Soundtrack Gamut, Vol. 4 - Marches-A-Go-Go

Well, just in time for the Fourth of July (here's hoping I can come in before that to post this), I thought I'd make up this compilation. This is another one of those ultimate rush jobs because I only thought of doing it over the weekend, so again didn't have a lot of time to polish it up, but it'll just have to do.

As with the Cannibals-A-Go-Go compilation, there's really no 'Go-Go' here, but you get the idea.

When I thought of doing something for Independence Day, I thought about doing patriotic songs and/or music, etc., but I didn't really have time to do a good one and I figure a lot of people will probably be posting those (and much better ones too!), so I opted against it. In fact, I remember a great patriotic compilation Lazar at Lazar's Lounge posted a long time ago that may still be available.

Of course, what does a march compilation have to do with the Fourth of July? It's probably better suited to Memorial Day or even Veteran's Day (or possibly Everyone-Walk-In-Unison Day), but it seemed right somehow.

And there are so many great marches you could choose from, you could probably do five volumes. In fact, I like to think of this compilation as part of my 'Lazy Series' (you could think of this as Lazy Series, Vol. 1....hopefully, there will be more installments to come). Those are ones where I don't have to think too much, pretty much anyone can come up with them in their sleep, and no one really needs me to do them. Now that I think about it, there are probably quite a few of those comps on the blog already, but, well, here's another one.

Originally, Soundtrack Gamut, Vol. 4 was going to be Crime and Punishment, but I stopped working on that one. Actually, one of the only reasons I started that one was to fulfill Jordan's request for some music from 'Harry In Your Pocket', but 'Filmpac' generously posted the entire soundtrack, so I sort of lost interest in finishing it. It didn't seem as good as the Mystery or Spy comps anyway which is why I was never too motivated to work on it, but maybe I'll finish it sometime later when I get inspired (and yes, that falls into the category of 'no one but me cares', but so does the entire blog really, so why should this be any different?).

You know it's interesting (well, to me anyway), but when it comes time to do some of these comps, the selection and order of the tracks comes very quickly, but it's all the clean-up work that I hate to do and that's what drags them out. If I were just making these up for my own listening pleasure without posting them, then my tendency is to listen to them several times and if for instance, there's something I don't like, some transition that bothers me, or some track that's not so interesting, I change it around over a long period of time. So these things sit on my hard drive until I can listen to them many times or just because I don't want to clean them up.

But when I want to post one on the blog for some special occasion and I do it very quickly, that whole process gets compressed into a very short space of time. I end up listening to some of these 3 or 4 times in the space of a day or two. So ironically, picking the tracks to use is very easy, but it's smoothing them out to get a finished product that's the exhausting part. Just normalizing the tracks alone can take a long time! For my own listening pleasure, I can live with a few variances in volume and quality, but when you think about a blog post that goes out to everyone else and that you can't change once it's finished, then you hate to upload a file where one track is five times louder than the next one or you've accidentally tagged it with the name 'Gerry Joldsmith'. But that's probably just my anal retentive nature. I suppose if you've got to retain something though, that's probably a good choice. Otherwise it just makes it hard to eat (not to mention all the mess involved).

Well, you should enjoy this if you want to celebrate American Independence, if you want to listen to some good music, or if you just feel like walking in cadence!

nomwl1,

I need serious help getting started here.
I've downloaded a lot of tracks off of other sites here, I have a few odd CD's, and I still don't know how to hook my computer up to my Hi-Fi for downloading music into all the software I bought and still don't really know how to use.
Oh, I've done a few wav's and .ram files donverted, but even at that it's a start.
Who do I upload to? I know there are a LOT of sites I've downloaded from, and it doesn't hurt to have more than one. Sendfile, I have knotices is quick. I don't like megaupload, I think rapidshare is just to all common.
I download 3 or 4 albums simultaneosly when I can access a different server. Otherwise I have to wait an hour two hours or 6, depending on my use on that server.
Isn't that like mega work on the upload side? Providing maybe (at least 2 diferent servers to upload from?)
I know as a downloader it's great to have options.
The other item I wanted to mention was here. Blogger. I can't seem to delete a post from YOUKNOWWHO.
I'd like to edit out specific threads or posts if I can without wiping out the entire Blog post. Is that possible?
Yea, call me a Greenhorn, but this buck learns pretty quick.
So If you can send some q-tippers my way (via personal email ~ riverratt_@hotmail.com), that would be great. I have to write this here because there doesn't seem to be an internal system for communication in email that I can see.
Looking for some more enlightenment and a few straight shooting points before I take the plunge.
Thanks Dad,
River
 
Thanks a lot. I was looking for some of these and couldn't find then in my country(Iran).
