‘Rubicon’ — #Lyrics To An EDM-Dance Pop Song

This is a really smart song that maybe 20% of the listeners would understand what the fuck I was trying to say. The concept on this one is a woman is ovulating and she wants to have a baby, but she’s had a spat with her boyfriend / lover / husband and she wants him to come back to bed and get her pregnant.

cross the Rubicon
cross the Rubicon

your armies face their fate
when you take your is yours
late at night near midnight
or will you decline my love
because of a petty battle
we’ll forget soon enough

you’re a hero in the making
a father of your nation
believe in yourself

cross the Rubicon
my love
cross the Rubicon
my love
cross the Rubicon

I lie awake my desire only you can slake
the darkness of the midnight hour
surrounds me demanding your touch
but you are gone into the night
because we’re cross

when we look back at this we’ll laugh
our love is stronger than this
but the moment is ripe for you march
across the wet waters of desire
into my harms forever

you’re a hero in the making
a father of your nation
believe in yourself

cross the Rubicon
my love
cross the Rubicon
my love
cross the Rubicon

[bridge]
we’ll hold each other
you’ll touch my belly
feel a kick
we’ll know victory is ours
with a smile

when things are settled
you’re back where you need to be
we’ll debate our fate
our passions keeping us warm
love restored

cross the Rubicon
my love
cross the Rubicon
my love
cross the Rubicon

Of Podcasting, Soundcloud & The Music Industry In The Context Of Usenet Concepts

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Now, the reason why I think you could use a service based on the concepts of Usenet and IRC to revolutionize not only the publishing business but music is because if you see these concepts the way I do, then there are any number of use cases you can think up.

So, this post is about the use case of music industry, podcasting and this service.

The interesting thing about this concept when it comes to podcasting and music is it’s a natural fit. If, as part of developing the site, you were to buy Soundcloud on the cheap and integrate it into the service you could do some pretty cool things. I say this because the key to making the service a success is finding different communities to use as source of growth marketing.

Establishing this platform as one where you could discuss podcasts and music would be pretty cool. The entire service would be designed to encourage debate and discussion and pretty much given the passions associated with music would be a perfect fit. People love to talk about music and podcasting and if you made it so you could actually do a podcast native to the service, all the better. Though, because I’m a former user of the now defunct video service known as Blab if I had anything to do with it, I would try to take things to the next step and use video as much as possible.

But imagine Pod Save America dropping on the service. There would be a Crooked Media post beneath the podcast and people could inline edit that content in a threaded discussion as well as have an archive live-text chat about it as well. This is pretty powerful stuff on a conceptual level, if nothing else. While I’m sure these concepts are floating about here and there, I can’t think of a site like the one I imagine that would do it all in one place seamlessly.

Or the latest hip-hop video drops and you get to not only watch the video, but get a full-page ad for merch and tickets to venues where the performer in the video is going to sing. That’s pretty cool, I think. And because people are interested in this content in the first place, they won’t mind that they’re interacting with an enormous ad while they talk about the music.

It seems pretty obvious that EDM would be the perfect subculture to promote this service to at first for no other reason than they have a huge amount of passion and they would love the ability to talk about venues and music and what not. Now, I know there are probably plenty of sites that already exist that allow them to do just that, but I like to think the service I’ve come up with would be so cool as to draw at least a sizable amount of those people to the service.

But, as I said, no one cares what I have to say. This is just daydreaming. I will grow tired of it soon enough, but for the time being it’s relaxing to look at this concept from different angles.

‘Caligula’ — #Lyrics To A Woke #EDM Song

Yes, I know the music usually comes before the lyrics in an EDM song, but I like EDM and I like telling stories in verse, so you get this. I’m listening to an EDM song as I write these lyrics just to get the mood and this is really just a first draft but it’s fun to write lyrics anyway. It’s just for fun. I find the process of writing lyrics fascinating. this would be a really dancable EDM song about, well, Donald J. Trump.

