Hello, live studio audience!
This week's mp3 was made a few months ago. I am extremely proud of it. Here's the story:
Me and my 3 roommates entered the 48 Hour Film Festival. Our movie was about a former child star who was on a sitcom called "Once In A Smile."
We needed the theme song for the end credits. Well, OK, we WANTED the theme song for the end credits. On the morning of the due date, I whipped it together.
The idea is that it's a lame 90s (or 80s?) sitcom theme, with cheesy meaningless lyrics and a heavenly mix and terrible guitar soloing to be "cool", and of course, the bluesy and soulful ending of the song (my favorite part.)
Here are the lyrics:
Every once in a smile
You gotta be with the one you love
You gotta look right at the sun
Fits just like a glove!
Once in a smile
A brand new day
Through the dark
Your face will light the way
ONCE IN A SMILE!
Isn't that what life's all about?
We got far in the festival, making it to the "Best Of NY" screening and winning an audience award! Not bad at all. I think the song may have gotten a few laughs at the screening, but it was hard to tell if people knew what was going on.
I am so proud of this. Hope you like it.
