D'oh!
Just caught the "I'm staying forum". Clever! And the 46 seconds thing doubles up the punch.

Way to go!

Roxylee said 3429 days ago (May 1st, 2008)
It had to be 46 seconds
and what is really funny is that i didn't plan that part, it just happened. lol
I'm psyched that this inspired you to try doing something new.:-)

SMIRK * a bazillion
This is wonderful on many levels... as you know, I love using humor and creativity to poke fun at a bad "state of affairs", and you've done so with aplomb! Secondly, your singing is sweet as usual, and your little canon here is simple and very pretty... oh yes, the right word for "simple and pretty" is elegant. Great forum end-cap too, Roxylee! I must quote the wisdom of a great friend here, who is known to say:
I love this place!

I'm staying too, despite the mildly annoying 404-moire-patterns in the wallpaper!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Why, thank you, sir Drak
I knew you, the king of smirk, would appreciate this little number. I was going to add my comment to the forum thread, but when I read someone's suggestion to just go write a song about it, I thought 'Why not, might as well try.' I'd memorized the error message and thought it would make a good line. you know how it is when you can either smirk or scream when you see it for the hundredth time in a week? I tried the beta page, but I keep coming back to the original. Thank you for appreciating my humor so much- it means a lot. :-)

Roxylee said 3429 days ago (May 1st, 2008)
Aww. thank you
You know, I think almost anyone could do this type of song. It's really easy- all you do is sing one line that can repeat itself in a layer and sound good with itself- just try a few. Then sing harmony with it, then layer the tracks. It takes awhile to get the parts lined up with each other, but I bet you'd be surprised at the results if you tried doing one. Hey, just use the same melody with different words for a test. i'd love to hear about your trying one of these. :-)

OK, it's from this:
Your last comment was 45 seconds ago. This site requires at least 45 seconds between comments

and

Gee, I've looked everywhere but I can not find http://www.macjams.com/song/song_profile.php

and

There is a forum thread titled "I'm Stayin," which inspired the little ditty.

Thank you so much for listening. your piano pieces are so amazing...:-)

How clever
Leave it up to you, Mrs Talent herself to come up with this one. This is very cute. Your voice is great and the harmonies are very good as well. Made me laugh to listen and be reminded of those little things that are not the end of the world here...we just act like they are sometimes! Thanks Roxylee, wonderful job!!

tribute song?
Is this song also inspired by a MacJammer's sudden self-excision? Regardless of where the song came from, you have my renewed interest in your beautiful voicings. Gee, I've looked everywhere for female harmonies as nice as these.
Roxylee said 3425 days ago (May 6th, 2008)
i think so!
Reading the forum posts stirred me to write this one. Thank you for taking the time to come over to listen; I appreciate it. :-)
