Rick Springfield and Vance DeGeneres’s “Ultimate Mini-Series: The 60-Second Guide to Songwriting with a Partner,” started off as a way for the two friends to have some fun online while home-sheltering during the current Covid-19 pandemic. But what began as a way to share a few laughs with their online communities grew into a popular multi-episode series and produced a rousing, uplifting universal anthem of hope and love.
The series featured a very smart and witty back and forth between the two, veering from showcasing musical ideas, suggestions from some famous friends and hilarious revisionist music history lessons showcasing Rick’s impressive collection of Beatles memorabilia.
“When Vance and I decided to try a parody of two musicians trying to write a song from our homes while in isolation we were just looking for some laughs and a diversion from the stay-at-home rules here in California,” says Rick. “The next thing we know we’re getting thousands of views and amazing comments from my fans loving the episodes and saying they wanted more and more.”
“We just kept bouncing ideas with each other online and after about ten episodes realized we had a damn good song!” adds Vance.
