What happened to the soundclick players on the posts?

Seems Soundclick has finally disabled the embedded player.

I notice overnight all the music links on this blog are gone. Here is a blog post on how much that affected my hits: https://anttismusic...

Choices To Make (Hearts To Break)



I wrote the instrumental this morning after watching this youtube video break down of "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars:

Basically.. Pop music CAN BE REALLY COMPLICATED. Is what I took home from it. 

So I began writing down all sorts of weird chords. All leading back to D Major.

That is the one thing that ties this thing down... But then I began making all sorts 
of weird chords that resolve around there.. Took it out of those chord circles a bit 
and then brought it down. I dunno if it works? 

The song ends in A Major.. I did it by feel. Which is how I imagine most rock / pop musicians 
do this thing. I do not think they think about it quite as mathematically as the guy in the 
video. Which was very entertaining though.

After that I wrote down some drums. Added melodies.. Bass.. Bounced the piano chords

and melody to wav file, processed those with blur in Edison.. Brought the blur effect here 
and there a little bit.. Sidechained the bass to drums.. Etc.. 

Here my wife enters the picture.. My wife came up with "Choices To Make, Hearts To Break". 

Sometime back.. We have been joking about what rhymes with it since then.. 

Among them were.. Choices to make, hearts to Break, cakes to bake, throw them in the lake..

Listening to the song I realized there is a place where "Choices To Make.." could be a chorus..

Then I starting writing down this cliched story.. 

But at the same time.. I could see it happening.. 

So if you hate it.. I understand.. Oh well.. Maybe it should have been "Choices To Make, Cakes To Bake".. 


Choices To Make (Hearts To Break)

choices to make 
she has got choices
 to make 
hearts to break

she was looking for a Christ on charger
but found a a broken man 
their life was a endless fight
but they rang that rusty bell 

one day she was early 
home from the work 
she heard the moans
calling her man 

she walked out 
day turned in to the night 
there was bells 
are you 

choices to make 
she has got choices
 to make 
hearts to break

it's just the end of the world 
she is not feeling fine 

she never came home 
she never said why 
she left him cold 
in his cheaters bed

choices to make 
she had choices
choices to make
