This means only one thing for me – time to write a new theme song and make a video to boot. Of course I've been working on this one for the last few months, a verse riff here and a middle 8 melody there, piece by piece the song has nicely come together, but not after several rewrites though. Some of the best songs have come from writing a phrase or melody only to realise that the piece you've just written is exactly what you don't want. I personally have no formula for writing songs and I don't really care which comes first – melody, riff or lyrics, it matters not to me, only that inspiration comes from one of them to inspire me for the rest – that'll do me nicely! I've written both songs to lyrics and put lyrics to tunes and neither seems any easier than the other. I think as a composer, you know when its right and if you're honest, you know when its not. Sometimes you really want a tune to work as you know it has a certain something to it and it may not be a bad tune, but perhaps it just doesn't work in that particular configuration and thats what needs to change. Talk about "pressure on" scooters man, it's like the infamous "second album" – can Phill do it again and write another catchy tune for this years 30 Day Challenge!! Thanks guys no pressure – phew!

I really like this song if I do say so myself, its simple and melodic. If I'm not confident of a melody or tune, I either rework it or trash it and start again, but this years 30DC theme tune melody is memorable – and thats what people like in a song, it also has an uplifting happy feel to help get people motivated for the challenge each day. Sure the track is perhaps a little cliché with a few prog-rock references at the end of the song, but its original, memorable and most of all fun – and that is the foundation of a good song. I try not to attach myself to my music too much as you do put your head on the chopping-block ready for any type of criticism and abuse people wish to throw at you. I know Ed and Dan are in the same boat for what they put together for the challenge – you can never make everyone happy, you just have to put your stuff out there for folks to use and abuse, but you do have to be prepared to accept some non-friendly comments about your efforts, thats what creative people have to deal with, here's my efforts – say what you will, its what I'm offering. I wouldn't change it for the world, I love it.
The video also contains some humorous references to this years "Ed Dale Mankini" joke in the style of a couple of video I released earlier last month. If you didn't catch them, you can see them here on Youtube; Thirty Day Challenge is Misunderstood – Mankini Style!
