(I'm not gonna make a PMV either, so if anybody wants to, go right ahead! :D )

EDIT: This is now the remastered version. I Fixed the volume levels on the cymbals and changed the drum tracks in the beginning so they didn't sound so repetitive. I also balanced out the volume level differences between the verses and chorus a little bit. My Internet connection is really bad right now, so I can't yet offer a download link for the remastered version. The download link has been updated, so feel free to get the fixed version if ya wanna! :la:

LYRICS:

I close my eyes and breathe again, the minutes bend as they turn into years.
My mind begins to drift away, don't make me stay in here.

Take me to Equestria!
Take me to Equestria!

I'll journey through the stars tonight, the planets light will destroy any fear.
Realities collide again, my dearest friends are near.

Take me to Equestria!
Take me to Equestria!

Take me to a place where everypony shares, and no one cares how cool you are, for near or far your welcome there! You're welcome there!

Though Ive never been there before, It feels like I'm coming home!
I just close my eyes and drift away...

Close your eyes and follow me.
Can't you see?
It's calling to you...


Welcome to Equestria
Welcome to Equestria

Can't you see it?! Just over the starry night, like twenty thousand glowing diamonds wrapped in golden light! Golden light!
Welcome to the place where everypony shares, and no one cares how cool you are, near or far your welcome there! Welcome there!

Sorry if this is a dumb question but, is this song about death and Equestria as Valhalla or heaven...whatever you wish to call it?

I clicked the link for the remaster download, I went to the site and clicked "download track." but instead I downloaded and installed iLivid, which I'm not sure if that's part of it and I'm not sure if I trust it. If it is a part of it, can I trust it and how can I use it?

You're awesome musician, don't let anyone ever tell you that it isn't so. :)

My only critique is that the reverb+feedback on the singing is a bit over the top at some parts (especially the calmer parts), but other than that: LISTENED, LIKED, FAVED, DOWNLOADED AND PUT ON MY PLAYLIST. :P

Would you like to collab for a Trance track? I could send you some previews of leads I'm working on right now. ;)

Again (though I've only said it elsewhere) it's a lovely song, great composition and a wonderful sound. Musically it all fits together very nicely. However, I'm one of those people who can hear a mouse stirring in the grass fifty feet away but have trouble hearing what the person next to me is saying if there's a moderate amount of background noise, so it's very important that you take this next part with a saltlick: For me it was very difficult to hear the softer lyrics in the music. On my stereo (decrepit as it is) it was impossible, plus I kept getting blasted by the chorus. With noise-canceling headphones I could pick out about 83% of the lyrics on my own but had to read the rest; most of the trouble was where the vocals overlap near the end.

That's why I never commented directly on the first release, thinking it was just me. I'm guessing that you or others felt at least a little the same way though. :) This version is definitely better though.

It is a great piece musically and, despite my issues, the lyrics are worked in beautifully. It actually seems to have a strong Phil Collins influence, but maybe I'm subconsciously confusing "Take Me Home" with "Take Me to Equestria" simply because of the titles. Your arrangement skills are better than his though.

Thanks again!!
Believe it or not, I actually intended for the BG's on the chorus to be difficult, if not impossible to make out! :giggle: Some of my favorite songs have had certain vocal licks that are so subtle that I have to make up what I think they are saying! (Michael Jackson's "Human Nature," Switchfoot's "Golden," Mr. Mister's "Kyrie.") I realised that those really soft licks are part of the reason I love the songs so much! Unfortunately, I seem to be alone in this, because, as you mentioned, many people mentioned being frustrated that they couldn't understand the words. The main reason for the re-master was actually because of the crash cymbal patch. I recorded mostly using studio headphones with a lot of base, so the treble of the crashes was almost drowned out by the vocals. However, when I tried to listen to it on my iPhone with ear-buds, I was almost deafened by them! I realise if anyone listens to this song, it will most likely be with ear-buds, so I optimised it for an MP3 player as far as the percussion is concerned.

Phil Collins?! I LOVE PHIL COLLINS!! I have ever since Tarzan! (Actually, that is the first time I had ever herd of him. I was ten! :blush: ) but I fell in love with his music! I had always loved drums and the percussion in his music is AMAZING. (I guess that makes sense, with the whole "Genesis" thing. :P ) To be honest though, I had never heard "Take Me Home" until someone else mentioned it and I had to check it out! You are actually the second person to compare this to him which is SUPER flattering! But to say the my arrangement skills are better than his?! AAAAH! I LOVE YOU FOREVER!! :squee:

P.S. LOL! Saltlick! :lol:

Ah, so there's a stylistic reason behind the low level lyrics, which I can appreciate. I'm sure that happens in lots of other songs and I just don't pay attention. One song that I love the undertones in is "Kiss From a Rose" by Seal, but I think I can pick out most of the dialogue. (Also, I always sing the chorus with the words to "Mahna Mahna" instead. :D) Actually, I never had good equipment (only 20+ y.o. boom box, my car stereo, cheap PC speakers, etc.) for the longest time, but when I bought a pair of earbuds in '08 I found so much more depth that the songs (same media) I'd been listening to for up to a decade all sounded brand new.

Phil Collins is great, though I love his older stuff (Genesis and early solo) the most because the music itself was always so upbeat, no matter the song's premise. (Then again, we're talking '80s — my favorite period.) I'm glad I wasn't too crazy comparing your work to his. Different people have told me that my writing style reminds them of Edgar Allan Poe, which was cool until I realized they meant it was thick and always in the same voice — a chore to read. =p Fortunately that hasn't been mentioned regarding my pony tales.
