Cleveland

Description
Some people mention Cleveland in their song because it sounds random or they romantize it because it's just some industrial city in the Midwest....I write about it just because that's where I'm originally from.

Lyrics
I can't get no sleep 'round here
the sirens screamin is all I hear
and some dog barkin down the street
So I lie awake at 5 am
listen to old REM
and watch shadows on my wall

and I might not be sleepin alright
cause you're somewhere in Cleveland tonight

Maybe it's that time of year
when everything just disappears
and all my thoughts fade to gray
I think too much I drink too little
I hate it down in this middle
but that's right where I am now

I might not be sleepin alright
Cause you're somewhere in Cleveland tonight

The Salvation Army came today
and they took all your shit away
but I kept that box of tapes
so I lie awake at 6 am
and listen to old REM
and watch shadows on my wall

cool
great pop feel groovin This brings me back to the late 80's early 90's it just has that feel The best thing about this song is the lyrics good writing
I would tone down the bell sounds a bit felt a little strong but that is just my opinion overall great tune

i like the melody of the song
i agree with egobandit about the bells, needs to come down a bit. also if i could suggest: centering the vocals. when they come out right next to the distorted guitar they tend to blend some. otherwise i like the melody and feel of this

Catchy Tune
I really enjoyed this tune, I think you have a solid song here, but I have to agree with the comments above. I'm no production maven but, I think this tune really deserves a better mix with more balance. It would come off 10 times better. The whole mix seems off to the left, as you've got the vocals, the rhythm guitar, and the bass biased to that side. The drums and the bells are off to the right and sound thin by comparison. As commented above I'd center up the main vocals and tone down the bells a bit. Might be interesting to pan them from one side to the other, though that might get old. You appear to have a delayed vocal on the right channel, might be good to make another track of that over on the left, with a slightly different delay, if you do center the vocals. There's a free plugin called Inspector that might help you as it gives you a visual indication of the balance as well as levels: http://www.rogernicholsdigital.com/inspector.htm. Really did like the song, your vocals and the lyrics. I hope to hear a better version in the future.

centering
I finally heard what everyone was talking about when I listened to the songs through headphones on my ipod. ALL my songs were like that! It turns out it was in the m-audio interface and the way I recorded the tracks....I fixed it all and it all sounds SO much better. Take a listen to the new tracks I just posted that say 'final mix'. I think I still need to reduce the reverb on the vocals but at least everything is centered now. Thanks for the help.

The Truffula Seeds have their roots based in Cleveland sometime in the mid 90s. Since then there have been some changes in lattitude with the band members. We continue to make music under the name even though we have separate bands in separate cities... [see more]
