Melody (The Doovie Brothers)

Description


Wrote this for my cartoon/virtual band, The Doovie Brothers. I write all their songs, sing as each singer, play guitars as each guitarist, voice act as each member, and draw all their pictures.

I'm pretty happy with the sound of this. Tried something totally new. Using the robotic auto-tune effects on most of the vocals! Sound like a boy band. :P I like that sound, really matches the whole "cartoon band/virtual band" idea and sound. :D I'll probably be making more like these... as I am requested to do so. :)

This song sounds as if it's written for girlfriend in the boy's perspective without Mack's intro (and it can be applied that way also), but it's really written for a father daughter relationship... mother and daughter too. It can apply to parent and son too, but some lyrics say "you're my precious girl..." and I don't think you call a son a girl. :P Anyway, Mack from my Doovie Bros cartoon band has a daughter with his wife Michelle. Her name is Melody, and that's where this song comes from. :)

(lyrics are cool... melody in verses sound kinda corny though.. especially Doov... with auto-tune effects, I'm not afraid to sing high... :P)

Chorus:
You're my melody,
And you'll always be
The melody my heart sings!

You're my melody,
And you'll always be
The special part in my heart!

Verse 1:
I'm gonna be right by your side! -flart!-
'Cause don't you know you're mine?
So don't you worry tonight,
'Cause I'm gonna be your guide! YEAH!

Pre-Chorus:
You're my precious girl,
You're the top of my world,
And I'll do anything

To see you succeed in life,
Knowing wrong from right.
You make me wanna sing!

Verse 2:
-flart!- You're never gonna leave my sight.
I'll love you 'til I die.
I'll shield you from the storm!
Protect you from the harm!

I used Mack to sing the last pre-chorus. It's not good on purpose, because I don't want Mack to be a good singer. He's only a guitarist for a reason. :) I had him sing in the song Michelle too. Figured it might be sweet of him to sing, even thought he's not that good. He had courage in this one, since there's auto-tune effects. :P
