The Best Part of Christmas

I was making Christmas cards for my family when I came up with the idea of composing an original Christmas carol for them instead. One thing led to another, and the result was this song performed by my brothers, sister, and I in the accompanying video. I composed this song when I was 10 years old.

Robilem karte Bozonarodzeniowa dla mojej rodziny kiedy przyszedl mi do glowy pomysl skomponowania dla nich piosenki swiatecznej. Od pomyslu do czynu, to jest wideo tej piosenka w wykonaniu moich braci, siostrzyczki i mnie. Skomponowalem muzyke i slowa (pomogli mi troche moi bracia) kiedy mialem 10 lat.

 

Get a copy of the sheet music. It’s free but a small sponsorship is appreciated and will help pay for my music education. Thank you.

 

This was my first song with a lyric accompaniment. I started by creating a short, simple, repetitive and festive melody. I then added the lyrics. That was actually the hardest part as it took me several rewrites before I found the perfect combination of sentences that fit with the melody, rhymed, and told the story that I wanted to tell.

If you are a composer, have you ever written a song with lyrics? If so, what approach did you use? Please share in the comments section below.

To jest tak naprawde moja pierwsza prawdziwa piosenka, ze slowami. Zaczalem od melodi – krotkiej, prostej, wesolej. Pozniej dodalem slowa. To byl najtrudniejszy etap, kilkakrotnie musialem zmieniac slowa, dopoki nie znalazlem najlepszego polaczenia melodi ze slowami, tak zeby rymy byly poprawne, no i zeby slowa przekazywaly to co chcialem.

Jesli komponujsze, to czy kiedykolwiek napisales utwor ze slowami do niego? Jesli tak, to jak do tego podeszles. Podziel sie ponizej.
