This is my first blog post where I’m participating in Throwback Thursday. I thought it would be fun to write about the first song I ever wrote. It’s called “Flying.” I wrote it in the fifth grade, and I was 11 years old.
I only wrote lyrics and a melody for this song, and I recorded it at Six Flags Great America when the theme park used to have a “recording studio” called Big Time Recording Studios. For more of the story behind the song, please check out my blog post “How Did It All Start?”.
I was excited to post about this song on my blog and was looking ALL OVER the place for the CD, when finally I asked myself Could it have been on a tape? Sure enough, the recording was on a cassette tape.
I remember writing the song about some boy I liked in the fifth grade and singing the song in front of my classmates. 😉 When I recorded this song at Six Flags and Big Time Recording Studios played the song on their loud speakers, I remember feeling so embarrassed and excited that my original song was playing aloud for people to hear! 😀
It’s pretty exciting to go from having an original song on a cassette tape that had the name of my song and my first name on it, to a CD that has my full name, a whole track list of original songs with instrumental accompaniment, and my picture. 😉
