ok grandma let's get you back to bed

I adore Bonnie, and have been a diehard fan of hers forever, butĀ I think one of the biggest things holding her back is constantly comparing herself to her peers. She had a record deal, then lost it. S

Ok, so I'm adding ALL the songs registered on Bonnie's ASCAP/BMI to the list because I get the impression y'all really like the encyclopedic information regarding song creditsĀ and release datesĀ and al

That's just 'cause I'm lazy and haven't made one myself, but it does slap tbh

Love this, I'm gonna be using it. How many songs are out there? and are y'all adding Sleepwalker?

I storedĀ Dressed To Kill, Ferocious, Ressurection and Sleepwalker as an ā€˜EPā€™ a while ago. I know Sleepwalker is part of theĀ EpicĀ stuff but I just thought it would fit better amongst those ones.

I donā€™t like Looking 4 Trouble so Iā€™m not even gonna download it šŸ„“

Since this thread is dying, let's discuss our final tracklists for the Epic album and why we chose it. I decided to name itĀ Electric Heaven, and after sitting on it for a few weeks, this is my final tracklist:

  1. American Girl
  2. Electric Heaven
  3. S.L.A.Y.
  4. Jenny's Got A Boyfriend
  5. Hot City
  6. Bombastic*** (to be replaced with Right Now when it leaks)
  7. I Wanna Fucking Call You
  8. My So-Called Life
  9. Somebody's Gonna Get Hurt
  10. Rewind Your Heart
  11. Everything But You
  12. Outlaw*** (to be replaced with Hit Me Up when it leaks)
  13. Restless (I've heard that this is from the Bombastic sessions, but it fits the Epic album perfectly)
  14. Waking Up Diagonal
  15. Easy*** (to be replaced with Forever 21 when it leaks)

I'm using Bombastic, Outlaw, and Easy as filler tracks until we finally get the final few songs from the Epic sessions to leak. Apparently Outlaw was on the whiteboard from thatĀ one interview, but it doesn't really fit the album sonically or lyrically so I'm putting it on my second Bonnie album. The middle of the album is kinda introspective with MSCL, SGGH, and RYH back to back but I like it like that. A lot of people I've mentioned it to don't like Forever 21 as the closing track, but I feel that it perfectly sums up the carefree nature of the album that Bonnie was aiming for. I couldn't imagine a different song closing the album.

I'm also working on a second Bonnie album. It's primarily composed of unreleased songs that I like but don't fit theĀ Electric HeavenĀ concept that I was aiming for. It doesn't really have a unified sound or theme so it has songs ranging from 2009-2018 on it.

Mine is as follows:

With Forever 21 as track 3, which remains unleaked. When/if it leaks, I'll add it. I think there's a great story going from Hot City until Rewind Your Heart, arranged that way:

Tracks 1 (American Girl) and 2Ā (S.L.A.Y.) both kinda set the mood for the record, and track 3 (Forever 21) in an extent as well: this thing of having fun, being young, falling in love, feeling powerful, being the best you can and live your life. Such a mood. Then, you hang out with friends (Hot City) and meet your friend Jenny's boyfriend, who you get a crush onĀ (Jenny's Got a Boyfriend), but as it's an infatuation that will not end well, you decide not to make a move, as much as you want to (I Wanna Fucking Call You). The feeling is not gone, and you kinda give in to it, so things begin to flow between you and Jenny's boyfriendĀ (Electric Heaven), but then reality hits after something goes wrong as he leaves (Everything But You) and the relationship eventually endsĀ (Somebody's Gonna Get Hurt). After the downfall of the relationship, you'd wish everything was like the now-gone good moments (Rewind Your Heart), but as it's not gonna happen, you just step away and get to know more people, so you get to know this guy to have a more casual affair with, but it's fun (Unlock Your LoveĀ and, to an extent,Ā OutlawĀ - in the frame of talking of a past exclusive formal relationship and now you have the complete freedomĀ to meet anyone you want), in the process of forgetting how the last relationship went and you've moved on (Waking Up Diagonal). The last track (Don't Get Mad, Get Famous) felt good as a closing song as it takes again the same powerful streak of the first three songs, so the story takes a sort of cycle-closing ending.

P.S. I ended up writing everything as ifĀ youĀ are Bonnie but it's just how I'd explain her how I pictured the album's plot if it was ordered this way. // I think that, with this story, Sexin U could fit between Unlock Your Love and Outlaw, but that will keep making the album longer than I want it to be so I'll leave it for an Epic additional EP.

Of course I have more Bonnie albums, but this is the one I'm proud of the most, and also the one I love the most, if it's not evident enough :cackle:Ā the other one I really like is the one I callĀ Wild at Heart, from the 2014-16 sessions including theĀ Bombastic EP. I'm very OCD with eras so that's why I parted her discography into 12-14 track albums, leaving out those I'm not too fond of. I'm still working on an Epic companion EP, with some outtakes from the main album.

I also was finally able to make a better Electric Heaven remaster, and I really like how it turned out! Enjoy in mp3 and WAV.

Just in case you wonder how it changes, it sounds more balanced. This is the original leak's waveforms:

And this is the remastered waveforms:

So essentially it sounds louder, but not only more punchy. It's more balanced so the verses sound louder and the choruses don't punch much over her vocals.

Eu tambĆ©m finalmente consegui fazer uma remasterizaĆ§Ć£o de Electric Heaven melhor, e eu realmente gostei de como ficou! Desfrute em mp3 e WAV .

Apenas no caso de vocĆŖ se perguntar como isso muda, soa mais equilibrado. Esta Ć© a forma de onda do vazamento original:

E estas sĆ£o as formas de onda remasterizadas:

2022-01-19-1.png

EntĆ£o, essencialmente, soa mais alto, mas nĆ£o apenas mais forte. Ɖ mais equilibrado, entĆ£o os versos soam mais altos e os refrƵes nĆ£o soam muito sobre seus vocais.

Mine is Electric Heaven (title), Hot City, Donā€™t Get Mad (Get Famous), SLAY, Waking Up Diagonal, Sexin U, IWFCU, JGAB, SGGH, Everything But U and Rewind Your Heart.Ā 
Forever 21, Right Now and Hit Me Up will join the main album one day.Ā 
I also have b-side album with Love You To Pieces, My So-Called Life, Outlaw, Hitman, Unlock Your Love, Trash Television and Sabotage. These last two are not epic sessions but I had no idea where to put themĀ :hottie:
