    Nice groove and good choice of vocals, goes together in an unexpected but harmonious way.

    hmmmm.... I will have to research this Paul Harvey character and see what his true intent is all about. The music is good though..

    I really would say - listen to the older stuff of them. Not that i think that the newer isn't good but this older stuff is more raw :)

    While listen to this i had the feeling i listen to that one before. And do you know who did the version i listen to before??? :)this is really YELLO in there best times - Wow. you really made my day with this powerfull song. Not that i would say that you did a cover, no, but you capture all what a great song from Yello would need. Power, cool synth sounds, great beat, special voice and an excellent mix.

    I really in love with this one! Sure a FAV

    stay tuned

    Wow Joe Thank you very much. I know Yello quite well and loved them the moment that single appeared .... The Race. I'm going to have to have a listen to my own piece again now with Yelllo in mind as it never occurred to me!
    That's a huge compliment.

    so god made a farmer, and he made a man with the vision to make this interesting project. i really fux with the vocals you got going on in the already memorizing melody. cant decide which is better, the vocals or that synth you got going on. nice job!

    Thank you for your kind and encouraging comments.
    The voice just struck me as ideal for this kin#d of thing despite or maybe because of it's age but it's content too was fascinating to me.

    That is crazy man, Paul Harvey from way back 1965, i was not even born yet. I got this quot from him online and found very interesting "In times like these it helps to recall there have always been times like these"

    Thanks for your time Greg. The guy apparently was a bit of an American right wing icon which doesn't sit to well with lefty old me but I liked the voice soon as I heard it and the lyrics too. He's done some interesting stuff.
    But as soon as I heard him speaking this I wanted to own it and do something with it.
    Hope you're well and life's treating you good old lizard man.
    No no no any Illuminati hunters out there he's not one of your David Icke type lizards!!!

    The first word that came into mind while listening was "eclectic". Wow man, there are so many sounds and trascks that my two ears just aren't enough to listen to everything the first round :-). The second that came into mind was that I'd love to hear the track 6-8 bpm's faster.

    Having said that, I think the use of these vocals is simply great. Indeed his voice fits the atmosphere of your track perfectly. Very well spotted. Since I'm from The Netherlands, this guy is not known to me, but from now on I will for sure recognize is his voice whenever I hear it. I think it would be really worth it to go along with the track, keep a good eye on the levels, maybe cut a bit in the instrumental part and focus on finishing it. I'dd be really interested in hearing the final result.

    I also can't wait for your track with the vocals of reagan and Thatcher :-).

    I haven't done anymore on this yet.
    Been playing with the Ronny and Maggie thing and I'm not happy with it but I haven't given up yet.

    Doing what you are considering is a cool concept. Paul Hardcastle used to stop dance floors with "19". I did something similar a few years ago with Bertrand Russell's speech to the BBC in 1961.

    And built it into a dance tune. So I look forward to this speech-song hybrid you will create.

    Musically it's great and you did a nice job mixing in his famous voice and speech. Too bad the man himself is a disingenuous figure. Known as "America's Salesman" there wasn't a product he wouldn't hawk with his smooth velvety voice on his radio station. A conservative Seventh Day Adventist (death cult) who believed in the Death Penalty and the abolishment of welfare for the poor. He counted J Edgar Hoover, Billy Graham, and George Vandeman as friends. Controversy plagued him when it was suggested he deliberately injured the heel of his foot so he could escape service in the armed forces. Another time he tried to infiltrate a nuclear facility to broadcast to his public on the lack of security at such facilities. He was caught and arrested and narrowly escaped being punished for it( Thanks Hoover). In later years on his radio show, he would espouse conservative venom on his radio show while intermixing it with homespun tales of charm and the country life which appealed to his rural older white conservative brethren who listened and then smoothly selling them the latest junk product any sponsor would have him sell. Paul Harvey is Like (Ann Widdecombe (for her conservative and pointless views) merged with Stephen Fry (for his voice and advert power). A chilling hybrid indeed. At least the music was entertaining.

    Hahahahaaa your reply was highly entertaining too Cruce!
    I wasn't inviting him round for tea!
    Like I said I never heard of him before but when I came across him I listened to a few of his rants ... If I were the Devil .... The policeman etc and decided there and then that without a doubt he was a rigid conservative.
    Not my cup of tea at all.
    But I thought yes I can play with this and gave it a go. Still working on it to be honest.
    I might be mixing Ronald Reagan with Margaret Thatcher next and you've given me an idea of having dissenting voices thrown in .... Arthur Scargill and Tony Ben maybe .....Thanks for your time mate.

    Thank you Orlando I'm working on it as we speak. Working with lyrics is a big challenge for me. You wouldn't believe how many times I've tried it. I'm getting closer to getting it right I hope.

    What an idea! Firt time I heard Paul Harvey's Farmer speech was on a commercial for Dodge trucks. You know we live in an ass backwards world when Ceos are paid more that the ones who make the world go around like farmers. Never thought I'd hear Paul Harvey as an EDM singer, very cool! Funny how we stumble upon things now a days on you tube.

    Thanx for listening Phatz. I'm new to this man but as soon as heard him saying this I thought wow can I put it to some kind of music?
    If you've eaten to day thank a farmer.

    I used to love listening to Paul Harvey every day, it was like watching Johnny Carson every night on the Tonight Show. Interesting choice of music for a religious song. I usually think of softer angelic kind of sounds when I think of religious music. In some strange way the music sounded almost Middle Eastern to me but made with synths.

    Pretty cool musical idea. Makes me want to shoe a horse with a hunk of tire. I am also reminded to plant some peppers and radishes and lettuce because it's planting season in the south, thanks!

    What are you planning to do from this point?

    Thanks for listening.
    I'll probably just leave it on the digital shelf and pop back to it now and then I'm not sure what to do with it at the moment. Just a hobby for me .
    I stumbled across this guy by accident on youtube not sure how and I downloded him from there and chopped it up a bit and messed about with it. Well known in America apparently but not here in the u.k. ... certainly not in North Wales where I live! Thasnks for the visit.

Description : Another track in my recent series of Christian music. Done in the style of soft rock; it's a slow song and I gave it a much gentler touch than my normal tracks.
I used to play guitar and sing this song during worship portions of church services from time to time. As the Worship Leader, I tried to fit this one in about every six weeks or so because it is such a good, meaningful song to do. It always moved me to the core.
I am performing all except for drums which I wrote in MIDI.

Hello, I made this track when I was meditating one day on the mantra: ? ??? ?????. It was a great experience and in honor of the bliss i recieved while in deep meditation i made this track. Thank you!

Residing at the top of the mountain Kailash in Tibet sits in meditation the ascetic sage and yogi, Lord Shiva. He whom reached Nirvana at the highest bliss. As the sun enlightens the peak of the world, so can your mind enlighten the people of the world. When Shiva speaks, the siddha´s listen. When Sadhana is done, Shiva encourages everyone on their personal journey. whatever one´s goal may be. It can be done.
