Been busy with the RL lately (sick + work + class = bad), but it's time to get back on track. I'm a huge fan of Robbie's work - I still find his super-obscure DarXide ReMix great fuel for late night coding/working/mixing/whatever. Now he sets his sights on 'Wily Stage 1'; yeah, it's a popular tune, but you can be pretty sure his take on it isn't gonna resemble anyone else's. The artist writes:
"Okies, so this is my first submission in years haha. It's a remix of the renowned Dr Wily 1 theme from Mega Man 2, and it's called 'For You'. Before you wince and think 'SHIT NOT ANOTHER WILY REMIX!!+1DIKHEDZ!!-1KooLPoiNTZ', I think it's kinda unique in the fact that it's rather lyrical :D
So, I started this a year ago, but progress came to an abrupt halt when my PC died (twice). I would have liked to have added a little more to this, but I've lost a lot of my original sounds and vocals for this, so that would be a large task to re-do it all again... work keeps me insanely busy.. which sucks, but I digress...
I'm quite happy with this as is. As previously mentioned, I have indeed provided my own vocals for this remix. I don't profess to be the best singer around. And yes, I have AutoTune-ddd my vox up. But even in the time since I recorded the vox for this, I have improved quite a bit. But for the time being, it sounds ok, at least to me. I don't see it as a horrible thing (AutoTune, that is), unless it's detrimental, in which case it's up to you guys to decide. My use of Auto Tune will sure to be a point of contention... It's not perfectly implemented, but hell if I'm gonna let a few off notes keep me from trying to sound ok :D I have a story to tell, and I hope it's come across decent enough to be heard.
Lyrically, it's quite vague... but at the same time I feel quite visual. You can make of it what you want... whatever you see while you listen to the lyrics, it's correct. Of course, it's rather personal at the same time... it's definitely from someplace deep inside. But as much as it was important to get a specific emotion out of me at the time of writing the lyrics, it's as much about whoever listens... I hope it's Anthematic (is that even a word??? O_o) enough for the masses to relate to"
Robbie loves him some vocals; it's a staple of his arrangements and I'm personally glad he continues the trend here. Like he says, he's not Pavarotti, but I think it works, and I like the lyric & how it oscillates between vague and specific. It's clear that Robbie could have cleaned up the vocal tracks a bit further had he not been victim to multiple crashes (back yo sheet up, folks), but even as-is I don't find the production gets in the way much. AnSo writes:
"Digging this. The arrangement and unique approach weighs up for the slight lacking production. Like Larry said, the vocals needed some de-essing and they're wobbling pretty badly. The piece as a whole though is really nice, flowing and an interpretive arrangement. I personally liked the key change, very eurovision song contest! :D"
God bless Mattias for making that reference, so I didn't have to :) Always fun every year playing the Eurovision drinking game, doing shots on every spontaneous power key-change. Diea adds:
"I remember really liking this one when I heard it in the WIP forums. There's been improvement since then, especially with harmonies and production. The lyrics really work for this song, and they fit creatively into the melody."
Great downbeat chill synth-pop from an artist who it's great to see - and hear - back in action.

Her words unspoken, with silence to blame.
How she tries
to gain the courage to understand why
it came to be this way.
These words of wisdom, time and again,
He knows it's not her fault
that it was all in vain..
..we all bleed the same.
Our differences are great,
but not enough to separate us from their lies.
We tried; We did our best.
Why can't you look into my eyes?
And she said "my friend you know there's nothing we can do
Just let it go.
Secrets never show themselves.
You'll learn to just move on,
Till then this song is for you."
And he said "the only way to learn is to experience the pain.
In that way we're the same" Oh...
They turned around and parted ways.
This song is for you.
So it's been written through the ages of time.
From pens of ancient masters to prose of the modern mind.
A tale to be told.
And now we find them holding onto their faith.
They've tried all that they could,
but we know it's just to late...
...to not end up alone.
The Jury overthrown.
Their differences are few,
but not enough to see them through.
It's such a shame.
They wonder whose to blame...
...or is it just that we're the same?
