Parralox - Appalachia

Appalachia

Written by John von Ahlen


These words...

Chorus
If you wanna be what you really wanna be, then you really need to see what you really want to be
Never show your fear when the enemy is near, for the enemy that's near will then never reappear
Tears in the rain are what happen in your brain, like the memories that fade, like the time you cannot gain
Don't live in fear like a victim or a slave, for if you speak the truth, then you will obeyed.

BPM 122

0124 - Just installed Cubase 12 Pro, but I opened Cubase 11 to see if some of the old project still worked.
I opened up a few songs that I started work on a while ago and found this one that I started and never finished.
I just added the chorus synths, and out of nowhere had the idea to add some chorus vocals. Now that I think of it they kind of sound like "everything starts with an E" although I wasn't actually thinking of that at the time.
I was more after a rapid fire vocal sort of deliver, unlike what I usually do for Parralox, but it seemed to fit with this track.

Chorus
If you wanna be what you really wanna be, then you really need to see what you really want to be
Never show your fear when the enemy is near, for the enemy that's near will then never reappear
Tears in the rain are what happen in your brain, like the memories that fade, like the time you cannot gain
Don't live in fear like a victim or a slave, for if you speak the truth, then you will obeyed.


0301 - Wednesday 30th March 2022
I just finished recording all the vocals and doing a rough arrangement of the song.
It's a little different to a standard Parralox song, and I hope people like it.
I should go to bed soon, I have a pre recording session with Costa at JOY949 for Neon Nights at 12 noon today.
