Description
Please listen to the updated version of this song; I am only keeping this one around to preserve the discussion.

A collaboration between 9 year old Philine van Es and TennesseeVic. Philine wrote the melody and lyrics for a school performance, I put some instrumental backing under it.

Lyrics
[attempted translation from Dutch by TV]

Flowers are budding, love is in the air,
everything is coming back to life
(repeat)
Fresh new notion everywhere are on everyone's mind;
it's early light, it's longer light, days are so much warmer;
Everyone goes outside, your little brother is acting silly, everything goes crazy, spring is really here;
Flowers are.......

How neat!
Wow! That was neat! I liked to hear it in Dutch! I love languages and hearing them. It is good ear candy! What is the last word, however? sounds like "lente?"

How neat!
Yes, "Lente" is Dutch for "Spring".

This was a fun tune to do. It's a challenge to take a simple melody and at the
same time keep the whole song simple, but still make it a bit sophisticated.

This a Very Cute
And very well put together. The mix of naivity and the
more complex background is charming.

nice tune
Bach-like..... That hadn't occurred to me, but yeah, large parts of the Bach
keyboard repertoire are firmly lodged in my motor memory, so that would
make sense.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Wonderful reviews thanks!
Hi,

I am Philine's father. I posted a request for help here on
MacJams to make Philine song swing. TennesseVic did a
marvelous job on the song, very professional!

Philine is absolutely amazed by all your wonderful
comments. Thank you.

To hear the original track and see a picture of Philine with
her composition on paper look at our website.

Happy, happy, happy.
What a cheerful, sunny song. Philine's voice is very good and it's amazing what a strong melody she wrote. Your instrumentation is the perfect background, too.

I'd also like to hear the vocal in the foreground a little more, but that's just a tiny issue, reallly.

I like all the movement in the bass line. The string synth pad is also very nice.

After a day's work in the fields I enjoy playing the pump organ. Some of it pleases my wife Dotty, and some of it pleases the neighbours. I hope it may please you too.... [see more]
