Description
I honestly don't care what people think of this or what they have to say about it. People could give me lip for using AutoTune again [and not even quite as well] but I wouldn't care. For me, this song was a pure dish of therapy with a side of synthesizers. My rant: boys, or more like a specific one. I started this song this previous Tuesday afternoon and it's been the main thing keeping me sane the past couple days. Hopefully y'all appreciate something about it!

Lyrics
Where were you
When I needed you
Turn around
Always there

Addiction
Damn complications
Going down
Losing air

Play a song
For me you're so wrong
Make no sound
Make me dare

I'm not fine
So much for my lie
You are bound
I can't bear

Waiting, wanting, waiting, wanting
Always losing, never gaining
Waiting, wanting, waiting, wanting
Always losing, never gaining
So come here
Be a dear
Please listen
Cos what I say's gonna happen
A trick of fate
And we're the bait

I'll figure out someday
What I need to say
To make you stay
For more than a day
I'll figure out someday
How to find a way
To make you stay
For more than a day
Someday
Someday

I can't eat
Isn't that so sweet
Face this mound
You still care

I'm still here
After all these years
Can't leave town
It's not fair

Can't you see
That's it's always me
On the ground
As you stare

Good and bad
It's our yin and yang
Sinned rebounds
Damned affairs

Waiting, wanting, waiting, wanting
Always losing, never gaining
Waiting, wanting, waiting, wanting
Always losing, never gaining
So come here
Be a dear
Please listen
Cos what I say's gonna happen
A trick of fate
And we're the bait

I'll figure out someday
What I need to say
To make you stay
For more than a day
I'll figure out someday
How to find a way
To make you stay
For more than a day
Someday
Someday

How can we cross the line
If it's so abstract
Who's the one on your mind
How should anyone react

I know that all good things
Seem to have an end
So make the pain go away
Or just come back once again

You need to make a choice
Damn well keep with it
You may not be some boy
But I hate taking the hit

Please don't wait for my tears
To let someone fall
Things need to change my dear
Someone needs to stand tall

Waiting, wanting, waiting, wanting
Always losing, never gaining
Waiting, wanting, waiting, wanting
Always losing, never gaining
So come here
Be a dear
Please listen
Cos what I say's gonna happen
A trick of fate
And we're the bait

I'll figure out someday
What I need to say
To make you stay
For more than a day
I'll figure out someday
How to find a way
To make you stay
For more than a day
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday...

Someday
We have all been there girl! Ignore the autotune comments, people on this site are anti autotune. I think it is a musician thing, they see it as cheating or something I think. Anyway, this a very pretty melody you have here. Your voice is very intimate sounding. Very Enya with a little dance vibe mixed in. Always be true to what you want to do as an artist. Don't let what others say sway you from where your passion is. I have liked your last two posts with autotune. Keep up the good work.

Re: Someday
Heya, thanks for the support! Glad you liked how this turned out, and I'll take the Enya thing as a complement cuz I think shes' awesome! The funny thing is, there's another song that my mom thinks also has an Enya vibe... Funny! Anywayz, thanks for the support, for listening, and commenting! Much appreciated!

There is something here
I can't put my finger on what it is - but there is something kinda hypnotizing about this.
I don't know whether it's the lyrics, they synth textures, your voice - but whatever it is; it sounds good.

Oh, just one thing - please fix the cutoff at the end.
You've built this whole nice soundscape around the me, and then you kinda kicked me out at the last second.

But all in all, this sounds pretty good!
Hope everything works out for ya!

It works for me. Something about the quiet repetition and the short lines of the lyrics. Enjoyed the listen, and I hope the therapy worked.

What if the Eurythmics did Darkwave? This is almost what it might sound like... It's got that cool big '80s synth thing going, but at a slower darker pace than "Who's that Girl". Intriguing stuff.

Re: Infectious Melody!
Thank you! The lyrics were very personal for me. There's meaning behind every line, and some lines even have multiple meanings. I'll have to say though one of my favorite lines would have to be this:

"You need to make a choice
Damn well keep with it"

It just helps me feel a little bit stronger inside and out, and if I feel like trouble's coming for the two of us, I just need to remember that.

Anywayz, glad you enjoyed listening to it! Thanks a bunch! :)

Re: Cool stuff
Thank you! I find it funny though how my better stuff is the stuff I didn't necessarily plan out in advance. I just randomly get an epiphany moment and start going away at it on GB and BOOM! I have a great piece! For instance, The Scarlet Letter was done in than 12 hours because it was a school project I had procrastinated... lol This one came out in less than 48 hours. And Lonely came out but in a week and a half but it would have been sooner had I not been lacking time for recording the vocals. And glad you like my voice! Thanks for the feedback and for listening!

Autotune is really
just another instrument when it's used creatively.

I'm no lover of Autotune normally but you've pushed it so far here that it's created an extra texture which works well within the context of the song.

Nicely arranged and put together.

Cheers

Dick

Re: Autotune is really
Hmmm I like you put that, it's just another creative instrument! And really, when you think about it, there kinda are many ways to go with Autone, cuz that's just one effect and there are so many other effects and filters you can add to add more to it.

