the sequencer in Thor.

The two organs are courtesy of the Electro-Mechanical Refill pack that's currently free for download for registered Reason users on the propellerheads website -- it's sick! Tried a little something different with the drums this time, I'm loving rex files.

As usual, please rate/review/enjoy. :)


Nice job!

I loved the guitar! I wish I had a guitar vst like this one. Mine sucks :(. I have realstrat... pretty sucky. A perfect song to hear while driving at night. Great job! :)

durn responds:

:) Thanks Dr-Slump. It's one of the Reason standard NN-XT patch, the Strat+Trem, routed through the Thor for a more interesting filter automation during the bridge.


have to agree with zekee even though it wouldnt be my first choice of style this is an amazingly polished sounding track with hints of daft punk


durn responds:

:) Thanks Fums. I tried hard to get the sound crisp on this one. :)


Incredibly well done. The mastering and overall sound that is going on indeed sounds professional. I really love the organs!

Great job with this one, and i have to say Im very sorry for you dad, I can only imagine how it feels..

durn responds:

:) Thanks zekee.
