I was aiming to compose a pop song but it ended up feeling more like a movie theme. I layered a good amount of synths to get the sounds I wanted, a lot of trial and error! From the start I knew I wanted to include a Korg M1 bassline and the Roland D-50 calliope, so I'm happy to report they both made the cut smile Enjoy and thanks for listening!

You had me at "layered a good amount of synths". A tasty slathering! I think it has a strong pop sound. If it was a movie theme, it definitely stars Eddie Murphy! Very cool as always!

Perfect 80s/movie vibes: I can smell the "pop"corn. Nice drumming as well.

Thanks Jim! I found a pretty sweet LinnDrum rack for ableton just the week before, it was fun and inspiring to use!

Done deal, we'll get a Max Headroom cameo for good measure!

Love the 80s feel and the sound of the M1 bass just ties everything together and drives the track.  Excellent drums and gotta love that calliope too!  Nice work!

It's 80's pop, which these days is basically movie music.

Great composition.