Caligula

I watch CNN see the truth in front of me
we’re all going to die
I’m afraid
might as well dance the night way
hope we get to see the dawn
after a night of passion
what happens next is anyone’s guess

the president is a modern day
Caligula
Caligula
Caligula

he’s lost his mind I’m afraid
we have to address the facts of life
things are growing dire
with Trump as president
what are we going to to smooth fate
I’m afraid this is the end
so take my hand before it all ends

the president is a modern day
the president is a modern day
Caligula
Caligula
Caligula

[bridge]
run to your fall out shelter
run as fast as you can
make sure you kiss your loved ones goodbye
when the missile heads our way
we’re all going to day his name

Caligula
Caligula
Caligula

the president is insane
the president is insane
the president is insane

‘Nothingburger’ –#Lyrics To An #EDM-#Pop Fusion Song

I am well aware that not only I’m not that great a lyricist but that EDM songs usually are produce with the beats first then lyrics. But I like EDM and it seems to fit the mood I want for these lyrics, so there. These lyrics would go to something like a Basement Jaxx song.

Nothingburger
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

the Russians are rushing towards your HQ
want are you going to do, going to do
some people would say maybe you need to call the police
but you let them in and give them din-din
you talk treason, as Bannon would say
you eye the cute lawyer wonder if you’ll get laid

when the press asks you what happened
you just shrug and say
just shrug and exclaim
it’s a nothingburger, nothingburger, nothingburger

but we all know the truth
at least those of who see
those of us who look with our eyes
something’s up between those Russian sighs
this is a big deal I’m afraid

how this is all going to go down
nobody knows, nobody knows
will the Russian bear come to stay another day
or will we kick him to the curb and start a new

when the press asks you what happened
you just shrug and say
just shrug and exclaim
it’s a nothingburger, nothingburger, nothingburger

[bridge]
but this is just what you need right now
a distraction from the truth
a distraction from your looting of the nation
what you need is a nothingburger

nothing will be the same
once your crimes are found out
once we all get to cry and shout
all about the truth
that this nothingburger is anything but

nothingburger, nothingburger, nothingburger
nothingburger, nothingburger, nothingburger
nothingburger, nothingburger, nothingburger

‘Antarctica’ — #Lyrics To A Woke #EDM Song

I am well aware that usually the beat comes first when an EDM song is produced, and I’m also well aware that I have no idea what I’m doing and I’m wasting my time. But I do enjoy telling a story in verse and I’m letting off a little bit of creative steam. So, there you go. The beat to this, in my fevered imagination, would be EDM and much like “Titanium,” with the title stretched out in the chorus.

Antarctica
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

the heat is oppressive
we have our last refuge from the elements
we didn’t listen
we didn’t heed the chorus of doom
now we’re living at the edge of the earth
waiting for the end

[pre-chorus]
the heat is oppressive
it’s messing with our minds
we’re left alone with our thoughts

[chorus]
we’re living on
Antarctica
our last hope
Antarctica
when we finally learn
Antarctica, Antarctica, Antarctica

now nothing can save us from our doom
things are full of gloom
pow goes the gun of despair
how many bullets do we have to spare

[pre-chorus]
the heat is oppressive
it’s messing with our minds
we’re left alone with our thoughts

[chorus]
we’re living on
Antarctica
our last hope
Antarctica
when we finally learn
Antarctica, Antarctica, Antarctica

[bridge]
we’re all in this together
what will we do when the end arrives
and the skies finally fall

we’re living on
Antarctica
our last hope
Antarctica
when we finally learn
Antarctica, Antarctica, Antarctica

 

 

 

 

‘No Man’s Land’ — #Lyrics To A Woke #EDM-Pop Fusion Song

The music to this would be Sia-like. It would be really dancable and pop, but the lyric would be serious. My goal is a muddle story about both a relationship coming to an end and a war between North Korea and the United States.

No Man’s Land
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

no man’s land is where we live
no man’s land is where we live

do we deserve this plight
living in fright under dirt
the end has come I’m afraid
with a burst of flames
our cities are rubble
all that’s left is stubble

but I want to believe we’ll rise again
get the chance to live in sin as friends
things have gone too far
leaving each of us with scares

no man’s land is where we live
dig in deep
no man’s land is where we live
toxic smoke makes us choke

we had our chance to live together
but it all fell apart
now we each walk alone
we do nothing but moan
love was our last resort
but we let it pass without a glance

when will this pain end
will kindness ever again be our friend
I have no idea
you tell me, you tell me, you tell me

no man’s land is where we live
dig in deep
no man’s land is where we live
toxic smoke makes us choke

[bridge]
we’re all a little crazy
the haze of destruction is all around
maybe we’ll be able survive
by sunrise

what we once had is now gone
but I still believe, believe, believe
we can still come together
and be free

no man’s land is where we live
no man’s land is where we live
