SKY'S THE LIMIT ~Original Swat Kats Song~ by Jayhan

Hey everybody! I thought I'd share an original song I wrote to promote the Swat Kats' comeback and to raise awareness on the Swat Kats: Revolution kickstarter project. I tried to compose it in a style similar to the original Swat Kats theme song, but changed it to emote this nostalgic, reminiscent and longing feeling that we get when we think of the Swat Kats' return.
The best part is that I showed it to Charlie Adler, aka the voice of T-Bone. He said he loved it. :3 (seriously, that made my day hahah)
Let me know what you guys think and enjoy!

PS: If there are any Swat Kats fans that are musically gifted and interested in redoing this song with me, hit me up! ;D

LYRICS:

Yeaaaah!
Woah! Yeah!

4... 3... 2... 1!

We are back!
From the ashes we rise and through the air
we soar once more
We've never felt more alive

Hear the engines roar
We've crashed and burned, but that's never stopped us
from fighting back
We've got nothing more to lose

Beyond that airstrip, within the twilight
Worlds collide like thunderblasts
the countdown to Armageddon has begun

4... 3... 2... 1!

All systems go! Let's rock and roll!
Charging through the runway at turbo speed
Dig deep inside and take off into the crimson skies!

Weapon systems on! Lock and load!
Taking down the enemies one by one.
We'll be here when Judgment Day comes!

Our sky's the limit, so we'll make this our best shot!

That's really impressive, and catchy, too :D

Did you do everything yourself and mix it together in post production, or do you have a group/band to work with?

Thanks! Yeah, I did everything on my own. Would love to work with a band; I do collaborations from time to time, but the people I work with come from around the globe. Can't find people in my area who motivated enough to work on last-minute or ambitious projects, unfortuantely. :/

But hey, if you think it's catchy, then I'm happy with what I've done, hahah ;D

Dude. This is super impressive. I totally recommend that you share this with the creators on through their kickstarter (or as someone to plug it to them) because they're audiophiles and listen to fan renditions of SWAT Kats tunes.

Dang, tho. You're making me wanna like, do more SK video editing to mash up with your music.

Thanks! Yeah, I think I'll try to share it on their page, just for funsies. :3

Hey, if it inspires you, you can do whatever you want with the music; I've put up a download link on the video for those who'd love to have the MP3 on their phone or if they want to make a music video out of it.

It was made by a SK fan for SK fans. That's how much I appreciate the SK community. :D

Also, on what page do you share these things with the creators?

Yes, 'tis I. But I'm still learning, hahah xD. Thanks, I really aimed for that 80s-90s feel, so I'm glad you felt that! :D

Well, I just shared this on the main kickstarter page yesterday. It's really the only place to go.

The best part? I got a response 2-3 hours later! :D :D :D (GAH YEEEESSSSS, THEY'VE SEEN IT, YEEEESSSS!!! THANKS BETARUGA FOR SUGGESTING THAT I SHARE IT!!!!! *dies happy*)
