A third song from me. A more modern piece of electro this time:

I'm sorry.

John Cocktolstoy, Monday, 7 March 2005 00:51 (fifteen years ago) link

To quote the Rutles, I am shocked...and stunned.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 7 March 2005 00:55 (fifteen years ago) link

... and aghast!

jed_ (jed), Monday, 7 March 2005 01:03 (fifteen years ago) link

Would you prefer if we only discussed the melody? Can you prove you wrote it by yourself?

edward o (edwardo), Monday, 7 March 2005 01:32 (fifteen years ago) link

How would one prove that?

A certificate from a Notary Public?

RS £aRue (rockist_scientist), Monday, 7 March 2005 01:56 (fifteen years ago) link

Well, something must be done, or else it can't be critiqued the way Geir would want.

edward o (edwardo), Monday, 7 March 2005 01:56 (fifteen years ago) link

This is my least favorite of the three songs posted.

jaymc (jaymc), Monday, 7 March 2005 02:22 (fifteen years ago) link

I agree with jaymc. I hate to say it Geir, but I think your muse deserted you with this one. I much prefer the one that sounds like "Eve of Destruction" plus "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" as done by Gilbert O'Sullivan.

Ken L (Ken L), Monday, 7 March 2005 04:04 (fifteen years ago) link

This track would not benefit from it, as, melodically, it is clearly the weakest all of all of the tracks I have recorded now. ;)

Hey Geir did you see this thread?

I must hear the other songs.

The vocals!

djdee (djdee2005), Monday, 7 March 2005 16:24 (fifteen years ago) link

I like this one too, geir, esp. the little twiddle in the intro 30 secs. in.

cozen (Cozen), Monday, 7 March 2005 16:31 (fifteen years ago) link

This is like Depeche Mode fronted by Bob Seger.

Remove your thong
Let us go "ding-dong"
Just like the animals do in the zoo

YOU ARE A FUCKING GENIUS OH MY GOD

The Ghost of Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Monday, 7 March 2005 16:45 (fifteen years ago) link

Great! Now I have an image of a hippo in a thong. Who the fuck's gonna pay for that therapist bill, huh Dan?

Michael White (Hereward), Monday, 7 March 2005 17:19 (fifteen years ago) link

(laughs at the thought of a hippo in a thong) ;)

Thomas Dolby would be proud.

(and the beats get better!)

donut debonair (donut), Monday, 7 March 2005 21:24 (fifteen years ago) link

I think you should have called yourself "Hongrow" for this song.

donut debonair (donut), Monday, 7 March 2005 21:52 (fifteen years ago) link

hung-ro

j blount (papa la bas), Monday, 7 March 2005 21:54 (fifteen years ago) link

Have we done a shamlessly, self-promoting "The Music of ILM-ers" thread with links to download? Because I, for one, could use the feedback...

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Monday, 7 March 2005 22:20 (fifteen years ago) link

I think at least there should be a "my work" category in the questions categories.

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Monday, 7 March 2005 22:23 (fifteen years ago) link

Uhm, Geir, are the lyrics sung with a wink? I mean if so, it's hilarous, if not it's hysterical!! Either way, it made me smile, thanks.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Monday, 7 March 2005 22:24 (fifteen years ago) link

Well, I suppose the "Ding Dong" and Monty Python references have quite a wink to them :)

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Monday, 7 March 2005 22:59 (fifteen years ago) link

This track would not benefit from it, as, melodically, it is clearly the weakest all of all of the tracks I have recorded now. ;)

Well, yes it is. The other two were better. Lyrically, it IS astonishing.

this is your very own "sex farm"

i mustve missed something. where are the threads for the other songs?

Felonious Drunk (Felcher), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 18:46 (fifteen years ago) link

I like this way more than Tenacious D for example.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 18:50 (fifteen years ago) link

OK. So fire away then ;)

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 19:16 (fifteen years ago) link

one year passes...
OK, so I finally got my brand new Cubase SE figured out good enough to record another song - the first produced at my homestudio.

This is a bit different than the rest, as it is an electro/synthpop instrumental. In fact, this is the first song I made on the Amiga back in 1988, a song that I have made around 25 new versions of on various computers and instruments.
This 2007 version uses mostly softsynths

The song, "Eggs & Bacon" is found at my Uhørt-site:

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Friday, 2 February 2007 01:42 (thirteen years ago) link

There's something of Lionel Richie's "Hello" in the melody.

jimn (jimnaseum), Friday, 2 February 2007 09:56 (thirteen years ago) link

Hongro, is it me you're looking for?

Dan I. (Dan I.), Friday, 2 February 2007 10:02 (thirteen years ago) link

sorry

Dan I. (Dan I.), Friday, 2 February 2007 10:03 (thirteen years ago) link

The opening of Eggs & Bacon reminds me of Sabrina's "Boys, boys, boys".

Were you part of the Amiga mod scene?
The only person I can remember from it anymore is Dr Awesome/Bjørn Lynne.

Øystein (Øystein), Friday, 2 February 2007 13:26 (thirteen years ago) link

There's something sweetly melancholy about it, nice.

StanM (StanM), Friday, 2 February 2007 13:34 (thirteen years ago) link

"Were you part of the Amiga mod scene?"

Sort of.

"The only person I can remember from it anymore is Dr Awesome/Bjørn Lynne. "

I sure remember him too. I was active at the same time :)

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Saturday, 3 February 2007 00:10 (thirteen years ago) link

While I am trying to figure out how to record vocals with satisfactory audio, I have put out yet another instrumental. This time it is a cover version for once, and the source is old: "Toccata & Fugue" by Bach. The Toccata is a rather faithful abbreviation of the original, whereas the Fugue is considerably more different.

Get out of the way, Walter/Wendy Carlos, here's Geir!

StanM (StanM), Tuesday, 6 February 2007 23:18 (thirteen years ago) link

Hopefully this sounds slightly more modern. :)

I love "Switched On Bach" though.

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Tuesday, 6 February 2007 23:57 (thirteen years ago) link

thirteen years pass...

I guess I have gone completely sellout. Or.. well, Hongroe is now on all the normal typical platforms, although I guess I will never have a Hongroe CD or vinyl record I can actually hold in my hands.

I see The Man has put an E for Explicit tag on ‘Do It With You’. Clearly 2020 is still not ready for a hippo in a thong.
