[Solo] IU - Riding The Train

Postby Tuan » Thu Oct 17, 2013 7:22 am

Was in the mood for singing tonight :). This was pretty much a one take since I didn't really want to record until I was tired of singing again >.>. I've loved this song since I first heard it, and I don't even think the first person I heard it from was IU (It was a cover from a youtuber).

"Rode the train not knowing where it’ll go
Hurt by the breakup, I recklessly took the train to look for a deserted place
The beach outside the window, I wiped my tears, I’ll be back again after 1, 2, 3…
I turned my head, recalling our faded love, I don’t wanna cry anymore
So I want to accept, so now I take the train to forget you
Nobody knows, only you know about this sad breakup trip
I love you so much I’d rather hate you, it takes so much strength. I don’t wanna cry anymore
So I want to accept, so now I take the train to forget you
A new white winter I take the train to forget you"

See you sing and sing well so why you want to leave uuuus, you have to stay here and make lots of collabs! qq
You sound so breakable and clear at the higher parts in the verses, they sound very good :3
It sounds very emotional, me likeys though I think at some points a bit power into the breakable-emotional-parts would've sounded a bit better :) But it already sounds good like this ^^

Thanks for listening Cho :) I was singing at 12 AM and my parents were sleeping next door x_X. But either way I wanted it to sound weak and breakable instead of adding power haha. Sometimes I get in the mood to sing, but then that time is never when I need to record :(. And I get so frustrated with trying to make it sound perfect to my ears, which become less reliable the more I rerecord >.>.

What do I read? You want to leave us? O__O DON'T!!!! Q______Q
I don't know the song but the beginning was so beautiful ;_____; Gave me goosebumps!
There were some notes which were slightly off (those were you go higher and then lower and higher again) but those notes where you go high suddenly were soo nice <3 And the end was just perfect imo!
Don't even dare to stop singing ok?! TOT (we haven't had a duet yet! D< )

This sounds very, very beautiful. The very soft notes are so intimate, it breaks your heart ;;

I understand that leading projects or even only participating in them, sticking to deadlines and all that stuff can sometimes put too much pressure on yourself or get you stressed out, especially when you don't have that much time and you don't want to disappoint anyone, or disappoint yourself when all that you can produce under pressure are lines you aren't satisfied with. So I wouldn't say "stay with us" if you don't enjoy it or you can't enjoy it as much as you would like to. But please don't stop singng, even if you take a break from BR. Your voice has such a naturally beautiful tone and with the right amount of training it could turn out really, really great. So please, either way, keep on singing.. and maybe come back every once in a while with a solo you really felt like doing~

This is so beautiful~ I love your emotion here. <3 There is one little pitch-problem the first time the verse progresses to the chorus, but then you seem to get into the song even more and you're very stable. I like how you sang this in your own style too and that you didn't pressure yourself into adding more power because like this you sound very comfortable. I want to hug you don't be saaaad This is definitely my favorite cover of yours so far! (* *)

I listened to this. I did listen to this when you posted it, but then had to leave the wifi place I was in and when I had wifi again like 10 days later, commenting didn't happen for whatever reason.

I enjoyed this very much, because there is so much soul to it. It is audible in your voice that you really understand this song and you sound very soft and just above breaking in some parts. Although it is hard to you to be content with your recordings (I understand that very well), the result of this one I really love. Hwaiting.

I really like IU, and this song is one of my favorite <3

I think you put a lot of emotional weight in this song when you sing, and that is really, really lovely cause it does give the song a bit more body. There's a few slight pitch problems, but nothing too major.
Kudos on the song, overall :D I enjoyed listening to you.
