TRACK 1️⃣ on my album "One Hit Wonder" is... the title track “One Hit Wonder”! 👨🎤⚡️
I started writing this song at the end of 2017, and re-wrote it about 20 times before I finally got it right. When writing a song I always try and find a different way to say something common (like “I love you”, “let’s party”, “f**k off”, etc. 😂).
"One Hit Wonder" is a metaphor for lightning striking and finding "the one". ⚡️💘👨❤️💋👨 Songs are very much like relationships in many ways. Some are fun and light-hearted, some are deeper and more complicated... but there’s always that one that holds a special place in your heart.
Obviously it’s about my hubby @omgchampagne. It’s hard to find new ways to say “I love you” when you’ve been together as long as we have, so I wrote this song for him as a surprise for our #manniversary two years ago. ☺️
The song is an homage to the great one hit wonders of the ‘80s… colourful, fun, a little cheesy, and most definitely easy to love... just like Mike. 😜 I recorded it on October 10, 2018, and shot the video by myself on October 17th in front of a shitty green screen in our living room so I could surprise him for our anniversary. And I did! 🥰
Anyway, it’s a fun little earworm that I’m super proud of and a fitting opener and theme for the album (y’know… since I only had one “hit” with Champagne 😂). It’s also the hardest song to sing that I’ve written, and I did all my own harmonies and stuff which I thought was pretty cool! 😎
