I wanted to do a chiptuney song!

LYRICS:
Life is a game and I don't know how to play it.
Please take my wheel and steer me in the right direction.
When did this all get so complicated?
I feel like I've made all the wrong connections.

-
(Chorus x2)
It doesn't matter anyway,
How you decide to play it.

It doesn't matter anyway,
Just get up and try again.
-

Life is a game and I don't know how to play it.
I wanna give up, but I don't know how to say it.
What's the point of it all when you know nothing matters?
Everybody I know, are they actors?

(Chorus x2)

I like the cute sound effect at the beginning and the rich chords shortly thereafter. The kick drum at :10 sounds a bit over-saturated in the mix, but once the vocals and other drums come in it vibes well with the balance of the texture overall. The artificial vibe of the vocals fits the thematic content well, and I like the rhythmic content too. The riser into 1:17 is a little cheesy, but I like the upbeat feel of the chorus. The way the syllables fall on the “just get up and try again” line is a little clunky rhythmically, but the more I hear it the less unnatural it sounds. I like the added melodic content during the short bridge at 1:50. I liked the variations on the melody at 3:07 during the repetition of the chorus, too. Overall, really strong work here. This piece is well-produced, uplifting, has really cool thematic content, and a great message to boot. Keep up the good work, Karsys! ^_^
