Throwaway, a capella


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Much like Intangible, this is a lyric intended for something else. I doubt lightning will strike twice and there's a good bet that this stinks. But you folks haven't burned me at the stake yet, so here this is. Yeah, it is depressing but this is my life. Thank you for listening.
As always, I don't mind re-recording to fit your music.

Char
I feel for ya, and I wish I could put some noise/music around your "A Cappella" we can all have down periods and be very depressed. I have had one really deep down period this winter.

You my dear friend hang in there and never give up, life is not fair but with a good heart and some good friends it can feel a little brighter.

Much love from Sweden
Your friend, Kenta

I wonder
sometimes, Kent, if this is all there ever will be. You can get used to most anything. May your life become brighter with each day. It helps to have people that you love and who love you. Thanks for listening. :)

Even if that
doesn't happen, putting the words down and expressing the feeling helps a lot. Thank you. :)

Standstill
When I was listening to this, it made me stop what I was doing and just focus on what you were singing. Your lyrics and delivery are very moving. Certainly those should not be your personal sentiments.

This is a good song with real potential, in my opinion. Thanks for the download :)

The words
have gone through changes and I've had several melodies. It has been my experience that you can sing the same song with different melodies which give the words a chance to mean what you want them to. This cadence was the slowest that I tried. Yeah, unfortunately, I think along these lines a lot. But, I'm still here. Thank you so much. :)

That's a pretty light and pleasant sounding melody. I love that you set such a heavy lyric to it. The contrast between melody and lyric is great. I think it's by far your best melody to date. The recording quality is also quite nice (you're engineering is getting better). The lyrics are the real winner here. It takes a lot of guts to write and share something that honest. Thanks for sharing this Char!

Actually,
I write what I know. I don't do anything but push the record button. As long as the mic doesn't go fritzy, this is the sound I get. You are very sweet to encourage me, Andrew. Thank you. :)

You are biased, Yves.
But, I'll take the compliment and offer you my gratitude for all of your support and for your friendship. I wish I could do more. Thank you. :)

Sad
What a sad song, and you sing it with so much emotion. I always love your pieces, I can hear some harmonica being added to this.

If anyone wants to play
anything on this, I'd welcome that. Yes, I'm a sad case. You are a sweetie to take the time to listen. And, I'm very grateful, Dani. :)

Generous...
Hey Char, your comments about other people's music are so generous and giving it might be time to give yourself a break as well. Hang in there. You just never know what is around the corner. You have many, many supporters here at MJ. Take care, Peter.

PaulaMunk said 2520 days ago (January 17th, 2011)
Why, thank you,
Peter. I wish I could be more helpful but I often don't even know what instruments are being played. I can only tell someone that I liked the words or the sounds and that the music evoked some mood. When you run around in circles, there are no blind corners and I think I'm doing that most of the time. I get some pleasure out of coming here and I have to be satisfied with that. Thank you for listening. :)

Nice melody and well sung. Dark lyric paints a sad picture.

Yes,
too much of what I write is depressing, I'm sure. I sang this to about four different melodies but when I hit the button, this is what I got. Some day when I experience happy I might get more upbeat with the tunes. Thank you for listening. I really appreciate it. :)

New Old Music
What a touching song, both in lyric and melody? The song reminds me of the Ralph Stanley song from the movie "Oh, Brother Where Art Thou," which I can't remember the name of.

Thank you for being so honest in your music and emotion.

Why thank you,
Tim for the listen. I loved the bluegrass music from that movie. I sometimes wonder how I was so lucky to find this place. Thank you. :)

Geez Char...
Way to pour your heart out... This is beautifully sorrowful my friend. Powerful delivery of those poignant lyrics!

Burned at the stake? I highly doubt it!

Take care!

I'm in a rut.
Only good thing I can see happening is that my rut is getting bigger. I'm usually surprised that someone finds something of value. And I'm even more surprised that I haven't as yet bored everyone to death. Give me some more time...I'm on it. Just have to move a couple walls over in my rut. Thanks for putting up with me, Micheal. :)

I might have something up my sleeve for this one. Nice. I've just been busy lately, so this might take some time to finish :)

Okay, Mannix.
Whatever and whenever you do is fine with me. Well worth waiting for.
Thank you so much. :)
