Set Task 1 – Using the concept of “The Trump” compose and capture an original composition based on the skills of your enforced group.
Group- Ophelia Neville, Tom Bentley and Rosie Mountjoy (Myself).
When it came to creating this song, Ophelia, Tom and I all decided that we wanted to think outside the box and not go with the straight up idea of doing it about Donald Trump as we felt this was an idea a lot of other groups would go down. We started off with writing down what the word ‘Trump’ meant to us and what it reminded us off which led on to us all having the idea of childhood game, so thats where we decided that games would be our underlying theme/object.
The lyrics we settled on:
You laid out the deck when we first met
One wrong move even the wrong step
Don’t want to risk being the joker
You’ve got a bit of a reputation
I Try to read your thoughts as you play your hand
In anticipation of your next move (your next move)
And I can feel the end closing in
Cause I’m running out of cards to play
Wishing it was yesterday
Cause now I can feel my lungs caving in
The deck is stacked against my fate
And I’m running out of things to blame
Shuffle all you want it won’t change a thing
The moves have been predictable
I’m not playing anymore it’s time to let you win
Below I have included the 3 takes of the song, this showing the development and the final version of the song.
