Description
Just a silly bit of fun to get me used to GarageBand again. I was pretty rusty after a year and a half away. I had a good excuse -- her name is Sabrina and she was born the morning after Christmas, 2010. I plan on sticking around for a long time now! I had to play the darn game 20 times to get the "winner" sound. Curses on you, Simon!!

I loved that game as a lil girl. Brings back memories. Great sounding samples and music rapped up into a fun piece-good job!

As soon as it started
and I was reading your description, I thought "what a COOL idea", and then I was entranced by how you wove the harmonies and tempo in to support the recorded toy (flooding back its own aural memories to me too, loved/hated that toy!) "Well played" on many levels! :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

Hi SMG....
Welcome back once again and congratulations on the new member of your family.

This mix is quite simply brilliant. I never played the game myself but remember my friend having one. It was a while ago!!

Great sequence of sounds and rhythms. Your idea was spot on for the mix.

Looking forward to more mixes from you now.

Take care.

Close Encounters with Simon
The beginning reminded me of the five note motif from Close Encounters of a Third Kind, which turns into this pop symphonic cool thing. I enjoyed how you elevated the game to music. People will never play the game the same way again.

Congrats on the birth of your child.

What memories
Whenever I got my hands on someones Simon game, I couldn't stop. Others wanted to try it, but like a desert packrat, I'd go hide in a closet and work it till someone made me quit. Thought I was good too. Now, so many years later, I want to find one again. Back to the garage sale shopping on Saturday mornings. You awoke a craving in me with your great tune. Thanks so much. Where do I click to become a fan?
