Happy Birthday to Me.

Just a quick thing I doodled together in a short amount of time.
Sorry about the click :/

It's only the lyrics to this song that are copyrighted, so there's no issue there.


I didn't even recognize it as "happy birthday" at first. It's quite solemn and even regal in a way. Makes me think of a desolate, snow-covered kingdom with an ancient castle looming oppressively overhead. I understand this was a quick thing, but I'm not sure I like the instruments too much (or maybe it's just the way you balanced/mastered them, idk). Still, interesting mood here. Congrats on finding a way of making a song that literally has the word "happy" in its title...well...extremely depressing! :O

You're not really meant to recognize the melody at first! That's what makes this interesting, you know XD
The regal is surely because of all the brass. I can kinda see the snow thingy. Interestingly enough, the brass is pretty warm in a way though, and the harp is very similar to the one track that made you think about a more tropical landscape! :p

I don't like the instruments that much either. That said, it's kind if the point. I wanted this to feel heavy, and perhaps a bit unpleasant too. Bu I should've used something else than a harp for the melody; that's for sure.

Depressing and hilarious at the same time.

Hahha, yeah. I really wish I would have put more work into this, as so many people came to listen to it! XD
Oh well, there's always next year, unless I suddenly die of course, which I hope I don't :(

You're getting old. Got any grey hairs yet?

Happy birthday, bud! Although, this is a pretty melancholy birthday song :/

Luckily, I don't have any grey hairs yet. I'd be fine with grey though, as long as I get to keep any hair at all XD

Thank you, friend :D

This sounds like such a dramatic and depressing birthday song... o.o;;;
It loops well though, I didn't notice til third time around and I'm going "this is getting repetitive".
In any case, happy birthday~! You're 25% done with your life! :P

Thanks Phyrnna :3
I made this just for fun, but as so many people seem to have found it, I realize I should've put much more focus on the quality :)
Yeah, I try to make my loops loop well. I actually made another song today which actually loops much more smoothly, but I'll probably wait a few days before uploading it :p

I was really confused by how everyone chose to leave seemingly negative birthday remarks; only now did I realize that it is because I made such a negatively loaded song! I really derped there for a moment XD

Now, let us make the best of what we have left of our short lives ;)
