TAKE ME TO PARADISE 

ANALYSIS

Take me to Paradise - written and composed by Emmet Glascott, featuring Sandra Bullet.

“Take me to paradise” - encapsulates a hazy, hallucinatory, transient ambience. One that sometimes evokes a tropical seaside vista, yet, rhythmically and lyrically, the late night themes awakens a kaleidoscopic view of a more urban environment, a cityscape successfully captivated by intermingling chillout with some techno beats. The verses, punctuated with arrhythmic clinks and low frequency pulses, conjure visions of darkly foreboding streets that starkly contrast with the splendor of palm filled sunset beaches. Hence the desire is revealed - Take me to Paradise!

 Guitar/piano/ukulele chords for this song are available on CHORDIFY. Lyrics also available on GENIUS

DOWN FOR YOU

ANALYSIS

Emmet Glascott Featuring: Gillian Baci | Genre: Tropical House | Release Date: 12th October, 2018

Down For You is a 'make-up' song about going back to the one you love— whom you broke up with—even though it means going against yourself. In writing these words, the aim was to recreate something that anyone who has had to go back to a love that also brought them pain could relate to. Melodically, the choice was made to match the beat’s dynamic nature. This first verse serves as an introduction to the issue at hand; following the break-up, you’re having regrets and second-guessing your decision to leave. The third line highlights the duality of your relationship with the person and the power they have over you, seeing they hold both pain and pleasure. The last two lines serve as a refrain, teasing the song’s major point. The first line of the pre-chorus piggybacks on the image in the song’s first line. The second highlights the seriousness of the conundrum you find yourself in. The next two lines show the battle that rages within still. Although your lover brings hell, the refrain (last two lines) hits again, this time, stronger than the first. This leads us into the main decision that lays in wait at the chorus. This chorus delivers the song’s main message: you can come back and break me again because I’d rather be with you, and even if I have to fight myself, then I’ll go down for you.

General chord progression throughout is D A G Bm.

 LYRICS

(Verse 1) Now I’m back here and I’m thinking I’m screaming, I’m feeling I don’t know. I wanted out but now I can’t think of any reason to let go. Drowned me in pain but you’re also the one that holds all’a the pleasure. I will die for you, fight myself, go down for you.

(Verse 2) You got me here now. You're knelling and begging for me not to let go. You broke the walls and you left our love in the eye of the cold storm. I take my pieces and mend them so we can go back to the summer cause I will die for you. Fight myself go down for you.

(Pre-Chorus) Got me in silence. Thinking of violence. I cannot take it. Unwilling resistance. You are my heaven and you bring me hell too. Still I will die for you, fight myself, go down for you.

(Chorus) Why don’t you come have another piece of me. You take one and you can get two more for free. You can take it all you can leave with me. I will die for you. Fight myself go down for you.

(Bridge) Oh baby, Oh baby go down for you. Oh baby,  oh fight myself go down for you. For you. (x10

(Chorus) Why don’t you come have another piece of me. You take one and you can get two more for free. You can take it all, you can leave with me. I will die for you. Fight myself go down for you.  (x2)

There are many personal qualities
essential to what I do, here are some…

Passion

Once you find your passion, it changes everything. I'm so pasionate about my music. Passion is imperative in this business!

Perfectionism

I critique my music more thoroughly than anyone else could.

Diligence

What people don't see is the hard work that goes in to making a song. All people get to know about is what's in those three minutes of the song.

Ambition

I want to create memories for people. I want to create anthems for big moments in their lives.
