WHO IS TIRED OF HEARING ADELE’S SONG “HELLO”?
I decided to write a song for my Summary of Learning because I thought it would be a challenge for me. It’s difficult to summarize knowledge from an entire semester and give an accurate idea of what was discussed (never mind doing that in a song). I definitely had some issues with fitting the words “misogynist” and “pedagogy” while keeping the same rhythm to the song. Here is the final product:
I struggled mainly with two things:
- Adele knows how to sing hard songs without making them sound difficult. This song is really soft in some parts and then really loud during the chorus. The microphone I was using wasn’t a big fan of this change of dynamic so I had to sit far away from the microphone.
2. Making a lyric video is not as easy as it looks. The first few attempts cut off important lyrics and/or the lyrics didn’t align with my song. It was frustrating. I’ll give you an idea of how I created the lyric video below.
In order to make the lyric video, I used a few different programs:
- The first website I used was called LRC Generator. This website creates .lrc files with the lyrics to whatever song you choose. I always wondered how people would sync up words with music on karaoke videos and now I know. Family Christmas will never be the same again.
- The process is rather tedious because you need to write lyrics line-by-line with ~ 3-5 words per line. Want a longer sentence on your lyric video? ABORT. The program I used to make my lyric video would cut off lines that were too long.
- The generator I linked also allows you to download your lyrics as a .txt file, which you will also need to create a lyric video.
- The second program I used was called YouTube Movie Maker. This program requires your .lrc and .txt file and generates the font and background of your video. It’s a pretty simple program to use and this video tutorial shows you how create a final lyric video.
That’s it my lovely EC&I 831 people!
I had an absolutely blast learning from all of you.
