time flies (farewell)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[lyrics]
Totemo itai,
Oh my
**
Time flies,
and another f***ing year dies -
what a f***ing year gone by
**
I cried;
Anybody could
and everybody should
about the year gone by
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
just one more haiku,
one more little thing to do;
then, my friend, we're through
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Friends, it's been a good one. Having WeeklyBeats around made an otherwise demoralizing and frightening year survivable. Thanks for your ears, your insights, and your music! 
**
Keeping my fingers crossed I'll get the chance to come back in 2022. Until then, stay safe, take care, and have the best of luck in the new year. smile

What a cool track. I like how you treat the vocals in this track. Nice choir pack as well, what did you use to make it? Nice trippy hypnotic track.

I hope you come back in 2022, man! Your tracks have always been a treat, and have shined a bright light on an otherwise dim year.

Much appreciated! The choral backdrop was a combo of Logic's stock chamber choir and Cinesamples' Voices of War VST for a bit of an earthier tone. I also wound up using a soprano patch from VOXOS Epic Choirs to reinforce the melody at one point. Glad to hear they turned out okay together!

Thanks so much - that means a ton to hear! If I'm still on the planet and in the game, I'll definitely be back. smile Your tracks have been a pleasure to listen to: they're often lush and mesmerizing. So likewise, thanks for shining a light in a dark year!

Amazing tune and mood. I did not hear the swears at first, this makes it even better. smile

Super uplifting atmosphere in this one.  Like I'm soaring through clouds.  It reminds me of M83 meets Moby smile  Especially enjoy those choral vocals.  Calming  outro as well.  Nice work!

I'm going to miss that peaceful sound you can so strongly bring, though I suppose I can relisten to your stuff from this year. Thanks for making 2020 not that bad. Happy New Year.

Amaaaazing piano. you absolutely nailed the atmosphere. Once again, it's been lovely listening to your work this year. Thanks a lot for all your comments and kind words, and I hope you do make it for 2022 heart

Thanks! Most of my tracks tend to lack lyrics (much less expletives), so I hope they didn't come off too strong here.

What a compliment - thank you! Also thanks for pointing me in the direction of M83 - liking what I'm hearing so far. Take care!

Likewise! Your tracks and your feedback are always a pleasure, and they went a long way toward making the past year more bearable. smile Take care in the new year!

That means a lot to hear - though truth be told, your piano tracks put mine to shame easily! big_smile It's been great to hear so much of your work again this year too. Hope to see you in 2022 as well. Have a restorative 2021 in the meantime!
