Lyrics How Bout a Dance From Bonnie & Clyde (The Musical)

How Bout a Dance

How ‘bout a dance? What do you say?
I’ve got some moves that I’d love to show you.
Let’s find a spot and dance the night away.

How ‘bout a dance? It’s always fun.
Come over here. Let me get to know you.
Can’t beat a band to lift your spirits high.
You look so handsome.

How ‘bout a dance? Let’s make a start.
Music like this can really throw you.
You’ll lose the blues, and you may lose your heart.

Tonight is the night I’ve been waiting for.
Even the moon looks just right.
I’m sure the crowd will make room on the floor.
When they see you look like you do.

So how ‘bout a dance? Let’s make a start.
Music like this can really throw you.
You’ll lose the blues, and you may lose your heart.

You’ll lose the blues, and you may lose your heart.


How Bout a Dance’” from Bonnie & Clyde is a musical with music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black and a book by Ivan Menchell.

How I learned to write dance music and started releasing on labels — Music on DTF

A big story about finding yourself in creativity. With pictures and music.


Hi, I'm Muchkin. I write music. I make money with soundtracks for indie games, and for my soul and career I also make tracks in the genre of melodic house and techno. About how I came to composing, I wrote in a recent text. Now let me tell you about my path in dance music.

Screenshot of my latest project so far


Somewhere in the ninth grade, I first heard Prodigy - Voodoo People (Pendulum Remix) as part of a mix from DJ Stroitel. I got crazy and started to get interested in drum and bass. I listened to Pendulum, Noisia, Spor, danced drum and bass dance, which we called drumstep.

Then I thought that I also want to write the same energetic cool music with rich drum parts. I had no idea how it was done, and the search led me first to some kind of MIDI editor, in which I made a couple of songs. And then I found FL Studio, a sequencer that I've been using for over a decade. nine0003

The first tracks were terrible.

I shared them under a shameful pseudonym on PromoDJ, in an active community of fellow beginners. We intelligently criticized each other's tracks, not knowing anything at all about how music is created. But it's always like that when you start.

I once read the idea that you need to make the first 100 songs as quickly as possible, because after them normal music will follow. In my experience, yes, something like this is

nine0002 Toward the end of school, a dream began to form in me: I will learn how to make cool music for the university, and by the end of the fourth year I will become, if not a world star, then certainly a professional and respected music producer (a person who earns money by creating and performing electronic music ).


In fact, for four years at university, I basically did only three things: studied (albeit well), played video games and suffered from fears and anxieties. Despite the fact that the dream still lived somewhere on the border of consciousness, and I considered myself a music producer, writing tracks faded into the background. nine0003

It wasn't because I was lazy or because I didn't want to make music. Just because I thought of a great success in advance, creativity turned into a hard and painful task. High anxiety, disorders, traumas, and just the peculiarities of the psyche (which I realized only ten years later thanks to psychotherapy) exacerbated the situation.

For example, I wrote this track for a whole year and spent more than hundred hours on it . That was the pace at which I produced finished works at that time. nine0003

Funny story. Born in Space found some cunning guy on PromoDJ and wrote me, they say, let's release it on my label. I went nuts from the word "label" and agreed. We even signed some kind of contract through the Proton system. After that, the man disappeared. Until now, the composition can be found on streaming services - he released it ten times, probably, and all under different "labels".

I didn't make a dime from it, of course. I suspect that he is also


Among my other works during this time, one can single out this psychedelic “neurofunk”, in which everything that is possible is not in tonality. When I wrote it, I did not yet know what tonality was.

This was supposed to be an intro for my friend's YouTube show, but it never launched.

At the university, I wrote little music, but this does not mean that I did not develop creatively. I listened and analyzed bass genres a lot and sometimes through suffering I made tracks. Many did not finish. So there was progress, but very slow.

This composition also took about a year and 60-80 hours of work.

My music from this period seems to meet some minimal requirements of the genres (the structure is readable, the sounds are more or less intelligible, the kick and snare give some kind of energy, sometimes there is even a sub-bass), but they are crooked, poorly thought out and uninteresting .

I just used samples, notes and instruments that seemed appropriate and didn't think about the big picture, melody or atmosphere. And, I suspect, for the better. If I had been worried about this as well, then anxiety would have completely crushed me. nine0003

By the way, my suffering also had some advantages. From the very beginning of working in FL Studio, I decided that I needed to create all the presets for the synths myself, and so I did. By the time I received my diploma, I had a good knowledge of the standard synths of the program and even a small library of presets.

By the way, about the diploma: I wrote this experimental composition dedicated to a headache closer to the defense, which is symbolic.


