My First Song – Mr Grim Reaper

Lyrics by Charlotte Crafter

Produced by Pete Moody

First time!

This is my first song, I have written a lot of poetry and lyrics before but never got as far as transforming them into anything more than words on paper. I spend a lot of my spare time writing, but I took this one (as it is my favourite one I have written so far) to my voice coach Pete and worked with him to create the track. He is amazing and I absolutely love the track

So what is Mr Grim Reaper about?

When I wrote this song I decided to use the Grim Reaper as a metaphor for a few different reasons. The main reason was because obviously we associate the Grim Reaper with death and thusly heartbreak by default. When you start lusting over someone you shouldn’t its going to end badly, yet you are drawn to them like a ‘moth to a light’.

The other reason behind the name is a mystery so if you fancy getting your Sherlock on, you can dig a little deeper and try to work out the meaning.

Thanks!

Thank you for stopping by and listening! I hope you enjoy the track, if you do please share and give the blog/my SoundCloud some loving!

These Boots Are Made For Walking – Cover

I don’t normally take part in the #ThrowBackThursday trend because normally I don’t have anything interesting to share. Today however, I realised it was around six months ago that I recorded my first ever cover of a song and shared it on Soundcloud! It marks a huge turning point in my life so I thought I would share it with everyone here!

I chose the wonderful Nancy Sinatra’s ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’ because I loved the famous scene from Austin Powers where the Fembots came out to that tune and shamefully I have to admit, Cate and I did role play this as children! Of course we didn’t understand that they were seducing everyone… we were completely innocent… I think!

Regardless, all those months ago I plucked up the courage to sing in front of people and to record it too (with the help of my awesome voice coach Pete Moody). Take a look at my throw back and feel free to comment, feed back is always welcome – good or bad! Fingers crossed for good.

Okay let’s go boots!

Covering Robbie Williams

I was about 8 years old when I decided that I loved Robbie Williams. I don’t know why, but I had this idea in my head we would get married and all that romantic mush. Of course the flaw in my plan was he didn’t even know I existed, but hey I was young it was completely plausible! In fact I believed it for years! Now days I’ll just stick to enjoying his music and singing it. Below is my cover of Sexed Up.

Sexed Up is my favourite Robbie song, probably my favourite song of all songs if I am honest. Much like my love for Robbie I don’t know why. It’s quite a sorrowful song really but I find it quite beautiful. So I hope I do it some justice.
