Breakfast Club theme song

Carolyn "Trouble" Cary hosts a weekly show called the Breakfast Club. Recorded from the River's Edge Lounge in Tucson and streamed live on the Internet, its purpose is to give exposure to local artists. We got to play there last June.

Two and a half weeks ago, Carolyn sent out a general request to Tucson musicians: The Breakfast Club needed a theme song!

How could we resist? Here you go, Miz Trouble:



ComScore
Your Backyard (Theme to the Breakfast Club)
Lyrics by Susan Wenger
Music by Cinder Bridge


1
You search the world over
To find a four-leaf clover
A little gem beyond your grasp
It's so intoxicating
To think it's out there waiting
Make you shiver make you gasp

The search goes on and on
Keeps you up 'til dawn
Out of your mind, out of your way
You survey your collection
You sense an imperfection
But what it lacks you cannot say

CHORUS
Oh, you want something better
And you make it hard
'cause the best hidden treasure's
Right in your backyard

2
You felt your body burning
An ever-present yearning
The itch you never got to scratch
Now you think all the fun
Is living on the run
Another aeroplane to catch

CHORUS
Oh, you want something better
And you make it hard
'cause the best hidden treasure's
Right in your backyard
Yeah you want something better
And you make it hard
'cause the best hidden treasure's
Right in your backyard

BRIDGE
You say there's nothing for you
In this desert wasteland
I say that you've never noticed
The desert in bloom

3
So give it half a chance
Just a tiny glance
It's got some power, got some legs
An unexpected view
Adventure in your brew
A little trouble with your steak and eggs

CHORUS
Oh you want something better
And it ain't that hard
'cause the best hidden treasure's
Right in your backyard
Yeah you want something better
And it ain't that hard
'cause the best hidden treasure's
Right in your backyard

Very catchy! No cowbell comments. But could use some bass. I like it a lot.

Hey, I like it! Especially the chorus. Did you just write it in response to her request?

Thanks!

Yes, I wrote "Your Backyard" specifically in response to her request. First time I've done such a thing, but hopefully not the last.
