One of the nice things about writing for a variety of projects is that I’m occasionally asked to come up with something in a specific style. (“Hey, can you write a 50’s Rock & Roll song?” or “Can you do a Dixieland style?” or “Do you have to keep laughing hysterically when someone mentions the word ‘maverick’?”) Um, that last one has nothing to do with anything.
This week’s piece is actually part of a cool project I participated in recently. I was asked to come up with an “80’s power ballad” to accompany some lyrics. I didn’t want to do something over-the-top, but I needed to come up with something with an 80’s sound. I ashamed to say that it wasn’t really all that hard to do. This one is called “Pretty in Puce” and it runs 1:08m. I hope you like it…or don’t like it; either way is cool.
