Lyrics:

The Road

This is the road to everything I knew
Memories stained and branded, always you
And some may feel that, love that, fear that, hate that,
This is the road to everything I found

And when the love you had's gone stale
That's when your emptiness prevails, leaves you longing

This is the road to everyone who cared
Slipping through my fingers, lost in time
The ringing in my years tells me
Feelings never last
The movie in reverse shows the weary future past

And when the love you had's gone stale
That's when your emptiness prevails, leaves you longing

This is the road to everything I knew
Memories stained and branded, forever you
And some may feel that, love that, fear that, hate that,
This is the road to everything I know
Everything I know

I like that driving beat and the phasey effect on the vocals is nice. Just enough of whatever it is. I think it would also be good in the Heavy Metal Style with the modes you are using. Of course you'd have to update the video to add some bikers (motorcyclist) and black leather. All kidding aside, this is another excellent production.

This is a great song! I like the beat, rhythms, and vocals. The vocal delays were perfect for this song. You voice was perfect for this also.

I agree that it has a touch of REM in there.

Thank you Patrick!

The main effects on the vocals are:
the built in Cubase flanger and a delay.
The Brandy style is a cool style, it also sounds very nice in Songsmith.

regards,
Rob

Hi Mario,

Thank you! Good to hear you like the delay effect on the vocal (I was slightly worried it was a little bit too much).
In addition to my response to Patrick:
the delay used here is the free Classic Delay Vst.
Unlike many other free Delays this one pretty much maintains the quality of the audio.
In case you're interested, this is the link:

Classic Delay Vst

regards,
Rob

Liked this tune. Good production and effects and I really think the video was top notch. I had not heard of Songsmith before so I looked it up and assume you are using the Microsoft Research software program. Downloaded the free trial to experiment with.

I'm looking forward to your next submission.

Hi Charlie,

Thanks! Yes, Songsmith is a very useful addition to band in a box. It's great for new song ideas. Most of the styles are compatible with band in a box
so you can simply copy all biab styles to the Songsmith styles folder.
Then do a quick check on which ones work, and which ones don't.
Some styles even sound better in Songsmith, the float style for example which I used in 'For love'.

Regards,
Rob

Very cool..... the falsetto parts reminded me a bit of Roy Orbison's stuff. Very nice work.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

Another beautiful song! Terrific lyric! - you write as if English were your first language - that in itself is truly amazing. As someone else said, "Haunting...."

A seamless combination of instruments. A perfect blend.

The vocal effects work nicely. But it is your vocal and harmony that REALLY shine in this one. A top-notch performance - such that the vocal becomes an instrument unto itself, perfectly blended with the rest of the production. Excellent!

A delightful listen! And a terrific video (watched it after listening to the soundcloud version). Did you create the footage? or is it stock from somewhere? Did you add the effects?

Hi Herb,

well, being a Roy Orbison fan myself (his song Mystery Girl is fantastic!), I take that as a big compliment.
Thank you!

Regards,
Rob

Hi Floyd,

Thank you! English has always been my favorite second language, and Anne-Marie used to be a teacher, also in English. So that's quite a help in writing lyrics.
The video was royalty-free stock. But we added some filters to it, now it's virtually unrecognizable.

Regards,
Rob

Yep, I do hear the REM touch. What we really like:

- The write
- The vocals (cool falsetto)
- The arrangement and choice of RT's
- The mix
- The drum sound
- The very "high bar" video

Great production you all. Keep 'em coming!

Rob and Anne Marie,

Great performace and video, both of you sound and blend so well together.

Very interesting about songsmith as well, thank you for letting us know about that.

I can just imagine you playing out in front of an audience in a club doing this particular song.

Well done.
