Creative Brief

With so much tough stuff going on in the world today, I wanted to write a feel-good anthem for this tumultuous summer. I'd love to hear your ideas for this one--it's pretty upbeat and happy, but with a little political bite. Don't feel obligated to keep the piano or the vocals (use your own, or I'm happy to re-record both, if you have a different vision.) The basic chord structure is super easy:

CFDFG

GFDGC

 

Dance in the Sun

 

I wake up at night, my mind is churning

Want to step out of time, but the world keeps on turning

Want to find a little peace, but the streets are burning

I think I need a little time with you.

 

I want to dance in the sun, want to live in the light til this fever is done

I want to dance in the sun, dance in the sun with you.

We want to dance 'neath the stars, hear our favorite bands playin' neighborhood bars

And I want to dance 'neath the stars, dance 'neath the stars with you.

 

The man on the news tells us we got to hide,

Lock up the doors, keep the children inside

But the man at the top can't keep track of his lies,

And folks just don't know what to do.

 

Now brothers and sisters all take to the streets

Just can't take no more lies, no more blood, no more grief

Together we 'll find a new way to believe

Together we will see this through.

 

And we're gonna' dance in the sun, gonna' live in the light til this fever is done

And I'm gonna' dance in the sun, dance in the sun with you.

And we're gonna' dance 'neath the stars, hear our favorite bands playin' neighborhood bars

And I'm gonna dance 'neath the stars, dance 'neath the stars with you.

 

[Break]

 

And we're gonna' dance in the sun, gonna' live in the light til this fever is done

And I'm gonna' dance in the sun, dance in the sun with you.

And we're gonna' dance 'neath the stars, hear our favorite bands playin' neighborhood bars

And I'm gonna dance 'neath the stars, dance 'neath the stars with you.

 

I wanna dance in the sun with you.

I'm gonna' dance in the sun with you.
