Description
A throwback to the kind of dark electronic music of the 80s. Still a work somewhat in progress. Would appreciate any constructive ideas.

Lyrics
Waiting in vain
hoping you might come around again
Hard to explain
all those hard times you have caused for me and then
I am a fool
Every time you smile I am drawn back in again

Why do you torture me
What have I done

It’s the wages of sin
Never to have you close again
It’s the wages of sin
I’ll pay the price
I’ll pay the price

Visions of you haunt me daily
I wish they would go away
Voices inside my head say I still love you
but we both know the truth
I am a fool every time you smile
I come running back to you
Why don’t you let me go. What have I done?

It’s the wages of sin
Never to have you close again
It’s the wages of sin
I’ll pay the price
I’ll pay the price

Nice Sentiment
Like this. Good start to a work in progress - takes me
back (Showing age).
My only tips would be to reign in on reverb. Also to create
more light and shade - there are plenty of textures here -
it would be good to bring different ones to the fore at
different times - pulling back - building up etc.
Maybe also a distinct bridge between verse and chorus,
possibly an extra riff?
Well worth working on as its a good piece with potential.

Nice Sentiment
Thanks for the comments Andy. Getting a good mix and balance is one of my
weak spots. That and the fact that I really like reverb more than your average
bear. Thanks for listening.

Synths
are cool here. Vocals were too loud, I thought. Nice overall Human League kind of sound. --D

Synths
Appreciate you taking time to listen and comment. Had a hard time balancing
the vocals on this one. I usually bury them too deep in the mix. Maybe I'll hit
a better balance on the next mix. Human League is awesome, esp. their
earlier stuff.

Love the 80s synths
This is a great track for lovers of 1980s synth bands (i. e.
Styx).

Also reminds me a bit of Kraftwerk.

Good work -- keep those tracks coming.

And thanks for your kind words on my "Bach Jazz" post.

Great
I love the synthezeier work you have going here, a bit
YAZOO, nice melodies and productions. The vocals are a
little unsynched and almost too sharp. I here what you're
saying re: cheap-ass mic - I used to have one, got a new
one, much better!!! I can recommend looking into that, it
makes such a huge difference. This is a very good song
however.

Great
Thanks, M, I really appreciate the comments and thanks for taking the time to
listen. I really like your tunes. I hope in a few months to have a decent mic.
Have gotten about a thousand different recommendations for what kind to
get.

I like the synth!
Thanks, helloreb. I'm totally addicted to the music of the 80s. Glad you liked it.
Thanks for listening and commenting.

Some people are like big children, harming others without even seeing it. Staying angry with these fools is like being mad at fire because it burns.

HEY!
How did I miss this? The lyrics are so on par with
something from the 80's synth era. Addicted to the 80's,
eh? That makes 2 of us! The gears in my head are starting
to turn. I'm thinking maybe a colab may be in the 2 of our
futures!!! I really dug this Mr. jgurner!
jgurner said 4414 days ago (August 22nd, 2005)
HEY!
Awesome! I would love to collab. There seems to be quite a few of us on MJ who
are enamored with the 80s. I'll have my people e-mail your people, or you have
your people e-mail my people when we're ready to unleash the 80s on the world
again. Thanks for taking the time to give this a listen.
