      8 Tracks App

      1 month ago

      Forever ago I started talking about an App the we would release that would let you hear the songs in a different way than before.....so...finally....


      8 Tracks has been release for iOS devices and is available now https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/8-tracks/id1040240...


      The App is free and one song (This Will be the Day) is free also. Other songs are purchased in-app for $0.99. The basic idea of 8 Tracks is that you can do things like muting the lead vocal, listen to just the drums or guitars-that sort of thing. It is meant for fans/listeners, not just for musicians or remixers.


      More info can be found here https://www.facebook.com/8TracksbyArgylePlaid/

      "It's My Turn" lyrics (short version)

      3 months ago

      you were the one

      who held me down and told me

      i was heading nowhere

      you said know your place

      accept your fate and show good face

      and be thankful that you’re there

      that was so long ago

      when you owned me

      i believed it was true

      bend me shape me

      build me break me

      why was I your fool?

      and now I’m so much stronger

      i’m not yours any longer

      i’ve got a message here for you


      hey wait turn and show your face

      i’ve got a lot to say and you’re not

      going anywhere

      you lose the time you ruled me’s through

      i’m in control I own my soul

      and i’ll never go back there

      wasted years that I spent

      never knowing

      i was kept, i was used

      never-ending

      condescending

      now i just refuse

      i don’t care what it costs me

      i know I almost lost me

      won’t spend another day confused


      time for you to learn

      it’s my turn

      I won’t be held down any longer

      i’ve waited all my life and finally it’s here

      it all begins

      a chance to win

      a dream that’s been a lifetime

      an endless vast uphill climb

      the day i’ve waited for is drawing near

      "When it Falls" lyrics (intro version)

      3 months ago

      maybe red’s like roses?

      maybe it’s the pool of blood

      the innocents will lay in

      when in the end you’ve failed to save them?

      their dying eyes

      are wide and white like snow

      and now they know

      the cost of trusting you’s obliteration

      mirrors will shatter

      crushed by the weight of the world

      the pillars collapse in shame

      there’ll be no rest

      there’ll be no love

      there’ll be no hero in the end

      who will rise above

      and when it ends

      the good will crawl

      the shining light will sink in darkness

      victory for hate incarnate

      misery and pain for all

      when it falls

      Sacrifice lyrics (short version)

      1 year ago

      close your eyes now time for dreams
      death is never what it seems
      did the things you thought you should
      all the things they said were good

      all your faith in ancient ways
      leaves you trapped inside a maze
      take the lives of those you need
      sow the death then reap the seed
      reap the seed

      born an angel heaven sent
      falls from grace are never elegant
      stars will drop out of the sky
      the moon will sadly watch the roses die

      in vain
      lost, no gain
      but you're not taking me

      you can't have my life
      i'm not your sacrifice
      you can try, but i'm free
      and you won't conquer me
      i won't crawl
      most of all
      i won't fall
      for you

      Caffeine lyrics (short version)

      1 year ago

      Full version has more lyrics....but I was too excited about these lyrics to sit on them. Got some help from Lamar on this song smiley0.gif

      listen up strap in notify your next of kin
      you're about to take a ride a little on the blazing side
      guzzle down your red bull you're gonna need a bucket full
      you're watching me accelerate and tear apart the interstate

      a certified monster i'm an absolute trip
      like Otis Redding hard to handle so you better get a grip
      a super-fast superfly bonafide wise guy
      call the morgue and say goodbye write your will it's time to die

      caffeine i'm caffeine
      caffeine i'm caffeine

      i'm a bad dream
      i'm a rad scene
      i'm a tad mean
      but i'm not afraid to take you out

      i'm a cheetah on the plains i'm the highway star
      a supersonic princess in a million dollar car
      blood on fire pumping through my veins
      weaving in and out while i'm bolting through the lanes

      i'm hyperdrive overdrive hit the gas at fifty-five
      breakneck trainwreck in my presence genuflect
      track-roundin speed-a-soundin lectrifyin pulse-poundin
      heart-pumpin brain-thumpin watch me get the party jumpin

