  2. Stephen Foster (1826—1864) was an American composer whose vast contribution to popular song, specifically the ballad genre, earned him an honorary place in the hall of fame of American music history. He had no choice but to get side-tracked from his main ambitions to compose music for the mainstream market, such as minstrel and sentimental pop ballads which were in high demand at the time. It is estimated that Foster authored around 200 songs, holding the credits for both lyrics and score for the most of them. However, in those days the copyright practice was virtually non-existent, so the profits from his works went largely to performers and publishers. One such example of his poor entrepreneurship occured in 1848 when he sold his song Oh! Susanna for $100 which later earned the publisher more than $10,000: A whole century later, in 1963, Tim Rose of The Big 3, inspired by Oh! Susanna, came up with his own power-rock version called The Banjo Song. The original chorus can still be easily recognized in Rose's cover, but it is the harmony that had to be almost entirely rewritten to reflect the aesthetics of the time, peppered with fresh and electric guitar riff. The Big 3 emerged as a novelty powerful trio, anchored by the drummer Johnny Hutchinson, who even used to help out on a few The Beatles gigs as the last minute replacement drummer. The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein also worked with The Big 3 and honed them into a powerful live outfit, but the trio was unsuccessful at translating this energy into their records. This proved to be their eventual downfall as the leading pop band, relegating them to a mere footnote in the era of the British music wave. Even after the disbandment of The Big 3, The Banjo Song wasn't forgotten, suddenly surfacing as the main foundation for the soon-to-become sensational Venus, an iconic song written by Robbie van Leeuwen from the Dutch band Shocking Blue. This time the situation was reversed: Van Leeuwen wrote a completely new set of lyrics while borrowing Rose's song harmony and musical form almost in its entirety, with some minimal changes. The key was changed to E minor, and the distinct guitar riff was converted for the keyboard and placed between the verses. In 1970, Venus made history by reaching the No.1 spot on Billboard Hot 100, being the first single by a Dutch band to do so. But by the mid-70s, the hippie counterculture era was coming to an end, and just as many other formative groups of the flower movement, Shocking Blue had to disband in 1974. Here is the perfect vinyl rip of the biggest Shocking Blue hits: Original article on MusicTales.cub
  3. Establishing the track number for the album's title song might be one of he most vital things in production. Historically, sound engineers had two main reasons to put the main track in the middle of a record. First of all, the vinyl's edge was far too quick to get worn out, so putting the hit songs at the top of the tracklist was out of the question. Secondly, the vinyl's circular middle was known to have a poorer sound due to its perimeter. What started as a practical solution has eventually grown into a trend that is still more or less being followed to this day, with the majority of modern artists choosing to place their title songs between 3rd and 5th on the tracklist. One notable example of this trend is Led Zeppelin's album III, with its hit song 'Since I've Been Loving You' holding the 4th place: The Beatles' 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' is placed 3rd on the album 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band' MusicTales.club

  5. Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) knew how to combine traditional Irish music with Italian Baroque that was the preferred choice of the high society at that time. The repetition of short motifs as well as the particular way of building tension reveal O'Carolan's knowledge of the leading styles in the Baroque era. His experiments with harp music influenced a whole new genre, as it were: the Celtic Classics. O’Carolan, who was the son of an iron founder, lost his sight to smallpox at the age of 18, and spent most of his life as a travelling harpist. However, he gained fame due to his gift of composing harp music and writing songs, mostly in Irish, with the exception of one English tune. The Celtic Baroque roots of 'Stairway to Heaven'

