secret santa submission for A-zu-ra, who asked for "the sappiest R&B song about some silly thing like a cabin in the woods or a trip to Massachuusets"

hope it satisfies!


i was lookin’ online
what did i happen to find
the destination of a lifetime
and now that is the reason why i’m
tryna push you to come on with me and go be a
happy person in this local utopia
it’s just down the road
ha, i said ‘road’
that’s a joke and it’s funny ‘cause we’re going to rhode island

that's where i wanna be
the state upon the sea
where life is truly free
it's the littlest state with the biggest heart
if you take me there we'll never be apart
it's a paradise as far as the eye can see
rhode island's for me

it’s got nature trails to follow
it’s got providence but not squalor
and india point park and the beavertail lighthouse
and one of their senators is literally named whitehouse
we can visit the museums at RISD
or talk to the students at RISD
i just really wanna visit RISD
because their mascot is a scrotum

rhode island’s got the tennis hall of fame
and concert halls to entertain
and three whole stations for the train
and also an improper name
it’s not even an island
why are you called an island
the majority of you is connected to the contiguous united states but that’s okay ‘cause you’re rhode island

I remember when I first heard this in chips I just lost my mind, it was so funny!
And it's so good aaaa
Like, this has not right being this goddamn catchy.


God this is lovely. It's very free-form and unshackled. Feels very "lose yourself in the song".
Love this!
Great work!

hmmmm scoping out the competition????? I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING

but honestly tysm for the feedback—looking forward to what you're gonna come up with for this matchup!! good luck :D :D

Now I actually want to visit rhode island lol.
You intro gave me flash backs to ASMR funky kong for a minute.
Awesome job dude!

Ahahaha oh man I love this so much XD.

Super fun track! The whispered lyrics at the beginning are a little hard to make out, but otherwise I have absolutely no complaints. Your vocal range is great, combining a rich baritone with a strong falsetto. Do you take voice lessons? I love all the vocal layering and call-and-response effects ("that's right!", etc.). The instrumental is smooth, too. Reminds me of the soundtrack of an 80s sitcom. Great comedic value too - I burst out laughing at "their mascot is a scrotum." Just of curiosity, have you ever been to Rhode Island? XD Admittedly, I'm a little disappointed that you didn't take up the opportunity to write a song about my home state of Massachusetts, but seriously: fantastic track here, LE! ^_^

LunacyEcho responds:

Thanks for the review as usual! Haven't been taking vocal lessons haha, but definitely have been trying to get better at singing recently (this song pretty much hits both the upper and lower limits of my range too)

And heyy Ylvis already did the Massachusetts one! It's a riot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvUMV1N7eGM
