Description : EDIT: I took into consideration some advice I got on the track - and realised I HATED the vocals I did on this! So, spent an afternoon fixing it up a bit... adding some additional harmonies, and now feel much happier about the end result. Jeeeez... that first draft was false! hehehe
Thanks for the suggestion DFury :)

(song for O'Shea)
A day... condensed into a song. Dublin, as I remember it. Thanks to DJ4Real for the beautiful "Bells" loop. Also used in this track - harp, piano (layered), tremolo strings and an Indian flute. (albeit briefly)

saw you standing there
in a flurry of red roses
at the top of Grafton street
i flew up
i flew up
i flew high o'er St. Stephen's green

and this is where I am
everytime I see your name
taking me back
to the bus stop outside the museum
where the bones of a warrior
lies in rest
forever and ever passing the test of time
test of time

everytime i look into his eyes
i wished he were you
i wished he were you

and i was just a child
i didn't know what love was
you stood the test of time
i didn't know what love was
everytime i look into his eyes
i fly up
i fly up
o'er St. Stephen's Green
the Liffey
Grafton street

    You've got such a great ear. To layer things like this, the melody, harmonies and textures and have things float forward and free at just the right moment...yeah, young lady - you just keep getting better and better.

    Great choices for sounds throughout. All that's left is my applause (can you hear it way down there?). Well done!

    Delicate and beautiful intro... Great vocals and effect usage, I'm loving the fact you are using your voice as an instrument with many tracks devoted to is gorgeous tones. Your production and arrangement on this is also spell binding..

    Cheers, Slap...

    Wow, I'm not sure how I missed your work.

    But I'm glad I found it. Definitely had to add this one to the favorites. You have mad skills, and a flawless voice.

    Beautiful work.

    This is amazing. Bits remind me of Imogen Heap and in other spots I get a Sigur Ros / Jonsi feel. Are you going to put an a capella track out of this? I'd love to write something to go along with it.

    Nice job minette I swear you just keep getting better and better, this is a great production throughout. You voice sounds excellent, and in my opinion has a nice pro sound to it. The lyrics really good as well. Keep it up.

    I could imagine this being in the same realm as Dido or adult contemporary stuff I hear at an office or something! I love it, Looperman always has some surprises, you are very talented Minette!

    i'd like to think i sound a bit less "whiney" than Dido - but really appreciate the comparison.

    thanks so much for listening - come back soon and check out some more of my tracks!

    Great muted intro and I really like the moment the beat kicks in. Nice vocalism and lyricism, crisp layers, nice pace, overall great production. Only thing the beat and melody faded out a bit abruptly at 2:30, could be another way to transition (maybe just chop it off at 2:27?) but this is being picky, keep this up & happy new year - DF

    Thanks for the advice - basically redid all the vocals and changed the cut off to a double layer beat at around 2:30 :)

Description : Here's a song I created for you guys! Felt a spark of creativity last night and stayed up a bit to make this into a basic song. I provided the loops for the song if you'd like to restructure it! Real acoustic, percussion, claps and voices. No vocals but already structured for singing. Feel free to download and add vocals for non-commercial use :) Enjoy!

Description : Was trying out my new Fender electric guitar that was so generously given to me as a Christmas present from my oldest brother, and instantly fell in love with the tone! So much so that it inspired an entire night's worth of music. Instruments at work: Drums, Bass Guitar, Electric Guitar (x3), Acoustic Guitar, Pad, Tambourine. The bass is real this time (played by yours truly, pardon my amateur bass skills)!I hope you enjoy!

Description : Sometimes i forget that i'm not a pro-musician, not involved in some market logic. Sometimes i forget that my job is foundry worker. But i never forget that i got a soul,i am human. As human, i need to bring out my feelings, and that is easier for me when I make music. Something in lyrics and Baby's performance touched me deeply. Just turn your lighter on, wave it and enjoy.

Description : messed around on my piano, came up with a good idea, and put it in fl studio. I think it turned out pretty great. It would be awsome to get some vocals to this. if you do, feel free to change up the title or whatever. tempo is at 105 if ya need to know. review it and enjoy.

Description : This was my entry into a remix contest by Anna Yvette for her song "Stars and Moon." I don't enter a lot of remix contests and this song will give you an idea why, hahaha. A huge thanks to Anna Yvette for allowing people like me to really mess up her work. This one was a bit of a challenge due to the vocals already being mixed. Unfortunately, downloads are restricted on this one per her request. Thanks for listening.

Description : This one has been sitting on my computer for a bit now but didn't really like it. My friends say it can use some vocals and I think that is what this one needs. If there is anyone who wants to put some vocals on this, send me an email at .magic41151@yahoo.com. or post below. Thanks for tuning in and have a great day!

Description : LYRICS - you pick up the pieces / moving along now / you don't know him anymore / he broke your heart a thousand times / his words cut you like a knife / take a deep breath now / look what you're doing / you don't even recognize / that he was not the one you needed / not the one you needed / bleeding out now with all your emotions / all your sorrows on the floor / you can't take it anymore ///// look at you on the floor / peace is hard to find in war / the memories are like a sore / so you try your best to slam the door / but I wanna' be in your life / wanna' heal all your strife / I am more than you have ever wanted / just give me a chance / just give me a chance / give me a chance.
Loops used: Xyilent - (https://www.looperman.com/loops/detail/85000/xyilent-andromeda-melody-by-xyilent-free-82bpm-hip-hop-piano-loop) and KaloKidd (https://www.looperman.com/loops/detail/88818/hard-hip-hop-drum-no-808-by-kalokidd-free-82bpm-hip-hop-drum-loop) I think I fixed the EQing issues and pulled back some sibilance as well as increased the overall volume. Opinions welcome :) Everything done by yours truly except for the two loops :3
