We isolated the audio of Chris Christie’s inner monologue the night of Super Tuesday as he watched Trump give his victory speech. It’s a sappy Broadway ballad! Here at RobPRocks HQ we’ve amplified that audio and set it to some lovely animated photos of the event. We hope you enjoy it!
O.K., actually it’s a song I wrote as a demo for a comedy news website and I started putting some pictures together to give them an example of what I thought could be done with it visually. As the midnight hour came and went I was finishing the video but losing perspective, hitting that point in the project at which you wonder if it even makes sense anymore. But since it was a topical subject I posted it on my facebook page anyway, around 2 am last Friday, to see what people thought. Luckily some of my west coast friends were up and able to check it out right away and they not only liked it but started sharing it right away.
The arrangement is pretty simple, just piano and vocal, which is something I hadn’t tried until I wrote the song “Flashback Wife.” I’ve been playing and writing on keyboard a lot more lately, since working on my musical last year, and it’s been a lot of fun to explore this new (for me) area. I hope you like the results!
