My song about Skydiving-based on your information Can't Post

Hey happy people
A while ago I started this http://www.dropzone.com/...9;page=unread#unread thread about a skydiving song. Some of you provided me with great information. So I want to inform you that the song is ready. The lyrics are mainly based on the following information by some of you members:

wmw999: On the plane trip up, new people more so than experienced (at least from what I hear) get tenser and tenser on the way up. Right before exit there's that feeling of delicious anticipation when all of the senses are pretty peaked with anticipation for the jump that's just about to happen.

CygnusX-1 What do you think of just before you take a step out?
UP - DOWN - OUT
or
READY - SET - GO


PeregrineFalcon I'm relaxed. Getting my helmet and goggles on, I'm elated. Slapping the hands of the skydivers right before the green light, I feel brotherly. Then the door opens and...UNPARALLED excitement.

sacamaca...If I really had to use words they would be: amazing, liberating, exhilarating, breathtaking....Without the spark of any distraction that you normally deal with every minute of your everyday life

Baksteen:
a skydiver who jumps from 12.000 feet and...Many special terms are listed here.

besides that information I have also of course added my own vision of skydiving, so here is the final result:
I hope you enjoy the song, and if you don't well you only need to turn off the stereo :)

and to show my appreciation I give a shout to your lovely community at the end of the song. thanks again

Yea, I'm in a song for the first time! Beer!

I, of course, will require my standard royalty of free back stage passes to any concert you have in Florida. Wink

Too bad I'm at work and can't listen to it here.

Nicely done! It may be the style or the effects, but I can only understand about half the lyrics, so you might make those available, since they are based on some things you have received from your fellow jumpers.

This is great. I think we should all go donate a dollar or two to someone who took the time to get our insights and put it into a song.

Jonay,

Great Work Man!! I really liked it. Now all you have to do is go make a jump and then add the song to your tandem video. How cool would that be. good job.

I liked it.

As I listened I tried to picture working that into my tandem videos... and struggled with a song to complement this one on the video...

So, my only recourse is to ask that you make another to go with this one!! Smile

The second one should be about skydivers rather than skydiving ;-)

I love the song. You did an Awesome job. I left you a little review on Jamendo and gave it a 10 rating.

Just found your song, while looking for royalty free songs.

It is really good, and I must say for someone who hasn't jumped it really captures the mood well. Smile

Hi guys.
Six years ago I created the song skydiving thanks to you.
Well it only took me six years to get the courage to try skydiving for the first time. The time has come. This Sunday I will skydive in Queenstown, NZ :)

Best regards

Have a great time on your jump.

I saw on your webpage you had "7 things to do on Oahu." You left out the best one. Go make a tandem jump on the North Shore. Cool

If you're there next month, come over to Pacific and I'll take you on your 2nd tandem. Smile

My jump has been cancelled three days due to weather conditions. Tomorrow is my last attempt before I fly to Melbourne. I really hope I will be able to jump before I leave town.
The anticlimax after each cancellation...


Next time I'm in Oahu I let you know! I was so focused on surfing I never considered to be a great spot for jumping!:)

Re: [Baksteen] My song about Skydiving-based on your information [In reply to] Can't Post

I finally did it!
On the 4th attempt, the weather conditions were perfect in Queenstown!
The feeling was crazy. Just before the jump, when the door opened and the actual freefall is by far the most awesome feeling I have experienced! :)
I was pretty nervous on plane ride up though! :)
But now I can relate to my own song!
It was also really flattering that my jump master was a fan of the song!
