This is my AP Music song composition. It originally was supposed to be a Penguins theme song in E minor. However, I began to realize that it was sounding too dark for a theme song. It took another turn for the dark side when I found rifle shots on Garageband. As I tried to fulfill the last requirement of lyrics, I hit a wall until I heard the news of a 7 year old boy named Latarian Milton who stole his grandma's car and took it for a joy ride. Intrigued, I followed his story for the next week (he's a big hit on the web and youtube). A week later, he beat up his grandma inside a Wal Mart because he wanted chicken wings. Never feeling so inspired before, lyrics inundated my brain. LATARIAN.
