  1. ...but I LOVE her "Your Love is my Drug" song. My thoughts: Anyone else have this guilty pleasure of actually liking such crap? I mean, I don't like anything she does, but this sounds so '80s to me, and it's just so darn catchy. Is this where music is heading? Is it all starting to become good again (I'm talking pop music)?
  2. I do stuff too, awesome stuff. I mean, REALLY awesome stuff. You couldn't handle it. Nobody can. Except me, because I'm awesome.
  3. Yeah, fluorescent lights don't work well for lighting at all, and you can't dim their brightness either (at least mine you can't.) Should have kept the incandescent =/ Looking forward to it!
  4. This video is about New Years resolutions. Submit your responses!
  5. 112 kbps - 3.14 MB http://www.4shared.com/file/77203965/e804d...eat_demo_2.html It's a rough demo I threw together in about an hour or two. I want to use it in a YouTube video. I liked it when I was doing it, but hearing it again I'm not entirely sure. I don't know that my voice works too well in it. I need opinions. You don't have to even listen to the entire thing -- half of it would be sufficient enough. Be honest. If you squirmed in your seat or whatever, I wanna know. I don't know if this is something I can really put in a YouTube video and sound "cool" or not. I'd rather embarass myself here than on YouTube. BTW: It will be in a Saxman727 video, so the video itself of course won't be serious, but the effort on the song itself is serious.
  6. Hey I gave a listen, and I like the concept. It's a good tune for a video game, but I wasn't keen on the strings. They have no presence. I think they need some more highs. It sounds like they may have been recorded at a low sample rate, resulting in the loss of a lot of those rich highs that make them seem alive. I also think you need at least some bottom... just something there that plays periodically. It would help fill up the otherwise very empty gaps in the song. But those are the only two negatives I have. I do like it and I wanna hear an improved version because you have a really good concept here =)
  7. First song recording I've done in almost 2 years! It's a demo, and it doesn't fade out at the end like I want, but it is what it is. Let me know what you think. It's a cover and is synth-style pop. And yes there's singing, you have to wait for it. http://www.4shared.com/file/41698129/27129ea9/Got_the_Hots_demo_2.html
  8. Okay, I whipped up Yakety Sax on my saxophone and posted it. I made a few mistakes, but it was the best recording of the ones I did. Please leave comments and let me know how it sounds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouJDnB2724M
  9. I have a channel on YouTube I'll be doing a bunch of songs on. I haven't done a saxophone video yet, but I will be doing so soon. I'm curious to know what people think of my singing. Sometimes I'm not always confident about it, so I like to hear opinions and maybe some suggestions. http://www.youtube.com/jonathangranit -- there it is. . .
  10. http://www.4shared.com/file/30483233/d781f5b8/Me__low__-_You_Give_Me_Something.html It'll stream. I'm looking for honest critiques of my vocal work. I appreciate all the input I can get =)
  11. EDIT: I have 6 songs up. The genres vary between them. I also redid the Usher song, and I think it's a whole lot better now. The 6 songs are as follows: '70s - Walk This Way - Aerosmith \\ rock - Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton \\ rock \ easy listening '80s - Billy Jean - Michael Jackson \\ pop \ r&b \ motown - If You Don't Know Me By Now - Simply Red \\ pop \ easy listening '00s - American Soldier - Toby Keith \\ country - Burn - Usher \\ pop \ r&b You can download / stream them at -- http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/4545648...55/sharing.html I did take after take after take after take on some of these to try and get a good solid performance out of each of these. I'm still not entirely happy with Walk This Way though. I'm also planning to do 3 more songs before I upload everything on my brand new YouTube channel. I have a Justin Timberlake song (yeah I know, call me crazy) that I am going to do. It's a brand new one that was recently released as a single, and it's doing extremely well on the charts right now. For a modern pop song, it's not that bad actually. Also, I'm thinking of doing "Hero" from Nickelback. Does this song interest anyone? Again, I'm trying to be diverse in my music, so I'm thinking that doing this rock song will help appeal to more demographics. And for another song... I don't know! Really I need one more good modern r&b / pop song to do. But it can't have explicit lyrics, and I have to actually like it at least a little! If anyone has any suggestions for what song I could do, let me know. I'd prefer something very recent (like within the past couple months) that was a big hit. Any opinions or suggestions on my performances are also welcome.
  12. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gl88PLwcVXE I was told by people that I am a good dancer, so I put together this video showing my cool dance skills. Rate me!
  13. I decided to put this out there for no real reason. I just felt like doing it. Tell me what you think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQ8sCeFuNcQ
