You Hate Me, Don't You

I'm smack dab in the middle of the Tomorrow People cover monster, and am starting to wonder if TC hates me. The melodies I'm tying together are so different that it's really tough to make it all mesh without changing key. Somewhere out there, you are laughing at me. And I will prevail. Oh yes, I shall prevail.

That Bass Sounds Familiar

I started composing a new song this week, beginning with a funky bass line. I added drums, and then began riffing off of this with a nice lead synth. Ten minutes into my jam session, I began to think I'd heard that bass line before. Sure enough, it was almost exactly the same as another song I'd written in the last year! Inspiration fail. It happens sometimes. After all, whose songs don't sound at least a bit like their others? I won't bother to work on this song any longer, but at least I squeezed a fun jam session out of it.

Tomorrow (or the next day) People

Thanks to TC over at Subject: Cinema, I have a new musical challenge- a cover version of a 70s tune, mixed with elements from about eight other songs, all of which will be associated with The Tomorrow People. At this point you're trying to hurt me, aren't you, TC? I'm not quite sure how I'm going to tackle this one, but it should be interesting.

One Last Change

I've decided to scrap the free file hosting mumbo jumbo, and simply post new tunes via our Cavebabble Podcast hosting. This way, I won't have access to files go down, and kill the embedded player. If you're interested in listening to some tunes, click on the links in the list to the left. They play like magic. Promise.
