FLIES, FLOWERS AND APES

I'm counting the stars Their number is beyond imagination So why, why, why should I even try Falling from the stars...

I walk on the stage, the music is loud my breath is the wind and my soul is the sky I'm ready to fight The roar of the crowd, their chant is my name the dart in my hand feels like fire and storm I'm ready to win Silverback

A fine time you picked to let me down A fine time to back out of the deal A fine time you picked to let me know, a fine time... Couldn't you tell me before? Couldn't you warn me somehow? Forget my name, I'll forget yours I will forget your name somehow.
6.
The fly flies around and keeps its distance You're watching it fly and secretly you wish you had those wings to fly, to fly away from here and finally land where there is no pain For no one owns the fly and nothing hurts it but everything sometimes seems to hurt you You ought to be like flies, you wanna find your place in the sky The fly flies around and keeps its distance You're watching it fly and secretly you wish you had those wings to fly, to fly away from here and finally land where there is no pain For everything sometimes seems to hurt you but this might be the time to make it stop You ought to be like flies, you wanna find your place in the sky

I used to hope mankind could change in time but now I know like broken flowers we will fall I used to think mankind could save itself in time but now I know like broken flowers we will fall

about

JUST MUSIC series - vol 30

genre: vocal / Italo disco / 80's

(please refer to this page for notes about this series macofbionight.bandcamp.com/track/introduction-to-the-just-music-series )

This album is in 80's/Italo Disco style, which means you will find on it all the cliches of this genre, like Simmons drums, FM bells, scratch, stuttering samplers, orchestra hits, bad singing. Singing? Yes, I decided to sing on this one.
So I can sing, right? Nope, I couldn't hit a note right to save my life, and my voice is terrible.
But I used those electronic tricks they use today to to get the notes in tune, right? Wrong, I left my bad singing exactly the way I recorded it.
OK, but at least I have professional gear to record vocals so they will sound fine, right? Wrong again, all I have is a ridiculously cheap usb microphone that turned mixing the vocal tracks into a hellish experience.
So why this album? Because I had an awful lot of fun recording it, and that is the spirit I ask you to listen in: just relax and have fun (even a few laughs, if you want).
The world is full of masterpieces, you can always listen to those later.
Enjoy!

Mac of BIOnighT Italy

I was one half of BIOnighT (a Berlin School duo that split in 2011) for twelve years. I've always recorded my own stuff, though, lots of it and in no one genre. So make sure to check out all of my albums on Bandcamp, at least one is bound to belong in a genre you like!
You can also find plenty more on my website. My music is also available for licensing, just contact me macnight@inwind.it
