Start-Up! 创 was recently on Channel U,
starring Rebecca Lim, Tay Ping Hui, Kate Pang and Zhang Zhen Huan...
I was fortunate to meet the very passionate and dedicated director Phillip Lim who roped me into this project.
Drama theme songs are usually churned out in a very efficient manner,
but for this one, it was really the brainchild of Phillip and his trusted music partner Jonichiro Takahashi, and me! :)
We also had several sessions of brainstorming for the musical style and direction before we confirmed the melody, and the arrangement was also tweaked several times!
I was tasked with the lyrics, and we also wanted to include some English words in it for the urban touch.
This story was about challenges in entrepreneurship, and had to be inspirational, so we eventually decided on a cinematic soundscape that sounded waaay bigger than for TV :)
U 频道 《创!》 主题曲 (Channel U's Start Up Theme Song)
Music: Jonichiro Takahashi
Lyrics: Tay Kewei
同样的悔过 同样的脆弱 共同的脉搏
不要再等候 不要再懦弱 命运自己掌握
开创新的以后 下定决心 就绝不退缩
勇闯未来的梦 相信自己 就放手一搏
Starting now 热血 带领我 冒险
同样的借口 同样的节奏 时间不停留
现在是时候 现在就行动 不向现实低头
Repeat Prechorus, Chorus
下一刻 会走到 终点
