Katie’s Logic Song

After failing miserably at executing an original piece, I covered Adele’s “Someone Like You” as well as I could with the MIDI piano. I have a very soft singing voice, so I experienced some challenges with volume, gain, and distortion, but I had a lot of fun playing with the pitch and vibrato in Flex. The MIDI piano isn’t extremely realistic, but I shifted some of the audio effects to try and account for that. I almost used a clean preamp on my vocals, but ended up leaving it off to avoid any further complications. I feel like learned a lot more about how to use the features Logic has to offer, but I don’t think I did Adele justice. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Lyrics:

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you two
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

My website is http://kat-wolfe.com/

I’ve added an About Me bio page, a Contact page, a Social Media page, and a Music page. I hope to use all of these throughout the semester, but will post assignments for this class primarily in the Music page. I chose the About Me page to identify myself without cluttering the home page. I added the Social Media and Contact pages to enable communication, get feedback, and organize the social media platforms I designed for this class specifically. I’ve added a widget to enable comments on the Contact page, and used a Page Builder widget to customize the pages. I’ve learned tons working with WordPress, and look forward to expanding the site as we work on more assignments.
