S.A.C. Songwriting and Blogging Challenge - Week 6 - Collaborations

Collaborations!

This week I had a wonderful experience co-writing with two wonderful musicians.  I was able to do some Skype chatting with both Scott Perrie and Kimberley Beyea. 

 

Scott sent me a really cool mandolin track with some melody ideas.  I had some lyrics that I thought would suit the music and so sent them to Scott.  He added a great chorus and some some other instrumental magic to the mix. 

 

LADY OF THE WOODS (https://soundcloud.com/scottperriemusic/lady-of-the-woods)

(Scott Perrie & Matt Gerber)

 

Let me paint you a story,

Let the colour seep into your ears.

 

I wouldn't call her a stranger,

But no one ever knew her name.

She'd stand out from the scenery,

And blend in just the same.

 

Wandering through the woods as she pleased,

Every now and then I would hear, I'd hear her sing.

 

La da dai da da da, (3 x)

 

She carried the scent of cedars,

In the early autumn air.

A certain kind of stillness,

Followed her everywhere.

 

Wandering through the woods as she pleased

Every now and then she would sing, she'd sing for me.

 

La da dai da da da, (12 x)

 

 

The song that I co-wrote with Kimberley went together quickly as well.  She sent me a recording of a song idea, including some verses and the refrain "O, you're my only vice".  This was a great starting point and I was able to make a contribution to some of the verses as well as adding a bridge (which is repeated).  We were able to combine vocals and I was pleased that Kimberley added some flute solos!

 

My Only Vice (https://soundcloud.com/matt-gerber/my-only-vice-kimberley-beyea)

(Kimberley Beyea & Matt Gerber)

 

It's not the alcohol,

Or the drugs of choice,

I don't need cigarettes,

Or any fancy toys

 

O, you're my only vice

 

Don't need the decadence,

Of an aristocrat,

And for the latest trend....

I'm so over that.

 

O you're my only vice

 

This feels so right to me,

It's better than a shopping spree

So cut up the cards

Throw away the dice,

How could it be a sin, you're my only vice.

 

You're all the sex I crave

You're my war and peace

You're the thrill I get,

Running from the police

 

O, you're my only vice

 

You give me all the kicks,

I could ever need,

You're the single weakness,

That I'd concede.

 

O, you're my only vice

 

This feels so right to me,

It's better than a shopping spree

So cut up the cards

Throw away the dice,

How could it be a sin, you're my only vice.

    Love to listen to the song with beautiful lyrics that give you the meaning of the song. There are few songwriters who are focusing on it . They are a brilliant artist just like book cover designer who do lots of hard work to make in the best possible designs

    Notwithstanding using interior organization guides, consider extending your program to give individuals an alternative to be coached by leaders in different organizations. This shouldn’t be restricted to senior leaders. Think about setting up a comparative program for your young key employees To Know More.
