A Climate In Chaos 2022

Hello music lovers and climate warriors!

Daphodil Music are proud to have collaborated on another exciting musical project with WIRRAL IN THE SUNSHINE on their fantastic 2022 film titled — ‘A Climate In Chaos (and how we can help)’, inspired by the book by the ultimate climate warrior author Neal Layton, of the same title.

Watch the film A Climate In Chaos here:

Composing the theme song A Climate In Chaos was such a privilege and so much fun.

The verses and the bridge sections are spoken rhythmically, because rap is such a powerful songwriting tool for conveying urgent messages. And climate change is a hugely important and urgent issue! The bridge also has a little nod to recent speeches made by another notable climate activist, can you guess who*? (scroll all the way down to find out)

Our favourite way of raising awareness, creating change and mobilising people into action is through music and song, and we hope you enjoy singing along and thinking about the important message of this song.

A Climate In Chaos – Lyrics:

Verse 1:

Have you heard of climate change?
We hope this doesn’t sound too strange
It affects all living things
Everything that grows and springs.

Earth has been so good to us
But now the climate’s in chaos
Many gases fill the sky
And temperatures are getting high!

Chorus:

Reduce your waste, reuse your things
Plant a tree and eat your greens
Switch off electricity
Walk or cycle, then you’ll see

It is not too late for us
To save a climate in chaos
We can make a change together
Make our future better!

Verse 2:

Humans sometimes make bad choices
Burning fuels and chopping forests
We’ll run out of food and water
If the Earth keeps getting hotter.

The effects are wide and dire
Heavy winds, and rains and fires
Creatures lose their habitats
Don’t dispute the science stats!

Chorus:

Reduce your waste, reuse your things
Plant a tree and eat your greens
Switch off electricity
Walk or cycle, then you’ll see

It is not too late for us
To save a climate in chaos
We can make a change together
Make our future better!

Bridge:

Yo! Listen up, no more empty words
It’s time to get our message heard
Take care for our planet today
Before our chances melt away

This is more than just the weather
It is whether we’ll survive
Tick tock, it is now or never
Let’s make sure that life on Earth can thrive!

Final Chorus:

Reduce your waste, reuse your things
Plant a tree and eat your greens
Switch off electricity
Walk or cycle, then you’ll see

It’s not too late for us
To save a climate in chaos
We can make a change together
Make our future better!

All Kids Music And Songs

One of my favourite aspects of music is creating. Composition and Song-Writing are such an amazing creative outlet and I enjoy both creating and inspiring others to express themselves through original music making. I love writing songs for children to sing and enjoy, and always incorporate this into my music teaching.

Here are all of our Daphodil Music songs; Have a listen and enjoy!

The Extinct Animal Songs Project was our first singing and recording project in which twenty children between the ages 2-9 learnt, sang and recorded original songs composed by Daphne in her home studio. During the course of two years, between 2010-2012, the Daphodil Music singers participated in workshops in which they not only recorded the songs, but also wrote the lyrics for several songs in the project, made up choreography and created drawings for each song. We ended up with 11 wonderful songs and lots of fond memories.

The Extinct Animal Songs were recorded, edited and orchestrated in collaboration with the wonderful musician Udi Glaser.

Listen to the full Extinct Animal Songs project, we hope you enjoy!

The Magical Creature Songs Project is Daphodil Music’s second singing and recording project (2013), featuring the lovely voices of children from around North London between the ages 6-11. We hope to begin posting the new songs very soon.
