yeah, go for TB-AV's scenario;

it will stick in their heads the whole day/week.

you don't want to win songwriting contests; you want to a memorable tune the crowd can sing.

The queen formula and the repeating lyric seems like an excellent way to go.


This is what I came up with in a 5 minute coffee break:

I have a melody in my head, perhaps I can record it later

the verse rhythm is "bom-bom-tsikbom-bom-bom-tsik".
(kidna like rock you but a little different)
In the verse I made the emphasis red->the rhythm changes a bit, it's fluent rather than the verse


Ginger anthem

I met a redhead, guess what he said?
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
you gotta paint this town! You gotta paint it red!   
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!

Your shine is red, you wear your pride!
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
The grass is greener on the ginger side!
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!


Around the world, we feel the same,
We are the fire, we are the flame
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!



My color is deep, my color is true
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
I'm sure it means to me what it means to you
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!

This town will quake with a hell-of-a-noise
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
Let them hear your vermillion voice!
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!



Around the world, we feel the same,
We are the fire, we are the flame
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!

Around the world, we feel the same,
We are the fire, we are the flame
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!
Gin-Ger Gin-Ger Rulz!!





hehe,actually,  I'm kinda liking this this lyric myself now

Don't worry, I will keep it simple. I wouldn't be able to do anything not simple anyway!

I've been playing that chord sequence a lot yesterday and got some -simple- lyrics that are easy to remember. I'm hearing the melody too, so all we need now is a few verses. Mike was supposed to write the song so I'm not going to do everything for him (and neither should you). He's a slacker who likes to step into the limelight at the right time but I'm not going to let him off easy this time. I've got some ideas but he'll have to come up with the verses. And I'll repeat to him what you said to me: K.I.S.S.!
Thank you for the music!

Huge sigh of relief...

It turns out Mike actually can play, he just doesn't know a lot of technical terms or theory. I played the chords and explained what I had in mind. He liked the sound of it and he loved the chorus I wrote. He's already got a melody figured out and he's going to practice and write verses... Or at least he said he would. Looks like I'm off the hook and I am very relieved about that!
Thank you for the music!
