I don't. Bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh. Maybe that's just because I'm rubbish though idk.
you think bulimia IS a healthy way to slim down?
i cannot sympathise with your point of view.
but then no-one else does either so i'm not sure i'm the best person to ask.
i just couldn't think of a better way to phrase it.
thinking stuff like "Fantastic chord change there... Inspired lyric that".
but yeah, i like listening to my own stuff - mainly cause i want to write the sort of stuff i want to listen to. also, it can be really soothing and relaxing when i'm a bit knackered or feeling a bit thinly spread, like
at the right time.
We were well good though.
It's horribly egotistical but yeah, I really enjoy a lot of our songs.
It's perfectly alright to like listening to it. It helps that Joe makes our stuff sound so good. With my old band it always sounded lame but Joe produces us to the point where it actually sounds good enough to put out there so it helps.
If you think "I'm really proud of what I did there" then it's okay, but if you think "I am truly a god amongst mortals" then, yeah, it's a bit egotistical.
I would be very unhappy if I didn't like them.
when dealing with recordings. I like to look back year or so later thou. It depends on the song really some I feel like i didnt do them justice as a performer esspecially when singing and this makes me sad. I normally am proud of the songs themselves thou.
With being in a band i am now at the point where I am sick to death of our songs and will have to fake enthusiasm when playing live shortly.
i just pick things apart ("is this two loud? ooh i made a tiny tiny nano mistake there, ugh") and don't really enjoy the song like i do with other people's music. it guess it's because i was part of the creative process and i connect with it in a different way. i love playing the songs live if they're good though.
i.e. "Our new stuff sounds like The Cure circa Disintegration". I couldn't even imagine creating a song even ever-so-slightly close to anything from that album.
I don't see why i'd write a song that i didn't like.
if you don't it probably is, yes, because you sukkk ballz
In your faaaaaaaaaaaace.
link me up and I'll reassign my fawning
but by the time I've finished recording/mixing/etc/etc I've heard them a MILLION times, so I have to give myself a break. It's best to listen to them properly after you've given it a bit of time (mainly so I'm not sat there going "this bit needs re-doing, that section should have been better, the drums are too quiet, etc"). Can't listen to my old band though. It's cringeworthy.
but the only person who has admitted to listening to their own records all the time is Prince. Therefore i'm going to say that if you do this regularly then you are mental.
this band, i love listening to cos i think it sounds ace (i just wish we hadn't split up)
after we split up, this was one of the things i did. it features my rapping voice and i HATE listening to it.
Dead before their time. :(
for the last year or so, so at first I'd listen to it a bit to try and see where I was going wrong, I have now wrapped up singing with these tips:
do it quickly
try and make the end of the notes/sentances sound better
don't focus on the words too much
vary it a bit
which isn't very tuneful but has a lot of lyrics, over pronounce the lyrics a tiny bit
You always get actors saying they can't stand watching themselves acting - why should musicians be any different?
I used to hate listening to the dodgy four track recordings we made. Now a little older, I can see some of the songs, while by no means world-beating, weren't entirely bad.
I like listening to the tunes I make on FL Studio, though. As in, I walk around listening to them on my MP3.
That's either really sad or incredibly cool in an 8-Mile kind of way. IDK.
I always think it's called nero7 or something, good program
When I hear my voice I tend to think 'STFU' or :(