  7. Many people would say 'it doesn't matter because people don't listen to albums anymore' - and they'd be mostly correct. There are a certain number of 'older' music fans, though, who do listen to albums/CDs, and not just random playlists. So the question for a songwriter/performer who is putting their own album together - how do you decide in what order to put the songs? In some cases it might be easy as the song collection tell a story, but most often the songs are 'stand alone' and the order is not as clear cut. As my songs tend to be all over the spectrum - acoustic singer/songwriter, piano ballad, full-on rock, and almost anything in-between - I try to not put 2 songs together that have the same basic soundscape. I also try not to put songs together if they are written in the same key or have similar chord structures. But after that, what ....?
  8. <Let me know if it sounds too much like Joni Mitchell. She was definitely an influence. And also, give me tips for melody, if you can. What genre of music do you think it fits?> LYRICS: Slanted eyes and gypsy hair With a mean old crooked-smile glare She’s stupid, she’s sad, and young Swearing with her English tongue And she sings obscure forgotten songs Of lonely love and dancing nights And she laughs a little too long Otherwise she’s sighing Or even worse she’s crying Who had kissed her cowboy mouth? And caused her eyes to burn away And who could make her count the days Until he comes around He had a somber, sweet blue face And a soul of tangled tatted lace He’s crazy; spends his time alone To play his drums and xylophone Drowning out his own heartbeat And he thinks that he’s forgotten He wants to be complete But he knows he can’t defeat The aftertaste of sweetness The ugly burns of summer heat He had kissed her virgin mouth She caused his sense to go away He wanted her but couldn’t stay She hopes he’ll come around You know that he will come around In a month or two I’ll see you And I don’t care if you mind You’ll love me when you taste me I know that I’m your wine You can’t resist my cowboy mouth And you like my gypsy hair And I need your tangled tatted head And I need you to be there I know that you still care I’ll kiss your silent mouth

    La da dee

    For this song, I kinda imagined a slow verse backed by arpeggios that develops into a bright sprightly chorus. Verse 1 Put your hand in mine My heart in yours Our love is ours But everybody knows Our dreams their hopes Like silver gold Our love is ours That's all they need to know That's not all that they know Pre-chorus We're firecrackers, burning up the sky People gathered, staring up high In a Broadway musical, putting on a show The watching spectators, clapping down below Chorus As we're singing La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo Dancing to La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo Verse 2 Hold me in your eyes You're all I see Our love is ours But everybody knows Our past their now Our new their old Our love is ours That's all they need to know That's not all that they now Pre-chorus We're firecrackers, burning up the sky People gathered, staring up high In a Broadway musical, putting on a show The watching spectators, clapping down below Chorus As we're singing La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo Dancing to La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo Bridge And though we see it all Tremble and shake Though we're tired of Chasing the flies away Though we realize Our tree is evergreen Never shedding away Always staying the same Never falling just down to two Chorus We keep singing La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo Dancing to La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo Chorus Keep singing La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo One more time La da dee La da doo La dee la dee la da doo

    Candy World

    Verse 1 Dear Mr olliver How do you do? I'll take two secrets Confessions to go Dear Mr Olliver Silence is gold Pity you're not keen to pay Dear little Robert We're all set to go The wheels are in motion He's in our control Dear little Robert Don't you chicken out Deceit is the way of the world Pre-chorus 1 2 3 Sugar sweet Welcome and wait 4 5 6 Taste and grade Tied up and chained Chorus To a candy world Full of candied people Full of broken homes Full of painted colours Full of shallow souls Full of rained down glitter Full of empty notes Full of drooping feathers Verse 2 Dear Mrs Hudson Just heard of your loss I've sent you some flowers Hope that is enough Dear Mrs Hudson I loved your new gown Where did you find one so black? Dear mum and dad Dont you, don't you two know? Old Hudson's funeral Was such a big bore Dear mum and dad It was no where as grand As Mrs Cooper's last week. Pre-chorus 1 2 3 Sugar sweet Welcome don't wait 4 5 6 Tasted grade Twisted and changed Chorus To a candy world We are candied people With broken homes Full of painted colours We are shallow souls Full of rained down glitter Full of empty notes Full of drooping feathers Bridge Knock knock knock Look out the door A voice saying Knock knock knock Look through your soul See the scorching sun Burning out illusions The gentle breeze Toning down delusions The striking rain Opening your mind Opening your eyes Chorus Run run away From this candy world With candied people Singing symphonies That will lure you further Wiping memories That were your safe harbour Camouflaging dreams Inducing unknown terror

    Verse 1 Hold out your hand Lift up your foot Tie back your hair Talk like you should Polish your shoes Wear your best gown Sing something sweet Spin up a yarn Pre-chorus Turn your head left Turn your head right Walk and crawl and run It's a fun game Do it again I'm your 'bot to run Chorus Yea gears all turning Wheels all spinning I'm woozy I'm dizzy I can't stop I'm in your palm now Held in a remote Press what you want and it's done Verse 2 Cut out my heart Chop of my feet Slash up my arms Still not complete Starve to a twig Take a few pills Look in a pond Walk in the rain Pre-chorus Turn my head left Turn my head right Walk and crawl and run It's a fun game Do it again I'm your 'bot to run Chorus Yea gears all turning Wheels all spinning I'm woozy I'm dizzy I can't stop I'm in your palm now Held in a remote Press what you want and it's done Chorus But my gears stopped turning My wheels stopped spinning I'm rusted I'm broken sell me off I'm in the corner When I see her She's shiny and pretty, and what you want

