I'm off to a slow start this year. That is to say, slow to the first song party and with a slow tune written in an exhausted state.
Having just moved house for the first time in 6 years, I've had to deal with culling loads of stuff, of which I have lots. As a self confessed hoarder, I still find it difficult to let go of things and cease to accumulate more objects, particularly when I've made a business/career out of it...
It can come at a cost if I allow it to take up all of my time and energy, so this year I'm hoping to change some bad habits.
Constructive criticism/advice on mixing and hoarding tendencies welcomed.
Musically, I actually started this with a tribal beat sample from Francis Bebey... mixed with a classical piano sample. But the beat got in the way and the song took on more of a ballad, so I tried parring it back. Still probably added a few too many stringed instruments!
It's been a while,
since I made you smile.
I'm so sorry, I wasn't there for you
All these silly things,
they'll never love me,
they could never hug me, hug me like you do
So why do I keep holding on?
Waste my time, trying to find
what I want but I don't even know
Got everything I could ever need,
if only I could see in front of me
So why, must I keep holding on?
All I should try to hold onto is you
All I should hold onto is you...
