Musician / composer needed to write (and possibly) sing in a song to be released on youtube (and itunes)

Closed - This job posting has been filled.

Job Description

I want to be a producer for songs and I am looking for a song writer / composer / musician to write, and possibly sing, a SIMPLE song for a youtube video. The purpose is for the song and video to go viral and possibly, sell through itunes.

I am hiring you as a ghost writer and I will keep all of the copyrights to the song. Hence, you must sign a non disclosure agreement.

I have an animator(s), and want put the song to an animation. You will be working with me and I will be the intermediary between you and them. They also have several suggestions which I will inform you as we go on.


The song HAS to be original, cannot be copied, and cannot be plagiarized. The work canNOT sound like others. If the videos go viral and I am sued for plagiarism, I will show them the emails, contracts, and NDA. Consequently, I will SUE you.

I have several thoughts for different types of songs and would like to know which one interests you the most.
1. A song that can be played on the radio (eventually).

2. A song that is a kids’ song.

3. A silly, or goofy, song… Someone would comment some like this: “…This song made me laugh so hard because it is so incredibly stupid...yet I see it becoming viral or something. Oh geeze....” (Itunes comment from a song)

4. A song about love.

Here are links to the video about songs about love:

Here are links to videos about kids song:

3. Or a silly song.
It can very simple like these:

Or, this, the lastest viral video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jofNR_WkoCE

Or, can be like “ice, ice baby” or “blurred lines” or “PSY - Gangnam Style” etc.


The paragraphs in the [] are for the animators.
[ This is the SOME of criteria for the animation. Naturally, it can / will change when I have a concept for the song:
1.It must be able to put in a youtube.
2. The figure (or figures) must be simple. Possibly, cute and cuddly.
3. It must have appeal that people WILL copy and make fun of it.
4. There must be several characters
5. POSSIBLY, the audience asks: “what the heck am I watching?”
6. There must be a background.

There are specific criteria to NOT have:
1.It cannot degrade any person, race, or gender.
2. It cannot be a “symbol” for something else.
3. It cannot be racist. (If for some reason, I find out that there are racists connotations, I WILL SUE you! DO NOT TEST ME ON THIS!)
4. It cannot be negative.
5. It canNOT be someone else’s work
6.It cannot look like someone’s else work.]

There must be some criteria for your song.
1.It must SIMPLE.
2.People must be able to sing along with it.
3.It must be catchy.
4.It should make people smile.
5. It could be 3:00 to 5:00 minutes long.
6. It must be able to work in conjunction with the animations.

There are specific criteria to NOT have in the song (yes, it’s a copy and paste of the animation):
1.It cannot degrade any person, race, or gender.
2. It cannot be a “symbol” for something else.
3. It cannot be racist. (If for some reason, I find out that there are racists connotations, I WILL SUE you! DO NOT TEST ME ON THIS!)
4. It cannot be negative.
5. It canNOT be someone else’s work
6.It cannot look like someone’s else work.

You must be able to sign a nondisclosure agreement. If we agree to work together, I will upload the contract, you must download, sign it, and reupload it.

If you are interested in working with me,
1.How much do you charge per song? I pay PER PROJECT, not hourly rate. In this situation, per song.
2. How much would you charge for a group of songs?
3. How long will the song be?
4. Send me a portfolio of your work.
5. I ONLY PAY THROUGH O’DESK. If you do not agree to this, do NOT apply for the job.
6. You MUST be able to sign a contract that states that I own the music and the copyright to the music. And
7. Please give some of your suggestions for songs, lyrics, animation for song, type of music, etc.

If I like the music, I would want to continue working with you for more songs.

I have put up SIMILAR projects before. Since this is the first time doing some like this, I am putting up longer date to see people’s projects, pricing, thoughts, etc.

I am putting up a price of 60 dollars, but it might go up or down depending on everyone’s reaction.

Sincerely,
Rich
