It will be interesting to hear your opinions on the songs sent to Podnebesnaya.

5 first disсs to check here! (http://www.podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/songs/mp3.html).

A song for t.A.T.u. maybe? :D

There's one sent by Fly Dream from this forum. It's called Between Life And Death. Download mp3 (http://www.podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK5/Track12.mp3).

You already know my favourite song there:

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK3/Track02.mp3

It's really cool!

Oooh!!! I really like Fly Dreams song too! I think these two are two of the best that I've listened too. The one by fly dream has a better music track. Actually, I think the fly dream one is my new favourite!!!!! Has flydream recorded anything else? I could imagine Lena singing it and Yulia in the background. Yulia's vocals would go really well as a compliment!

What, there are a hundred songs in there!

I've heard a few from the first bunch and nothing too exciting. Most of them sound too folkish for t.A.T.u, others too boring. And there are no rock songs I came across yet, it seems the Russians can only do folk and techno :D

The Fly Dream is a decent one - but not for t.A.T.u.
Perhaps for TATY?? ;)

Actually it is a bit of a torture having to listen to some of them, so now I stop.
From what I've listened so far the answer is no.

Yeah, they should really post it in .rm .asf or .wmv streaming format. It's too slow to download all those songs! I've only listened to some.

I've heard all of the demos which are available at http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/songs/mp3.html .

I came to conclusion that some of them, if remastered, could be great hits. There's lots of good material to start with. So I don't understand how Ivan can say they have little material. With someone writing good lyrics (like Polienko) and a good producer, you can grab some of these demos and turn them into great hits. Obviously Shapovalov doesn't have what it takes to do that - or he might not show what he's up to when it concerns making songs for the new album.

Anyway, I've added here a list of my favorite tracks from all the ones I've heard, which I think are worth checking out.

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK1/Track04.mp3 - bad demo, but good composition.
http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK1/Track06.mp3 - GREAT composition
http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK1/Track11.mp3 - could be remade into an awesome emotional rock-trance track
http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK1/Track12.mp3 - I have no idea of what he is saying in russian, but the composition doesn't sound bad, and it's catchy. Could also turn out good if remastered to a rock beat mixed with some trance synths.
http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK2/Track01.mp3 - here I also don't know if the lyrics are good or not, but the composition is good and when careful remastered to rock-trance it could be a really powerfull track.

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK2/Track12.mp3 - ok, I know that this demo sounds like some 80's Pet Shop Boys song... :laugh: But, I think it could be remade into a good base for a nice chorus for a t.A.T.u. song - the type of ATTSS / NNG, with powerful and fast rock beats and that techno synth.

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK2/Track15.mp3 - horrible demo, the lyrics are probably not brilliant, but the rhythm and the singing style definately fits t.A.T.u's style

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK3/Track08.mp3 - if this was remastered into a faster techno-rock version, with a more powerful vibe to it, it could be a sort of NNG-type song

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK3/Track12.mp3 - could be a GREAT track for t.A.T.u.'s comeback

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK4/Track06.mp3 - could also be used for a nice rock ballad a la "Nichya"-style

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK4/Track07.mp3 - change the lyrics, remaster the song adding powerful rock beats, add Yulia and Lena's voices and a more agressive singing to this one and it could turn out good

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK4/Track18.mp3 - the demo has a sort of latino vibe at times, probably due to lack of other musical sources. removing it and adding a darker side to it, some trance synths and strong rock beats with powerful lyrics - could an ATTSS-successor

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK5/Track12.mp3 - the singer sounds like Lena Kiper. I don't understand the lyrics, but the composition is really good. Awesome beats on the 2nd half of the song.

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK5/Track13.mp3 - could be remastered into a fast agressive rock-trance track with a repetitive chorus

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK5/Track16.mp3 - good demo to create a song like "Stars". I think this would sound great with some rap inbetween the piano parts, and also with some oriental vibe to it.

