Thank you so much for the OHMSS theme! One of my favorite orchestral tunes from John Barry.

I figured I'd give a tease.

I'll be putting up a song soon. It has 3 part harmonies, guitar, drums and std. keys. Here's some hints:

Sung by a notable artist who is still active today.

Probably was most known from a film.

Also, the star of this film was not known as an actor.

Climbed to #2 on the Hot 100.

Earned nearly $100 million in the US.

Joined many all time greats together for cameos.

Also on Rolling Stone's greatest 500 songs of all time.

Multiple Grammy Award winning.

Could it be...."When Doves Cry" from Purple Rain? Oh wait....that made it to #1, so I guess it wouldn't be that. :(

P. S. Just played "Lose Yourself" and I loved it! I'd just say that it needs to be rated 3 rather than 2. I'm OCD about metadata like that... but no worries on my end since I'll just edit the DTA :)

P.P.S. You're a saint for "Billie Jean"

It could be the actual song, Purple Rain. That made it to #2 on the hot 100.

As a side note, I would love a bunch of songs from the album. I would die 4 U, Let's Go Crazy, When Doves Cry and Purple Rain.

Just a heads up on Billie Jean: it needs a 50 cent tuning on vocals. There's a few more things to work on but you will surely get better with time and you will learn to position notes correctly and to have them at the correct length. Tuning offset on the other hand is something you may not be aware of so here it is. :)

Also, you might want to revisit the pro keys when you're more comfortable with that instrument because I don't think you nailed the chords. By the way, to test both vocals and pro keys in Reaper apply a 50 cent tune because otherwise it won't make sense to your ear.

3 on what instrument?

Also, sorry to disappoint you guys, but it isn't Prince. Surprising he's not in the game yet.

3 for the "rating" I mean. MA rather than SR. Sorry for not clarifying. :D

Can't really say I'm familiar with that. I'll have to check into that.

And pro keys chords? On OHMSS? That just had the couple chords in the beginning, and I played them on a real keyboard and they sounded right. I'll have to re-check that one I guess.

And after the trouble I've had with this song I'm about to release, I'm definitely done with vocals for awhile. I know most people won't like it, but it's just not worth it when it takes over half my time authoring to get that sorted. I won't be doing as well known songs anyway.

Whoops. I see I did that with Legacy too. My bad. I totally overlooked that. HMX never released a mature song, did they?

Correct! They had a value for "Mature" ratings, but never used them in any officially-released content.

Hey Funky, Loved your OHMSS chart! Haven't tried on drums but the pro keys is fun, I'm making a video of it right now.

By the way, do you have Skype by any chance?

Glad you like it. The drums are a bit of a hot mess. Not the greatest for RB, but I did the best I could, and even threw in a unique solo to spice things up. And sorry I'm not on Skype.

I agree more bond would be awesome. Even though we have the GNR cover of Live and Let Die it would be great to have the original by Paul Mcartney.