After my bachelor's degree, I went to the master's program and at the same time started looking for a job. For a year and a half, I was doing all sorts of small jobs (once I even made the whole foley for a short film). I didn’t do much music, although I was able to complete a couple of projects. nine0003

For example, this future beats track inspired by Ivy Lab and Noisia Radio selections.

And an old school drum and bass remix for Dorn (there was a PromoDJ contest).

I was looking for ways to make money on music: I applied to local game and recording studios, I tried my luck in creating beats and stock tracks. In vain. As I studied the market and read the stories of more successful producers, an unbearable, terrible thought formed in my head.

To achieve something, you have to work very hard

That explained a lot.

At the beginning of 2017, I was accepted to DTF. Since childhood, I loved games, I read LKI, the Land of Games and Igromania, so I was very happy with this opportunity.

I was part of the editorial staff for almost two years. At this time it was difficult to find the strength and time for music. I watched tutorials, analyzed other people's tracks, replenished my database of samples and presets, but completed projects during this time can be counted on the fingers of one hand. nine0003

Weird downtempo project - time.

Dubstep with the voice of YouTuber Jacksepticeye - two.

Gloomy base house - three.

Drum and bass, started back in 2016, four.

I tried to send each of these tracks to labels, but they were not taken anywhere. I was surprised: how is it that they have everything. And powerful basses, and cool drums, even some interesting effects. Isn't that enough?

Oh, how little I understood.

nine0002 Composing

In the spring of 2019, I started building a career as an indie game composer. A few months later, this occupation even began to bring in some money and soon became the main one for me. (You can read about this path here.)

I found a way to make money with music and immersed myself in creativity. A little bit not the direction that I dreamed of, but still it was progress. Working on the soundtracks, I learned to feel the music better, learned new techniques and added to my own libraries even more. nine0003

As for dance tracks, at the end of 2019, aggressive and fast base house was popular, and I tried to sit on this hype train.

But no labels took the track, so I released it myself through distributor DistroKid. It was my first "adult" release - the one that appeared on streaming services. So far, I have earned exactly $0.03 on it. That's 17 auditions.

Back in the beginning of 2020, I made time for the LEAVEMEALONE halftime track.

nine0002 The flops over the past couple of years made me wonder: what is wrong with my music? Why doesn't anyone want to take it? Reflection and reflection led me to an important conclusion: in the first place, I do not make the music that I really want.

I became interested in making music thanks to drum and bass, then I started listening to dubstep and electro house, and for some reason I always felt that these genres were what I needed to work on. But as soon as I listened to myself a little (which I had never done before), it turned out that I had nothing to express through bass music. nine0003

Therefore, I spent the following months looking for genres that would most accurately reflect my inner state. They were melodic house and techno.

Brute force

Since April 2020, I have decided to get into dance music properly. Since I used to be able to create compositions only through force, I came up with a challenge for myself: to finish one track every month.

The logic was like this. By forcing myself to work on dance compositions month after month, sooner or later I had to develop all the necessary skills needed to create cool music. nine0003

I was going to basically brute force my creative powers

The first track turned out to be clumsy. The mixing is murky, there is not much development, both drops are arranged as if it were a summer banger, although a soulful melodic techno was conceived. But for starters, it will.

This track (and several others) I released again via DistroKid. Even tried to buy ads for him through Facebook. There were still few auditions (39 to date), but I was resentful of the label system after so many rejections and was determined to make a name for myself. nine0003

The next composition in May, Pasturage, was much softer. Birds, forest, nice sound design and summer rain atmosphere.

For this track, I also purchased advertising. This time I set up the ad better and invested more money, so the output was more tangible. Now he has 138 plays.

The June track Arcane turned out to be mysterious and attractive, like a Celtic forest. Hence the name.

I did not commission advertising for him, because the determination to promote myself in the music industry began to fade. I didn’t pour so much money into advertising tracks, but there was no more extra money. nine0003

The conclusion was that you can break through on your own only in two cases: if you have a lot of money for advertising (I didn’t), or if you know how to do cool PR in social networks (I didn’t know how). So I started looking towards

labels again.

Arcane was not taken to the labels (I did not even hope), but they took Autarca - the July track. Here's a snippet of it, and you can listen to it in full here.

It was released as a compilation on the sub-label of a small St. Petersburg publishing house Polyptych. I knew perfectly well that this would not bring me any money or popularity, but I signed the contract anyway. You have to start somewhere. nine0003

The next track was a bit hooligan Help a Robot. I didn't send it anywhere, because big labels wouldn't take it, and it was long and tedious to look for small labels with such music. How do you even google them? "Labels with frivolous electro-house"?

