WE'RE ALL HEROES
Lyrics by Tom Morrison Music by Randy Bowser
From the stage show Tom and I are working on, this is a dance number that comes after the song "Zero"
which I posted recently. The main character wants to join the army to serve his country which is at war.
But he's rejected as 4F, due to his near sightedness, flat feet, and age.
This is a demo of the accompaniment, featuring the Garritan Authorized Steinway and a brass ensemble
from JABB. The other instruments are from Sonar.
I'm posting this as a video file so you can see what the lyrics and melody lines are.
You'll hear a brief reprise from "Zero" when our hero is rejected, then the examining officer repeats his verse,
this time in reference to a recruit he highly approves of instead of totally rejects as during the first verse.
Picture the recruits, awkward in their underwear (as in the Elvis photo above) but with the scene turning into
a synchronized, unlikely dance number--complete with heads turning in unison as the guys cough etc.
I had to keep the music mono in this video.

Here's a stereo MP3 of the same track.

And here's a different demo of the song, using just the Steinway and JABB instruments filling in for the singers,
so you can hear what the melodies and counterparts are.
