Week One S.A.C. Challenge 2015

Wow, I’m so impressed with all the great songwriters coming in on this years challenge, I’m feeling a little nervous, excited, intimidated and overwhelmed. But that’s what a challenge is all about. Trying to come up with an idea to suit the Artist Matt Dusk and his style so I’d like to work with some male songwriters and someone who has better production skills than me. He likes groove things. Crooner take it out the window contempoary musical landscape, groove base things band rock mafia, pumped up kicks, Get Lucky by Daft Punk, All of Me by John Legend, Lana Del Ray and let’s try anything to get it happening. Listening to everything that Matt Dusk said and the fact that he wants to get the right excitement of the band and audience and put it all together. That stuff really works for Matt Dusk. He tells us to go for it, never know what’s going to happen. So I think to myself sure why not and try. Already I have an idea going musically with a title and theme but I’m not ready to post that yet. Trying to find the time to read everyone’s post is a little time consuming to say the least. I am looking for people to collaborate with. Cheers Joyce

So I’ve been collaborating with Dave Stanley Daoust for pitching a song to Matt Dusk for consideration and we are down to the last hour doing this.  The marriage of melody and lyrics along with arrangement.

1.  Joyce Grennan

2.  What was the hardest challenge or hardest part of the challenge for you and why?

Finding the time to cowrite with other writers schedule was the biggest challenge.

3.  What did you enjoy most about participating in this experience?

Thinking outside of my comfort zone and getting to know other songwriters.

4.  What is something significant that you learned from taking on this challenge? (It can be about yourself or about the challenge)

Always a never ending learning experience when it comes to writing and music.  I found out that I need to release some emotional blockage before writing lyrics.

5.  Would you do this type of challenge again?  Why or why not?  I would do this type of challenge again, loved it.  It was a pleasurable learning experience.

6.  Your link to your Matt Dusk submission.  Please include lyrics on your SoundCloud page.  If one of your collaborating partners is submitting the link to your song, you can refer to their posting (ie. See link from ____________).

HERE COMES MY WOMAN

(c) 2015 by Dave Stanley Daoust and Joyce Grennan

White table cloth red rose in a vase

Candle lite dancing  bottle of champagne

My Funny Valentine playing soft and low

Waiting for my lady to come home

CHORUS:

Here she come here she comes

Here comes my woman

Like the Sun Like the Sun

Like the sun she comforts me

Soothes my soul like a ray of sunshine

She gets me she does it every time

Here she comes here she comes

Here comes my woman

I just got a message she’ll be here soon

Five minutes and she’ll light up this room

She’ll walk through that door with a great big smile

Her Grace and tenderness…. Oh how I love her style

CHORUS:

Here she come here she comes

Here comes my woman

Like the Sun Like the Sun

Like the sun she comforts me

Soothes my soul like a ray of sunshine

She gets me she does it every time

Here she comes here she comes

Here comes my woman

Bridge

She’s the key She completes me

REPEAT CHORUS
