Panting put under pressure with 1-hour songwriting challenge
The songwriting process can sometimes be a love affair – a struggle over how to perfectly combine lyrics and melodies. This is not one of those times.
We bring St. Johns musician Sean Panting to the point, big time.
You propose the subject and he’ll write a parody song about it – in an hour. Panting will then play the tune on St. John’s Morning Show.
“Around five to eight I began to think that maybe I had made a mistake in coming up with this idea,” Panting said on Friday, just before performing his first hour-long miracle live on CBC radio. “But it worked out fine. The power of panic.”
On its debut, aquaculture was the theme. See what he has come up with in this video.
Share your thoughts on topics you’d like to perform a song about in the coming weeks.
