Title: One More Time

Link: One More Time

Again, a simple song with simple chords (albeit with a nice chord progression) with simple lyrics.
But hey, I'm writing pop rock, not prog rock where I'd have to change the key and time every two bars and quote Nietzsche or Einstein or both.
Just a simple love song you may or may not enjoy.

Some background information:
  • the number of RealTracks that work properly in 3/4 is shockingly small.
    If anyone knows of EBow-like guitars, I'd be happy to hear which ones are usable in 3/4.
  • Natalie couldn't lift the higher parts of the vocals, so her little sister Solaria took over this task
  • the YouTube thumbnail is the first preview of the full band. The video itself is just a simple lyrics-video.

Special thanks (again) to Marty for proofreading the lyrics and some free English lessons smile

Some technical information:
Style: _RKWALTZ.STY

The band:
Drums: NashvilleWaltzSw
Bass: 1189 (re-amped)
Guitars: (some re-amped)
1181
854
3095
4150
Piano: 3091
Screaming guitar: yours truly

Vocals: Solaria with BG vocals from Natalie and Cong.

You can find the lyrics in the next post.

Title: One More Time

Verse 1:
I thought I had it all
but I was wrong, so wrong.
Wish I could start all over again
and do everything right,
just right.

Chorus 1:
One more time
gimme one more day
I swear I'll do everything right.
One more time
gimme one more day
I swear I'll do everything right.

Bridge;
I'm crying, I'm dying,
I wake up and my dream is gone.
I was smiling, now I'm crying
where did I go wrong?

Chorus 2:
One more time
gimme one more day
I swear I'll do everything right
One more time
gimme one more day
I swear I'll do everything right.

Verse 3:
I thought I had it all,
but I was wrong, so wrong.
I was full of love
but it's gone and I'm alone,
so alone
alone

Chorus 3:
One more time
gimme one more day
I swear I'll do everything right
One more time
gimme one more day
I hope I'll do everything right
just right

Outro:
Just give me one more night
one more day

Brian...I don't know how long it takes you to do the production on one of these AI songs but they are so cool...and your use of BiaB and plus your own playing is top-notch...I really enjoyed this...my only nit with the whole thing is the diction of the girls...it's perfect and that's not human (duh!) but putting aside those perfect girls I enjoy your songs so much and this is no exception!

Hi Brian,

That is a very cool song and a great production with lots of nice light and shade.

Best Regards

Thanks firesong for listening and your feedback. Much appreciated!

I've actually never calculated how long it takes me to complete a song, so let's start with this one:
looking at the timestamps of the audio files, the song took about 7 days, it started with the first chord progression in BIAB on 03/21 and the final mix was completed on 03/27.
I spend about 2 hours a day on music (give or take, it depends on my family), so this song took about 14 hours from start to finish.

Sometimes it goes faster (especially when I start with older material), sometimes it goes slower, many songs are abandoned after a few days because I can't get them to work.
I usually spend most of the time on the lyrics and melody and the least time on the harmonies and mixing, I'm pretty quick there. All my songs are unmastered.

The videos usually needed about the same amount of time, but I decided to make simpler videos to have more time to write the music. I'm (kinda) a musician, not a director smile
This video took me about 4 hours to make (plus the time my PC rendered the video during the night).

Light and shadow mean contrast. Good!
That's what I'm trying to improve with each song.

Thanks for listening and your positive feedback, Nigel.
Much appreciated!

The song is great and the synth vox has a vulnerable quality which suits the song.
Well done.

It's really awesomely cool that you could have AI singing this song
I really thought it was a real person singing and I was about to compliment you on the vocals. Lol
Great job

B.D.,
Very good production. A bit of Radiohead flavor (which is a good thing), Those robo girls sing very well. Clear mix & easy listen. Thank you for sharing.

Nicely done. I always get an ABBA vibe when I listen to your stuff.
Good job.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Wow, another top level pop song, your writing gets better all the time. Very good melody and the chorus is really strong. I like the strong contrast between the verse and the chorus, excellent use of dynamics. Great selection of instruments and their introduction at the right times. And then the vocals... doesn't sound like Solaria is singing, but like your trademark vocalist, very good work and those backing vocals support perfectly, what is your harmony secret?

I was thinking of Pink when listening to this song, she has similar power ballads. I don't know whether Solaria could be pushed even further to reach Pink like powerful interpretation. Maybe the AI vocalists will have personality sliders one day, so that you could really create unimaginable dynamical changes. And based on Chat GPT development, that day may be here quite soon, bit scary smile

Thanks Vic for your nice feedback.
Solaria does indeed have something that Natalie does not, especially in the higher registers.

That's my goal!

Good work.
The synth voices are terrific...the long in draw of breath before the 1st syllable is a very clever ploy.
Buy a Behringer Sustainer - it's a knock off eBow and reasonably cheap.


Cheers

A very, very impressing song, Brian!
The vocals are so beautiful...
You easily can forget they are artificial. I hear the breathing between the words. Wonderful.
I think I have to take lessons from you how to achieve this.
And let me not forget to mention the wonderful composition itself. It's great.
I thought 'Silent cry' was your best, but you keep making these wonderful songs.
I love to listen to them,

Hans
