Hi Folks.
Sorry had not been around for some time, life happened.  Seems it released it's jaws a little for now.  Will have to catch up on many tunes I have missed.  Here is my December tune and the last for outgoing year. It is in a way a tribute to my school friend, who showed me that even most boring things can be looked at a different perspective. The last part of the song was actually an evacuation instruction in NY subway in early 1990s. We improvised on that subject, but it was never made into a tune. Constructive critique is always welcomed! Thank you for tuning in!
Misha.


Commuter


Lyrics:
There are pilots, there are plumbers, there are waiters
There are humans that are walking calculators
Some people are are gentle as lamb, some vicious as mountain lions
Some people riding a rainbow, while others are color blind

Life is a fast train, I am commuter
picking out of the window - sky shades of pewter
Lonely stations flashing their signs...

There are magicians who performing for the crowds
men go inside a burning house without doubts
There are children soldiers,
High rollers
Witch hunters
Secret masonic orders
Cliff jumpers

Love is a fast train, I am a rider
destiny is flirting through glass divider
lonely stations are flashing their signs...

Love is a fast train, I am a rider
Destiny is laughing though glass divider
Lonely stations are flashing their signs...

Listen for instructions from the crew,
Do not pull this emergency break
Remain inside a train
Subway tracks are dangerous,
Exit only when directed!

Misha,

I always end up listening to your music several times - because it is impossible to take in its many nuances in a single listen.
I listen once to try to take it in.
I listen again to hear your great use of the guitars.
I listen again to read along with the lyrics. You write in such a vivid manner. Words that make the mind dance.
I listen again to hear all the "extras" that you add.

Cerebral. On many levels.
Fascinating.

Loved the opening guitars.

really cool vocals.

There is a high-EQ-ness that sounds great at low levels - the entire production comes through clearly - but at full volume it is "a bit much" for my ears.

Your musical genius is on full display here.

Cool, cool, cool.

Hi Misha ...

What a song! You chose the perfect tracks for this one ... as you usually do. I agree with all that Floyd said. What he said that resonated with me the most was that you make the brain dance to your words. For a person who's native language is not English, you have a great command of the the usage of English vocabulary. And the other thing is the original creativity of your music. The backing tracks and their usage in this song is just so good! That was terrific listen!

Hope you and yours have a fabulous 2021.

Alan

Very well done. This is going to read strange but it's meant as a compliment; the song sounds just like the lyrics read. Everything meshes together.

"Life is a fast train, I am commuter/ picking out of the window - sky shades of pewter" Absolute fabulous. I could sing those lines over and over.

Another Misha masterpiece. Your vocal delivery/rhythm is mesmerizing--like a snake charmer--I can see the cobra swaying.

Scott,
Too funny! You know I was disappointed. Fairly recently I found out that snakes don't have ears as "ears" and can only "hear" very low frequencies. It is a motion of the whistle that gets them dancing. Pure fraud smile Thank you for your warm comments and support!

Misha, you are soo creative! Love how you take simple, everyday moments/activities and weave them into very interesting tapestries of music and lyric. And your performance is always interesting as well--I'd be interested to learn your vox processing strategy and steps. I thought that your line "I am a rider..destiny is flirting through glass divider" is great! As others have said, your choice of style and components is a perfect match for your concept. I've spent a lot of time riding the NYC subways, and you definitely got that "completely lonely in a mass of people--watching a weird world pass by" feeling. I really appreciate your work and it always gives me new ideas!

Absolutely outstanding, Misha. Love how you develop your songs. The lyrics are always flawless and really define the song. The music you make dresses the lyrics up in their finest. Each and every instrument adds that perfect touch, and you bring out all of those nuances to include a new meaning in Mastering.


Enjoy whatever happens!

...poo,that was a close shave: On the second last day of this otherwise disgusting year I fanally revealed that long-kept secret: You MUST be Michail Dylanow, Bob's younger stepbrother who had been banned because 'one poetical genious in our family is absolutely enough'.

Misha, I'm still far from being able to fully understand those lyrics (well, when even Floyd needed more goes.. ), but that was the same with Subterranean Homesick Blues.

It's not the first time one of your songs knocks me out completely, but this one is really something special. The backing track is so unbelievably good that at first I had thought you might be Donald Fegan's lost stepbrother. Well, I could also imagine that you're a multiple personality guy.

Now I'm gonna switch off my phone and have some more listens.

Seriously: Hats off - that was just awesome.

Take good care and stay safe,

Stefan

Infectious groove and great lyrics. My favorite line was "Some people riding a rainbow, while others are color blind." Great work, keep it up!

Tano,
Thank you for your generous feedback. Ohh, if you done your share of NYC subway time then you are ordained. My vox chain is fairly simple: Reverb+EQ. In very rare instances, mostly for FX: Distortion, Delay. But a condenser mic is actually what I think matters the most. I did discover one cool plugin recently that balances dynamics by Melda. I am still exploring it. I think that will be my to go "finalizer".

Marty,
Thank you for listening and your supportive feedback! I like that: "Enjoy whatever happens!'

Stefan,
Are you aiming at schizophrenic symptoms that I might involuntary exhibited?
"I'm still far from being able to fully understand those lyrics" Me too smile
Thank you for your fun and warm feedback, that could be made into a tune by itself. Best regards to you and Maha!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
