I’m Looking Down


Recommended Posts

This is a popish sort of tune I made up in Sonar 8.5. I know, I know, it would have fit in back in the late 60’s or early 70’s. But that’s the pop music I love. I’m interested to hear opinions on composition, arrangement, melody, and how everything comes through in the mix. It badly needs a vocal. I have the lyrics written, I just don’t have a singer. I tried to get that awesome bari sax sound on The Beatles “Savoy Truffle”, it’s no where close, but it’s the best I could do with the sample libraries I have.

First person to say “It needs more cowbell” wins a brand new shiny car.

EDIT: There are two mp3's, one is without the horns and synths just so the melody is clearer. That, and I'm not really too thrilled with my horn arrangement.

Luis Hernandez, Tonskald, and Sepharite,

Wow! Thanks you guys. I don't like today's popular music either. All the great timeless music from Bach to The Beatles seems lost to an entire generation.

I miss simple melodies. Ahhh, the good old days indeed!

Thanks again.  :)
