In the intro, all I could hear over those chords were

'MAH LAAF IS BRILLIANT,

MAH LAAF IS PEYUUURE'

Anyways, hardly original. Cookie cutter 'singer-songwriter' (God I hate tht term) song with lazy lyrics. Girls will love it because your hair goes in 1D.

I skipped forward past your singing and heard the lyrics "So I found you and you're beautiful" and immediately turned off the video because my left hand was already clenched and ready to punch through my monitor.

This is shit. I don't even have to listen to the whole thing, I heard three notes and already know it's shit.

The choice of notes, the choice of lyrics, the choice of chords, everything about those couple of seconds I heard scream "this song is going to piss you off with its shittiness".

Eh?

The criticism 'cookie cutter' is such utter nonsense it's sickening.

Wat.

"Uninspired", "cliché", "boring", "formulaic" etc. etc.

That's what "cookie cutter" means, how is that nonsense?

"Uninspired"
Nigh on meaningless when it comes to music
"cliché"
Might as well write "Definitely works"
"boring"
Nothing to do with whether it's 'cookie cutter' or not
"formulaic"
>music
>formulaic

Duh, there are set ways to do things that sound good.

Well then you might as well strike every form of criticism from the list of valid things to say because "Music is subjective, maaaan."

It's not interesting and sounds like a dozen other songs. Is that a valid thing to say?
#16
TBH I liked your intro because a little qt and at least modest and friendly.

the song?

generic. predictable progression and the freeze pedal is far too loud in the mix. Your voice is smooth enough but it's nothing interesting. You have the technique but there is nothing there of creative value.

so ignore the children saying "omg it's the most terrible thing ever" because it isn't. But you need to stop listening to Ed Sheeran and write some stuff that's a little more experimental and has more depth; the lyrics are cringing.

It was the weirdest moment of my life, and I`ve been caught with my dick in my hand, by my brother, with a giant close up of a dudes face on the tv.

Regardless, it's marketable.

That's irrelevant to the actual quality of the music.

Honestly, OP, that was pretty gay. Enjoy the attention from teeny girls until you turn 23 and become uninteresting.


EDIT: Will, stop it. You're sounding like a major doucher here. Cookie-Cutter is a perfectly apt term because everyone who reads it knows EXACTLY what is meant by it. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's invalid. Chill, bud.

I am a firm believer of the idea that not only redundant boring things can be marketable.

I was just trying to add some positivity to this thread. I don't know what I was thinking.

Everybody knows what I mean if I say "oooh that's so generic"

Still cringe every time I hear it as a criticism

No he doesn't

And I'm not mad, I'm just upset at kids being boring with their music.

Still not as bad as "networking".

It's something Paul Allen would say.

Just because Paul Allen would say it doesn't make it wrong. "Networking" is nothing but "getting to know people".

Heck, you and I have each other on Facebook, that's technically "networking".

Quote by CoreysMonster
How is "networking" a bad work?

Business networking specifically. It's a buzzword, like "verbiage," "pseudointellectual," and "buzzword".

I have been hearing it a lot this summer and I am about to slap someone upside the head if they tell me I need to "network" one more time.

'Cookie cutter' is something Ian would say. That doesn't make it wrong, but...

It'd be networking if we were working for different companies and had to use each other's assets or something.

I like to think of the people on my Facebook as friends.

Maybe I'm too used to the game industry, but in my line of work, everybody you meet that is talented or good at what they do, they get put into the category of "Is talented/fun/intelligent, would talk to again and possibly contract with work", and the same happens to yourself. It's not mean-spirited, and everybody always tries to help each other, but the simple fact of the matter is, you are judged by what you can do, and how eager you are to learn. That's networking.

Quote by MakinLattes
I guess Ryan only thinks of us as people he can use.

Oh hush. This is industry-relevant only.

You're not getting it at all because you're the kind of person who'd say 'networking' and 'dynamism' and 'optimization' without a second thought