    Dreamers

    Verse 1 You come up with all these silly little lies You don't know that I know what you're hiding behind You can't seem to see me being like you But let me tell you we're all selfish inside Pre-Chorus And its a cruel, cruel world With cruel, cruel people Its a greedy life With greedy people Chorus But there are the dreamers dreaming Believers believing Seekers seeking And healers healing The fighters fighting Hopers hoping Lovers loving Out there in the world Lighting up the world Verse 2 You and I sit in this corner alone Counting pebbles painted silver and gold And while we're pacing, crawling back and forth Waiting for someone to open the door Chorus There are the dreamers dreaming Believers believing Seekers seeking And healers healing The fighters fighting Hopers hoping Lovers loving Out there in the world Lighting up the world Bridge We set out to leave footprints In firm concrete We set out and built spaceships Left them half complete We wanted to set off fireworks Not turn to dust We wanted to burn up, shoot across Not sit and rust Chorus We were once dreamers dreaming Believers believing Seekers seeking And healers healing Fighters fighting Hopers hoping Lovers loving Lost out to the world Holding back the world Chorus But we can still be dreamers dreaming Believers believing Seekers seeking And healers healing Fighters fighting Hopers hoping Lovers loving Going back into the world Lighting up the world Cause it's not too late for us We can still....... Light up the world

  18. Part 1 [Upbringing] (Her mother raises her to be religious) A child is born under god as his slave Trained to be a saint from her cradle to her grave Preach his gospel, follow their every word Is she enlightened or is her sight blurred? If she should disobey, her closet will be her prison Sitting in vomit and feces, her will shall be broken Preach his gospel, follow their every word Is she stricken or has she been cured? Part 2 [Religious Mania] (She is oppressed by the voices her mom put in her head) She hears a voice in her head “Do what you’re told, “Never remove your mental blindfold” Submitting to a false god’s will Part of her knows He’s pretend Her subconscious propagates her faith The sin of unbelief, in her closet she prays This God is her cocaine She’s dependent and it makes her insane Religious delusions Influenced by illusions Hear the church bell Rejection will send you to hell Religious mania Intelligence is alien She hears a voice in her head “I care for all my creations, As long as they don’t give into temptations” They all say God loves her So why is she oppressed and alone Don’t react, don’t show anger If you suppress it, it will get better This god is her cocaine She’s dependent and it makes her insane Religious delusions Influenced by illusions Hear the church bell Rejection will send you to hell Religious mania Intelligence is alien Part 3 [The Telekinetic] (Carrie begins killing people. (Sounds kind of frantic.)) God loves me God loves me He does And I love God I will show these sinners the way This is the Lord’s day I am the telekinetic People may think I’m antagonistic But cleansing this world is my destiny Nonbelievers have received the death penalty They used to tell me to tell me I’m a pig They used to wet me with blood, but who’s bleeding now He made me the telekinetic I am the telekinetic Jesus Christ chose me Maine will be coated in debris Jesus Christ chose me He chose me Part 4 [Reflection] (Her death.) I’m lying in the church parking lot A knife in my chest When I finally have the thought I should give this all a rest At death's door, I open my eyes Now I can see, I must apologize My vision is blurring, I see no heaven Why must it take my demise To realize I started armageddon Under a god that preaches genocide At death's door, I open my eyes Now I can see, I must apologize Since I was born I was hypnotized For a myth, I committed homicide And left this world traumatized As I lay here bleeding out I wish to make amends I needed my god to exist My sanity depended on it A child is born under god as his slave Trained to be a saint from her cradle to her grave Preach his gospel, follow their every word Is she enlightened or is her sight blurred? If she should disobey, her closet will be her prison Sitting in vomit and feces, her will shall be broken Preach his gospel, follow their every word Is she stricken or has she been cured? I understand now I understand At death’s door, I open my eyes Now I can see, and this is my apology
