about

Have you ever wondered if there may be something like a Superstar Gene that every superstar has? Well, I did.So I thought I throw this idea out there in form of a fun song. I haven't written a more pop-music type song in a while, and since I was at it, I also thought it would be fun to throw in some old school EDM effects. Every instrument on this track was programmed and recorded by me, using Apple's amazing Logic Pro X DAW. I also mixed it in Logic, without any additional third party plug-ins.
The lead vocals were performed by Nathan Niederkorn, and the female rap was performed by Marquecia Jordan. Both were recorded by Andrew Twiss at Twiss Audio in Chicago.
In addition to those "real" voices I used a ton of Apple Loops for all the Yeahs, Ohs, etc). Really cool what Apple gives you right out of the box.
The main drum track I created with Apple's super intuitive "Drummer" track feature. Amazing tool!
I am planing on posting a video about the creation process soon.
have fun, and feel free to contact me with any suggestions, feedback, or questions.

lyrics

Superstar Gene
Words & Music by Thomas Gunther

Verse 1:
She was born like this,
Had no say in it,
She got the gene of a superstar.
She didn’t ask for it,
Nature decided for her,
Gave her the gene of a superstar.

Verse 2:
She never dreamed of being a celebrity,
It just naturally happened for her.
And everything she touches,
turns into gold it’s true,
She's got the gene of a superstar.

Bridge:
Whatever she does every girl wants to do,
There’s nothing ’bout her boys don’t like.
Whatever she says we belief it’s true,
Even when she’s out of her mind.

Chorus:
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene,
Uh....
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene.

Verse 3:
She won’t need much sleep,
No makeup at all.
Always looks like the top model type.
She can eat what she wants,
Without ever getting fat,
There’s nothing to worry about.

Verse 4:
She won’t need to work out,
‘Cause she’s in better shape,
Than 99 percent of the pack.
She can drink like a fish,
without ever getting sick,
Her mind is as sharp as a tac.


Bridge:
Whatever she does every girl wants to do,
There’s nothing ’bout her boys don’t like.
Whatever she says we belief it’s true,
Even when she’s out of her mind.

Chorus:
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene,
Uh....
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene.

Special:
She's the hottest living thing under the sun,
All she ever wants is have some fun.
She never looks said, and you know way?
Cause superstar girls have no reason to cry.

Chorus:
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene,
Uh....
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene.

Girl Rap:
I'm the pride of the nation,
the perfect creation,
a man's sweetest dream,
the ultimate temptation.
Boys wanna add me to their girls collection.
They'd love to get a piece of my hot superstar action.
You may be as hot as hell,
but never be my man,
Until you show me you love me,
for who I really am.

Out-Chorus: (with variations)
She got the superstar gene, superstar gene,
Uh....
