Lyrics
[ vanity ]

time has come to choose / between one or the other / time has come to close the deal on the dance floor scene / he walks with pride & vanity / he walks in despair / time to choose a lady / become one of a pair / the stroboscope is beautiful / it's flashing it's lights / vanity people / in vanity dreams / are vanity kings and vanity queens / face to face / and around and around / eye to eye / a glimpse of something sweet / his hands on her body / her hands on his / they're proud to be / a king and a queen

cool
love this tune. reminds of early New Order. I like the
keyboard solo... did you program that or play it live?
The fast rhythm guitar works really well here

Thanks for your comment! The synth and most of it except the drums is
done live. I mean, if you can call it "live" sitting in the studio! :)

good...work the mix, though.
Nice song...vocals a bit on the loud side, though...drown out the guitars and makes the left panning effect less effective.

You're right, all good points, thanks! The song is for sure to high on the
beginning of the verse, while I think on the refrain for example the volume
works good... I should probably re-do the song parts - just wanted to put it
out here to get some feedback! :)

always love your lyrics
They're like little glimpses into your life that we can all relate to. Don't know if this is a moment from reality or imagination, but I think we've all been there. That's what makes music great (for me anyway) when it gives you a moment of connection. A moment of feeling like someone else knows you. The art speaks volumes as well.
Nicely done!

always love your lyrics
Thank you very much! My songs and their lyrics...well, they are like
paintings, based upon a mood and a feeling...in fact, most of my songs could
very well be painted instead of the creation of a song. Or they could be a
short movie. I don't really understand where they are coming from but I am
glad they do come, and also very happy that they find others like yourself. I
fully understand that I could put in more time into the production of them,
but for now I am putting that on the shelves for the expression itself. I work
very fast, and when done I am already living in a new project. No past, no
future; but presence. I could say a lot about the lyrics in this particular song,
but like they say: "Beuty is in the eye of the beholder..."

LOVE IT!!!
Same here, probably why I tend to lean this way, not attentionally of course...
Personally I feel that the times we live in, and the availability for anyone to be
able to create music, somewhat opens up a lot of different doors. It's okay to
sound whatever you want to sound like - tomorrow I'm into Tango!

Another Old Fart

Solid yet treble
Love the consistency of texture and great british 80s
sound. Well balanced and strong composition and lyrics.
The whole thing is a little metallic, like a over-compressed
mp3 conversion, which actually made it seem even more
like an actual relic from early 80s radio. But I wonder if
you culd warm it up by compressing it less or using a high
mp3 conversion (do you use 192 kbps?) Really solid
track.

Solid yet treble
I agree, the final mix of this song has to be re-done, as well as the voice
parts. I will work on this - and of course; I still have a lot to learn! :)

Bela Lugosi's not dead!
Wow, I was just listening to some old Bauhaus, and
your song could fit right in on one of their albums.

Good work
