Ants crawl in the clouded space...

Yeah weird title.  But it kinda sums up the point I'm about to make.

Listen to some of the pop songs out there.  A lot of them have a huge PUNCH in their first line.


Ke$ha-Tik Tok
"Wake up in the mornin' feelin' like P-Diddy..."

Katy Perry-Firework
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag....?    ( ok....so i thought that that was starting off well then the phrase ended like : "Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?" What the hell does that mean?!?!)  

Regina Spektor- Samson
"You are my sweetest downfall..."

All American Rejects- Give You Hell
"I wake up every evening with a smile on my face..."

So for this week, I'll try to write a song with a first line punch...

how this will work...

Each week I will attempt to capture the essence of already existing songs. 
In other words, each week I'll write an ORIGINAL song in the style of, for example, Katy Perry.  

I'll talk a little about her lyrics, provide you with chords to play along, and then complete the week with my very own Katy Perry song! (hey that all kinda rhymed...hah)

Join me on my journey or partake in my challenge...

I look forward to hearing from you!

Signed Sealed and Delivered,
Laurie Anne (hence LA music.)
