Strong in the Real Way, the Demo! 

I wrote this song in the desert! It’s dedicated to my crew! I want to be their rock!

Here are the chords!

Verse 1:

G                EbM7           Bb            D                           G

Why do you have to look up to her, aside from in a literal sense

              EbM7         Bb                  D C7

Don’t you know that a power that big comes with a bigger expense

      F            Eb              BbM7

And can’t you see that she’s out of control and overzealous

     B7                               Em                  C7

I’m telling you for your own good and not because I’m



Chorus 1:

G                     EbM7       B       D                G

I can show you how to be strong… in the real way

                       EbM7       B        D                Cm7

And I know that we can be strong… in the real way

        D7           Gm

And I want to inspire you

 C7                    F                     Bb                  D

I want to be your rock and when I talk, it lights a fire in you

I can show you how to be strong… in the real way

                       EbM7       B        D                Cm7

And I know that we can be strong… in the real way

        D7           Gm

And I want to inspire you

 C7                    F                     Bb                  D

I want to be your rock and when I talk, it lights a fire in you

We loved arranging “Strong in the Real Way” - thank you Rebecca for being our “rock”! There are several people who helped bring this song to life. What you’re hearing is the result of Rebecca’s amazing songwriting, Grant’s blazing guitar playing, Roger’s fierce drum fills, and Deedee and Zach’s inspiring vocals! (I played the piano and synths.) Thank you everyone for your incredible performances!!!

This is the demo for the Big Donut training video song from the most recent episode of Steven Universe, “Joking Victim”.  Lyrics by me and Paul Villeco.  Music by Jeff Liu, Rebecca Sugar and me.

Now this just the first part of the song.  The other verses were separated out so that we could transition between them and make it seem like Steven had been watching the video forever.  But the bonus of this demo is you get to hear me get really goofy at the end.

In the actual episode, Mr. Smiley (played by Sinbad) sings this tune.  It was one of the highlights of my life to get in the booth and nervously ask a legendary comedian to sing a jingle I wrote about donuts.  But he did it and it was great!

"Heaven Beetle (Reprise)" from Giant Woman.

surasshu came up with the original Heaven Beetle theme, which plays when Steven, Pearl, and Amethyst journey to the Sky Spire. I arranged this version of his pretty song for the final scenes of the episode.

We love this shot of the Heaven Beetle’s room! Little beetle Sega Genesis, little beetle ceiling fan, little beetle succulent…

We found a rip of the Golf Quest Mini OST! It’s not as good as we remembered, but it has nostalgic value…
