Hahahaha this is like some retarded victorian or edwardian ballad.. which naturally would have been underground as minor notes were a big NONO then..
I love the visual picture you gave with a somehow pleasant feel to it in a minor song.. very interesting clash of cheerful and depressing hehe..
No more prescription anti-depressants for you :P
Haha, cool review!
I had more the songs of Schubert in my mind. Minor here doesn't represent a depressing feel, more like being angry and on the edge. Still the clash of all kinds of things is there and I guess making a contrast worked very well for me.
No more anti depressants? You remember what I pitched in the nac discussion thread? Lol, cause if it fits the december nac I will probably do that.
To FaeryTaleAdventurer: "Blow" is one of the slang words for cocaine. See the Johnny Depp film, "Blow". Lol.
Anyway, this song is brilliant. You definitely should do more 19th songs with hilarious lyrics. It just... it WORKS. (:
Thanks for the nice words and encouraging me! There is a writers' forum on here after all... maybe they could do some hysterical poems for me.
I can't help it, there's not really anything particularly impressive here (aside from the singing, double props on that) but I give you respect for the humor. Frkin hilarious, i can't help but laugh when I listen to this. Plus, being high + opera singing + classical piano = mass hilarity. I wanna go ride my bike now, lolz.
So you saw what I did there? Great! It's wonderful this little thing actually makes people laugh. I was a little afraid you guys would go "the fuck is that?!" and bomb it right away. So props to newgrunds, I guess.
Now I'm starting to think if I should do more like that: kinda like 19th century songs with hilarious lyrics. It was so much fun doing this and I get lots of benevolent reviews for that. Also nobody else is doing it.
For a brain on drugs, a nice effect seems to be some well focused piano playing. Initially thought it was going to be imaginary lyrics until I heard the voice.
Not sure what it means to be "on blow", but this really is somewhat random and unusual.
Thanks for the review! Short answer: unusual? Maybe. Random? No. My thought was that this kind of music best represents the smugness of your average cokehead. And you can bet your hiney you are well focused after a couple of lines :D
The lyrics are very nice to hear although you could speak a bit louder into the microphone actually to make it clearer I think. The piano is very rapid fire and goes real fast, I can just see someone playing it real fast. Kind of feels like some sort of boss battle song as well. This is a very strange yet simple entry. Not bad at all.
Overall, nice piano and vocals, great work. Just be a bit louder is all. Nice work here.
Thank you :)
hm, I thought I sang the lyrics, not speak them :D anyway I sing quite loudly, I was even afraid my neighbours would come over and ask if I had gone insane completely. But what can you expect with a 15,- USB mic? It sucks. Of course the singing would sound brilliant, clear and I'd hit every note with a better mic, haha!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
