I am a loser (Music video)

Post by Santhosh CHRiS »

A song and video inspired by own life situation from the bottom of my heart. Dedicated to everyone who thinks they're a loser when in fact they're just a winner wearing a mask :)

You can see the Flash version here

You can download the song here...

Thanks for watching and be sure to please leave a comment on Youtube or a review at Newgrounds if you can! I really hope it can inspire you in some way to keep goin no matter what and always be open with your emotions in life!

Wow it just got frontpaged on Newgrounds. Can't believe all the comments on Youtube, reviews and emails... my fingers are getting numb from replying them all HELP!! Lol... I'd say it's well on it's way to become my next big hit. Haven't had one for years ha ha..

But the best part of all this is my dad just emailed me that he actually REALLY liked it and he's always been my toughest critic. I don't think he's been much impressed with my music videos since Back to the start Mario lol

(Sigh) Wish I could share this moment with the girl I wrote it for :(

Thank you so much Caleb! To be frank I expected it to be an utter flop but WOW! The song currently ranks no.25 best songs! Can't believe the feedback from everyone and how it connects with them. But none of that matters as much as reading stuff from DGF members.

Btw I saw your comment on the Youtube Wally. Replied to it. If any other DGF member left a comment or review plz let me know which id and when :)

Hey!

My name is Tor-Erik and i want to use your song: I am a loser, in a non-profit school project film.

we will give you credit for the music and we will not make any money on it.

so can we please use your song without you sending your lawyers after us?

i would appreciate an answer asap.

If you want more info about the film and etc, you can feel free to ask on this e-mail.

Cheers, Tor-Erik.

Can't believe this is gonna reach 50,000 views on YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CLhj0O5aDE

Also collectively nearing 100k if u include other sites it was featured on Dailymotion, Newgrounds, Albinoblacksheep, etc. Hard to imagine I wrote half the song in the bathroom... don't ask which half :laugh:

The video itself was laid out to me in a weird dream half awake state where I suddenly got up from my bed in the middle of the night went to the empty room upstairs and with a sudden vision knew exactly what I wanted it to be like... i decided to take a day off work the next couple of days told my boss and began work went to the nearby store to get some tape and string. The store had just opened for business and had a good chat with the store owner. He had studied Zoology and wanted to find another job but meanwhile this would be his earning a living.. Good times :)
