October 27, 2022  -  User Showcase Song - Eleanor Lennox: Raccoon in a Dumpster

Raccoon in a Dumpster

Some interesting information that you might not be interested in:
Why that weird song title?
Well, a while back I saw a question/answer segment on the Ellen show where Taylor Swift used
the phrase "like a raccoon in a dumpster", and I liked it so much that I added it to my "phrases I want to use in one of my songs someday" list. I had to google what a raccoon was first, though.

Fast forward to 2022, I saw a talk by Linda Perry at ASCAP where she mentioned that Rihanna's song "Umbrella" has a weird title and song lyric, but that's the one thing that make this song stand out and that sticks in your mind. It "clicked" and I wrote an entire song around that phrase

So the thanks go to Taylor Swift, Linda Perry and especially our own Marty BabuMusic for proofreading the lyrics and general support.
And also a big thank you to the guys over at the songwriting forum. The chorus changes key, and the guys there helped me find my way back to the original key.

Oh, and as a "thank you" to PG-Music, there's a product placement in the video

The video isn't too sophisticated this time, I'm a songwriter first and foremost and videos are very time consuming.
They are only there anyway to prevent you from falling asleep while listening to my songs.
