OPEN MIC WEEK 39 / @happy2b / First entry /Original Song written for openmic week 39 titled -- "Wanted"

3년 전

Lyrics:

I always fight
the rhythm of the night
it never wanna let me go.

Its imposible to keep
the present company
of my broken heart and soul

So I take a ride
on the open tide
night after night

Its imposible to keep
my present company
its imposible to sleep
its imposible to be yah

The demons say
its time to play
and turn their little heads to war

All man kind
put em in a line
cause all they ever want is more

I'm here to say
Not all of us are born that way

Its imposible to keep
the light we seek
from dimming in the deep
its imposible
to see me....cause were

Were wanted, Wanted for MURDER
The murder, of all my love
Were wanted, Wanted for MURDER
The murder, of all my love

Tinsel shines,
buy another kind
hang on the door
put it on your shrine

Bottle up the fear
Sell another cure
take another shot
have another beer

boom shot life
aint got no care
sell your soul
so theres nothing to be ware of

The demons say
were better off to die that way

Its imposible to keep
the light we seek
from dimming in the deep
its imposible
to see yah...cause were

Were wanted, Wanted for MURDER
The murder, of all my love
Were wanted, Wanted for MURDER
the murder of al the love.

Ok so there it is...my first open mic entry. This is for open mic 39. Im exited to be inspired to write again. Its been awhile for me. I am struggling between posting what this song means to me or not. A part of me wants to see what you guys think about it without possibly jading any perceptions by revealing my own. Another part of me wants to explain where this song is coming from for me and what it means to me. I think I'll just post it and see if anyone out there wants me to share what it means to me. Hell, (self conscious chuckle as I clear my throat) Im so new here, there is a good chance no one will really see this anyway (long silence with one lone cricket that introduces itself) ...non the less...I am still super exited to be inspired. Inspiration--in my experience-- has always been a beautiful lover that comes and goes as she pleases. There is nothing more delicious in my world than inspiration. This serves better as my introduction than my "introduce yourself' posts. Nothing is more me than the music that comes through. Thanks for listening.

I sure would like to hear what you guys think. Thanks again.

reallly really really love this your voice reminds me of the lead singer of crash test dummies... this was awesome. i would love to sing with your voice im taken up. the song is fantastic love love love love

·

SWEET!!! I am honored by your reaction. It always feels a bit vulnerable to share art that comes through me. I know not everyone will like it but it sure does feel good when someone does!!!

·

Ya...me too...they seem to be attracted to me as well. People are always giving them away for one reason or another and they find a home with me on a regular basis. I thought this was normal till friends of mine pointed out they never heard of a piano being given away. We got some kinda connection--piano's n me.


Hii @happy2b, Nice to Meet U

Right on srmorales97.... it feels good to get such positive feedback...THANKS :)

Welcome to STEEM!

·

Thank you!

Great read! I just upvoted you. Please do the same and follow

·

Thank you anziz1993. I don't follow just because, but I did look at your blogs and found them interesting...so...I am following!!! Glad to meet you. Thanks again for the support.

·
·

ohhh thank you very match

Awesome performance!

·

Thank you yakuza!!! Thanks for saying so!!!!

·
·

Yakuza, love it xD! Your voice is awesome, piano is awesome, and the video is also awesome, looking out for more from you!

·
·
·

SWEET! I just checked you out... I dig your last blog "sell steem for profit not loss...duh! Upvoted and following. It cool to meet you. Oh and thanks for the re-steem, that is awesome!!!

·
·
·
·

Sweet, you have a great future here, keep it up!

·
·
·

lol....auto correct took it there!!!

Holy shit, I really enjoyed that! The melody of both the piano and the vocals were really unique, and you have a great voice, so gruff! Awesome. I actually went to add your youtube video to a playlist of my faves but it gave me a warning that the video was unlisted and to be careful with sharing? I've never seen that before :/

Keep posting dude, you obviously have a musical soul, you have to let it all out

·

RIGHT ON!!!! Im so glad that you like it!!!! As far as the youtube...I have never used that for anything other than watching other peoples content. I took a fellow steemians advice and listed the vid as unlisted so that it would promote people to have to view it on steemit. Its my way of helping to promote steemit use. Can you view it anyway on youtube? I suppose with the link yes? I had to use you tube first just to get the video onto steemit.

·
·

Yes anyone with the link here can click through and watch it on youtube!

·
·
·

It would be good if you could load video straight to steemit. I know nothing of programing computers , and servers and the like so its probably a million times harder and/or more expensive to do than to think of.

·
·
·
·

That would be sweet but I think that means they would have to host it all, expensive! My computer knowledge on that kind of stuff is pretty slim too.

