Howling On The Moon

I made an instrumental song 4 years ago, it was called Even Mutual Autumn Eve, a palindrome title. Unfortunately, I couldn't make palindrome lyrics for it, but I thought the song had such a nice melody that it required something special. And then, tongue in cheek or tooth on throat, I came up with this silly werewolf thematic story, sorry about it, hopefully it fits the outdoors/campfire mood of the song. Luckily I managed to lure my friend to howl the wolf part smile

Lyrics:

Sunset, time to bite
magic made tonight
dancing with the lamb
to let her find out what I am.

Bushland, flesh is young
her taste still on my tongue
fire burning, night returning
I know that soon
she'll be howling on the Moon.

The instincts don't rehearse
bound to pass the curse
spirits kiss the belle
initiation of the spell.

C2

Treasure the wild within
now when we are akin
silver bullets kill
survival rules your will.

C3

This is very cool and creepy at the same time... conquered images of a new wave horror film... I love it... even without the palindrome...

Janne,

Love the melody of this melancholy song! The instrument choices in this are good ones! The double tracked vocal sections are very effective and the harp really sets the mood for this!

I think you did an excellent job on this!

Thanks, Torrey

Very cool song Janne, Super vocal and harmony processing. Just loved the mix. The harp on the right was a perfect choice, I think this one of my favorite songs of yours. Well done...

The sad waltz is a lovely sound, and the subject is pretty unique. The instruments sound great.

As everyone else said, the doubled vocals fit here really nicely.

Note to self - do something in a minor key, this is very cool. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

That tiny harmonica never sounded more ominous. Great instrument choices, great topic to write about. Gave me the heebee jeebies. Good work!

Strong images are conjured as well as amusing ones...aongst the gore I saw a female werewolf in a NASA suit kicking lunar dust while howling:
“That’s ahwooooahn small step for wooohman, and ahwooooahn giant leap for wolfkind.”
Cool music and arrangement.


Cheers

Excellent track. The instruments and vocals combine well for a haunting effect.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

"Even Mutual Autumn Eve" is a very unusual palindrome, and this is a very unusual song, Janne. Love it, man! Yes, a song to scare around a campfire in the middle of the forest. A very haunting melody, and you illustrate it magically with music. The harmonica seems to be warning us to stay in our blankets and those haunting voices in the background make us shiver there.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks Torrey for your heartwarming feedback smile I'm glad you liked the melancholy mood, the RT harp really works with it. I thought that the vocal doubling would make somebody think of a pack of werewolves, but good to hear that it is effective.

"The instincts don't rehearse

A most cool write and our favorite line is the first of this verse.

We love the melody and the band is perfect with the piano and harmonica as standouts. Your vocals and your friend's howls fit just right too!

Most enjoyable Janne!

Janne, if I have nightmares tonight I'm gonna sue you grin

Excellent song about werewolfs! Great lyrics and vocal, fantastic backing tracks, and a great mix.

This was a howling success!

Loved it.
