Reminds me heavily of Annie Lennox, especially the beginning has great 'Love Song for a Vampire' vibes to it.

I commented on this in the forum thread. Go call Morten Harket now.

Ooooh - yeah - it does resemble something I've picked up, in a couple of parts there, but great highscore peace AND kinda power balladesque as well.

* Kind of a wuzz "Enuffz enuffz, Return-ish"power ballad though, but still a power ballad :)

hee hee

oh - love the guitar-like lead towards the end!

Yep, a true high-score tune.
This sounds like you have completed a heavy task and can finally take some rest :-)

Good stuff. The cheese factor is quite bearable and the commando highscore esque bassline fits well :D

Just great. The best one so far in this competition. I just love this 'heroic' lead going all the way from low to high tones.

Ahhhhh, this is the good stuff.

Absolute 1st. Start is hymnic, and keeps it long time as heroic as needed.

This can be a real life ballad too. Can I licence it for my future rock band? :D

Thanks for all the positive feedback :)

Flex: The more the marrier!

PAL: It's not like I invented the wheel here so you can probably find hundreds of songs in this one if you really try. A little bit like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pidokakU4I ;)

Cool! You delivered yours pretty fast.. Waiting for OMP's tune and as soon as I get some free time I'll be involved. High-score tunes/Ballads are of my speciality. :-)

10 print random Morten Harket
20 blend them together and change speeds
30 goto 10


Am I onto something Kristian... You are such a clever dude here... WOW... I love it! The tune is really great... but also so close... I can and will never leave this alone before the truth is out there!

Awesome tune! Really love it ♥ . Reminds me of the good old tunes from the 1986-1991, many musicians did so great High-score tunes, or end tunes of a demo, like Rob Hubbard, Neil Baldwin, Markus Schneider, Deek, Link, JCH, JT, Reyn, Drax, and many others... :)

Thanks guys :)

PAL: The first three-four notes might sound a little Twin Peakish? Perhaps that's what makes it sound a little familiar? Wasn't intended though. Didn't hear it myself before after a while.
