Nisco R : You forgot the main part of what makes it nostalgic: cutting off high frequency content so it sounds like it’s an old recording

FlyingYak ________________ : Yea ima give up composing till I learn music theory

Nathan Craig : Someday I’m gonna be able to understand this without pausing every 5 seconds

James Ohlson : Am I the only one who feels like Resonance is a really not upbeat song? Whenever I listen to it I feel like It’s the middle of the night on a road trip, everyone’s asleep, and I’m all alone.

rinhasaproblem : didn’t understand shit but i feel so smart

Strelok Audio Design : your editing is awesome

Arpeggius : In case you wanna hear more songs like Resonance, here's a small list i've made: A.L.I.S.O.N - Passenger oDDling - Ascend VOYAGER & A.L.I.S.O.N - Echo Chamber Unfound - Without Zane Alexander - At Dusk Emil Rottmayer - Descend (the whole album is a nostalgic masterpiece)

Linkedius : But I’m still wondering why it’s nostalgic even though I was born in the 2000s. When I listen to Home - Resonance I get false memories that make me feel really nostalgic.

RaidyIDK : Bet you vox is crying to have you as a employee

RandomStuff : Yeah, what he said

FutbolVinotinto21 : I discovered this song during my first year of college. I instantly fell in love with it and began listening to it a lot, especially whenever I would drive back to my university after visiting home. After a while, I began assimilating that drive back with the song, and the scenery and sunsets (I usually drove back in the late afternoon) became even more beautiful. Now whenever I hear this song, it brings back memories of that drive and of all my wonderful first year memories. I'd say this is the song that brings the most nostalgia to me.

Gary Schwartz : it makes me feel sentimental for something that I have no experience of

Doggo Nation : I like the music.

CamKabob : I'm an early 2000s kid, so ytf am I felling the nostalgia?

Deep Luck : 2:15 what’s the background music?

Artzie Music : great explanation, misteramazing. resonance will always be a magical track. <3

KokuDjinn : so despacito really is perfect?

BLITZN00DLE : I'm only 13 years old and this song gives me nostalgia.

Stephen : I think you over-complicated the analysis. From the bassline, the basic chord progression is: Fm7 Abmaj7 Cm7, Fm7 Bbm7 Abmaj7. Or vi-I-iii, vi-ii-I.

sai shashank : Donno what is A flat and B flat All I know is cute girls are flat

SummerWave : "Someone made a 12 minute analysis of Resonance on youtube and i feel like they put more effort into the video than i did the song" - Home

MusicTheoryAdvanced : good vid. but did he say treble "cleft" at 7:34?

NELS : 10:50 "moog" is pronounced /mo:g/, not /mu:g/


TΛBBY : I’ve learnt the chords and playing it has made me a more powerful being.

Noval : This song has made me love HOME more. I guess I'm HOMosexual

Groor : Best song in the world

Oc Boi : Honestly I don't really understand any of these... But I feel smart enough

Ethan Alfonso : music theeeeoryyyy bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhghghghghhhhhhhhhhhhghggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh

femto666 : song at 2:02?

Lieutenant : Well, you did not mention the beat and percussion part of the song at all, only the synth part. Would love a part 2 to this video.

Luke Fraczek : I found out about this song from a Krab Borg remix comp. I regret nothing.

linux750 : I see...because of my days playing the Nintendo Gameboy, the Sega Genesis, and the Sony PlayStation I love "Resonance" ...because that song sounds like all the music of the games I played on those systems ...because those systems were limited to just 3 chord progression music or favored using synthpop and techno music for their soundtracks. Wow. Thanks Home for making a music track that...resonates with my generation. Thank you. Oh, and thank you too mister amazing for explaining all this to us.

Ulvven : i dont understand, but great vid :)

Fergzillar : Actual quote from Randy aka HOME: "Someone made a 12 minute analysis of Resonance on youtube and i feel like they put more effort into the video than i did the song"

Dirk Ryan : why am i just _now_ coming across a video like this? very interesting and quite detailed; however, shouldn't the sheet music at 6:22 be triplets—or dotted quarters depending on tempo (but please be advised, though, i was only a drummer and can only decipher beats)? /thanks again/

Mic Darum : I wish I could understand this!!

DaddyLongLegs44 : Was just listening to music and thought, "why not?" and clicked on this. Simply saying, you now have another sub. This is incredibly in-depth. And myself not being musically literate I am fascinated in the soul and science invested in making the emotions that are reborn from the music I listen to. Including Resonance. Thank you.

manualLaborer : Mr Amazing, it would be amazing if you learned how to pronounce "moog" correctly. Just paying it forward.

Matt Smith : Holy shit so happy to have found this channel.

william strickler : ROBERT MIERDA @ 4:10

young N559 : Home decay made me think about life and how lucky we are to be able to wake up every morning

Nic : I'm so shocked that this video exists!!!! Oh my gosh! But this song does not remind me of beaches. I think of driving through the Great Basin and Range of the southwest!

TΛBBY : Is this the blue planet documentary?

Revonoc : I just like the song. it's like simp music, and the nostalgia I have is from some point of when I first listened to the song. so my nostalgia is driving through the new Mexico desert in the eavening

Evelin Mel : Could you perhaps explain runaway by galantis?? There's just a feeling to that song that I can't explain just like this one

M X A R D M U S I C & Roblox or More : 7:24 I have that game

Theneedlelift : When I hear this song I think of ninja cause he played this song nonstop

ajr993 : I don't understand any of the music theory

DerpyDosh : *"The music theory behind this song is actually pretty simple"*
