Creative Brief

This is a song I created together with my first lady. The title, 木头人, is Chinese and means "wooden head", which can also be understood as "blockhead" or "stubbornhead". It is difficult to translate the lyrics and convey the meaning, but here is an attempt:

Blockhead/Woodhead

Verse 1:
He loves red wine
and drinks latte macchiato during the day.
Wheat is the only good beer
but in the evening he prefers schnapps.

Verse 2:
He prefers to listen to progressive rock,
has a good collection of folk and oldies,
but can't do much with jazz and classical music.

Pre-Chorus 1:
But blockheads don't sing and dance.
Blockheads don't want to be sad and cry.
Blockheads do just fine on their own.

Chorus 1:
Such a blockhead begins to learn
To say that he loves you.
Such a seemingly boring man is brave enough
to look at you.

Solo 1 ...

Bridge:
Add some grease! Lubricate lightly!
Does it need to be wound? Wind it up!
Does it need power? Does it need to be plugged in?
Launch him!
The gentle heart of wood awakens
and the world of sounds reveals itself.
Appearances are deceiving, the heart is alert.

Solo 2 ...

Pre-Chorus 2:
No, even a blockhead can sing and dance.
A blockhead can be heartbroken and cry.
It's not good for a blockhead to be alone.

Chorus 2:
Such a blockhead begins to learn
To say he loves you.
Such a seemingly dull man is brave enough
to look at you.

Break (Intro Reprise)

Chorus 3:
Such a nerd will always say he loves you.
Such a blockhead will look right at you.
Such a blockhead will always say he loves you.
Such a blockhead will look right at you.


We are looking for real drums and bass and for a lead guitar to fill the empty parts.
