Description
Still trying to find some uncommon sounds of voice and instruments...
Looking to surprise.

This one's about the one that got away. A long time ago...

Yes, the cover is pencil. I made it from a scene in a Fellini film.

Lyrics
Tell me you still love me
Before you sit down and cry
Come to me and hold me
And wipe that tear from your eye

Sentimental minds
Sentimental dreams


I know you've got to go
But we'll meet again some day
And please lend me a smile
Before you walk away


Sentimental minds
Sentimental dreams

Sentimental minds
Sentimental dreams

Tell me you still love me
Before you sit down and cry
Come to me and hold me
And wipe that tear from your eye

Sentimental minds
Sentimental dreams

Overpowering
Thanks! Well i suppose the cheeky lyrics scare listeners away. I agree about the vocals. I tried laying a compressor on it but that killed the rest. Guess i'll have to play around with the controls a bit more. Thanks for your comment!
Very much appreciated.

you were going for...
...uncommon sounds of voice and instruments, and i think you accomplished that! particularly with the vocals. i agree with egobandit on the level of the vocals, i think a more balanced mix will give you a great song here. it is very creative, i liked it.

Thanks!
Thanks for Your very kind comments. I'm not very productive, since my time's usually short between work, family and beer with my friends. So it's really great to have You guys giving me feedback and creative tips.
Thaks again!

Thanks!
I've usually had problems with the vocals being too low. I seem to do a lot of screaming :-) so i have to turn down the input not to peak. This makes the things between a bit low (not mastered the microphone techniques yet). But this is kind of a new way of doing it for me so the recording is quite high. Too high i realize. I'll do a remix and see if it sounds better.
Thanks again for your comment, it's very much appreciated.

Agree...
about the comments on the voice. But absolutely mind-blowing. Ouaf ! So powerful and original. Waiting for a repost (if any) to download it.

Blushing
"mind-blowing... powerful... original..." wow, I'm blushing. I find my biggest problem is that I work too much with the songs. I add too many unstruments and too much sound. A few people have suggested that I should use sound more sparingly. Well i have tried it on this one, I'm pretty happy with it myself, but a can of course hear all the mistakes and off-notes ;-)
Thanks very much for your input.

.. this is great ..

wow - how low can you go? Quite growling and dark, those
vocals- I wouldn't come near ya! scares the crépe out of me ;o) - only time I've heard anything like that in pop tunes is like Sister of Mercy or Fields of the Nephilm - the backing is very nice and smooth, rolls along ...

Good job - sorry I took so long to stop by.
