Description
First thing's first. I'm sorry if I haven't been around for a while. I've had some major tech problems and I was also on vacation for a while.
This is a fun little song I threw together and I hope you'll like it.
I did a bunch of songs that I'll be posting soon.
This one was the corniest, popiest thing I did.
Goodbye

Lyrics
Good-bye

My eyes are getting heavy
and my mind is growing weak
I feel the trouble coming on strong
every time I speak

Ba-da-da-da good-bye, ba-da-da-da good-bye

Well, dawn is getting early
and evening's coming late
Leaving in the morning
is the one thing I hate

Ba-da-da-da good-bye, ba-da-da-da good-bye

I'm coming back tomorrow
and I'm leaving here today
I seem to be going on and on
in each and every way

Ba-da-da-da good-bye, ba-da-da-da good-bye

So, I'll pack my bags in no time
I'm gonna' leave this place
I can't help from laughing
there's a smile upon my face

Ba-da-da-da good-bye, ba-da-da-da good-bye

My eyes are getting heavy
and my mind is growing weak
I feel the trouble coming on strong
every time I speak

Ba-da-da-da good-bye, ba-da-da-da goo-bye

Hello
Nice to have a new track from you Dave - this has got an 90's manchester feel to it - Happy Mondays/ Jesus Jones sorta fell, and groovy as hell - this had me bopping round the room!
On my speakers, i gotta say the vocal sounds low to me ...I'd rather have you more upfront in the mix. Great drums, and groovy as hell - worth the wait, man!

Hey Steve, thanks
I can never get the vocals right, that's why I post these songs. Thanks for the tip, I think you're right now that I listen again.
Thanks for the nice words, too.

playful
It's really a playful song, though the topic is not. I like the girl backing vocals, it give the song that extra something.

Something corny
I did a bunch of tracks last month and have been mixing and thought that this one was the corniest, popiest tune I had. The "girl" is some sample from my lame keyboard.
Glad you enjoyed.

Wow
This is very poppy (kinda like the seed). It is a very enjoyable track. I like the mix of different drums. And the overt "yeahs" just make this so obviously mainstream that its almost funny. It puts a smile on the face. Nice production.

love this
i actually don't think that the vocals are too quiet, i listen to everything through my monitors and it sounds great. really cool song, like the odd percussion sounds a lot.

Vocals????
I have real problems with the vocals. I mix with headphones(high quality) and then listen on the monitors. Too quiet in headphones, too loud and/or just right on speakers.
Any advice. Should I mix for headphones or speakers, because, for some reason, it's totally different.

same
problem. i generally find i get a better mix if i mix with monitors (just discovered this recently). i start off with the volume low, and after i get a rough mix going, i'll turn it up a bit and walk into another room and give it a listen. i have problems with bass, my monitors and headphones love it, but when i mix it seems to get lost, so i have to do a little guess work and over compensate by cranking it a little louder than i want it to be. i think your stuff sounds great.

Vacation Elation
Well it sounds like vacation did you good. I really like this tune and it's the most fun track you've done, fer sure. Very cool chorus - ba-da-da-da da!!

The drum track is really crazy and the female vocals are just perfect. Your singing is continuiously getting better.

So glad to hear you have more for your ever growing fan club.

Welcome back!
Until I read Tom W's comment, I couldn't place the familiarity I felt when I listened to this, but Jagger it is. A lot of fun - agree about the vocals needing a tad more beef, but like this a lot.

dolby said 3751 days ago (September 7th, 2007)
Fun
Great stuff. As already said, has an 80's vibe to it, but no bad thing. I like the cowbell sound in the background (bring it up in the mix).

Agree with Steve's comments about the vox being too low, but famale b.vox are great - sexy as hell! Or is that just me???

Excellent,
Phil

Good to hear from you
Thanks for commenting, Dolby. I'm glad you like this one and hope to hear from you again in the near future.
I don't like decades.60's, 70', 80's, 90's or this one. Music is music and it doesn't matter when it's from...............but it does sound like the 80's.
Thanks again.

Hi Dave
it's good to have you back and posting - nothing like a bit of corny pop to brighten the day - the girl sample is the icing on the cake. I know what you mean about getting the vocal levels right - perhaps they're a tiny bit low in the mix but I don't think it matters really. Great stuff.

Thanks Pete
It's good to be back posting new ones. Hope you'll enjoy the rest.
I think a lot of us have problems with the vocals. I think because it's quite difficult to produce yourself.

racerat said 3750 days ago (September 9th, 2007)
yeah!
Very poppy! Totally dancin'! I agree on all the vocal callouts. I have the same problem:

When I mix with headphones ( and I try no to if I can help it) then the vox come out too loud when I listen them on the monitors. I also have found that I have my monitors too close to my listening position. This (I have been told by pro audio studio dudes) makes the mix sound more like the headphones, but not necessarily more "accurate". If you have 4-5' between your monitors you have to be at least 5' back to listen to them. I have recently discovered that not sitting this distance away from the monitors makes the vocals seem less loud, and therefore I am now (sitting farther back) tending to mix them louder. Who knew that a 2' distance would make such a difference. Now I just have to go back and remix about 1500 songs.......

Thanks for taking the time
I appreciate your advice. I'll try to tinker with it a little more. But, I think I'm getting better. I'm sort of working with limited gear, too. So, we'll see.

P.S. My thoughts are with you and all on Sept. 11th. I think you have a big N.Y. connection. I can remember of your posts mentioning that. I believe the song "Nothing" describes your thoughts.

Dave,
Thanks for the thoughts about the 9-11 anniversary. Thanks for remembering my "NY connection" (which will always be there) and for the kind words on my song "Nothing". It takes me back to that day ever time I listen to it.
Peace,
P
