White Rock Beach Idol? Some possible words for the “White Rock Beach Song”

We have had some responses to our idea of a song for White Rock Beach.

Below is our first revision shopping list of some possible words.

We are looking for a person or group that can produce a song where the vocals overpower the music (not the music washing out the words).

Rock, Folk, Ballad, Rap — if you can help make something we like – LETS TALK.

(NO MONEY INVOLVED – ONLY FREE PROMOTION – this is not a paying job)

Follow us on TWITTER @BCwhiterock

Follow us on TWITTER @BCwhiterock


We want to try and duplicate something similar to what we did for the Black Squirrels of London Song in 2003.

music-notes

We supplied a shopping list of things to be included in the Black Squirrels of London song and the final product was amazing – click the RED button and judge for yourelf.downloader_r1_c2_f2[1]

We want something original, and not set to music already published. We do not want any copyright claims. The song will be offered for FREE ONLINE – NOT SOLD.  We can make a video with images of White Rock Beach postcards for YouTube. Ideally all we need is a high quality MP3 – we might see if a local recording studio wants to help – first we need a a song to record before asking. If you can get a booking to sing this song – you keep any performing fees. We have a Sea Festival coming up, Canada Day, and many more events.

peter-park

We will create a feature page on WhiteRockBeach.ca / WhiteRockZone.com for you and your group and linked to your site or social media, etc. We want to have a say in the final product we use on our site. We want unlimted uses for our sites or broadcasting at NO CHARGE. We offer FREE promotion online and will help with some photography and other services for FREE.  Ric Wallace has been on many TV networks in Canada and the USA (seen by over 300 million viewers worldwide), and might be able to get you on TV.  He is working on pitching a followup show (in BC) where he was featured, along with others I helped get on TV.  We want to work with people not camera or TV shy- think of this as White Rock Beach Idol. – LOL   We want to make you famous.

See this posting: We need a SONG to help promote White Rock Beach

Anyone can create their own song NOT meeting our guidelines and place on Youtube without our permission, but you may not get the help of us to promote it.  If we like it we might give you a FREE plug in a posting at no charge. Help us produce what we envision, and we will try our best to get you lots of attention.

============================================

Some possible words for the song – not cast in stone or rock.

RED – would really like in the song.
Blue – maybe in the song.
Black – just ideas – up to you

We need a SONG to help promote White Rock Beach

raybandsThe gang at WhiteRockBeach.ca want a song to futher expand our efforts of promoting White Rock Beach  – the hole in the sky. We tried unsuccessfuly to interest a few musicans over 4 years ago Lucky has put his paw down – HE WANTS A SONG ON OUR SITE this summer. So far we have 90 White Rock Beach / South Surrey postcards, greeting cards, magnets, a White Rock Beach Lucky Coin and a keychain, wall art, photographic prints and a COOL web site – WhiteRockBeach.ca. We need a song and a drone to take COOL photos for this site and more postcards. Purchasing these items helps fund our efforts and maybe give Lucky the title of AERIAL DRONE PILOT / PHOTOGRAPHER – COOL. We are also looking for POSTCARD SPONSORS.

Lucky has done this before and enlisted the help of some talented people, producing a COOL song as an MP3 for FREE and later making a video of the Black Squirrels in Victoria Park, London, Ontario. We released the website Victoria-Park.com on Victoria Day May 24, 2003. We enlisted the help of others to create a song. We plan on doing the same for White Rock Beach.

There will be a separate posting of the shopping list for theWhite Rock Beach – the hole in the sky” song.

Lucky supplied a shopping list of things to be included in the Black Squirrels of London song and the final product was amazing – click the RED button and judge for yourelf.
downloader_r1_c2_f2[1] A London, Ontario recording studio bordering Victoria Park in London, Ontario wanted $2400 to master the song and could have had great exposure. They turned us down for FREE promotion and later went out of business (they missed the opportunity of a lifetime). We did the song for FREE in Peter Snell’s basement and a spare bedroom at Dan Rutledge’s home. There is a recording studio in White Rock we might be able to do it for FREE for credit – if not, we will find another way.

peter-parkA film crew from Boston, came to Victoria Park in London Ontario to film
Peter Snell singing
  the Black Squirrels of London Song for American TV.
blackie2

THE BLACK SQUIRRELS OF LONDON has been performed many places, including live on TV, in Victoria Park at the bandshell and on the radio in Canada and the USA.  TLC’s Lottery Changed My Life even came up from the USA to film the squirrels in Victoria Park.

tlc-vpc-famous[1]

Current White Rock Beach, BC resident “LUCKY the Lottery Squirrel ” used to panhandle for peanuts in Victoria Park London, Ontario and would meet with media wanting the scoop on the park and the squirrels.

