I sat down this morning with the intention of writing a original for the mp3 comp. By the time I finished I checked out the two entries already posted and decided I didn't stand a chance in hell so I thought I would post it here instead.

It is another vocal track. I can't say I am happy with the lyrics because it is a bit too obvious what the song is about, I prefer a little less definition. As usual the singing leave a lot to be desired :lol:

Anyway the backing is something I am very pleased with - created from scratch in software and I really love the bass fills at the end. Drums were done with Native Instruments Battery, Bass is Edirol Super Quartet and the Synth is Absynth 3.

comments/critiques welcome as always :thumb:

Good tune.....you still sound like a mix of Bowie and Knopfler:toothless
Loved the guitarparts....loved the semi dirty tone.
Hehe and that trippy thing in the background was good too.
Nice foot tapping tune...I simply just like it....not very much to say else, good tune.

Ok so if this isnt good enough to enter in this months competition I can forget about even trying to come up with an entry!
Very good composition and recording. Vocals, guitars everything was great. The only thing I didnt like that much was the "trippy" synth in the background, but that's just a matter of taste and some other people liked it so...

Very nice job!

Thank you rid - bowie knopfler I can live with that mate. was it organinc enough? hahaha
Rain - Thank you too, you are always too kind to me :)
Zeppy - Thank you very much young lady :)
Ahh linda you are just far too nice for words, thank you :D
Wiz - hahaha. :) I appreciate that mate.

and Naifuzan - thank you for your post mate. and I reckon you are right about the synth. The reason I put it in was because I had new software and wanted to try it - I guess the song didn't really need it. Good call. As to whether I should have put it in the comp, the real reason is I am not happy with it and there are already better entries. I don't mind entering something I am happy with but this one didn't really live up to my expectations. I am glad I finished it. Many thanks for your reply, questions and compliments
