This is what I thought the theme song for iCompositions should be. But apparently the contest is finished and the top 3 have been chosen. Congrats to the winners!

The vocals belong to my lovely and talented wife, Lisa (thank you honey!). Everything else is me + some drum loops. Because of some helpful comments regarding a muddy sound I have begun some new mixes. Stay tuned for updates!

Awesome theme song! Great guitars, bass, drums, everything. Your wife sounds like Chrissie Hynde or Pat Benetar or something -absolutely fantastic singing. It's wierd that 11 people have downloaded this and no-one's left a comment. Don't really get that. Anyway, fantastic song exactly right for this contest.

Thanks anDroid! Nice to hear someone as enthusiastic about this one as we are. I will for sure share your comparison with her. I think she has so much potential and so will be encouraging her to do more and more.

As far as the multiple d/l's with no comment, as long as its getting out there, I can't complain!

Thanks again for the comments.

I came in for a listen because you left a lovely comment and I figured I should return the courtesy and check out what you have posted. I am not disappointed I followed up the link in the least bit.
This is pretty darn cool. I'm going to try and check out more of your stuff as soon as I get some time. If you don't see me do it soon, plz don't get angry. I'm inundated with work at the moment.

Respect,
Art

I might be biased but you guys rock out! I never knew 'L' had such a super singing voice....it is almost as great as her laugh. Please let her know her favorite cousin is rooting for you both.
Luv,

Thanks all! Stun, Lisa got a big head from your "hubba hubba" comment. Yeah, kept it short and to the point for the theme contest. Funny that the final mix was exactly 1:00. Like I was trying for it.

You will hear more from me AND the wife, Sista Mac. Thanks for the comment!

Excellent entry. The lyrics and the tune are well structured, kind of Beatles-esque (is that a word?). If I wasn't in the contest, too, you'd have my vote!

I really like the sentiment. You know, a lot of these songs talk about a variety of aspects of this great place. Yours focuses on the writer, and that great moment when you realize that "Wow! I can do this myself!" It really rings true and resonates with me, and why I come here.

The production sounded a little muddy to me on my car speakers, and on both the car and in the headphones, I wanted Lisa's voice to come further out front. But, as far as the contest goes, I don't really care about the production. I'm listening for the heart, and man, you nailed it.

Good luck!

Man, I really need to get myself some studio reference speakers (or just get in the habit of burning a cd and testing it out on different systems). My teeny-tweeters/sub combination doesn't really emulate what a full-frequency system will do. And my mastering is the biggest thing I want to improve now, so I am very thankful for your comments.

Beatles-esque, huh? I'll take that. And you got the tune in your car? Thats cool too. Thanks for the support, paulhenrys!

Hey BlackLily is here! Woohoo! I've missed ya, Lily!

About the mix, last night I took this song, totally stripped it of any effects then opened it in Logic Express (the trial version) and am working with it in there. Doesn't fix the problem of hearing it from more of a standard, but it should clean things up a bunch. I will try a few different mixes, burn them and see which sounds best on other systems. Anyways, just nice to hear from you BL! I will pass the "ROCK" comment on to Lisa.

Also, thank you Sarah and ScottyDude! Your comments are very much appreciated.

Man, I loved this song back when the contest happened (I should have rated it then). Very cool! I thought that I was the king of the one minute miracles, but you are right there pounding me back into humble submission. If you ever wanna collaborate, please let me know.

I just want to belatedly pile on the plaudits. You have a great second musician in the house, pooey... and I absolutely agree with the Chrissie Hynde comparisons. Great voice.