How Lucky helped create a song for the Victoria-Park.com site:

This is from the email sent to Peter Snell in 2003

I am not a singer or musician, you are the artist.  I only want to give a few guidelines…

up-beat tempo to make it memorable and something I hope local stations will want to play.
I would like to review the words before you record.

===========================================
These are the guidelines of the song sent to Peter Snell May 05, 2003 11:20 AM

The words in RED made the final cut.

I would like the name to be

THE BLACK SQUIRRELS OF LONDON.
This will promote the black squirrel population of London and Ontario

I would like have partial credit for the lyrics

Lyrics by: Peter Snell & Ric Wallace & Sheila Tofflemire
Composed by : Peter Snell

I do not care about any royalties.

I would like to use the song on the web site and also incorporate into multi media @ no charge.

MAKING THE SONG AVAILABLE FOR FREE WILL GET EXPOSURE

These are some of the words or ideas I want incorporated into the song.
You are the composer. (the words in RED made it into the song)

Vicky the victoria park squirrel
mention the holy roller ( sherman tank)
they gather at the holy roller at dawn and dust
cannons – 3 of them
share your lunch with a squirrel
the forest city
the squirrels of London were exported to Kent state university in the 60’s.
now populate the state
Kent state shares our pride of our squirrels
they climb the hills and trees of London.

chorus
Squirrels are the best things to grow on trees on trees
the squirrels of Victoria Park are the friendliest goodwill ambassadors
Always attentive and ready to do a trick
they are now cyber squirrels on the web at victoria-park.com  (very important to mention the web site )
So help show our pride

peter-snellThe mp3 song was produced in 2003; this video was produced in 2005.
We can do a better job today in HD or maybe 4K.

The Black Squirrels of London

There’s a little bit of heaven in London
In a downtown park near city hall,
Trees are home to the squirrels,
Attractions of nature call……………..
CH.  –  Vicky, in Victoria Park
Vicky, London’s black squirrel
Goodwill from the Forest City,
Welcome every boy and girl…
Vicky, in Victoria Park,
Vicky, London’s black squirrel….
Log her in on your computer,
Victoria  dash  Park  dot com,
Victoria  dash  Park  dot com.

Any day, come and visit Vicky
Near the “Holy Rollertank on display,
Share your lunch with some squirrels,
Watch them jump on the cannon as they play….CH

Many years ago in the 60’s
Black squirrels of London were exported far away.
To Kent State University,
They populate the state today…. CH

Lyrics by:  Peter Snell, Sharron Snell, Ric Wallace, Sheila Tofflemire  and Dan Rutledge
Composed and arranged by:  Peter Snell and  Dan Rutledge

lucky-sean Anyone who creates a song with our approval gets FREE exposure on this site, some FREE photography, a White Rock Beach Lucky Coin and some other COOL stuff (sorry no cash). We have many conections with the media and will try to get you on TV – See the video below.

Any interested musician / composer please use our contact form for more details.

The gang here is working on a shopping list of words for the song.

We would also entertain the idea of a couple diferent verions of the song. Anyone can create their own song about White Rock Beach and do not need our permission. If you want our endorsement on WhiteRockBeach.ca and the song on this site, plus FREE media promotion, contact us and we will help create something that has never been done. You could think of this as White Rock Beach Idol – LOL.

Ric Wallace and postcards were featured on the Discovery Family channel in the USA in 2014. Sharp Entertainment in New York City has contacted him on many occasions as he has been on two of the shows they produce. He has been seen by over 300 million TV viewers in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, etc. A follow-up story of what he is doing is of interest to their viewers.
