I think it's great :lol:

I cant tell what you're singing about, or what language, but it sounds to me like a sort of classic french love film kind of song, which can't really be a bad thing in this case. ;)

Over all, very plesant to listen to, and you don't sound gay :D

The language is Portuguese. Thanks for the nice words. Let's hope she enjoys it! :D

Are you really 17? The stuff you're writing now pisses all over the stuff I was writing at your age. Fuck, some of it pisses over the stuff I'm writing now. Great talent man. Never stop writing. I'm afraid to think what amazing songs you'll be writing in 5 or 6 years tome.

Haha, thanks a lot, man. Yeah, I'm 17. I'd like to hear some the stuff you made when you were my age, to see if what you said is true.

As for the songs I'll be writing in 5 or 6 years time, well, let's just hope I live that long.

No way man, trust me it was shit. Hell, the music I was making when 3 years ago when I was 21 was shit. That song about Luana is fucking amazing. And you just wrote that right? It's better than all the other songs you posted. That's progress man. You've got a sweet voice, the knack of a good melody, tasty harmonies, you put to shame so many songwriters I know. Also: you are so laid. Shit, I wish people wrote songs like that about me. And you record it with Cool Edit Pro? *swoons*

When's your album out? :rolleyes:

Don't be so down man, you have talent!

The Luana song was written in two very spaced sittings. In the first sitting, about 3 months ago, I wrote the verse melody/harmony, and in the second, almost two months later, I wrote the "chorus". The lyrics were a different story altogether. It took me ages to write them. And recording was a bit of a pain as well. Took me approximately a week(but that's mostly because I had to make the arrangement as I recorded).

And yes, I record everything with Cool Edit Pro.

That was more information than you asked for, wasn't it? My bad.

As for me getting laid, un-bloody-likely. She did like the song. She said it makes her cry everytime. I guess that's a good thing. But she knows better than to transfer her love for the song to its songwriter, who quite frankly never fails to make a fool of himself in front of her. If the song had any intention, it was to try and "soften" the bad impression she probably has of me, it was not to win her heart, let alone her fanny.

Thank you for your compliments, I really appreciate that you've gone through the trouble of writing so much about my music. You're a champion, and I still want to hear your work. :)

Nah, it's cool. It's interesting hearing how people write songs. My songs usually come in bursts of inspiration, rarely are they drawn out over length of time.

Aw, don't be so downbeat. I remember being 17 and writing songs for girls and playing it to them and getting nowhere too, but I reckon it was more down to me being a introverted geek lacking in self confidence and dress sense more than anything else. So uh, I don't know what my point was. Oh yeah, you can win her over! Go for the win!

There's a whole thread on my music in the music folder! :)

That means you care about 'em.

You're damn fine, m'lad. Your songs sound like the stuff I wanted to hear when I was 16, which makes me very, very sad and hopelessly optimistic. you sound like Serafin and falling in love with someone I could never have and spreading my wings.

Go forth and kick ass.

Why does it make you sad? And hopelessly optimistic? :o

I'm going to check out that Serafin dude as well as ojlim's work as soon as my computer gets back from repair.

I really must lay off the beers when I post, it doesn't help me make sense! I mean, the songs have a melancolic optimism to them.

Serafin are great; sign up to their mailing list and you can download a free two-CD acoustic album. It's a lot gentler than their alt. rock album.

This dumb classmate of mine attempted to write lyrics in English and I made a song out of them. It's 5:41 minutes long and makes no sense. Some feedback would be appreciated, as long as you bear in mind that my recording "apparatus" consists of a shitty mic and Cool Edit Pro, and that the song isn't serious(so basically, you can't criticize me at all :unsure: ). Those who decipher the backwards message that plays halfway through win nothing.

The song's called It's Not Another King Kong. Please excuse the demonic filesize.

Here are the lyrics:

Did you nick the intro from The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill by the Beatles?

Otherwise, I'm liking this so far. Will get back to you once I've listen to the rest.

EDIT - Your stuff is pure aural sex. Loving it. Wish I could write songs!

FINALLY someone notices it. Thanks! :(

Hahah, no worries. I just happen to love The Beatles. :unsure:

Great stuff, Yonlu. Really have enjoyed listening to it. You have some major talent. I'm about a year older than you are, but I don't have anything even close to that kind of talent. I manage a friend's rock band, and I'm experimenting with lyrics and so forth (which you were kind enough to comment on) but that's about it. My only real skill is with words; do journalism and script writing as well. Would love to be able to create music like you.

EDIT - Just checked your profile - you are one year younger than me, exactly. To the very day.
