Slow Motion

I just finished redoing this song. This was written in February for a random collaboration during FAWM. The lyrics were written by John Nicholson (who I believe is now a BIAB user as well.) He provided the lyrics and I came up with the music with the help of BIAB.

About two weeks ago John asked about using the song on a compilation album to benefit Autism research. I agreed but wanted to rework and polish it a bit first. This is the final product.

Slow Motion

Real Tracks:
536:Bass, Acoustic, Pop
528:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Hank
1140:Guitar, Electric,Rhythm Country Swing Clean Held
1142:Ukulele, Strumming Folk Swing
Real Drums=Nashville Swing

Lyrics:

People tell me everyday
Time so quickly passes away
There’s never time to do it all
Somethings always left however small

That may very well be true
It even used to be my point of view
But now there's just no reason or rhyme
I never seem finish on time

No matter how hard I try
Or whatever is my notion.
Everything I want to do
Seems to go on in slow motion

Time keeps fading in and out
Everything I start to doubt

Yesterday seems years ago
6 years seems five minutes I know
I’m trying hard to put things back in order
Using CD video and tape recorder

I remember when I was a boy
I can clearly see each childhood toy
But yesterdays just a mystery
Might as well be ancient history

No matter how hard I try
Or whatever is my notion.
Everything I want to do
Seems to go on in slow motion


Incase you are interested you can listen to the original demo version of this song >>>Here<<<

Seems like it might be an Apple issue, Bud - Musicoin works fine on Windows.
Nice relaxed vibe to the song, Samuel- I like the lyrics, your strong vocals... and the Uke!
Hope this does well as a fundraiser for the cause.

Yep Joanne has confirmed other Apple folks have had issues. I have the most recent iMac, OS and Browser. If Musicoin doesn't support the Apple world they're in for a rough ride.

Worked fine on my Mac. The album popped out, and didn't play initially. All I had to do was click on the Play Song button, and it played.

Nice relaxing listen to a well written song. Good job on this!

Nice work on this one, Samuel smile I like how chill it is. I'm definitely getting some Hawaii vibes here. It's like cotton candy on the ear, how smooth and sweet this sounds! Really strong vocals, and I love the lyrics you chose here.

Great job, and thanks for sharing!

Thanks everyone. Like Steve said sometimes on the musicoin site you have to press play at the bottom of the screen. I have that issue sometimes on my android phone. The site is pretty new and will probably get better over time but the concept is nice.

As for the song I like how it turned out. I may use it on an album of my own in the future as well.
