Song: 'Behind The Lies'

  1. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    (Not really sure what section to put this thread in, but here it is anyway!)

    OK basically I have been doing a bit of music-writing recently, I have two songs atm written, one of which I sent to Sheep and the other one here. I worked it out on the piano, and found a sheet-music transcriber where you can add guitars, violins, flutes, drum lines, all sorts of things and it then exports it as a MIDI file, so the sound that you hear is computer generated, which probably explains the slight tinnyness of it.

    At some point I will do the other song with instruments and all, cos at the moment all I have is the piano line which needs adding to. Anyway, thank you to sheep for making me write them up and eventually finding a way to turn them into actual recorded noise! Please take a listen and feekback would be appreciated greatly!

    The song is called “Behind the lies” and the lyrics are about an abusive relationship, where the victim is too scared to tell anybody … yeah, happy isn’t it lol. (But don’t worry, it’s not based on any personal experience or anything like that!) But I thought sad lyrics would suit the funeral-esque tone of the song, but I shan’t post the lyrics yet as they are not complete. Oh and i'm not singing it, just no.


  2. Not to blow smoke up your arse or anything but that is literally quite good.

    Even though I'm nowhere near the best singer in the world I am going to try and record a version - can't wait to see the lyrics! :D

    if u want to i can sing for u...
    that was not meant as a joke...
  4. Jonny ;) That was a very nice tune. Now I look forward to the lyrics :)

    I expect the lyrics to be in Catalan as a homage to Andorra. :D

    Nice melody but I can't imagine it with lyrics. I think I prefer it as an instrumental piece.
    Way to go, Johny :D

    :o !! Jonny congrats!!!!
    It's really good! Altho the lack of instruments make the tune sound monotonic , at a greater scale in the end of the song ,
    if u let the music spirit intergrate in it , u can feel the sensitiveness it has!
    I'd like to know the lyrics btw. The title sounds interesting :)

    Oh , and on 1:37 , i believe if u made the "tragicness" more intense until the end of this part(1:57) that would make it more interesting;)

    Plz add more instruments:):) and Keep trying ur good work

    Ty guys :) Like Alex said, i'll try and make it sound more full. When I post the lyrics if any of you want to sing it you're more than welcome to, and also the other song, i've just finished mostly and am just adding touches, and its far more upbeat and less funeral-y than this song :D
  9. Alex Identified Flying Object

    it just needs some more intensity in it , some more power
    i wouldent like you to turn into upbeat the la-voix-ian way...!:o:o:o
  10. Almila i am what i am

    i loved it!:o *awe*
  11. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    No no no don't worry, thats a different song, which is supposed to be upbeat :P
  12. CTP Jass hater

    This was really good Jonny, and I look forward to hearing a version with some lyrics. I really liked the break at ~1:56, and the way it built after that. If the vocals are decent, the singer can put in some extra emotion and effort to lift the song as well in that part. What I wasn't a fan of so much was the flute (I think) part in the first part of the song. The rising and falling 'tone'. I found that a little repetitive. It might be that its too loud, or without vocals that I notice it more. But it is definitely not a bad piece of music, and I'm looking forward to hearing someones vocals on it.

    My personal view is that there is a lack of ethnic beats.

    You're such a closet Hadise fan.

    It has Broadway written all over it.

    OK so last night in the chat Annette asked if I would post the other two songs, so I shall :P Also I re-did “Behind the lies” so its just the piano now and nothing else, and imo sounds less like funeral music :D

    Song 1: “Behind The Lies”http://www.4shared.com/file/178621116/1f2bda76/01_Song_1.html

    Song 2: [No Name] NB This song did have lyrics but they were sh*te so I’ll redo them.

    Song 3: [No Name]

    Song 2 and Song 3 are quite similar, in their structure and things like that, in that they both start off with just a piano and build up to quite a big ending, so next time I’ll do something different. :)
  17. Mina Member with a "past"

    Song 3 is my favourite :D
  18. Thanks Jonny :) I like all of them.
