Description
Vic's original can be heard here http://macjams.com/song/63913

I came into this relatively late late in the game and haven't really been able to spend the time I would have liked on it. But I truly love this song and have been playing it constantly. However please regard this version as a demo more than a finished product (hopefully I will be able to return to it later in the year)

Initial recording done in Logic Audio - acoustic guitars, rhythm box, vocals,vocoder, synth bass, strings. Got the levels approximately right. Felt the middle part of the song wasn't quite right but did not have time to record and mix further parts, so I moved to soundforge on the PC and did some creative cutting and splicing of the middle part - still not where I would like it to be but better than what I had. Also, not sure about the vocal mix but again due to lack of time I decided to go with what I had.

Vic-thanks for all the great music you do and thanks for letting me do 'To Tomorrow'

Lyrics
To Tomorrow

days no longer linger on
time escapes when you look beyond
time has left you blind

well you think that life is sorrow
and you look to tomorrow

words and pictures from day one
those memories really can hang on
sad those days are gone

well you think that life is sorrow
and you look to tomorrow

in the pursuit if happiness
sad time fade to emptiness
they can stay that way

well you think that life is sorrow
and you look to tomorrow
tomorrow

Love
The slightly eastern scale in there. The rising snyth is great too, and how can I not enjoy a good song filled with bleeps and bloops? Great job.

Ver cool tune
I like the vocal phrasing with the beat you chose. Well done song. I think the bass is a little loose and boomy sounding in places but this is a excellent version of an already excellent tune.

Brn - this is so cool
your demos beat my agonized mixes by miles - such great spread in the vocals and clarity all around. I suppose we can expect no less than 13 mixes in the pod in the days to come. Too much fun - and a great song to start with from Vic.

Great start
This has an updated (sonically) vibe like some of "XTC's" stuff, especially in the vocal arrangement department. Love the middle arpeggio sounds. Has an understated "vastness" to the whole proceeding. Cool stuff.

Terrific vocals/harmonies. With the percussion, strings and synth blips you staked out your own space in the song.

to tomorrow: today I heard a really cool song!
I can see why you like this song. Songwriting, vocals (+chorus) and synths are really fun to listen to and you pack a lot of talent in this light, upbeat setup, contrasting the lyrics brilliantly.

This track would work as acoustic, indie rock or pop song just as well (haven't heard the original yet) but maybe I'm saying that because your take on it sounds so good!

Love all the choices in terms of samples and vocals except for maybe the drums (snare a bit harsh, and somehow the drum samples were the only element I wasn't totally satisfied with). Details though. Very cool song.

Really digging the vox and electronic elements. What I loved about this song when Vic posted his original was the melody and the chord changes. Your vocals accentuate those elements and really do the song justice. Can't wait to hear your finished version. Also, I so loved the middle part that I almost wish it were longer. Especially the arpeggiation. DL
