Description
I kinda messed up something in my song selection here on MJ - so.. that's why this is re-uploaded :)

Unrequited Love is a contemporary pop/dance/electro song with strong focus on a catchy synth arrangement. Guitars was recorded by danish Søren Jacobsen. Other than that we did everything ourselves besides mastering.
The song was released June 10th 2011 with free download on our website :)

Song was chosen as HitPick of the week on Chartbase.dk which is denmarks biggest independent chartsite and the song was on this hitlist for 16 weeks. 10 of these weeks in the top 5, peaking at number 2. It was number 11 on the year-end-list too. Finally it won an award "Danish CB Taste Hit Of The Year 2011" :)
A lot of local radio stations played it and still do.. but we never had luck getting it in to the danish national radio station, like some of our other work.

Lyrics
I, I'm living life on my own
Why, oh why
When he's everywhere that I go
So what now
I figure out what to say
But my oh my
Everytime I try
I get numb inside again
And everytime, it's the same

Oh my God did I die
I can feel my body's trying hard to breathe
When he's leaning in over me
I, I'm feeling like a teen again
I never felt so alive
But I see him turn and walk the other way
And it's burning inside of me
Why, I didn't try to make him stay
Oh my God did I die

I, I'm trying hard to get by
My oh my
And I lie awake in the night
But why, oh why
And I see your face everywhere
So what now
Don't know what to do
To get over you, I pray
But you’re here again, everyday

Oh my God did I die
I can feel my body's trying hard to breathe
When he's leaning in over me
I, I suffocate in make-believe
I can't break out of this lie
I see him turn and walk the other way
And it's burning inside of me
Why, I couldn't make him stay
Oh my God did I die

instrumental

Did I die
Everytime I try
I feel warm inside, again
Don't know what to do
How to get over you, and I pray
Every night and day

Oh did I die
I can feel my body's trying hard to breathe
When he's leaning in over me
I, I'm feeling like a teen again
I never felt so alive
But I see him turn and walk the other way
It's burning inside of me
Why, I didn't try to make him stay

Oh my God did I die
Everytime I try
I get numb inside, again
Don't know what to do
How to get over you, and I pray
Every night and day
Inside of me, why
Why, he didn’t stay
Oh my God did I die

This has pop hit written all over it. Pity it wasn't picked up by the Danish national radio station... Their loss. Pro quality song writing, arrangement and production. Congratulations, Heidi and Michael. Thanks for sharing it with us. Regards, Peter.

Thank you Peter - apperently everyone else than the bigger radios, music industry people and so on feels this is a hit song.. we'll keep trying with it.. right now we're working on an even more pop version where we're replceing the synth part with guitars - excited to hear the outcome :) Our national radio rejected it cause they felt it had too much synth for their audience, but not cause they didn't liked it, so there's still hope for it ha ha :)))
Thanks for your kind feedback, much appreciated! Love Heidi

This is a great sounding song. The vocals are awesome, and so are the synths.

I'm missing something. Is the "oh my god" part kind of a chorus? To me there is not enough contrast between that and the verses, and so it's like the whole song goes on on one intensity level. There is nothing that jumps out. Not to say that the song is boring, but there seem to be as many catchy lines in the verse as in the chorus.

Another thing: for all their arpeggiating and gating the synths are a bit static. Something that resembles a melody line or hook would probably improve the marketability of this.

That said, really cool stuff. I couldn't do it this way.

Thanks for your thoughts - I'm not sure I understand completely what you're saying :) But I sense that you need more contrast from verses to chorus. What we did was to start off the verse part in minor followed by the bridge and chorus in major, Guitars are added in the chorus to make it fuller and more synth stuff. Arpeggio is meant to make the sound fuller in general and in my opinion, the synth does lots of melody hooks ;) Sometimes these kind of songs don't need much variations in the arrangement. But thanks anyway for your thoughts. Love Heidi
