View Full Version : Long time no Song.

I haven't posted a song in a long long time. It's been months.
But here's my latest...
Tell Me on a Sunday (http://www.freehomepages.com/moonfire/angelina_onasunday.mp3) From Song & Dance
(save target as)
There's background noise, and a few sour notes.
But constructive criticism, is always appreciated.

I actually thought it was very good! ^^ I liked it. You have a very pretty voice. In my opinion though, you're voice would have done better with a little louder and higher tempo song. But that's just my opinion, lol.
The only critism I have is about two minutes into the song, when you hit that note on the word "Find", I'll tell you the truth and say that made me flinch. THe rest was beautiful though.
Oh yeah, the only background noise I noticed was in teh beginning, otherwise, you were clean, however, My volumes on low, so I wouldn't know...

Well. I'm probably the only person on the boards besides maybe Amby who dares be harsh on you. Because it'll help you get better. <33333
Your vibrato sounds forced at parts, and sometimes your acting overshadowed the singing. Not necessarily a bad thing for Broadway songs, but you might want to integrate it better - there's no real transition... just OMGSINGING or OMGACTING. If you want to do musical theatre it's good to find a happy medium to convey emotion while focusing more strongly on the notes. I hope that makes sense.
Also sounds almost like you got off a bit, timing-wise, about 1:50. Not much... but a tiny bit, enough to make me notice.
But my biggest complaint is, I can't really tell what your inspiration is, so it's hard to judge the acting. Sometimes you sounded violently angry, sometimes just hopelessly sad. Don't get me wrong, it's HARD to get just the right feeling unless you've been playing that character up to that point in the show, and so in that sense a lot more character preparation should probably go into something like this to be able to pull it off. I'm a hypocrite here, because I cheat and mimic (which is what it almost sounded like you were doing) the emotions of the original. Something to keep iin mind.
I think you were mostly on, note-wise, but watch out and again... PHRASING. I cannot stress this enough - it will make or break your song. You can have all the emotion you darn well please but without the proper phrasing to back it up? Phbbbt. And don't be afraid to back off a bit on the acting if it'll keep you floating more melodically and consistently through the song.
Yes. I love you <3

That buzz is distracting. And must die. XD Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good performance, but you started to get a little shaky at the powerful parts. HOWEVER, I am assuming that was your acting, so I won't complain about it. ^^ A few sour notes, yes, but nothing completely agonizing. ;)

Well,I was going to give a critique, but I really think that Nanuri summed it all up, and applause to Nanuri for not fearing hurt feelings! That worries me sometimes.. So I guess in other words, "What Nanuri said!"