Thanks for listening and for the feedback! Much appreciated!

Can't imagine
why anyone would get antsy about creative use of Autotune. Here it's used to great effect and lends texture and interest to the composition. One may as well complain that we all use computers to put our compositions together or that our analogue modelling synths are "fake".
I really like your synth backgrounds here, they have a delicious Tubeway Army feel.
Overall a hypnotic and original piece well worth repeated listens. Great stuff.

Thank you, so happy you like the way I used it! And you do have a good point 'bout how we use computer composition programs! And synths are so cool, as I've always thought... lol

So glad you like it and find it worth listening to multiple times! Thanks!

Very effective and your point of pain, is felt.
The answer of course, is not necessarily what we want to hear or comprehend, at this period of discomfiture in our life.

Yep, I'd say so! But I'll figure something out someday, whether it means the happy ending with him or being able to move on. (Somehow I doubt either will happen, but I'll still stupidly hope for one or the other.)

Nice tune! Don't be mad at me! I didn't do it... Wasn't me!

use what you want
Its still all music created to either get a message across or to entertain. Using auto tune is only like using a keyboard that will play a chord with one finger over a piano. The bloody thing still plays a chord. Music is great what you create will spark with some and not with others. So write what makes you happy or sad who cares it all gets thrown Into the big bucket we call macjams. I enjoyed your piece.

Someday
Okay, I put off commenting because I was one of those people giving you lip on the last one about the AutoTune.

The fact is I think this song is great. It has a hypnotic groove. The synth sounds you chose and the way you arrange them are great. The whispery spoken/sung chorus is great (wanting waiting always losing never getting). The spoken word section at 3:09 is great. The production and mix are very good, probably your best to date. Sometimes the vocal clips a tad (4:26). But's that's a minor technical issue that most of us (myself included) battle. All in all this is great work and you should be proud of it.

I'm just not an AutoTune guy. I think it takes your wonderful human voice and removes too much of the humanity from it. But like I've said before, "I'm very old!"

CrazeeFlootGrrl said 3148 days ago (September 5th, 2010)
Re: Someday
That's fine, I'm happy that you at least gave it a listen!

And thank you, I love synths. I can't ever seem to stay away from them! And the "wanting waiting wanting waiting always losing never gaining" part was kinda fun to do, especially with the telephone effect, while mixing in a little of my own. I'm still getting there recording-wise, but slowly getting there all the while! (Especially when I think about the crap I made like four years back! No one has even heard that stuff! lol) So thank you!

I'll probably find a balance for now of using AutoTune and my normal. I like my voice but the Autotune is a fun phase I'm going through for now. But aside from the AutoTune part, I think I have finally found my little niche for music. I guess you could say I'm a pop/rock/techno kinda person, and I think I finally found a balance that I like.

All in all, thank you for giving it a chance an giving me feedback! Greatly appreciated! :)

Geez...
After the opening salvo in your description I'm a little apprehensive about commenting! Ha ha...

But I have to write something... Gotta tell you that I really enjoyed your effected vocal delivery in this piece. Very cool! The "wanting...waiting" chorus provides a nice change-up. The speaking parts work well too.

Color me appreciative I guess.

Be well friend!

PS:
I see I'm in the minority on the AT. You DO have a gorgeous voice and don't really need to rely on effects; but sometimes it's fun to use them in certain types of tunes. I effected my vox in "Book Of Days" and took a little heat for it. You can't get everybody to agree on something like effected vocals. Never will. Best thing is to stick to your guns if YOU like the way it sounds.

Again, nice job over-all Jessica!

Yes! yes!
We are all bad. Evil, in fact put us down and walk away. That's what I told my daughters and my house was still filled with those danged young testoserony phoney ballonies. So I started to show them my gun collection and talk about the different ways of gutting fresh kill while fingering the blade of a Bowie knife. It brought hormonal harmony right quick.

Oh, the song . . . well you always present professional material and always something I find interesting and catchy. In addition AT or no AT you are a talented vocalist and producer, so please no more apologizing and do whatever you please. That fact that it also pleases others is affirmation. There will always be dissenters, which if they are polite, help us grow, and if not, they can be ignored.

But as a Dad I'm still inclined to say shoot every male that would expose but not propose and laugh at those that do (politely of course).

Jess, you are wise beyond your years. The proof is in the lyrics. Boys, yes I can totally relate. It's as if they live on a separate planet in their own mind! Luckily they come a dime a dozen, always remember that.

I really like the usage of AutoTune on this piece. It gives the song a haunting feel, makes it more personal. Keep venting through song, it's working big-time!

Loved this!
Very heartfelt vocals without being "soft". You have a great voice and the production on this is superb. There's a dark vibe that underpins all this that I like and it's relentless without being harsh or in your face too much. The "wanting waiting" bit is a cool twist and keeps it fresh. Could hear this on MTV! Great tune. p.s. knackers to those autotune bashers! Doesn't matter a damn.
