“Song Of Twos” – Inspirations for our New Counting Song

JoshGuitar befunkyCounting in Pairs Song

Many of you might have¬†noticed our love for retro style music and animation by now ūüėÄ

We think that the warm, colourful and whimsical style¬†from the 60s and 70s are just perfect to create beautiful children’s songs and videos.

Especially for this song, which we wanted to be¬†very dreamy, we wrote¬†a simple melody to be produced with¬†soft vocals, acoustic guitars, flutes, and some¬†strings. We really like how the lyrics turned out. They are not just about counting by twos, but more about the number 2 representing the meaning of ‘togetherness’ and ‘pairs’.




Counting In Twos Lyrics

Song of Twos

(Verse 1)

With my two eyes I saw two birds
up in the sky so blue
up in the sky they flew
singing the song of twos

With my two feet I walk and walk
so I get close to you
so like the birds we too
can sing the song of twos


2, 4, 6, 8
10, 12, 14
16, 18, 20
Sing the song of twos
(repeat numbers)
That’s how you count by twos

(Verse 2)

With my two ears I love to hear
your voice when I feel blue
your voice so sweet and true
singing the song of twos

And even in the darkest nights
a melody comes through
a melody for two
I hear the song of twos


Learning How To Do Frame By Frame Animation

Just as we were brainstorming visual ideas and matching up our goals with reality (i.e. deadlines and limited animation skills), we saw an ad for an upgrade of our animation software from Anime Pro 10 to Anime Pro 11! One of the great features of Anime Pro 11 is the option of using frame by frame animation Рperfect for abstract animation full of transformations and movement. Should we get the upgrade and try it out? Of course we should!

After hours and hours of furious tutorial-watching and practice sessions, we managed to create a fun animation using this old (but for us brand new) technique. Here is an example of what we created with frame by frame animation:

Children, toddlers and preschoolers all love watching magical transformations as they truly enjoy everything that triggers their imagination. We hope that our music and videos will just do that: trigger their imagination and enrich their lives :)
