Bruno is BACK with 24K Magic

bruno-mars-bellagio-fountainsWe all remember what a terrific success Bruno Mars had with Uptown Funk in the fall of 2014. The song was written by Mark Ronson and featured Bruno Mars on vocals. The incredible groove was an instant hit. After extensive touring in 2015, Bruno is about to release a brand new album called 24K Magic.

While the full album is not due out until mid-November, the first song is available NOW. The song’s title is the same as the name of the album, 24K Magic. Unfortunately, there are a few words that are not at all appropriate for use in dance routines with youngsters. And that is where Squirrel Trench Audio is at your service with the very first SQUEAKY CLEAN version that eliminates all of the objectionable content. Words that have been eliminated include “sh*t”, “bad b*tches and yo ugly-ass friends”, “pimp”, and one additional occurrence of “sh*t”.

Squirrel Trench Audio has four squeaky clean versions to choose from. The full-length clean version is 3:42 in length, and additional edits are: 2:48, 2:37, and 2:19.

Warrior for Peace

serra_angel_greg_staplesIt’s only appropriate to announce Warrior for Peace, an original spoken word soundtrack on International Peace Day. This emotional and relevant message was voiced by a 15-year-old dancer. Several dance teachers have gotten advance copies and will be using it this season. This unique 3:00 soundtrack is designed for a competition or recital dance routine.

The opening lines:
I will not give into fear
I refuse to learn how to hate
Even if you try to knock me down
Even though you might make me angry,
Even if you tell me I should be afraid,
I will remain a warrior for peace.
