Finished my newest snog! It's my first try at a dance song and it's EXTREMELY successful. It would be mucho appreciadado [haha failspanish] if you checked it out HERE: Midnight Sun
I had the melody and progression laid out for a couple weeks, which were the weeks before I came close to finishing Rising Tide. I figured then it was a good start, and there were a lot of things that were going on to inspire the rest of it. School was starting and I was making new friends and seeing old ones and having one hell of a good time in sophomore year, and I had just finished marching band camp and that was actually an insane amount of fun. And all those emotions played a big part in making this song. Ultimately, it was ridiculously fun to make, despite me sitting down and rigorously composing line after line, day by day, every day.
I'm especially proud of the ending on this one. It's just the right mix of cool, calm, and emotional. Which is extremely emotional, pretty cool, and very calm[ing]. But the rest of the song makes you want to jump out of your seat and start breakdancing; 198 BPM can do that to you.
