Biography

Fans of the 80s film "Teen Witch" are finally realizing their dreams with the release of the "Teen Witch - The Musical" soundtrack. the original producers of the music for the film, Larry Weir and Tom Weir, have released the album on their newly formed Caption Records label. "We've been asked about an official release of the songs ever since the film came out, but the original masters weren't available," commented Grammy winning producer/engineer Tom Weir, who owns Studio City Sound, where the album was recorded.

Determined to give the fans what they wanted, Larry and Tom decided to re-create the magic and re-record the original songs. The first single, "Finest Hour," features recording artists Sara Niemietz ("Akeelah and the Bee", "13 the Musical") and Blake Ewing ("Little Rascals", "Ragtime") is already showing strong on radio airplay charts all over.

"Teen Witch" (the movie) has had ongoing airings on the Disney Channel, HBO, Showtime and ABC Family Channel, and has been packing midnight showings from New York to Seattle. Clips featuring songs from the film have been viewed over one million times on YouTube alone. The enduring popularity of the music prompted the film's writer/producer Alana Lambros to get together with the Weir Brothers and develop a full scale (Broadway bound) musical as a vehicle for the songs and the story's timeless message. "We kept attending these sold out screenings all over the country, and Alana turned to me and said 'we have to take this to Broadway'," explained songwriter/producer Larry Weir.

The team held auditions for over a month and eventually found the perfect blend of talent for the project. In addition to Sara Niemietz and Blake Ewing, other featured artists include Monet Lerner ("The Suite Life with Zack and Cody"), Tessa Ludwick ("Disney Movie Surfers"), Lauren Patten ("The Diary of Anne Frank"), V-Style (Terminator 3), Heather Youmans, Ashley Crowe, Bryce Blue and Alycia Adler. Some of the musicians include: guitarist Tim Pierce (Avril Lavigne, Phil Collins), drummers Josh Freese (Sting, Nine Inch Nails) and Matt Laug (Christina Aguilera, Alanis Morissette), percussionist Luis Conte (Madonna, Shakira), bassists Lance Morrison (Rod Stewart, Don Henley) and Paul Bushnell (Kelly Clarkson, Faith Hill), and brass by Nick Lane (Josh Groban, Fall Out Boy).

A concert version of "Teen Witch The Musical" is also appearing in various venues around the country, bringing those irresistible pop sounds to radio station events, theme parks and county fairs.

The full length CD album is available at Amazon.com and iTunes worldwide. Distribution of Caption Records and "Teen Witch The Musical" is by Burnside Distribution Corporation, and digitally by INgrooves.

Lyrics

Finest Hour

Written By: Larry Weir & Cindy Valentine

Finest Hour

Words & Music by Larry Weir & Cindy Valentine
Publisher: St Cecilia Music / Another Level Music / World Academy Film Productions / BMI

I’m not afraid to show you how I feel
I’m not afraid to say I’ve changed
So many things have happened, too many times
I can’t help but feeling alive

CHORUS:
It’s gonna be my finest hour
I’m gonna take that chance tonight
Don’t stop me now ‘cause I’ve got the power
Just be with me in my finest hour tonight

I’m not afraid to take a chance anymore
Don’t need to hold back what I have and once more
We hold on to our dreams, our magic is love
I’ve gone through two extremes to know what’s enough

(Repeat Chorus)

There’ll be candlelight
And the music plays as we sip champagne through the night
Then you take my hand and we start to dance
If we share a kiss, it’ll be alright

(Repeat Chorus)

(There’ll be candlelight) it’s gonna be my finest hour
I’m gonna take that chance tonight (as the music plays)
Don’t stop me now ‘cause I’ve got the power
Just be with me in my finest hour tonight

(Then you take my hand) It’s gonna be my finest hour
I’m gonna take that chance tonight (and we start to dance)
Don’t stop me now ‘cause I’ve got the power
Just be with me in my finest hour tonight

Gonna be some major changes comin’ over me
Gonna take a dream into a real fantasy

Gonna be so different that you won’t recognize me

Popular girl, my new life has begun, so come into the world of a popular girl

RAP:
Hey there sugar won’t you ride with us, come on pretty baby don’t you put up a fuss
Looks like you really caught my eye jump in the car so we can all fly
Be cool baby don’t put up a fight, whether it’s Wednesday or Saturday night
We’d like you to come into our world, ‘cause every cool guy needs a popular girl.

Gonna be all draped in diamonds, how they’re gonna shine
All the press and the attention, I will never mind

(Repeat Chorus)

Popular girl, my new life has begun, so come into the world of a popular girl
Welcome into the world (Rap repeats) popular girl
Some come into the world, popular girl

I Like Boys

Words & Music by: Larry Weir, Tom Weir, Estelle Weir, Maria Weir & Theresa Weir
Publisher: St Cecilia Music / World Academy Films / BMI

I like boys
I’m throwin’ out my doll house and giving up my toys
I realized this morning that I like boys

CHORUS:
I like boys
I like boys
I like boys
I like boys

I’m giving up my hopscotch to get a little poise
I’m throwing on some lipstick to attract some boys

(Repeat Chorus)

I’m making no more mud pies and stayin’ out of the dirt
I’m gonna buy some nylons and a leather mini skirt

(Repeat Chorus)

We’re gonna let the world know, by making lots of noise
There is no turning back now, ‘cause we like boys

(Repeat Chorus)
