HUGE thanks to camoshark and his friends in the brass section and camoshark himself for the dumbek playing c: THANK YOU CASH ILY <3

I should've spent more time on the vocals. :C I will eventually redo them but this is the heart of the song.

EDIT: FIXED but mix was still preeetty rushed
EDIT2: better vocals, better mix!


It's lately the moon seems so boring, so dreary
My webbed feet are weary, so fly me to Blue

Comets can't compare to the vast view
The big Blue calls my name now, she's speaking to me

Though lately the big Blue seems hostile and a bit scary
My foreign figure is frightful, but I'm afraid..

So scared of all those bipeds, they're monsters
The big Blue needs more time now, some time to grow,
Before I leave here

I'll need some kind of disaster
A guaranteed extinction
But I won't need any help,
They'll off themselves

My moon stuck in stillframe, it's lonely and freezing
Maybe that near star will warm me and love me come morning
Should it fail, I'll know the thing to do:
Fly to Blue

I listen to and vote 5 on this every day.
It calms my morning routine.

Kor-Rune responds:

Wow, thank you! I'm glad your mornings are less intense. Thanks for listening and voting, for real

This is just simply the greatest thing to happen on Newgrounds ever imo.
Especially this weird quirk at the beginning, it kept feeling like the first verse was going to start again and again, but you like, kept denying that with the guitar, which was actually really cool.

Kor-Rune responds:

Thanks for the kind review! I hope I jazzed up your evening at least momentarily. c:

the mix and production on this is pure gold

Kor-Rune responds:

thanks jp! unfortunately, the project was a huge mess, and incredibly hard to navigate. I'm suuuch a slob.

And now the Weather forecast in your area....

Here's your 5 day weather forecast!

That is what went through my head when I heard the first 3 verses of this song! XD
Nice song man!

Nice with a more straightforward jazz fusion piece after the more technically oriented prog showcases from the first 3 rounds. This strikes me as more well-rounded and structured than your earlier songs which I'm sure is what you were going for after review upon review criticizing scatterbrainedness and disjointedness and all that. I personally didn't mind all that too much, and I'm also a bit more skeptical of the change in style - I find this to be a decidedly less varied and novel piece, and got a bit tired around the 5:03 mark after hearing the central melody for the umpteenth time. There is also less variation in intensity when it comes to instrumentation and production. The solos and instrumental parts were not as exciting and meaningful. But note that all of the above is me comparing this song to your first few, which I was relatively ecstatic about. It's a fantastic piece on its own terms.

The instrumental side of things is wonderful as usual, the drums in particular have a glassy transparent quality that I love. Nothing negative to point out there.
