A song for my upcoming choose your own adventure book Killing Hitler with Praise and Fire A Time Travel Paradox.
If you could go back in time and,
Change the course of history,
Would you change everything you could?
Or are you unsure of whether or not you would?
Can you feel,
The power at your finger tips?
Taking part,
In a crazy time traveling trip!
You could change the course of history with one slip,
Decide the fate of humans with a single coin flip.
What if I told you,
You could prevent disaster?
On a global scale?
By altering the fate of an Austrian-born German male?
Who will re-commit atrocities if you fail?
Yes, I'm talking about Hitler,
A horrendously evil dictator!
Are you prepared to change the fate,
Of the world's most infamous hater!
Will you divert the course of his career?
Will you make him distracted?
Make sure his ideology is not enacted?
Or simply kick him in his rear?
The choice is up to you!
Killing Hitler With Praise & Fire,
A Time Travel Paradox,
Where you choose what to do!
[big chorus acapella section]
Will you divert the course of his career?
Will you make him distracted?
Make sure his ideology is not enacted?
Or simply kick him in his rear?
Decisions, decisions,
Can I choose them all?
Hell yes!
So many different ways to make Hitler fall!
Multiple read throughs,
You cannot lose,
You can only find,
More awesome ways to be amused!
Educational? Yea!
Inspirational? For sure!
Confrontational? Yes!
Controversial? Of course!
You will laugh,
You will cry,
You might make Hitler die,
Or you can even try,
To make him harmless as a fly!
Choose your own adventure,
You will always remember,
This adventure that you won't forget,
Do you think you can handle it?
Going back in time,
Doing things you've never done before,
Open up the door,
Even if you are unsure!
Time traveling,
To defeat a super evil entity,
It's the most legendary,
Semi-fictional history story,
you'll ever fucking reeeeeeeead!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The music is really good until 1:07, somehow you managed to have a super interesting and serious verse and then fall into a comedic chorus, personally i would have liked to see the song proceed the more serious style and have a catchy intense Chorus, i think the verse deserves that.
That verse has sometimes too much lyric for the song (noticeable in " whether or not you would?" or "of an Austrian-born", not something very important though since its barely noticeable.
The lyrics themselves are very good and smart in the verse, and vocals are above average in all the song specially in the final section.
The structure i kinda identify myself with it, im the same way doing my songs, all different parts and not much structure xD But since this sounds more of a flash or movie song than a normal song i guess you cant be criticized by that.
The rap part is well done and fits pretty well, its pretty good both instrumentally and vocally and the buildup starting at 02:32 is a nicely done.
The last part is really awesome and explores your vocals in a really tasty way.
So....overall i love the verse and the final section and i think the song would benefit greatly by having a second verse related to the first instead of rap and more serious lyrics in the chorus.
Love the vocals, love the instrumental and the mix is really good.
Awesome job Ulfus!

I would have kept it serious but as it's part of an advertising video I'm making for my choose your own adventure book I couldn't have it all serious as some of the choices in the book are well quite silly. Such as making Hitler gay, making him too fat to enter WW1, getting him hitched with lots of kids pre WW2, etc.

Thanks for the thorough review

Once again, extremely clever and creative lyrics. :D The instrumentals were also very good, and I appreciated the acapella/breakdown section, which added a lot to the structure of an otherwise dynamically uniform piece. Maybe it was a little overly ambitious of me to criticize the vocals last time, as the focus of the piece is clearly on the humorous lyrics themselves. Excellent work! :D Have you ever considered making an animation to go along with these tracks?

I have a cintiq tablet though I don't have much experience with animation, might try and make something simple.
