Lonely (collab w/ myself as a dude)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a song I've been working on in the last week and a half for fun. It's not connected to any of my older stuff, and I just made it for fun. Yes, I used an autotune thing for it, but it was a one time thing for fun, so pleaseeee don't gimme any lip about that. It's a song about feeling lonely in life and how sometimes it seems impossible to find love.

PS It's hard to type lyrics for a song when you have layered parts...

Lyrics
C'mon boy
You wanna be my toy
Tonight
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Cos darkness
Never finds happiness
In sight
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

So come here
Don't wanna another year
Lonely
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Cos I learned
What should never be yearned
Finally
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

I don't need
Any hero to hold
Fairy tales don't exist
I'm far to old

Cos love is never found in life
It takes you like a sharp dull knife
Your soul is ripped out like a plight
Your hopes and dreams just lose the fight

(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)

Cos my vice
Comes at a costly price
Tonight
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

So I must
Find no love only lust
In sight
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Now you see
Why I don't wanna be
Lonely
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Raise me high
So I can say goodbye
Finally
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)

I don't need
Any hero to hold
Fairy tales don't exist
I'm far to old

Cos love is never found in life
It takes you like a sharp dull knife
Your soul is ripped out like a plight
Your hopes and dreams just lose the fight

(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)

I see that you're lonely
(I am so lonely)
But you're not the only
(I am so lonely)
One in this world
(I am so lonely)
Who feels this way girl
(I am so lonely)

So don't fall to dope
Never lose your hope
(I am so lonely)
(C'mon boy)
Always find the light
Even when it's dark as night
(I am so lonely)
(You wanna be my toy)
What happened to your fun
You're so damn young
(I am so lonely)
(Tonight)
Your eyes are so bright
Where'd you lose that life
(I am so lonely)

You think you're old
Your heart so cold
(I am so lonely)
(Cos darkness)
(I don't need)
You lost your mind
To a love you can't find
(I am so lonely)
(Never finds happiness)
(Any hero to hold)
But persevere
For another year
(I am so lonely)
(In sight)
(Fairy tales don't exist)
It takes some time
To get it right
(I am so lonely)
(I'm far too old)

Find happiness
Never settle for less
(I am so lonely)
(So come here)
(I don't need)
A girl like you
Deserves something true
(I am so lonely)
(Don't wanna another year lonely)
(Any hero to hold)
So don't give up
You can never let up
(I am so lonely)
(Lonely)
(Fairy tales don't exist)
Just give it some time
To get it right
(I am so lonely)
(I'm far too old)

I don't need
(I am so lonely)
(Cos I've learned)
Any hero to hold
(I am so lonely)
(What should never be yearned)
Fair tales don't exist
(I am so lonely)
(Finally)
I'm far too old
(I am so lonely)

Cos love is never found in life
(I see that you're lonely)
(But you're not the only)
It takes you like a sharp dull knife
(One in this world)
(Who feels this way girl)
Your soul is ripped out like a plight
(I see that you're lonely)
(But you're not the only)
Your hopes and dreams just lose the fight
(One in this world)
(Who feels this way girl)
Cos love is never found in life
(I see that you're lonely)
(I see that you're lonely)
It takes you like a sharp dull knife
(I see that you're lonely)
(I see that you're lonely)
Your soul is ripped out like a plight
(I see that you're lonely)
(I see that you're lonely)
Your hopes and dreams just lose the fight
(I see that you're lonely)
(I see that you're lonely)
(I see that you're lonely)

(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)
(I am so lonely)

Fun weirdness
I really like the music idea here, and your vocal effects here are actually really cool. The high tremolo on the instruments and your vox are a little much *all the time*, but if you did that warble only on the chorus, say, it would be better I think. I think the "guy" voice turned out well... are you intentionally adding a British accent, sounds like you have one?

Fun stuff here, thank you for sharing this experiment, there's a lot of good ideas in this, quite listenable.

Re: Fun Weirdness
This overall was very experimental for me. There was one other experimental mix for me but I never uploaded it cuz I never finished it. This was my first attempt rapping as a guy, so I have to agree and say it wasn't all that bad. And nope, no accent, so I don't know? Thanks for listening!

This is very well done. I like the heavy groove. I like the vocal melody. And the little tremolo vocal effects accent the verse phrases nicely. The synth that slides down in pitch toward the 2nd verse is a cool effect. Is there distortion on the vocals because you want that effect? The male voice is pretty clean in comparison. The block chords during that male vocal section are very effective. Good post and welcome back.

Re: Lonely
Thank you! And, yes, I added the distortion because I wanted it there. It was to add to the experimental feel of it. I guess you could say I was avoiding any organicness, expect for a little bit of piano towards the end. Thanks for your feedback!

