It definitely ranks up there in my book. Not quite Dreaming of Falling Skies, but very similar in tone.

Great job.

First song I ever heard on here! Heard it first in a keygen by CRUDE, and then found out that Swallow and DaMac are the real artists and want to give credit where it is due.

This song is great !!! At the the beginning the song is quiet, peaceful and relaxing then the next thing you hear is a simple but effective pop-like tune

i love especially the beginning; haunting and beautiful, and the bird songs...the next part is jubilant, exploding into celebration; i like that, too. you have written a good solid piece; i like it very much, but wish i could spend more time with each "section"!! thank you for making my heart smile today.

Amazing guitar work! Maybe is a little bit short, but great!

The beginning and end are really good. The guitar sounds very realistic. The middle part is ok, but the drums are a little weird. The last part of the middle part is pretty nice. I first heard a remix of this and thought that was good. This is even better! Good job!

A very nice module, one of the nicest I know. The guitar in the intro leads nicely to the fast and bassy techno tune! I have to agree, you really have to listen to this one!

"Butterfly Flew Away" is one of the most recognized tunes in the tracker community. An instant classic with an advanced guitar and demostyle sound, this tune is on my "ten-tracked-tunes-you-must-hear" list. Awesome!

Beautiful acoustic/electric guitar work. Exellent melody. Not repetitive. A bit short tho' Seems to capture the story told by the artist in the instrument comments. This should be burned in a CD! Great song, very good for a game intro! The artist combines a bunch of guitar samples to create a realistic melody. Sample quality is good 8bit. Fancy stereo panning on the instuments give the song a cool surround feel. First time I see one of those Atari2600 samples (beeps) be put to god use!

  Butterfly Flew Away

_  Damac & Swallow _
for The Party 5
multi-channel music

Once upon a time there
was a man who had no
One day he was sitting
on the grass of the
huge park.
Suddenly the butterfly
landed onto his hand,
and started to talk to
"I came from heaven
and have you a messa
ge. Do not ever break
the wings of butterfly
or I will punish you
harder than anyone
Suddenly the butterfly
disappeared as fast
as it had appeared.
The man thought
a while and understood
the meaning of life.
After that he was nev
er lonely or depressed
