A remix of an old Irish folk song called "The girl I left behind"



I like the leads and the simultaneous melodies, the detuned gives it an interesting color.

I don't like the middle section / dissonance

Very original. I agree with the guy before me, you should make more Irish remixes.

I'm working on one now, I'll try to stick to the original melodies as much as possible next time, glad you liked it.

LOL dude irish music fucking rocks. You dont hear it that much on this site but now I remember how much I love it. I dont know what makes irish music so distinct but you can tell its irish from a mile away. I noticed that at certain parts you started to kind of stray away from the irish music and went into a little new age drum thing. I mean it was good but I was disapointed when the irishness started to go away. Anyway it was a great song and worthy of my 5. Good job.

DjHyperCouch responds:

The Irishness did come back at the end, though the beginning and end melodies are so similar you probably, and understandably, dismissed as the song just looping. I also just decided to do something original with the middle, because the actual song "The girl I left behind" is quite repetitive, And I also thought the song was almost 'too happy', so I decided to add a dark secondary melody line to balance it out. But when people think of Irish drinking songs, they tend to think of this melody, so I decided to do something familiar. Glad you love it. Even though it's my song, I never get tired of listening to it. I love Irish music as well and might make more "Irish raves", which in my opinion should be a new genre.
