Hello everyone.
This song is a joint project with my friend Halya from Ukraine.
The song is about the sad everyday life of most people.
And about the fact that everyone wishes for happiness but does not realize it.
Because happiness is not something you can own.
You have to recognize it and feel it.

Listen to HAPPINESS

The song is played entirely by BiaB 2021.
Only the vocals have been additionally recorded.
The english is definitely not the best,
but it is much easier to write a usable song in english than in german ;-)

We hope you like the song.
BiaB is definitely the most extraordinary program I have ever used.
see you soon
Andi ;-)


HAPPINESS

We wake up in the morning
It’s always time to work
No breakfast on the table, but worries

This is how the years go by
Is this the sense of life
We will change it, must hurry

Look around you
maybe you feel the same
it’s up to you

Happiness
it’s always on our side
but we don’t have the time
2nd+3rd (and we have to take the time)
to catch these moments of life

Happiness
is something all we want
but when we see it
we can pass it on

Now we sit together
Joy is in our eyes
cause we have learned to look

We’re there for each other
to give us all the chance
to say I’ve understood

I really enjoyed the snappy 90s "Roxette" feel and the liquid-y, accented (to an American) vocals. I did find the chorus less satisfying, reaching out in a different direction with less success.

But everything comes together with "let's go!" =8^)

Thank you Greg.
I save the individual tracks from Biab into my TASCAM DP-32SD and mix it together with my vocals and possibly other instruments. Then I have it mastered at LANDR.com. Viele Grüße

M.
liked the start and the buildup.
just an idea maybe dial back drum level a tad.
liked that 'lets go'.

i like the fact you employ the trick of vocal doubles.

interesting song.
best to you.

Dear Mr. Melzner...

Starting off a song with such a rockin' beat made it absolutely irresistible to my ears smile. Also, I like the way the lyrics struck a balance between the optimistic expectation of being happy with the more realistic consideration of how we could achieve that desirable state of existence.

Your vocal performance was energetic and affirming.

The entire production is excellent.

Great write, vocal performance, arrangement and mix.

Outstanding use of RTs and RD.

We are big fans of open/airy mixes with lots of dynamics and this is a great example. Every track has its place on the soundstage.

Well done!

J&B

Hello bluage
thank you very much for this great feedback
I think it is really nice that you can understand the meaning of the text so well
I don't have anyone to check my texts
i write them with a dictionary and have them checked with the online translator ;-)
but I can imagine that you as a native speaker will find some passages unfamiliar
maybe sometimes the meaning of the text is completely lost
but i have to say that i can't write song lyrics in my german native language at all....
so I prefer to stay with this method
many love greetings
andi ;-)

Dear 'Project M'...

Rest assured that your written communication skills are just fine, as far as I'm concerned, even across different languages. I had no problem whatsoever understanding the subtext of your interesting lyrics.

Sincerely,

'bluage'
