Ponkey wrote some excellent music and requested some lyrics for it. The title kept nagging at me to write some...so I did. I'm still blindly working my way around the new microphone, mixing and more so make any suggestions. Or take my lyrics and sing them yourself! smiley

Ponkey's original instrumental is here

And now there is a new version courtesy of Ed! Check it out here! He remixed a bit, layered in more bass and some vox and guitar bits and really rounded it out, IMHO. Thanks Ed!

Go for it, Sven! I'm still learning and would love to hear other people's versions if they like the words!

I put a link to Ponkey's original instrumental and a link to the soundbites I used in the song information above. There are 4 clips; I had to use the gain to clean some noise from a couple of them and I added a bit of reverb to each.

Thanks for the comments!

the track sounds cool - the singing is also quite alright and when I say quite I mean not really bedded, mixed with the music ... your voice sounds good and i could really see it work with some dub-music - ever tried?

Nice work! LOVED the line, "...any way you spin it, he's still photogenic.." Got to admire the unexpected rhyme. The sound clips are a nice touch. Cool vocal performance. John Dee

Wow!

I heard lilichi's take on this. Didn't realize that you had written the lyrics. They are great! Very dark and with a big twist. I didn't see that ending coming at all, but upon listening again it made total sense — kind of like an M. Night Shamylan thing!

I like your voice, but agree with OrangeAudio. I think it could be improved by a slightly different production approach.

Overall, Great song!

Thanks for all the new comments!

Yep, I'm still learning production techniques and everything. Sometimes things work out in a happy accident for me, and sometimes I toy with gain and compression and various settings and never feel I'm there yet. A remix may be on its way.

I posted this a little before lili posted hers. We both ended up going a similar direction, even down to men worried about their hair. smiley Hers is a cool story of a man dejected by family life. Mine is a more impressionistic take on an actor realizing no one is remembering his work, that maybe it never mattered and he'll be dead forever. (Three different viewpoints in my short bit.. Whew... I'm a nutter trying to pull that off. smiley )

Room for everyone! smiley

I don't know how much reworking this needs - maybe none! Quirky tune. Good message to pay attention to the things that really matter while there's still time.
