So Lady Arsenic released a song today which can be found here.

I've always loved this song, it's just a gorgeous melody, a pretty haunting lyrics. Just the way I like it.

Anyway I spent a few hours today adding a few layers of my own. Some woodwinds, some strings, and just a tad bit of choirs.

I can spend days, maybe weeks on this piece but sadly I don't have much more time so I wanted to both spread awareness of this song and do my own little thing on the side.

Lyrics (copied from original song)
Mile by mile and day by day,
The Lonely Bard goes on.
Through the wind and rain he makes his way
And sings his mournful song

To every village high and low
He went to sing his tale of woe.
He never had a place to call home
And wandered through the hills all alone

From verdant spring to bleak chilly fall,
He followed naught but his muse's call.
No shelter had he from the bitter cold
And perished in Winter's icy hold.

I see him in my dreams and hear his cry,
Another sleepless night goes by.
His tune, it haunts my every waking hour!
No solace can I find from his power

Long ago and far away
Upon a frozen moor,
He lost his life one tragic day
And haunts me evermore


..... Unspeakable beauty.... I don't know what to say..... o(â*¥ï¹â*¥)o so beautiful

Thanks! Naturally Lady deserves the lion's share of the praise. I'm glad you enjoyed the track and thanks again for the review!

I love the vocals. They're soft and human, talented, but not making a show of it like an opera singer. I love that kind of voice to death and I wish there was more of it.

I love the melody. Bard music has always been a favorite of mine. It somehow always produces some of the prettiest melodies.

I love the lyrics. They fit the melody perfectly and are poetic to read on their own, though they sound even better in the song.

This is my favorite song on Newgrounds, and I don't see that changing any time soon.
