Songland – Series One, Episode Two
Ok. Now I get it. All it took was watching will.i.am perform his magic to show me how brilliant he is, and how phenomenal this program could become.
There were four songs to choose from, this week: “Boxes,” “Invincible,” “Be Nice” and “Oh Lord”. The one will.i.am rejected as a Black Eyed Peas song was “Oh Lord”. But the songwriter didn’t go home empty-handed: he got an offer from will.i.am to collaborate on a recording of his own song, instead.
Then, will.i.am got down to work on making each of the other songs into Black Eyed Peas hits. Let’s face it, the man’s a genius. But I would never have realized how much if it wern’t for this show.
In the end, he chose “Be Nice” as a single for the Black Eyed Peas.
But, there were no losers on the night: will.i.am decided to put all three songs on his next Black Eyed Peas album! Now that’s positive thinking.
