Concept albums versus Concept singles

Hi folks

After my first 2 albums made quite fastly, I am still stuck on my 3rd one

The problem is that I am not a Pro, and I don’t have time and inspiration enough to complete the task

I have one concept in mind, that is a series of funny stories about hens and cocks, but creating many stories and putting all the stuff together ended to be a nightmare

This is why I thought to do Concept singles instead: this way I have to create just one story for each song, and I can also give free rein to my creativity with different topics

Moreover, composing single tracks is also more in vogue nowadays :grin: :rofl:
and I’ve also a suitable matching “picture” to show

Pandilla-piccolo

What do you think about?

Concept singles are a great idea, and many famous bands have used this as an approach. I believe that one of the most famous concept singles was Maxwell’s Silver Hammer (yep The Beatles), so go for it.

hahaha, good point indeed

Don’t we all that is those of us with hair?

I didnt use hair gel when I had hair. I went more for the headbanger look. This is the mugshot taken 30 years ago when arrested for violating the city’s night noise ordinance just because I played my music at 100db at 2am :laughing:

In the seventies with my usual smooth hair

in the eighties with my curly hair and a strange beard

eighties: Long hairs

Well, I did in the sixth form at school in 1961 … or as it then was ‘Brylcreem’


By '64, I just let it flop
c1964
By 1970 the signs were on the wall (or should I say bare skin)
1970

… and by 2004 sunburn was a challenge… but it gave me slightly more ‘gravitas’ in business meetings (pictured here making some point forcefully)


and in 20015, not much change, and I broadly look like this today

( …notice the immaculate “double Windsor” tie knots…)

I suspect you received an un-aleatory fine for that
:grin:


1974 or so. Currently, my pandemic haircut means even longer hairs that this. Only the top is missing :rofl:


Somewhere in the '70s.


Preparations for the Prom ball.

These photographic blasts from the past are wonderful
I love them

Yeah for sure, it’s great to be able to have an image in mind of how fellow Scaler users used to look , ahem, …before using Scaler :rofl:

Some photos of me Before and After Scaler
Not to discredit Scaler, of course, but I think I looked a little better before Scaler, :laughing: :smiley: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: :laughing: :rofl: :rofl:


:grinning: :grinning: Instead of 2017 I wrote 20017. I suppose that by then baroque music will continue to be played, right?
Miki, I still have my hair, although, as you can see, it’s a different color.

Oh, yes. Just to remind us that it still exists. The return of Big Bad Snow. Hm, not bad as a title for a song.

Well, to make an album, it’s best to focus first on making a single, and then another, and etc…
Thanks to Miki’s inspiration, I have finished this single. Title and photo are yours.
This is the chord file in Scaler:

And this is the link to the song:

I use Scaler, of course. I also send the chords to Chordpotion and from there to several tracks with the new Augmented Strings Intro by Arturia and to 2 instances of Opus Orchestrator.
I hope you like it. Thank you, Miki.
