Default New song made in Reaper, with video

Haven't been doing much in Reaper lately, but a few days ago I started putting some things together. Finished a kind of upbeat electronic thing today, and even put together a simple video clip for it (made of old 50s film clips and a Dutch documentary about telephones... All copywrite free material).

Please have a listen (and comments are very welcome - that's how we all learn):

the lyrics are a hair too simple for me, but the bactrack is very good!

I love how the progression goes. A lot.


great job man

how a bout keeping the "can you feel it" very repetitive, but changing the lyrics in between a bit more?

can you feel it
I can
can you feel it
your man
can you feel it
something different every time, ecxept for the choruses, of course

Thanks for the comments. Lyrics is a problem for me - I am not very good at writing them (nor singing them). But I don't want to only make instrumental tracks either, so...

cool vid.
I can hear a little something going on in the upper lows that's just slightly muddy, but not majorly so, other than that, nice mix. Song doesn't sound like them, but you voice almost gave me a Pet Shop Boys feel.

Thanks for the comments. I'm thinking about how to improve the lyrics, so I might upload a new version in a few days. But it all depends on how it goes...

Sure is a Pet shop boys feel to it. I would like a human touch to the 'melody synth', like some modulation or something. Feels mechanic. But that's me.
Great work anyway!

I put together a similar simple video to one of my older songs:
