The Law Of Attraction

This song has been available as a Vocaloid version for some time, but now that I got Miira to sing it, I made a new mix using the Xtra Style _HEROIC.STY (Heroic Modern Pedal Steel Ballad) from Xtra Styles PAK 3 with the help of some additional RealTracks and sound effects.

Style : _HEROIC.STY
Category: Country

RealTracks in style: 518:Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 2825:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm CountryPopMike12-key Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 542:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dreamy Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 2667:Pedal Steel, Background DreamySingleNote Ev 075
RealDrums in style: PopRock8ths^01-a:Closed Hat, Snare, b:Open Hat, Snare

Additional RealTrack instruments:

Electric Guitar #1684
Acoustic Guitar #364
SynthBell #2265
Sax #403?
Fiddle #624?

Vocals: Miira

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017

Lyrics:

You have to believe in yourself
you need to be the starlet of your show
the goal is to glow like Saint Lucia
now it's time for you to know.

you have to ascend from the shades
you need to be a candle in the night
the path is to ask what portrays your soul
diamonds that cast your inner light.

Learn the power in the law of attraction
feel the universe, its energies within
desire the life you really wish to have
and your dreams shall come shining in.

You have to believe in yourself
strive for the skyline, don't dwell in what is gone
to win is to bring positivity
feel the golden crown of the sun.

[chorus]

You have to emerge from the grief
you need to be a prism spreading joy
the high is to smile, then your heart receives
the spirit no-one can destroy.

[chorus]

The law of attraction
The law of attraction
know, ask and feel
learn to be
open to receive.

Very modern sound and mix. Mira does a good job with the vocal and nice sax solo. Interesting song to listen to.

The first thing I noticed was the somewhat discordant intro, quite heavy, which then mellowed into a pleasant song.

The vocals are particularly good.

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190
