Ok...so when ponkey posted THIS song and asked for a singer, I thought I'd try something different.

And, for me, this is different!
It's nice to break out of your usual genre and sing with a little more 'attitude,' so thank you, ponkey, for volunteering this fabulous instrumental up to my whims!


Instrumental: ponkey
Lyrics/vocals: Mystified

I like hearing these artists stepping out of their "comfort zones" and taking Ponk's lead into new areas.

I love your approach Myst. Great to hear you vocals in a very different way, very well done.

Yes, I agree, beautiful voice. But, with more than beauty, a bit of Joan Jett for attitude w/o being in your face. Nice collab.

Thanks, everyone, for dropping by to listen to this!And for the very kind words!

I only had one evening to work on this, so I'm sort of feeling like the mix is a bit rough. It's not a genre I'm used to tackling, and so if anyone out there has suggestions for a better incorporation of the vox into the instrumental track, please send me a message. I'd like to go back when I have more time and maybe remix this with the voice not as 'in front.'

Thanks again, all, for your comments!

I just KNEW Mysti could rock! Definitely hear the Joan Jett thang going on, but it works. Good on you for hopping into a genre you usually eschew. The mix is not quite there, but pretty cool to bang this out in an evening and post it for everyone. Thanks for sharing it.

I like this tune. Mysti is a great singer
My humble suggestions for this track (which may or may not help) are to try using compression, and limiting on the vocals to control the levels
and some type of very light modulation effect like chorus or stereo spreader to smooth and blend the vocals in better.

Aw wow..... I'm always Mesmerised by your voice Mysti...

Your'e like a siren... except, y'know, the mythical siren... not like a police car..

Such a voice you have.. ahh... soothing.

I didnt know this was a collab-able song, I might give this a try.. hmm..

Ponkey, you have made a lovely tune. Great lyrics too.

Really enjoy this thang. Keep an ear out for my take on this.. although I might never get it done..

Well done smiley

Mysti, I think this is great... if you would like to try remixing with the full GB file let me know and I will try to send it to you (adding a voice track to an mp3 always makes mixing hard!). My tuppen'orth: Keep the vocals sounding like they are on the verse, maybe add a little light chorus (or better still, backing vox) on the chorus? Even as it is at the moment though I love it!

jeez...is there anything this girl won't try...I don't care for this style of pop music much...but this is excellent. I agree that the vocall sounds "outside" the music...i am aware it's an overdub. This can be easily overcome by mixing it in the native garage band instead of on top of an mp3. It would be definately worth the time to do that cuz this is a very good piece of work!

Nice guitar ponkey, perfect for the song. All in all very enjoyable.

Gotta give you all the props for trying something like this. It is a testiment to you skills that you pull it off so well.

deep bows, fine collab

i can hear the pretenders too, and maybe a bit of the bangles for me. bring the music up and belt the song if you want to change it a bit. its probably just strange to be singing in a different way. i think is great!

Not surprised. This is a style of I have never heard from you, but so what else is new? Is there a genre you can't conquer? Let's see - how about hip hop? Could you try that next?

I find the lyrics fascinating.

p.s. I think you work best fast...

Very nice music, ponkey and Mysti, you've outdone yourself this time. I agree with Baboon's Pretenders comparison. I thought of Chrissie Hynde immediately, which is one of the biggest compliments I can think of.

Please, please do more of this type of music, you have such a nice warm tone in your voice and the vocal melody is terrific. You are such a multi-faceted artist and I'm thrilled to hear this side of you.

I agree with the suggestions for compression and I'd add to make sure the music and vocals have matching reverb and echo on the master, so they seem as though they're in the same space. I can't wait to hear the remix, although this is fairly mind-boggling as it is.
