My Sweet Bunny

This time a merrier song than my usual work, made for a special occasion. I'm singing the lead vocal and the extra bassline in the chorus. It was fun to write the lyrics and to sing, and BIAB really gave many nice folky instruments to choose from. I hope it brings you joy and summer feelings smile

Based on your feedback on my previous song, I tried to cut the low frequencies and lift up some higher frequencies (4khz) of my voice in the mix more, do you think it is enough or do I still need to work on it?

Lyrics:

My sweet bunny
sing me a song
snuggle in my armpit
all night long.
My sweet bunny
sing lullabies
remind me what we have done
under the skies
there was a cozy
warmup in May
then fire at the sunset of the
beautiful day.

Thanks to my angel
I feel alive
my sweet bunny, catchy smile
My bambi eye from the woods
my matching part
my sweet bunny, lionheart.

My sweet bunny
put potatoes to boil
in your hair I smell
the coconut oil.
My sweet bunny
pass me a wing
use the napkin, wipe the
grease off my chin
picnic on the isle
green moss in the sun
remember people walking by
they saw our fun.

Thanks to my angel...

My sweet bunny
pour me some wine
give me a long kiss
my valentine.
My sweet bunny
here's a pint of pale beer
your coaster has my name
you're so special and dear.
Lean on me tight
I'll walk you to my house
I'll lend you my old toothbrush
you can sleep in my blouse.

Thanks to my angel...

My sweet bunny
so important to me
my inspiration
my Calliope.
My sweet bunny
my gifted muse
I have perfect time
on a lifetime cruise
with you.

Sweet, funny song. I enjoyed!!
The mix sounds good, Janne. I would just increase a bit the volume of your vocals, but overall the mix sounds really nice and balanced, to my ears at least. Thumbs up!

Nice work here, jannesan smile It's a really cute song, and really fun as well! I like the groove it's got going - it's really playful, and easy to nod along to.

Great job, and thanks so much for sharing!

Dear "jannesan"...

"My sweet bunny
pass me a wing
use the napkin, wipe the
grease off my chin
"

Love, even at its best, can be messy emotionally, and sometimes physically, even. So, when I encounter lyrics that speak so honestly of the mundane, not-so-very-romantic aspects of loving relationships, they just ring more true than the most passionate exclamations of "Baby, I love you/need you/want you/can't live without you..." and so on.

Enjoined to the rollicking music, the lyrics for "My Sweet Bunny" are a testimonial to people who aren't afraid to "get their hands dirty" when it comes to expressing what they find truly endearing about their loved ones.

Thanks Jon, I appreciate your kind words smile I'm glad to hear the mix is good. The volume of my vocal was bit difficult to decide, because on headphones it sounds bit too loud, but on speakers maybe not loud enough.

Very nice for Christmas time too.

Hi Janne,

Sounds good to my ears ... don't think I'd change anything. It's real nice to hear you singing your own songs.

A really sweet tune and you sounded excellent on the vocals. That was a fun listen! Wishing you the very best,

Alan

Thanks Loren for your really beautiful words smile I'm really glad you appreciate the mundane aspect of my lyrics blush I agree that you don't need big words to express certain feelings, touching moments are many times in small friendly details.

Hello, Janne

It is a very fun and cute song.
Even in simple, there is ingenuity in the chord progression as usual, I feel your usual composing style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.