Alas
I broke my really good headphones yesterday so am listening through my crummier ones and probably loosing something in the treble here, but I think you did a very nice job on this! I don't give out major feedback (music should be enjoyed more than autopsied) but I wonder how this would play at just a faster tempo? It's a nice song but at it's current length, I feel a faster tempo would make it even more pleasurable.

Re: Alas
Oooh, I hate it when my good headphones die! You have my sympathy! Anywayz, thank you for your feedback! I'll try listening to it at a faster tempo later, but I have work shortly. I'll let you know how it sounds later! Thanks!

lots of great ideas in this tune, from cool effects to solid and interesting lyrics, I must admit that a slightly faster tempo would not hurt this piece, I enjoyed my listen..

Re: Very cool
Thanks! I just started with a four-note bassline I made, then made corresponding chords to play adjacently, and made melodies off of that. Because it was the same four chords and I orignally wrote it through piano, it made it easy to layer stuff in the end. The rest was just making my own effects and percussion. Thanks for listening!

This is very cool, I like the effect you used on your vocals. It spruces things up a bit, which is good to do once in a while. Great track too, I'm diggin' it!

Re: The dude is hiding inside
Haha, yeah, the dude is just me with a vocal transformer. When I was younger and hadn't gone through puberty yet, it used to not work so well with me. Recently I started messing around with it and thought of many possibilities and this was one of them. Thanks for listening!

yo
ok ok i'll lay off the autotune aspect...lol

Cool track nicely put together, and very creative...which I really dig. I enjoy unorthedox outside the box, so I enjoyed this.

the only thing I didnt like was that kick drum, to "clicky" to me. I think 808s would have fit perfectly.

well done track.
peace

lip?
lol - well, it's an interesting experiment in autotune for sure, and easy to tell you had fun with it. you could drop some repeated tremolos which would probably make them more effective. male voice is cool though seemed a bit off timing-wise here and there. all comes together toward the end beautifully, nice build there - cool beans jess!

Re: lip?
Yes, I definitely had fun with it. As for the tremolo, I can't seem to sing without, habit I got into I few years back. And as for the timing, it was my first attempt at rapping so maybe I'll get there someday, who knows? Thanks for your feedback!

Re: Lip
Thank you! I have to ask though, what's the gucce runway? Is it a fashion event or something? And I don't usually listen to rap, but Eminem is one of my preferred because he just makes it sound good and full with feeling. Thanks for listening!

Juicy
Juicy with ideas, and you had no problem finding them. Things flow nicely. Only thing I'd do different is work for a little more separation in the tracks left and right etc.
Just keep doing it, you are soooo going in the right direction. Keep it fun.

I must admit you did a great job sounding like a guy! There are also other interesting vocal effects going on through out the entire song. Interesting lyrics as well. Others have commented on the tempo , but to be honest I don't hear the need to be any faster. Your final mix needs a little polish, but other than that I think you did a fine job, and you made this a fun song to listen to.

Thank you for listening and glad you like it! And after trying it out up on the computer in my bedroom, I agree, the tempo's just right. Any slower would've dragged, and any fster would've just been rushing it. And I agree with the polishing as well, but that's just soemthing I'm slowly learning along the way unfortunately...

If you're using GarageBand, I can attempt to explain how to use Autotune on there? And a lot of the vocals on my song just used filters and autotune, all with the help of GB. Thanks for listening!

The..
..blend of the repetition, near-spoken quality in some of the vocals is nice.. in a way, it gives the whole song a hazy, distant atmosphere that I like in this. Personally, I think it would be cool to hear this kind of thing in a more ambient-electropop type setting.

Thank you, glad you like the feel of it! Now when you mention ambient-electropop setting, you really striked my interest... I have no idea how that would sound, but I would like to see! Could I send you the vox as a track and give you the tempo/key/chords and see what you do with it?

Heroic_failure said 3109 days ago (August 14th, 2010)
honestly,
I don't have any good synths (hard or soft), and can just barely produce as it is, so I'm not in a good position to remix this. The song sounds good as it is anyway, it's just that to me it sounds like it's hinting in a direction that I think you'd be quite good at if you dove headlong into it.

I like how you put this together! Your "real" vocal tone sounds great and I think the tremolo effects are more catchy than intrusive.

Despite the electronic context your song feels very human--which is an artistic success in my book.

Cool tune
I think auto-tune may actually be a genuine style element these days anyway (certainly among certain artists). This tune is cool in its own right. And I have to say , as someone who always plays around with my voice electronically, I can appreciate your male alter ego.

"That boy" just has to screw with my mind and feelings all the time over the course of many years... So now I'm stuck singing my new one, Someday! I was much much much happier being lonely than being pissed/upset/angry/hurt/used/heartbroken/etc...

Sometimes I really hate boys... Mainly their stupid drama and hormones...
