June 07, 2019 User Showcase Song - To Catch a Magpie

Magpies, being of the crafty crow family, are featured in folklore in many cultures representing everything from good luck to disaster. I grew up learning they are accomplished thieves with an eye for bright and pretty things left unattended.
The repeating nursery rhyme is well known in the UK.

June 03, 2019 User Showcase Song - Distant Echoes

If you can not tolerate slightly depressing song, I suggest moving to the the next post.

Inspired by a recent song by Ray & Torrey, I decided to write a song long due.
...Once I met a man from former Soviet republic. From our casual
conversation, I understood that he was collaborating with Nazi
during WWII. It was not what he said...but what he didn't say that made me
quite uncomfortable. For a long time, this subject had hunted me, so
finally I was able to express it musically/verbally. Critique is always welcomed. Thank you for listening!

366: Bass Electric
686: Organ
RealDrums: CountryEven16
1004: Guitar, 12 string
2495: Pino Electric
2890: Accordion
3242: Vihuela

parts of Hitler/Stalin speeches.
Recorded and mixed in Cakewalk.