In autumn I decided to make a three-track mini-album. For some reason it seemed to me that labels were more willing to take EPs than singles.

Even by this moment I had heard a lot of music in the selected genres and realized that in melodic house and techno, few people make tracks shorter than six minutes. So from now on, all my new compositions slowly fade in and out. nine0003

In general, music has become less hasty and more conducive to immersion and thoughtful listening

As you might expect, my plan to boost my chances with labels with the EP didn't work out very well. The release was finally taken to the same Polyptych Limited (it will be released on July 5), but I was hoping for something bigger.

In December I finished the new track Rewired and decided to take a break. Working non-stop for nine months (and I also did soundtracks) without tangible results led to the fact that I just burned out. nine0003

Rest helped me rethink my priorities and figure out which way to go. I stopped caring too much about labels and started focusing more on creativity and self-expression. Plus, psychotherapy helped (and still helps) to listen to yourself better.

Rewired was included in the compilation for the Moscow label ONESUN (will be released sort of like in the summer).


I wrote the next composition at a more relaxed pace: burnout forced me to abandon the “one track per month” mode. Simultaneously with the work on the track, I was doing research. He carefully studied music in the chosen genres, pestered successful producers with questions, whom he could reach. nine0003

The result was the biggest takeaway of all time: major labels need unique music first and foremost. One that has not yet been

Within the genre, of course, although the boundaries between melodic house and techno are blurred.

How to achieve uniqueness? For me, the answer is simple: it comes from the uniqueness of the psyche. If you learn to listen well and express yourself adequately, then creativity will be unique. Therefore, when creating Bird Law in January 2020, I tried to listen as often as possible to what melodies, sounds, effects and just decisions resonate with me. nine0003

This track doesn't just meet some technical requirements, it's undeniably my . For example, the title is taken from a comic book that I really like.

It's the law

And the theme of birds in it is not only because of the name, but also because these animals (but not all) touch me and my wife very much. And also partly a track about the love that I feel for my wife, and this has something in common with the comic book. In general, a warm work about good things. The ones in me. nine0003

I don't know how noticeable this is to the outside listener, but I see a massive improvement over the previous compositions. He was even taken to a more serious label - the Italian Natura Viva. They promised to release it as part of a compilation. I don't know when exactly: for some reason, labels rarely notify me about such things, and I myself don't really care. I'm more focused on future works.

The last track so far is called You're Not What Your Mind Tells You. It's about my many battles with my own brain. It is a little sad, but with a light undertone, because no matter how scary the battles are, there is always a possibility to win. At least I can. nine0003

The other day I signed him to the Belgian label Sound Avenue. It will first be released exclusively on Spotify to try and push it into the platform's playlists, and will be released as part of a sub-label compilation in August.

After You're Not What Your Mind Tells You, I again rethought my creative process. Now I try to treat music less as a series of separate projects and more just as a field for experiments, from which cool completed projects will grow. Let's see where this takes me. nine0003

Such things. Thanks for reading. By the way, I will soon launch a course on creating electronic music from scratch. If interested, you can read the details here.

If you like my music, you can subscribe to Soundcloud, YouTube or Spotify. All my future tracks will appear there as well. Also here are my social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Twitch.

At present, it is quite difficult to make an ordered list of existing musical genres. There are too many of them, and two random (and at first glance unrelated) genres can create a third, completely new one, which can then be combined with another one - and so on ad infinitum. nine0003

Today the team will tell you about musical genres - their definition, features and key differences.

Bonus: at the end of the article you will find a small checklist that allows to determine the musical genre of .

What is a musical genre? Excursus into history

A musical genre is a system of style, arrangement, text and a platform for performance.

You may be wondering about the last item in the definition, the speaking area. For example, there is an opinion that such a genre as "garage rock" appeared due to the fact that musical groups preferred to rehearse in garages, but this is nothing more than a bike. nine0003

Stadium rock, oddly enough, is distinguished by its scale, loudness and the venue of the event - the stadium. Mass is celebrated mainly in churches, etc.

Chamber music

Chamber music is performed in a small room and for a relatively small number of listeners. The simplest example of a chamber concert is a house concert.

Folk music is the most widespread genre of chamber music, since most often such music is performed in the family circle and mainly by the older generation. The words of a song can change countless times, but the melody almost always remains the same. nine0003

Romance is a lyrical song performed to the accompaniment of one instrument.

Ballad is a song that tells about a specific story or legend. As a rule, praises or describes some hero.

Requiem is a Catholic chant, performed for the dead.

Vocalise is a song without words used both as an element of a composition and as a vocal training.

Serenade is a song dedicated to and/or performed by one person. Usually a woman.

