I told you last post that I would have a new song. I have written a solid chorus and bridge pair, but in the two weeks I have given myself, I have not gotten an opening that I like. In the mean time, I will post another old song.
I came up with I’ll Say Hi Tomorrow in 2006 when I tried to sit down and make up an entire album in one sitting. I wrote out a track list, posted below, and in about an hour made up the songs for each track. If I haven’t finished my new song next post, you might get to hear them all! After listening back to the songs, it was clear that this one had potential. After developing the song, I recorded it as my main project for Advanced Sound Design class. It has ukulele, bass guitar (heavily edited—it was the first time I’d picked up a bass), multiple vocal tracks, MIDI sounds with Reason patches (the bass solo), and a shaker which is my voice sampled through the entire song. The only thing I owned that I contributed on this track was my voice and the ukulele. The rest came from friends or the computer.
As all the songs so far, I would change elements of the song if I made it today. I’ll stop writing this note soon and hope you’d assume that the canvas never finishes being painted, it just gets cut off. Here’s the track list for I’ll Say Hi Tomorrow, the album.
- The Anthems of Flying
- Patches of Clover
- Ruby Water Eyes
- Live a Tale to Tell
- I’ll Cry Tears
- I’ll Say Hi Tomorrow
Does that tracklist not sound amazing?
