Description
This is a bit of a change for me style-wise. I had a lot of fun with my new Korg! I really like how it turned out, but I need some feedback.

Lyrics
Clouds creep like little children,
Glide home, glide home to their mother
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Three walls and one window,
Sitting here really makes my mind go
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Echoes of a life that lives inside my head
Reflections of the words you said,
That pink dress you wore,
The time we slept upon the naked floor,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
You know I want to love you,
Glide home, glide home to me, safely,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
I hear pianos made of clay
The notes are muted and astray,
Like your footsteps when you’re tired.
I see the trees are making love,
And it’s you I’m think of,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Clouds get big and they get lonely,
Rain knocks, rain knocks on my window
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Echoes of a life that lives inside my head,
Reflections of the words you said,
That pink dress you wore,
The time we slept upon the naked floor.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
You know I want to love you,
Glide home, glide home to me, safely,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
I hear pianos made of clay
The notes are muted and astray,
Like your footsteps when you’re tired.
I see the trees are making love,
And it’s you I’m think of,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Interesting
A good song. I found the bass a little overpowering. It seemed to muddle with the percussion. Beyond that the song is interesting, different but good!

Good point
I did turn up the bass intentionally, but you make a good point. I think it does sound a little muddy sometimes.

cool
Very interesting neo-psychedelic song. great vocals, nice melody.
I'm always hesitant to throw out criticisms for stuff this individualistic, but since you asked for feedback I would have liked to hear a bit more in the way of drums, ie. rock a little bit more. However, it pretty much stands up on its own I'd say! Great post!

Beatle-esque
This reminds me of a latter Beatles sound, or maybe Paul McCartney immediately post-breakup, but with modern instrumentation. Very quirky cool. I like.

Thanks guys
And that's exactly what I was going for...Beatles with more modern percussion and instruments.

Splendid
I think this is wonderful. Your work remindes me of the Kinks. Suggestion: boost the backing vocals and add a rotovibe fx. It would swirl. A tighter limiter might help with the pops.

OK - I'm confused
you've been here since 2004? And you have a really big gap in posting. What happened in the intervening years? Did you go off and have a major career - and then you missed us? I'll just have to keep listening back to find clues. This track is wonderful - psychedelic and witty - charming and filling. Love the Korg.

Mystery solved
Thank you for the comments! I am going to solve the mystery for you. I joined in 2004 and mostly posted a bunch of crappy songs that somehow got deleted by the system over the years. I kind of stopped recording my music around 2006 when I was in grad school, though I wrote a few songs druing the time. When I recently started making tracks with grageband again I thought I'd post them here, and, lo and behold, my account was still here!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Crazy stuff happening here.

That nostalgic vocal sound combined with the "piff piff" electro drum is very interesting to me. I also have to point out that I am impressed by that simple piano line.

Some of the electronics get out of hand towards the end, but that's me, the pot calling the kettle black.

Enjoyed.

awesome
this is perfect as is, with the exception of the bass. that has been covered tho, and is not a deal breaker. really into the instrument choices you made here. another excellent tune.
