Liner Notes: 

Had no intentions of making a song tonight - was simply creating a folder for all my 8-bit type stuff (@Victoria Quinn inspired me to start revisiting that stuff!). One thing led to another and this came out.
Just a mix of sugary pop and bop and whatever other cutesy words describe it.
Drums first and I just kept hearing "sweet" in my head and went sample diving.
Found a bunch and made some work for me here.
Put a simple piano four chord repeat to hold it together and really give it that sugarpop sound, some bass, and simple melodies.
Since I had just spent all that time organizing my 8-bit folder, I figured why not toss some into this song. So I did dat.
I like making this kind of stuff cause it actually is fun to do.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This has a delightfully cheesy sweet vibe that is addictive and uplifting! Love the vocal contrasts and their interplay.

Aah, you should never underestimate the power of fun when doing demos. I really can hear the energy and flow in this on. Nice sounds and cool clear production. I like the idea of mixing 8-bit synth sounds with pop-soul music, it works really well.

If I had time I'd take a closer look at this 8-bit thing. It seems to have possibilities for catchy pop music, it's like bubblegum for the new millennium. Smile

Of course, you had me right off with the beat! And then that “sweetie baby” thing hooked me further. Fun song to dance to!

Not just "fun to do," but tremendously fun to listen to. Such a relaxed but poppy groove, with the delicate plink of the synths and the little vocal snippets floating around; it's all a delightfully sugary, bouncy delight!