      Shine lyrics

      1 year ago

      baby it's time to make up your mind
      i think that tonight is when our stars align
      honey it's time to leave the doubt behind  
      take my hand cuz you and I are gonna shine

      i was cold in the dark
      it was empty in my life
      from the outside it looked so bright
      but nothing felt right ....to me

      like a sky with no sun
      like a night that has no day
      my heart was eclipsed by the dark
      then something changed

      i saw a little ray of light come through
      the tiniest of sparks came into view
      and then
      you made me hope again

      i've been watching you helping you
      wishing that you'd see
      that the girl you've been waiting so long for could be me

      now-i've never been in love
      but i think this is it
      it might be just a school girl crush
      but i have to admit

      i wanna take a chance and make you see
      i think that you're the one who'll rescue me
      this time
      you're finally gonna see you should be mine

      but baby it's time to make up your mind
      i think that tonight is when our stars align
      honey  it's time to leave the doubt behind  
      take my hand cuz you and I are gonna shine

      i won't need any dreams
      it's all there if you're by my side
      every moment's enough
      and you take me to paradise

      when i needed a hero you knew it
      and you were there
      and I'm scared but I'll open my heart up
      i'm ready to dare

      i know i've never felt like this before
      I never really knew what love was for
      i dreamed
      but never did believe

      but baby it's time to make up your mind
      i think that tonight is when our stars align
      honey it's time to leave the doubt behind  
      take my hand cuz you and I are gonna
      light the sky until it's dawn and
      baby you and I are gonna shine

      Opinions on RWBY Vol 2 Score....

      1 year ago

      On the last CD, we put all of the score "cues" (that's what we call music written for a scene) into order chronologically, so there was a song on the CD for each of the episodes. I've seen it said a few times that, although this is nice for re-living the episodes, that it might be better to have the various cues assembled in more of a 'matching vibe/energy' type fashion. So, you'd organize them more as "here's a song that gives you a lot of high energy action cues" and "here's a bunch of mellow stuff", that sort of thing.

      What do you think? (of course, this only has to do with the score-the instrumental stuff-not the songs).

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oFpVF4IvzIc Hey Jeff! I love your music by the way! But I was wondering what you'd think about this song I remixed from "I Burn"! I remixed it in GarageBand, using only the piano. This song is basically for Yang, and her arm... But if you ever choose to use it, change it all you want! ^^ P.S. The lyrics I put in don't rhyme... So you can change that if you want too

      I'm The One (Estimated lyrics))


      Welcome to the bloodbath, took it to the top!

      Fist-fight Death-match; come and join the club!


      Can't scrape/spare your face from a metal clad boot.

      You should give up now! Your retaliations moot! (Oh yeaaah! Ooooh!)


      I wanted a break but you took it too far! So I'm gonna make you hurt and I'm gonna make you cry!

      You wanna mess around? Well come on lets go! Got no time to waste so lets put up a show!


      I'm the one that your mother said, "Don't mess with them or you'll end up dead!" Dead, dead, dead and you'll fall where you are!(?)

      You're looking tall! You're looking tough!


      But sorry dude, that's not enough! You need to bring twenty four men to win this duel!

      The bigger they are then the more they will bleed! The deeper the scars; they won't heal! Buckets of pain as they lie there in shame! No-where to move, this is it!



      I'm the one! born in a nightmare of mayhem they said

      I'm the gun! fuel builds the pain just a little bit higher

      I am done! I can tell what you're thinking, Won't stop by your way!

      Delusions! And I'll steal till you're blind, And defeat you from inside your mind!


      ???? How did i do ???

That said, I love your work, I love playing music so it's really cool trying to be as good as your musi and keep up the great work! Looking forward to listening and buying your music in the future

      Greetings, I found some good music that I think would give you some inspiration. Many of them involve powerful heavy metal music that masterfully captures the character of the boss battle that it's referring to. Here's the first one in the playlist, if you like it, click on the playlist after the video is over.:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMnbipHn9ZE&list=PLnFyS3e3GVCbufx1iue3F_wKpwCNpfBDa&index=1

      I also recommend you watch the context of the music in the boss battles, here's a link.

