    Ok...I'm holding on....

    You can click edit on your original post, then select the "More Options" button at the bottom of the dialogue box, then you should see a button that says "Upload a File", it is the middle button at the bottom below the dialogue box as Boswell has suggested, where you can upload an Mp3 file at 320 mps...

    Or you can upload it as a subsequent new post below using the same "Upload a File" button.

    Just ask if you need any further advice uploading your song, we are happy to help you if you need it. :)

    There's a lot here we could discuss... but first off, can you tell us what equipment you used?
    Such as the mic, the preamp/i-o, what your recording space is like, and how you monitored this song to mix it - headphones? monitors? ( what model of monitors?)...

    Along with...

    Your DAW platform, and what processing/plug ins you used on your tracks - like compressors, limiters, EQ, etc.

    Wat you've posted here is a lot like you going to see your doctor and telling him simply, "I don't feel good". You've got to be more specific.
    You've got a room full of very intelligent audio "doctors" here, and we're glad to help... but so far, all you've told us is that you think that "it doesn't sound nice".

    Providing examples of what you would like it to sound like would also be helpful.

    The more info you can give us, the more we can help you.

    Ok..im using Fl Studio 10 producer edition. I don't have any equipment now. Im very new in this. I have only one condenser As of now.
    SAMSOM CO1U USB STUDIO CONDENSER. I've used fruity Compressor , Eq and Reverb on the vocals. And sidechained little bit of delay. Since i don't have an sound proof room i had to remove a lot of noise. Effecting tho vocals as well. im ok with the quality cos its all i can do for now. But the vocals are not sitting with the keys. All advise taken in with a happy heart...thankyou

    Try to use a reference track and listen how the vocals sit in with the piano tracks. Try to emulate this.

    Download and import into your DAW so you can switch between your reference track and your track.

    May I recommend something such as these as a guide.

    Remember, the more processes, effects or plug-ins you apply will degrade or take a little away from the natural unprocessed track. If it needs it, use it, but if it doesn't, then don't use it just for the sake of it.

    Hear the David Bryan track?...his voice is his second instrument....its sitting nicely in with the piano, they compliment each other.

    try to get your vocal sitting back a little, its sitting a little forward, and sounds a little brittle.

    You can thicken up your vocal with a little parallel compression on the vocal track blended in.

    Read this post so you can get some idea how to apply parallel compression to vocals. http://recording.org/threads/parallel-compression.59296/

    If you've got $500 to spend on monitors, you're in pretty good shape for a home studio.

    I would recommend staying at a woofer size that is under 5" if you are working in an untreated space. If you were to add bass traps to your room, you could get into models with larger woofer sizes.
    If you are planning on placing them against a wall, or in close proximity to a boundary, I would also recommend a model with a front-firing bass port (the port is located in the front instead of the rear of the speaker cabinet).

    Here are a few models that would be decent for the money:

    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/LSR305 ( rear ported)

    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Rokit5G3 ( front ported)

    And if you can come up with another $100, these Focals would be a good choice:
