Dear talented professional,
You are a craftsperson. Hours are spent considering how to best place your carefully penned lyrics, the emphasis of each word vitally important to communicating your message. Melody, harmony and rhythm in perfect balance. We need your help.
Too long have parents the world over suffered at the hands of the poorly written drivel spouted by so many musical toys! Some of our bugbears include
- The lyrics are nonsensical
- Vocal line and instrumental line are in different keys, but play simultaneously
- The pulse of the words battles with the pulse of the music
These things are the enemy of anyone with ears.
Think of the children! If we aren’t careful, they will grow up to think that this is what music should sound like! No!
We have to listen to these odious jingles countless times a day, making them bore into our very souls. This would not be a problem, were they at all worth listening to in the first place, leading to homemade soundproofing becoming a necessity.
This is where you come in. Who can write and record a delightful ditty suitable for a children’s toy that won’t have us reaching for the gaffer tape? Bringing joy to both parents and children alike? I feel this MUST be a possibility. We can achieve this, together. Who’s in?
Yours in hopeful anticipation,
Parents and children worldwide
