Description
I haven't had much of a chance to work on music lately. However, I fit in a little time last night after homework when I should have been sleeping and a little more today. I ended up making a piano cover of "Northern Light" by Basshunter. Basshunter has been an inspiration to a lot of my music, and he's one of my favorite artists. I've been listening to him lately while doing homework, and I came up with the idea of making a piano live-ish cover version. Most of the time I go from original version (which is typically not dance music) to a dance styled version. However, this time I took the opposite approach, thinking it'd be a nice challenge for my piano composition skills. I think it turned out decently for a quick song. Hope you goes enjoy it! I've provided the original song below for any comparison, for those that are interested.

Lyrics
When I'm gone
Like the northern light
I'll shine down on you

I'll keep my magic sparkle
Brighter and higher
For you

I can see sadness in your eyes
Remember our love will never die
To watch your future from afar
Will surely leave me scarred

But I have to face my demons
I have to realize
That I can't be with you anymore
But it's alright

Yeah it's alright
Yeah it's alright
You just gotta be strong

'Cause when I'm gone
Like the northern light
I'll shine down on you

I'll keep my magic sparkle
Brighter and higher
For you

When I'm gone
Like the northern light
I'll shine down on you

I'll keep my magic sparkle
Brighter and higher
For you

(Instrumental)

I know it might seem unfair
But tomorrow's not ours to share
But let me guide you when you're lost
"I'm so much more than shadow and dust

But I have to face my demons
I have to realize
That I cannot be with you anymore
But it's alright

Yeah it's alright
Yeah it's alright
You just gotta be strong

Whoah ohh ohh ohhhh
Whoah ohh ohh ohhhh

When I'm gone
Like the northern light
I'll shine down on you

I will keep my magic sparkle
Brighter and higher
For you

Northern Light
Nice lilting tune. I like the tone to your voice - light, but with a breathiness that gives it character, and covering a good range. Clean playing. Much enjoyed!

Northern Light
I don't know the original version but I will have a listen after this.
Very nicely performed... love your vocals and there's just the right touch of verb to make it feel like I am sitting in a large theatre listening to you perform. My only suggestion would be to push your vocals ... build the intensity and then drop them down to that lovely soft quality ... more dynamic ... like a piano when you play soft and then hit the keys harder and then softer. This adds excitement and feeling to a song ... more passion.
This is a suggestion otherwise it really is quite beautiful.

Re: Northern Light
As for the reverb for concert listening style, that was exactly what I was going for. Glad you could hear it! Yeah, I wish a put a little more into the vocals. I wanted to finish something though since I hadn't in a while, and I was limited in time for doing so. Thank you for the feedback though, and thanks for listening!

But it's good to see that you occasionally still find time for music. Your vocals are lovely as always.

Sometimes they do. I don't know. I feel there's pros and cons to quickly made songs and ones with more time and effort. Thank you for the complement though and for listening as well!

Nice break
Whether done laboriously and quickly .. as a recreational activity .. almost nothing beats the satisfaction that comes from making music.

Nice break from homework!

Nice
Well done. Simple and direct. I am glad you could find some time for your music. Now make a cover of Nick Drake's Northern Sky to stay in the northern theme.
