That's a backhanded compliment if ever I heard one.
"I was wondering if you'd like to try Magic Mushrooms"
"Oooh I dont know. Sounds a bit scary"

Listening and liking. Refreshing to hear song structures like these for a change.

Yeah, but he's not wrong. I'm not a singer and I don't pretend to be one.

12th track from my upcoming CD "2020"

I seem to be going through one of my "do weird and/or stupid shit" phases. I'm sure I'll break out of it soon. Oddly, I put a lot of work into this one which has 25 tracks and tons of automation.

Biddy Biddy Boom Boom

Horizon's rising
Earth is resizing
And I do my thing

Biddy Biddy Boom Boom
Biddy Biddy Boom Boom
Oh oh oh oh
Biddy Biddy Boom Boom
Biddy Biddy Boom Boom
Oh oh oh oh

The wars are raging
They're so engaging
And I'm here saying

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental Break

Repeat Chorus

The world is ending
But I'm still trending
To you I'm sending

A moderator deleted it because it was off topic and trolling. I am no longer fighting with you guys. I am simply reporting your nasty posts and letting the mods deal with them.

You'll have to look somewhere else for your entertainment.

13th track from my upcoming CD "2020"

Seem to be going through a phase right now. This one's just flat out ugly. I'm sure I'll snap out of this "mood" soon and get back to writing things closer to my norm.

My Bad Baby

You wanna blame me for the birds that don't sing
You wanna blame me for that phony diamond ring
You wanna blame me for everything
Well my bad baby
Bad baby

You wanna blame me for the morning rain
You wanna blame me for your constant pain
You wanna blame me again and again
Well my bad baby
Bad baby

My bad baby
Ain't nothing ever good enough for you
My bad baby
Ain't no sense arguing you know that it's true

You wanna blame me for the world and its woes
You wanna blame me for your friends and your foes
You wanna blame me cause that's how it goes
Well my bad baby
Bad baby

Instrumental Break

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Last Verse

Sounds a bit distorted, unless it's my system.
Currently trying to turn noise into music. :neutral:

Sounds distorted to me too.
The track before it is a bit sparse in the first part, maybe some bass in the first part unless I can’t hear the bass because I’m using speakers. It also reminds me of a band called Superorganism who I recently got into,
Come on, please make a few more weird tracks. I’m always into weird music anyways.
Synth1, PG8X, Dexed, Sound Canvas VA, FB-3x00 series, blooo, scrooo, qyooo, SQ8L, GTG FM4, DSK Asian and Indian DreamZ, and much more VSTs. Casio, Yamaha, Korg, Alesis HW.

@Music Bird & Noodlist

Yes, distorted to hell. I saturated the hell out of the whole thing. It's what I was going for. I needed to get that out of my system.

The track prior, there is bass but it's cut off at 70 hz so there isn't a lot of bottom end.

I'm starting to get away from that whole EDM "bass has to rip through your speakers" stuff and moving towards more of a 60s, 70s mix where the bass wasn't that prominent.

I've got no problem with the distortion, just think that it doesn't always come off - song is a bit too 'nice' for it with the little lead guitar flourishes etc. I always think that for this type of sound you need a bit more evil intent, e.g. like this (which I'm sure they wrote about vurt... :hihi: )

My Pickup...
Like the attempt at a Southern accent! Amusing light-hearted song. Like it.
If a good song tells a story, then I'll give this one high marks!
Liked the guitar instrumental. Fitted really well.
@3:14 a bit too much of an abrupt change for me.
Overall, really liked it. :tu:
