It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Springtime

Spring is here, as is a parody version of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” to mark the season’s arrival. The idea for this song came many moons ago, when I came up with the lyrics, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Springtime / Everywhere you go / Take a look atContinue reading “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Springtime”

New Lyric Video– learn all the Midwest states and capitals in 2 minutes! (Plus some ranting about technological snafus)

I made a Youtube video for my “Midwestern States and Capitals” song. I found a blank U.S. map on pixabay.com and filled in the color of each relevant state using MS Paint. Then I made a slide show using Google Slides and put the whole thing together using iMovie. Here is the end result: I’mContinue reading “New Lyric Video– learn all the Midwest states and capitals in 2 minutes! (Plus some ranting about technological snafus)”

The worst lyrics I’ve written yet

This is a song I’ve put off sharing for about 8 months. It’s a follow-up to my song “States and Capitals (of the Northeast!).” The new song is called, “Midwestern States and Capitals.” When editing a project, I sometimes become aware of how inconsistent the line lengths are, or how irregular the pattern of stressed/unstressedContinue reading “The worst lyrics I’ve written yet”

New Song! “Blue Light Glasses”

For this week’s blog post, I wrote a song, since I haven’t written a song in a while. The inspiration comes from my eyes hurting after looking at a screen all day, which I’m sure is a lot of people’s experiences right now. It talks about blue light glasses being a bandaid solution for theContinue reading “New Song! “Blue Light Glasses””

“Lightning in a Bottle” is now on Youtube

Hello! Here is a Youtube video for my song, “Lightning in a Bottle.” I was thinking of putting it up on Youtube a while ago. For the video, my idea was for there to be someone on a couch reading a book, occasionally looking at their phone. Kind of to draw attention to the timeContinue reading ““Lightning in a Bottle” is now on Youtube”

New Lyric Video for “States and Capitals…of the Northeast!”

This is a lyric video I made to help people learn the states and capitals of the Northeast. I made the video using Google Slides with images from Pixabay, clker, and unsplash. These websites have thousands of free images for commercial use, so they were a life-saver. I then put the slides onto iMovie andContinue reading “New Lyric Video for “States and Capitals…of the Northeast!””

“Lightning in a Bottle” – New Song!

“The Tyranny of Expectations” – new song

This song is about navigating expectations from society and yourself. The lyrics are below, as is a beautiful cover by my sister: Trying, failing, falling behindTreading water and wasting timeI’m scared, I’m scared, I’m terrifiedI’ve been given so much and I’ve let it die Shouldn’t I have accomplished more?In what domain I’m not quite sureI’mContinue reading ““The Tyranny of Expectations” – new song”

Song to learn U.S. states and capitals (of the Northeast!)

This is a song I worked on a few months ago. I wanted the song to be a memory/educational aid to help kids learn all 50 states and capitals. Turns out that 50 is a large number and makes a song quite unwieldy, so I cut it down to just the Northeast, as defined byContinue reading “Song to learn U.S. states and capitals (of the Northeast!)”