Thanks for playing Steemit Open Mic

·

Thanks for hosting! Awesome idea!! Im happy to be part of it.

Wow, a good looking Tom Waits in a fisheyes bubble of awesomness. AMAZING!!! This is exactly why I am on Steemit. Your voice is great, more please.

·

Ha ha hey!!!! Tom always told me he was glad he was the good lookin one. Thanks for the awesome reply!!! I appreciate it!!!

Holy Shit, this is good.. I think I get what you're saying here, but I can't seem to elaborate, but I know that I relate! I could hear this again and again, it's a fucking strong song... Good job, it's very memorable.

·

Sweet!!! I was afraid that maybe you had listened a couple days ago, not really liked it and didn't want to comment. Even if you hadn't liked it, i was and am still very interested in your opinion. As I stated before, I really like your work. When I meet fellow musicians...true musicians not technicians...those that speak with their heart and soul--like yourself--I feel like Im meeting my brothers and sisters of the world. I am glad you dig this. It comes through my heart...from where...I have no clue!!!!

·
·

Haha, no it's just I don't have adequate internet at the house I'm living in to stream any music, so I have to listen when I'm out and about! It took me a few days but I got here in the end..! Thanks so much though man that means a lot to me, and I know you're singing with your heart too because it comes across with such meaning. I can't wait to see more of you!

Great song. I like the rhythm, and have a couple of interpretations of the lyrics.

'Nothing is more me than the music that comes through.'

I totally agree with that too!

·

Hey thanks for the shout out!!! What an awesome musicians community here!!!! You mention having a couple of interpretations of the lyrics.....you have me curious.....what are they?

·
·

It's great isn't it!

I guess my main thought was the internal fight against the dark side of human nature that most of us have to some (though differing) extents, and the guilt of starting to succumb in the face of a world that seems to embrace it.

I think that most good songs mean different things to different people though, so wouldn't be surprised if that's a long way from what it means to you!

·
·
·

Thats what I love about it... one song can mean so many different things to so many different people. Especially if there are no words!!!! Anyway...that is not far off at all...in fact that is a big part of what I was expressing. I am very happy that you got that....that is awesome.

Very nice! It really kept my attention the whole time. I really like seeing the lyrics too. If you want some constructive thoughts, maybe when you sing the murder chorus you make the piano a bit more active too to support what you're singing (or add more instruments)? Just an idea - it's really good as it is. ;)

·

Yes!!! I agree!!!! In fact...I just wrote this for entering into open mic 39. Concequently you are listening to the foundation of the song. No energy or time put into voicing yet. Also, I am terrible at playing and singing at the same time. I always have to dumb down my playing just to be able to do it at all. I have much less practice at singing and playing than just playing. Maybe Ill perform a Dubussy or Chopin piece on my Walter one day so that you can see that I can actually play the piano...not something so evident by watching this. This piece is all heart, mostly expressed through the vocals. It is at its birth stage. I intend to produce it in and play around with the genre a bit. I like to produce songs I write in several different genres just to see how the same tune can change. Thanks for taking a listen and super thanks for the great suggestions. This song does need better voicing and structure overall...especially around the chorus.

·
·

I would love to hear your classical playing! When I play and sing, I basically have to have one or both really memorized so I can do it in my sleep and then I have some mental energy left to focus on one of them ;)

Wow. You're really good. Kinda reminds me of Tom Waites! Great voice and expressive emotional delivery. Great song! Original too! Good luck in the openmic comp. Thanks for sharing.

·

Thanks a lot cupid! I must admit that I love Tom Waites...Seems I am influenced quite a bit. But as Tom Waites would say...(Ya, thanks...I used to baby sit Tom when he was a kid...real pain in the ass!! But his mom was a cutie. )

Sweet...I just checked you out/upvoted/commented on your intro. I like the production thus far and look forward to hearing the master. As I said on your blog, there is an awesome musicians community growing here. Check out Clint Jr. for one--my personal favorite singer/songwriter here...and there are many more that are worth listening to and following !!! like...YOU for instance!!!!! Thanks again for the positive feedback!!! Please, even if you don't like a song that I post...I am very interested in your honest feedback!!! I feel like I have to make a point of saying this...it seems to me that this very cool idea of Steemit that promotes profits to its users might possibly lean people to be artificial...for the sake of winning popularity thus followers. On the other hand...a real and solid yet tactful connection is also a very strong wind blowing across this cyberspace.That is what I am interested in. Honest connections with like minded/spirited people that can constructively come together to inspire, learn, grow, and express!!!! I am happy2b seeing you become part of the mix.

Really nice perform, so much talent! I follow! I posted my first song if you want to check it !