Vocal music

The main role in vocal music is played by the voice. If there are any instruments in the composition, they recede into the background. This also includes chamber music.

Oratorio is a large-scale secular or religious work performed by an orchestra or choir.

A cappella - vocal performance without musical accompaniment. Some modern a cappella bands imitate the sound of other instruments with their voice (Van Canto, Pentatonix).

Vocalise - vocal performance in which singing is a collection of specific or random sounds, but not words. Most often used as a warm-up for the voice.

Instrumental music

Instrumental music does not use vocals. Absolutely all parts are performed by musical instruments. nine0003

Symphony is an orchestral piece of music.

Sonata - solo or duet instrumental performance in the chamber genre.

Russian folk songs

Chastushki is the most popular genre of Russian folk song, which did not require special musical abilities from the performer. The repeating progression of chords and quatrains - that's the whole description of the ditty.

Labor songs - appeared in Soviet times to increase the morale of workers. As a rule, they were performed by people during work.

Legend on the topic: there is an opinion that such a technique of playing the guitar as “shuffle” (or rather, it is more of a rhythmic pattern) appeared in the USA when people traveled by trains, and the only rhythm that they had was this is the sound of wheels, under which they sang.

Songs for round dances - performed during round dances and depended on the speed of the round dance and its occasion. nine0003

Lyrical song (epic) - a song dedicated to the heavy burden of a person or an entire nation.

Contemporary music

There are unimaginably many genres of contemporary music, but most often they are derived from one genre or arising from two.

Rock music

Rock music has brought more to the world than you might think. Thanks to rock, genres such as:

Pop-rock – light music intended for a wide range of listeners, slightly weighted pop music.

Folk rock - modern sound and instruments combined with folk instruments and motifs.

Hard rock is heavy music from which many other genres stem - metal, gothic rock, thrash rock, viking rock and even black and roll (a mixture of rock and roll and black metal). For example, Kvelertak.

Punk rock is simple music that reflects the mood of the society to a greater extent. Over time, punk rock has split into dozens of sub-genres. nine0003

Pop music

Developed in parallel with rock music, but later adopted several features: the use of electric guitars with overdrive and other effects, as well as the form of performance. However, modern pop music is mostly electronic.

House - electronic music, which is characterized by its "squareness" (4/4 time signature) and speed - 120-140 BPM. Most often you can hear in clubs. Related genre - Deep House which is a slower and more melodic version of its parent.

Trance is the opposite of house, so to speak. If fast motifs and repetitive melodies predominate in house, then trance is in most cases more melodic and minor, but the performance speed reaches 160 BPM.

Disco - dance pop music designed for a wide range of people. It was wildly popular in the 70s and 80s. In the future, a genre such as New Disco , which has a modern sound, but based on motives from the 70s and 80s.


Hip-Hop developed in parallel with rock and pop music. We can say with confidence that at the end of the last century he kept himself apart, and the music of that time is called old school.

Hip-hop is characterized by elements such as rap and electronic music. The use of live instruments is minimal.

However, modern rap musicians at their live concerts prefer to use electric guitars, bass and live drums, which together with beats gives a very rich sound. nine0003

The genre is popular, and therefore it is currently mixed with other genres:

Rapcore is a tandem of rock and hip-hop.

Alternative rap - hip hop plus any other genre (jazz rap, funk rap, etc.).

In addition, there are such genres as hardcore rap, gangsta rap, child rap (from the word Dirty - dirty).

Secular and sacred music

Sacred music can be heard in churches in 99% of cases. Since the beginning of the Middle Ages, there has been no significant change and development in church music. nine0003

Liturgy – describe sacred events and scriptures in the form of songs. Accompanied by a theatrical performance.

Antiphon - a style of choral performance in which two (or more) choirs sing alternately.

Mass is prayer-based church music.

Secular music

It originates in the Middle Ages, when musicians were required to present the culture of the state to its guests. Itinerant musicians were also regarded as performers of secular music due to the fact that they performed music in various cities and countries while traveling. nine0003

Specific genres

There are genres that defy description.

First of all, if earlier music, style of performance and sound could somehow be tied to a geographical place, then due to the development of the Internet, some modern music has a completely unique sound.

Secondly, new genres appear due to the development of the music industry in commercial terms. For example, a composer was given an order to write music for a video game or a movie, and as a result, music for a media product becomes no less popular. This includes various soundtracks and trailer music that can later be performed by symphony orchestras. nine0003

Of course, the description is endless, so we suggest you familiarize yourself with the following musicians and composers: Mick Gordon, Hanz Zimmer, John Williams, Akira Yamaoka, Two Steps From hell.

How to define a musical genre?

Step one : think about the instruments used in the composition.
