Our third featured demo is Let’s Make This Happen by Franzu.

 

What inspired you to write this song?

I was inspired to write this because I was in love.

Describe the process/experience of creating this song from start to finish.

It was summer and it was the first song that I wrote ever since. I don’t know the process of making a song so I started with the melody before I wrote the lyrics. I was having a hard time creating the melody of the song since I wanted it to sound happy and indie. It just kicked in, you know, like the creative juice just oozed suddenly and there it was. For the lyrics, I tried to make it meaningful and related it to my feelings for this certain person. I admit it’s hard to write songs, especially if you don’t have experience with it. It took me a week to finish the whole song.I still have a lot to learn about songwriting.

 

Do you do something or listen to someone to kick start your creativity?

It depends usually. My creative juice just comes out all of a sudden. And when that time comes I just immediately open my record app and sing that melody for future purposes.

Does songwriting come naturally to you?

Songwriting is actually new to me. I think it’s a new opening for me in music. That helps me create a story out of sounds and melodies. 

Who are your biggest influences musically?

The artist who influenced me is  Bruno Mars. Yep, the one and only. I idolized him when I was a kid. And that inspired me to sing.

Let’s Make This Happen Lyrics

Let’s take a ride

Far from the city

Let’s go and have a good time

 

We’ve become more than friends

Making memories

That lasts till the end

 

Oh let’s go

Let’s dive in now like there is no tomorrow

 

Let’s make this happen

Let’s make this happen, now

Let’s make this happen

Let’s make this happen

 

Summer is starting now

Pack your things up

And be ready to move out

 

Take my hand let’s runaway

From our fears and problems

That are driving us insane

 

Oh come on,

Let’s jump in now like there is no tomorrow

 

Let’s make this happen

Let’s make this happen, now

Let’s make this happen

Let’s make this happen

 

oooohhhh hmmmm

oooohhhh hmmmm

oooohhhh hmmmm

oooohhhh hmmmm
