Description

This is a side project that I suddenly started working on while still working on my fifth original "Get back up on your feet". It took me one day to write off the lyrics, one day to engineer the track, and a couple of scattered days to lay the rap and finish up the rough edges. Now I can get back to my original project. The reason why I made this song is because I always loved Hayley's chorus and felt that Bobby Ray's rap ruins the mood. It might still be good rapping from a rapster's point of view, but the view of a complete artist, it just doesn't fit the theme. Every time I hear the song I feel like Hayley is trying to tell us something. Making a wish under the midnight sky sets a soft and dreamy mood, and 'Airplanes instead of Shooting Stars' always reminded me of how industrial our world became and how the good old days were mellower and simpler. And B.o.B's lyrics seemed to drift way too far from that in meaning and theme. His attitude in rapping does NOT fit the mood of the song, it's supposed to be a nice and dreamy song, not loud and jumpy. And his lyrics are too disconnected from what Hayley's chorus is saying, especially at the part where he goes "airplanes airplanes sorry i'm late, i'm on my way so don't close that gate". So what I did is take Hayley's chorus, wrote off my own rap, and laid everything on a fresh track that I constructed as a close replica from the original song but adding my own rap-rock elements to it. Hope you enjoy.
