Ian asked me for a firetruck song tonight for bedtime songs. I thought maybe there might be some kind of melody hiding in the fire truck siren sound, so I started there and half-assed my way through a melody. After he went down, I thought I might have enough to make a “real” song. It only has one chord progression and melody, due to it being a kid’s song and the first song I’ve ever written, but I found a surprisingly good loop to match against, and it kind of came out as a ballad for firefighters from a kid’s perspective.
Like I said, be gentle, it’s supposed to be a little lame. And I’ve never recorded a song before either.