      Sooooo. Now that RT has addressed to fans that RWBY isn't family friendly (Which I kinda figured.) Does that mean you won't have to censor yourself when it comes to music anymore? (If you actually had to, maybe it was just your choice to censor a song, and that's cool too!) ...I still have the original uncensored version of 'I Burn' on my phone, and to be honest I always thought those lyrics fit the dark foreshadowing of the series to begin with.

    • garenectaris

      Someone over on the wiki noticed a discrepancy in the lyrics from 8track, compared to the context of the song.

      In "Dream Come True"

      this line:


      Look in every land and port in the world.


      was previously interpreted as:


      Look, you'll never land a part in her world

      --------------------

      Some of us feel like the official lyric given by the app might be incorrect, as it doesn't really connect to the rest of the song, and I was wondering if this was a slip-up when entering the lyrics.

      ------------------

      Clarification; i do not speak for the wiki, i just happen to be a member and was discussing the discrenecy with someone else in that comunity.

      Fan cover of This Will Be The Day


      Thank you for releasing the 8 Tracks app for the RWBY songs Jeff! I had to borrow a friend's Ipad to use the app, but I now gotten a bunch of instrumental tracks to use for my fan vocal covers. I remastered my previous This Will Be The Day cover with the official music track. A much cleaner mix than my previous attempt.

      Hey Jeff. So I was wondering if you would put any songs you made for RvB in the 8 Tracks app. I would really like to transcribe "Red vs Blue" and "On your Knees" and some other songs, and with this new app it would be much easier to do. Thanks.

    • XDex Hmm, uh, um.... sponsor,

      1 month ago

      Quick question: Will the song playing when Neon is skating and fighting Yang be separate from the one playing during the rest of the battle (the sort of jazzy remix), or will they be all part of one song like in the episode? I'm hoping the Neon song is a full song, I loved what little bit we heard!


      Keep up the great work! I'm saving my traditional fanatical blubbering comment for when the soundtrack is released. Might as well get it all done in one go. :)

      Hey Jeff. There's something I've been thinking about for a while, and I figured I should just ask you. When you wrote 'All Our Days,' were you really writing a message to Casey, rather than just another song for RWBY?

      I know it's kinda creepy to ask about something like that, but every time I hear that song, the question comes again... I can't escape the idea that the emotion in there is exactly what a father is supposed to feel - the anticipation, the drive to protect, the pride...

      Anyway, I love your work. I can't wait to see what else you lot have for the rest of the season.

I'm working on a concert band version for fun and it would be much easier if I had the actual notes rather than just guessing. I know someone (I forget who) did the sheet music for volume 1 and 2 songs but idk how long that took and whatnot.

      Hey Mr. Williams! I wanted to thank you for inspiring me to take up writing lyrics and, by extension, composing music. Because of this, when I'm not writing lyrics complete originals, I practice by writing RWBY-based songs. People I've shown them to really seem to like them, and they keep recommending I should show them to you, so I got an account on here to ask if, uh, you wanted to see one?

      Hey Jeff, I want to send you a video that I made in my film editing class. I used stuff from RWBY to make an AMV. My teacher loves it and everyone that I have shown loves it too. I just wanted to see what you thought of it because I used your song Red Like Roses Part II. It's one of my favorite songs you have made for RWBY(but I like all the songs you do for Rooster Teeth as well) So if there is anyway I can get an email address from you, so that I can send you the video. I would just put the link in this message, but I might send it to AMV Contest's so I don't want it online yet until after I do that. So if there is a way I can send it to you let me know. Can't wait to hear what songs you have coming up next.

Would you mind to release that part of the lyric just like what you did for Red Like Roses Pt.2 I want it so badly, can't wait for that!

        No problem, Jeff. But, can I ask a quick question?

        If the question is: when's the soundtrack coming out? I want to know too.

        Cool glad you like it! you don't get a lot of minor 6/9 chords in rock/metal songs, so it's fun :)
