We Fly – I produced this demo song in Jan 2021. This song is a slow, nostalgic ballad song about someone who broke up with a lover but still keeps dreaming about their past romantic love affairs. In the song, a person dreams about flying with an ex while sleeping. They both have moved on with their life, but the other person still ruminates about their failed relationship.
I have been thinking of writing a slow ballad song ever since I found these lyrics online. Alex Romano, a driver who enjoys writing poems to express his feelings, wrote the lyrics originally. These lyrics were in the form of a poem before I made a bit of adjustment to give it a typical song structure like verse, chorus, bridge. I also added some words that I used in the second verse.
Actually, I was supposed to produce this song in 2020. However, because of the pandemic (Covid-19), It took me about a year to restart producing music as I completely stopped making music for several months due to Covid. Though I was not in the right frame of mind to make music during the pandemic, I was still humming this song in my head now and then for about a year. Finally, I got the courage to produce it.
Writing the melody of the song has been quite challenging because of its structure and melodic variations. I wanted to use all my vocal ranges in this song, starting from lower registration to head voice. Figuring out the piano chords to the melody was time-consuming. I played most of the instruments in this song using a midi-keyboard. Also, I added the saxophone and other loops from GarageBand music collections to give this song a pleasant sound.
This song was produced at home using a laptop, a midi keyboard, a simple microphone and simple music software, GarageBand. The song is still at a demo stage without proper production. I will, of course, rerecord the song in a professional studio when the time is right.
This song has been reviewed on Drooble and has personal recommendations and feedback from 10 musicians, whose average score for this song is 7.8 out of 10. Most musicians do want to hear the track again. While listening to it, 7 of them feel engaged during the whole time. This song made most of the musicians feel happy. Based on the results of 10 reviews, We Fly does need more polishing before it’s ready for promotion to a bigger audience.
