Song Lab – “Hey Thunder Dan 2.0”

So we wrote and filmed a movie called “Zeus”, and it will be out in the Spring. Since last summer, I’ve been writing and recording songs and sketches to use in the film and posting them when complete. Some work; others don’t. The purpose of this “Lab” is to create, first and foremost. Then we’ll sort out this mess later in the form of an official soundtrack, which will be available for free download.

Last week, I posted a shorter version of this instrumental. Initially, I had recorded a lengthier intro but cut it out at the last minute because the riffs sounded too similar to some of the other stuff I’ve put down. Instead, I edited the riffs out and jumped right into the more lively “Hey!” part. But, after a number of listens, I’m beginning to prefer the original. Ultimately, we’re going with this version for the film.