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK6/Track04.mp3 - weird, but could be worth remastering, speed it up (this version is too slow, needs to be faster to bring more emotion) and add strong rock beats, could be nice with Yulia and Lena's voices

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK6/Track05.mp3 - could work very well with the girls' voices. I don't know if the lyrics are any good, but the music is interesting, has a lot of power


Now some weird stuff:

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK2/Track03.mp3 - doesn't the first part of this song remind of "I Vse Normalno"?? The way it's sung, it's pretty much the same... (horrible voice, btw LOL)

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK3/Track09.mp3 - WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! :lol: WEIRD!!

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK5/Track07.mp3 - Hello? You're making a demo for t.A.T.u., not RICKY MARTIN :rolleyes:

http://podnebesnaya.rambler.ru/avi/tatu/Albums/DISK5/Track09.mp3 - I don't know why, but this reminds of a mixture of the Halloween movie theme + "Nichya" by Nichya... :confused:



So, if you have any opinions on any of these tracks, go ahead and share your comments! :done:

Also feel free to add some tracks you consider good. :D


P.S. On a more personal note, I'd love to hear Lena singing this song

i noticed some of you liked "Track12" so i decided to post the lyrics ;)

-translation
Fly_Dream feat. Xenia "Between life and death"

Let me go!
When my soul strives to the sky
Where the birds fly behind the clouds
Where dreams come to life at sunrise
And I have wings on my back...
Please, forgive!
When my soul strives to the sky
Where the birds are behind the clouds
Where dreams come to life at sunrise
I'll close my eyes and I'll fly
To the sky...
Higher...
To the sky...
Higher...

Wait!
Till the wind touches my hand
I'll push off the ground
And I'll fly, I'll become a part of the sunrise
Between life and dreams
Please don't go!
I'll push off the ground
And I'll fly, I'll become a part of the sunrise
Between life and dreams
I'll open my eyes to see the...

The night
Will fall down on earth
All thoughts are swept away
The rain
Someone calls me
The one, who won't ask

Rain...

Rain...

Someone calls me...

The night
Will fall down on earth
All thoughts are swept away
The rain
Someone calls me
The one, who won't ask


-and the transliteration since i don't have the original russian...

Otpusti
Kagda dusha maya rvyoza v nebo
Tuda gde ptizi za oblakami
Gde ozhivayut mechti s rassvetom
Gde dva krila za plechami
Prosti
Kagda dusha moya rvyoza v nebo
Tuda gde ptizi za oblakami
Gde ozhivayut mechti s rassvetam
Glaza zakroyu rukami i
V neeeebo
Viiiiiishe
V neeeeeebo
Viiiiiiishe

Podazhdi
Kagda ruki moej kosneza veter
Ya ottolknus ot zemli nogami
I ulichu stanu chastyu rassveta
Mezhdu zhiznyu i snami
Postoj
Ya ottolknus ot zemli nogami
Ya uletayu i stanu rassvetom
I mezhdu zhiznyu i vsemi mechtami
Glaza atkroyu chtob vstretit...

Noch'
Tiho na zemlu upadyot
Misli unosit
Dozhd'
Kto-to menya s soboy zavyot
Tot kto ne sprosit...

What's that? Enya singing in Celtic? Common, be a little more realistic will ya? Lena can't cut it ;)

Some instrumental demos are ok but need a vocal line. While the complete songs are unsuitable.

:laugh: I have no idea, maybe it's russian :hmmm:

Well of course lots of demos need vocals, but that's the producer's / writers / singer's work, not the fans.

Anyway, Lena's voice is perfect for that song I mentioned :P She totally fits that style :love:

Not just vocals. They need an supplementary musical line, that's what I mean. I don't know if it makes sense.

I didn't listen to any of those demos, but, honestly, I don't think fans are the right composers. A good song will be made only by someone who is neutral towards Tatu.
