Time to Let Go - Funky Lowlives

Post by tendra91 on Sun Sep 20, 2009 3:49 am

Hey all,

I was listening to this one piece of music called "Time to let go" by The Funky Lowlives and it just reminded me the time in your life where you have to let go of everything you love dearly and move on with your life. And I know the HxA pairing has an aspect to them where the first part of their relationship (i.e. before Arnold moves away) kind of has this "doomed-from-the-start" feeling, where Arnold is eventually going to have to say good-bye to Helga when he moves away. So this song kind of reminds me of that, and the other things that Arnold has to say good-bye to such as his old friends.

And before I go on, please listen to it on imeem (http://www.imeem.com/girlnextshore/music/8-wR7yjO/the-funky-lowlives-time-to-let-go/) or Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9xL-_iCh48).

So I kind of noticed 4 parts to the song, even though it doesn't have words:

1) When it's only the guitar(s) playing, you feel this sad mood, which is like when you initially say good-bye.

2) When the drums start, you feel like the person is walking around alone, just missing the person they said good-bye to.

3) Around 1:00, the guitars play again and it feels like the person is reminsicing about their times together.

4) Around 1:30 the tune starts to get a little up-beat and light-hearted, and it just reminds me of the quote, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened"

So I thought it was a pretty good song to reflect that part of one's life, and I was hoping we could make something of it (someday), like a short music video or even merge it with michi_6278's playlist idea (http://community.livejournal.com/hey_arnold/121795.html).

I know this is outside of the 6th season spectrum, but maybe it can be something like a bonus video or something? Just throwing up an idea.

Also, I'm not sure if this appropriate for the "Ads" vs. "Misc." sub-forum, so if it becomes unsuitable for the "Ads" sub-forum, I'll move it to the "Misc" or even make an additional sub-forum for something like "Bonus Features".

I really like it and think it would be fun if we could do something with it.
I listened to it on youtube and I really love the strings that come into the song at about 1:42 and 3:50. I've always liked the stringed instruments, especially the lower ones like the cello and the upright bass.

I also think that a Bonus Features sub-forum would be appropriate if there's enough interest, but this could also potentially be worked into an advertisement.
