It's Possible

Post by othentic » Thu Jul 31, 2008 4:02 pm

Hey guys,It's the first song I'm posting here but don't be gentle and tell it how it is I know I'm not going to win any contest with the lyrics but I'd love to hear your comments about the commercial appeal of the song and the hook.Would fit well in an Apple ad!http://www.othentic.com/things/othentic ... e6.mp3Many thanks!!Ben

WOW dude. The production on this is very tight. Great feel on the track. I love the "hawkings-styled" male/female voicing. The synth is awesome, and the drums are quite tight. I would experiment with dropping the distortion on the core hook (ie, the "Oh, stand by your side......') THis might be a matter of taste this, but this bends my hears a bit. I would love to hear the harmonies without the noise on them. Don't get me wrong, they fit the "machine" theme and the spoken verses, but I think they would break through better with the distortion backed down. AWESOME TRACK!

wow!i agree that the sung lyrics are bit hard to understand, maybe either try boosting the levels a tad or soften the effect a bit. other than that ---- i think it's a very clever song idea and very professionally executed. great sound, i'm soooo impressed! definitely has tons of market potential, i really love how some moments really explode. i too am an instant fan! -juliet

Ben,This is really great stuff! I think you're going to do really well with Taxi if the rest of your material is as competent as this one. Great writing and production!!Cameronp.s. What are you using for your piano? Sounds great!!
