Locational song - Summertime, Walking on the Moon

Postby Digiwizz » Mon Aug 15, 2005 10:09 am

'Summertime' is one of the greatest locational songs to be written by people with no personal experience of the locational setting involved.

So this can be done, though it is easier and commoner to write well of what you do have personal experience !!

Summertime

by Ira Gershwin and Du Bose Heyward, from the 1933 musical "Porgy and Bess" (Music by George Gershwin)

Summertime
And the living is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Oh, your daddy's rich
And your mama's good lookin'
So hush little baby now
don't you cry

One of these mornin's
You're gonna rise up singin'
Then you'll spread your wings
And take to the sky

But til that mornin'
Ain't nothin' can harm you
With your daddy
And your mammy
standin' by.

Yes Digiwizz imagination is a great aid in writing almost anything.

For me a good example is this 1979 song by The Police ;

Walking On The Moon

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don't break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could live together
Walking on, walking on the moon.

Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Feet they hardly touch the ground
Walking on the moon
My feet don't hardly make no sound
Walking on, walking on the moon.

Some may say
I'm wishing my days away
No way
And if it's the price I pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another day
You stay
I may as well play.

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don't break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could be together
Walking on, walking on the moon.

Some may say
I'm wishing my days away
No way
And if it's the price I pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another day
You stay
I may as well play.

Keep it up, keep it up.
