Just got such a buzz! I was listening to a stream on Soundcloud and then, out of nowhere, one of my songs came on and I was, like, ‘hey – this sounds familiar – I wonder what it is.’ And that’s when I realised that it was something I sang, recorded and produced a couple of years ago and in my mind I went ‘wow! I love this!!’ Honestly, it was a great experience. As I sat listening to it, I was wrapped in this really nice buzzy feeling that I can still feel now.
And, you know – compared to the other stuff in the stream, it wasn’t actually that bad either!
I now know how proper recording artists feel the first time they hear their song on the radio. It wasn’t that the song was smooth (but it was smooth enough) or polished (but it was shiny enough for me) or even that the singing was any good (image a nervous 12 year old singing in front of a live studio audience for the first time in his life) but it was me! It was my song!! It was mine!!!
Okay, enough with the exclamation marks already – here is the song if you want to take a listen. It’s called Little Star (wah-hoo): https://soundcloud.com/levishedated/little-star-wah-hoo-robert
