So…I’ve written songs since I was in elementary school, though I cringe to think about the lyrics which were about “Cute boys,” and “My Mean teacher,” and Why I thought fruit snacks were the bomb. No, not fruit roll-ups, I’m talking fruit snacks.
I’d always scribble songs in my journals and notebooks, and hum the melodies during choir or Chorus class, but I was super shy growing up. (though no one really believes me when I say that. It’s TRUE!)
But.. I love music and singing, and took voice lessons with Wendy Parr, a songwriter and Vocal teacher, in NYC. She and I wrote several songs together, and it was so AMAZING when I found out that the song she wrote, “Dreams on Fire,” was on the soundtrack for the Golden Globe nominated, critically acclaimed film, “SlumDog Millionaire.”
So if you’re looking to be inspired or trying to stay positive amidst life’s hardships, I suggest that you listen to the lyrics of this song. Yah. I’m cheesy. So what?
