Stop calling her ugly
*******************

stop calling her ugly
when you just
want someone beside you
don't you know
stop calling her ugly
and you too
stop calling him ugly

if you dont want to die
all alone in moonless night
if you dont want to die
in the wreck of your life

if you don't want to die
with the tissues by your side
if you don't want to die
better be nice be kind

don't be creepy
love is not like porn flick
there is more to love
than just the bumping uglies bit

love takes time
and love takes plenty patience
if you want some love
you better learn to give

stop calling her ugly
when you just
want someone beside you
don't you know
stop calling her ugly
and you too
stop calling him ugly

stop

stop

stop calling her ugly
stop calling him ugly..

You better Kiss and make up..

Damian Keyes - STOP SELLING MUSIC!


Wow. Just great! GTA V sold twice in launch weekend than the whole sales for music
2017. .Money can still be made from streaming and doing concerts. But in his mind
the whole idea of selling music is over.

Why modern music is getting simpler..


Good talk by Rick Beato and Rhett Shull on how music is getting simpler and
WHY it is getting simpler: The thing I took home from it was: "Modern music is written on Tuesday between 9 - 5 by songwriting groups with pressure to make money for the label.."

Also. It really is getting simpler and simpler by the decade. Music 10 years ago was
more complicated than today. The further back you go.. The more complicated it was..

At the same time. Production value is going up. So audio engineers are getting better
while songwriting focuses solely on making catchy, radio friendly songs that people
want to consume like fast food.

Which is understandable. You make money. You want to keep on making money. More
money if possible.

Babytalk



Vocal



Instrumental


I began my morning by watching Dylan Tallchief videos and then I found this: 



The Keyzone Classic Yamaha piano BLEW ME AWAY. 

So I downloaded and messed with it.. I realized that as good as it sounds. For example 
on yesterday's project it did not work. It takes too much space in the mix. It is too wide. 

But as I was playing with it. I came up with the basic chords of this song. Which I have 
done a "few" times before. But never to shy away from repeating myself. I began playing
something in c# with a triangle 2 synth.. 

The idea about babytalk came to me yesterday. I have not googled if it has been done 
before. I imagine. A few times. Probably from the SEX angle. But I wrote it the way 
I felt it. 

The grossbeat on the drum loop (that comes with stock FL studio) worked miracles, at least
I thought so. I should use the grossbeat stutter more. . 

Two coffee cups later after EXTREMELY SHITTY NIGHT (Nightmares for both me and my wife, 
waking up to tornado hitting me directly inside a building. ) I decided to write babytalk. . 

Because I am getting pretty tired of this constant end of times expectation going on in 
my head. 

#pop 


Babytalk

Babytalk to me (repeat) 

gimme that sweet babytalk
speak to me like I was five
tell me everything is gonna be alright 
hold me when when I wake up at night 

where we're goin I have no clue 
but I want feel less blue 
so treat me like a child 
I want to go fly a kite 

take off in to blue 
with you 
and fly 


like we used to in our dreams 
when we would hear 

babytalk 

babytalk to me (repeat) 

my bunny 

my georgia peach 

why can not we cry
the pain away 
why can not we laugh 
like we used to 
i would give you anything 
for a moment 
to have the mind 
of a child 

so

babytalk to me (repeat)

Unequalized sub bass and the problems it causes..

I was looking into different sub bass techniques and loaded a naked (without any fx)
sine wave into Harmor..

Holy cow that thing made both me and my wife anxious when it was played at extremely
low frequencies.. That made me google into low frequency sounds and anxiety..

There is a perfectly good reason why low frequencies make us anxious. They are usually
connected to predators. Earthquakes. Calamities.

Now here is the thing. In modern EDM you usually have audio engineers who mix
the songs. While they do it. They filter out extreme low end of the frequencies at
20 - 30 hz. Which actually are no longer even audible. But you can FEEL them.

A lot of kids probably do sub bass not thinking about that. They just let the sub bass
be in a channel, without equalizer. Not really knowing what they do..

It is probably causing a lot of people problems. .

 I like music with less bass.. When I make music, I tend to use overly simple,
sampled bass guitars / ready made patches that I have found to work.

I really love how orchestra is set up. The low coming from double bass / bass string to
the high of triangles and piccolos. I am not a fan of extreme wall of sound that you hear
these days.. But then again, maybe it is just me.

But yes. The low end in my tracks could be a lot better..

There's Still Sunshine (Was Smoothly)



Vocal



EDIT: Added vocals. Made it longer. Tweaked it here and there.

I was feeling down today and wanted to make something chill. So I googled
how to make a Latin beat. 

This came up: 



I liked the chill guitar chord playing..  And did something a little bit similar. 

But then I ran out of oomph to make it more latin. So I made it more me instead.

There's Still Sunshine

trying to find the keys to this life 
lost on the supermarket aisle
playing peekaboo with things 
out of sight 
as you are walking 
by my side 

slowly losing to the the time 
you are out of will, to fight 
not a day goes by
that we are not hit by
 bad news 

you are me 
i am you 
we are the same 
but we are not 
through 

there's still 
sunshine 
there's still 
good moments

have faith 
my baby 
in love 
in mercy 

there's still 
sunshine 

just living on a faith 
like a beggar on the ground 
trying to find a solace
when there is none 
to be found 

looking at the smiles 
that you had yesterday
throw away the pictures 
let the past let it fade

there's still 
sunshine 

trying to find the keys to this life 
lost on the supermarket aisle
playing peekaboo with things 
out of sight 
as you are walking 
by my side 

there's still sunshine yea
there's still sunshine baby
there's still sunshine
let it shine, on you 

there's still 
sunshine 
there's still 
good moments

have faith 
my baby 
in love 
in mercy 

there's still 
sunshine
