I think the lyrics is sung in a male whiney sort of voice that goes allllllll right, gonna be gonna be alll right. Could be wrong though, haven't had luck looking through guided by voices or the violent femmes.
Edit: Thanks for working on this all. I think I am looking for just the riff part of this song that loops for the first minute of the song. Bum bum ba dum part. But the songs you are sending are great to listen too!
I was listening to a "new indie" playlist the other day on Spotify, and finding the songs okaaaaay but generally uninspiring. I listened a bit more closely to work out what about the songs wasn't doing it for me, and I noticed a particular trend--a lot of the songs had very static, or repetitive melodies, as though the writer(s) had landed on a certain phrase they liked and stuck to it, maybe changing a chord or two under it.
I've always loved diversely melodic songs ("Penny Lane" or "Killer Queen" being some obvious examples) Is melody-focused writing not a thing anymore in popular music, or was Spotify just off-the-mark on this one? Or is it that very modern issue that there are plenty of melodic songwriters, but it's an enormous pool and they're hard to find?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
I'm kinda lost on this one
I want to preface this by saying that everything I'm about to share could seem utter crap to you, this is from my simple (trying to find patterns, trying to justify everything that's going in the melody) beginner perspective. There's a lot of material and analysis available for making chord progression but very few people talk about melody writing, sliding it away from the table with a blank statement like it's intuitive or just a "scale"
Now, I've always been curious as to how artists from different genres come up with melodies or know how to make a combination of notes from a scale to make it say the emotion they want to convey, no matter if it's an emotional indie song about heartbreak or a famous on the radio for a month pop song.
Lately I've been picking up famous melodies which have caught my attention and I'll sort of point things that I've seen in common. Sort of tricks that I've found to make melodies. Now this is not me giving out advice to anyone but rather asking if I'm doing this right or if I'm making any sense. If at any point you feel I'm just overcomplicating these basic things for no reason at all then please correct me because I can't make that decision for my self.
Also, I only analyzed melodies in major and minor scales.
1- I sort of saw this pattern of using three to four close note motifs that are repeated alot in a certain part of a song. For instance most of Taylor Swift song consist of say, the tonic or the third played repeatedly to create a repeated riff which is repeated with subtle differences to make different sections. Songs like Look What You Made Me Do and Blank Spaces.
2- Using the 1st, 3rd and 5th for a feeling of being at home, house and neighborhood. We all know tonic is the home but the third when played with the root chord gives this sort of "house" feeling, it's resolved but it's not whereas the fifth gives this chaotic feeling if played on the upper octave but combing with a I chord it gives a feeling like unrest at ease. For instance, Weathered by Jack Garratt has this initial riff which plays the root, third and the fifth as a motif over a I chord.
3- Using three notes pattern or sort of using major thirds and minor thirds to create a complex emotion in the melodies. Like in Canon in D the main melody during the "chorus" (sorry I'm calling it the chorus) it uses the fifth, third and the fourth being repeated which gives the sound of this minor third (F# G A) then the melodies glides through the lower... keep reading on reddit ➡

For me it’s “Forward You Witnesses.” And “Make The Truth Your Own.”
Awful brainwashing-ass songs, but, as a child who had never been exposed to many other kinds of music..a couple of the songs kinda slapped back then.
Why YSK: Coming into Christmas try to avoid buying these cards. Inside each is a small speaker and circuit board, a lot of the time containing mercury and other harmful substances.
The card itself isn’t recyclable with these still inside, so if you do get one, don’t throw it straight in the trash!
i’ve just heard about this thing called “projekt melody” and i got no idea what it is...and i want answers...so dear bonk troops...if you can please answer my question
