Week #20 A ‘House’ Song July 18, 2011

Posted by Andy in video.

Week #20 of the Songwriters Circle Challenge suggests that you can write a House Song.

This can be a song from the 1990’s “House Music” genre, or a song about a house.

House Music has a specific style of rythm which I find hard to describe in words. It’s basically four four with the accent on every beat, ONE-TWO-THREE-FOUR-and-ONE-TWO….

Songs about houses are a somewhat UK centric phenomena, but I’m sure there are examples worldwide to prove me wrong as well.

From my own terrible memory alone, I can point to

“Our House” Madness
“Neighbourhood” – Space
“House on The Hill” – Kevin Koyne
“Country House” – Blur
“Bungalow Bill” – Lennon/McCartney
and of course… “House of The Rising Sun” – Animals/Trad

Looking forward to hearing your House songs!
