The Song!

Okay everyone...
It's about time I wrote my World Number 1 Top Of The Charts song!
It'll be great!
The young kids of this generation will love it!
I've got some software (Cubasis) and a head full of ideas... And other stuff as well
This will be an ongoing thing (i.e. I'll do a bit here, a bit there, when time permits.)
Part experiment, part music.
So what's next?
Sex, drugs and rock - Actually, I just need some guidance.
No, not that sort of guidance! Hands off!
I... (this is so hard for me to say)... I...
I need your help.
Soooooo...
What type of song should it be?
What instruments do you want to hear?
What should it be called?
Etc etc...
Please keep in mind that I've only got Cubasis!
I can't promise that everything will be addressed
But I can promise you this...
Whatever I do write I'll post it here... Free of charge!
For your listening pleasure

Any ideas anyone?

Re: The Song!

World Number1Top Of The Charts Song...being myself such a music lover,it does sound like a interesting thing but I have to say I'm not sure about what you want with this...To ask people which song is their ultimate favourite so you could find out which song/band is the most popular from all the world? If yes,I'm willing to give you a list with my all-time favourite songs..althoug I should warn you it will be a veryy long list .

All the best
Lissa

Just send lots of money! Then I'll truly, one hundred percent, no doubt about it, be happy
By the way, did you know we now accept PayPal?

Wwwwweeeeelllll, that's not exactly what I had in mind. But, I'm sure there's gotta be a thread about "favourite songs" around here somewhere? I'll check it out for you. And if one doesn't exist, I'll start one

Okay, here's what I was thinking when I posted that last post...

I have this desire to write (i.e. compose) a song and put it on the Internet.
Because I haven't done this before, I need some help.
In addition, the people here on this forum give a lot to others, so I thought it'd be a good way to give something back to them.
So, to put it another way...
I thought it'd be nice if some of the folk on this forum could contribute to this song.
Therefore, they could say "Hey listen to this song I helped to create."

Here's a possible scenario (to help explain this whole concept)...

Person 1 - "I like piano, can a piano be in this song?"

Me - "Yes it can, I'll get to it as soon as possible."

Person 2 - "I want it to sound like a techno song."

Person 3 - "I would like a country and western song."

Person 4 - "I want to have a techno song too."

Me - "Okay, it's going to be a techno song with a piano tune in it."

Person 1 - "When do we get to hear it?"

Me - "I'll post the first version of the song soon, maybe next week, and then we can discuss any changes that need to be made."

Person 1 - "Thanks Atruism. You're the greatest person alive on this planet!"

BTW - Feel free to contribute!!!

Re: The Song!

I get to be person number 1

How about a heavy brass section. Sort of like you hear in the works of The Specials. Kinda like Tiajuana Brass.

Okay, person number 2, you're next....

Re: The Song!

So I'm person number2,and I want a piano and a bongo and a guitar and a flute...

Joking .

I don't know how would it sound with the brass section,but could the song have synthesizers(my Oxford dictionary says this is the right word,I hope so!)in it?Like OMD or Kraftwerk's songs,with that electronical feeling,I really like the way it sounds.

Re: The Song!

Ooh, how about some percussion? Drums, (drumsets and/or marching percussion), cymbals, and possibly a marimba, xylophone, or vibraphone, perhaps?

All clear for Person Number 4!

If I am following this thread correctly, I should be saying this about now, right?

Re: The Song!

The song has to have a title so you got any ideas, or would 1, 2, 3, and 4 throw things into the ring....

Re: The Song!

Hello again...

To cut a long story short…
I've found a web site to host the song.
I've uploaded a trial song (i.e. a rough/basic song) to see how things work.
If you want to check out the (free) song you need to sign up.
And the link for the web site is.…………. here

While I was checking out the web site I came across this...

"SaFe cRacKeRZ (Electronica: Drum n Bass)
We are three potheads from Puerto Rico that loves music (electronic music). And we are DJ'S"


There certainly are some "interesting" characters at soundclick.com

Lissa...

Upbeat feeling to the song...Okay, that's 2 votes (mine included.)
Names in the lyrics... It's a great suggestion. Any examples on offer?
And a question...

If we work out the lyrics, based on the names so far, what happens if we get more members to this thread...How do we accommodate them?

How about we set a cut off date (for members to join this thread and thus potentially be included in the lyrics) and then we'll work it out then (i.e. what the actual lyrics will be.) Does that sound good?

wintersprite1...

If it's not too much trouble, and I'm sure it won't be, can you continue saying it throughout this entire thread?

Flea...

Here's my example for a song title... "Jeffrey and Steven's Weekend Adventure!"
If you're wondering what that means, just check out my signature
Seriously though, anyone can throw their ideas in the ring and we'll take it from there.

Keep those brain cells active and post here if you feel like it !!!

I'll update in a week's time.

Oh, and the "Favourite Songs" thread is now up and running (thanks Arian!).

It's……………………. here

< Edit > If you want to listen to the trial song, I recommend that you download the mp3 version (i.e. less bandwith/better quality.) Bye!

I guess the thread was due one of these again.

Re: The Song!

This week's update (Trial 2), including…

* Samandra81’s vibraphone (it's after the first lot of "Choir/Aaaah" sounds.)
* Lissa’s "Kraftwerk" sound/beat (at the end of the song.) Kind of
* And the (hopefully) uplifting feeling to it.

And… Yes, okay I admit it, I didn’t get the cowbell joke. But my rock solid alibi is that I’ve never watched Saturday Night Live in my life. But I do know who Will Ferrell is. So please remember, that I am hip. I am cool. And, ummm, I am totally with it, when it comes to video games (not WOW but you know… Space Invaders, Frogger… That kind of stuff.)

More next week... E.g. Maybe that infamous guitar sound and more (fingers crossed!)

And yes, I’ve got a lot of info (your comments/recommendations) to catch up on!

Like this kind of stuff.

Thanks once again
