    MikeDecIsHere's Music Thread

    List Of Songs! (open)



    Don't know if this is the correct place to post this, but I've been here a while, and I don't think there's a dedicated sub-forum for this haha.

    I figured I would share some of the music that I produced. I got into doing this recently, and since I haven't been able to sing in a long time, this really is something that I find to be really fun.

    If you guys want, I can post more covers that I plan on doing. You are also free to suggest songs that I can do covers on (I might not be able to do them though).

    Every Team (A Conn Coll Tennis Rap)


    This one was done with my tennis team and myself. I am the chorus and the 5th rap. A lot of inside jokes here, but the song itself is pretty good.

    Heartless Cover

    This was for a class, but goddamn I'm happy with how this one came out. Going above and beyond for an intro class certainly pays off haha.

    If you guys want downloadable links, let me know. I would be happy to post them. Also, feel free to suggest some covers ^_^

    If you don't mind me asking have you ever taken vocal lessons?

    I've taken one vocal lesson my entire life. So really I'm going to go with no for that one.

    Haha I actually intentionally sang with an accent in the second one in order to give the song a bit more flavor.

    Well now I feel like a dumbass x.x

    but thank you!

    I'm not really sure why, that forum is for visual art. I would've posted there a long time ago, had I known it existed. Should we move it here?

    Sorry if I caused controversy with this x.x

    Anyway, back to the purpose of this thread!

    Pokemon Cypher 2012

    Yeah, for those of you who don't know, some youtubers have started a tradition where they use a beat and make Pokemon Raps (Started by AreYouBrownXP and TheWhizBone). Anyway, I was called out, so I decided to make one of these raps. Pokemon Raps are hilariously bad haha.

    Edit: I also made a list of songs in the op, just to make browsing easier.

    Edit2: The next cover I will be doing will most likely either be "How to Save a Life" by The Fray or "Summer Love" by Justin Timberlake. Opinions would be cool. I will not be making the rhythm for those unfortunately, I don't have the time.

    Not to undermine DM or anything, but this post and that thread in general would highly discourage removing the music thread from SS, though talk to a Mod about it if you feel strongly about having that sort of thing here in a forum. :3

    So as to actually supply something to this thread, your newest song is hilarious, Mike! Great stuff, hahaha :D

    2 Questions.

    1) Do you make your own beats and background tracks? They sound grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat! They're so clear and sound like they're mixed very professionally.

    2) WHY U NO JOIN THE EPIC POKEMON RAP BATTOL TOURNAMENT???

    Hey man, nice job! You have a cool voice; your diction is very clear and you can hear the passion for what you're singing about in your pieces (especially on the Heartless cover). I'd love to see some more stuff!

    In terms of the Music Thread in Smeargle's Studio, talk with the mods there about it. As someone who loves music and sharing compositions, I'd be cool with it being in either forum.

    The only beat that I made was the one for the Heartless cover. The one for "Every Team" is actually "Every Girl" by Young Money. The Cypher's beat was done by some DJ, idk the name though.

    There's a Rap Battle Tournament? ._.

    lol you didn't undermine me, I have never seen that post and never read SS. If that's the case, the forum description definitely should change.

    Thanks for the positive feedback everyone :]

    I just made a new song:

    Iris Cover

    This was for the karaoke contest, but I figured I would add it to my repertoire over here :]

    Back with a brand new cover!

    How to Save a Life Cover

    I thought it was ok. The guy from the Fray has a weird ass accent, so it was hard to try to do it without one -_-

    In honor of user Reyscarface's extreme homosexuality, I decided to cover the band that he probably beats off to every single night before he goes to sleep:

    What Makes You Beautiful Cover

    Think I did ok. Tough to match pitch with kids who really haven't hit puberty yet, but whatever haha.

    I haven't posted anything in a long time, but I just made a new cover! :]

    Little Things, by One Direction

    Honestly, I feel that this is one of my best ones, so yeah. That could also be because I got a new microphone haha.

    Edit: No Ult, I just stopped caring.
