loud magic song

January 28, 2011 1:48 PM

My son, who is 3, was in a goofy mood and made up this song. I backed him up with sloppy disco punk led by a preschooler's elastic sense of time.

That is a really good melody... woah. His voice is great. I'll front the $5 when he starts recording on his own and wants to distance himself from his father's illustrious MuFi career and get his own profile ;)

That was pure joy in music form.
Just played it loud on the speakers in the living room and my wife is walking upstairs at this moment humming it and saying "that is an awesome song!"
Thanks umbú.

That was kind of neat. Your son will go far.

"Man, I knew of that guy when he was three!"

This song is a big hit with the 8 year old in my house. With me, too.

I see you got the spoon unstuck from his mouth, and this is what happens!

Also, seconding the Captain Beefheart comparison.

This really needs a "making of" video. Really excellent, thanks.

This song lives up to both of its descriptors.

This is probably one of the greatest things ever made.

Put it down on the floor and it will bounce!

I've been yell-whispering '"MAGIC MAGIC MAGIC! MATCH!" to myself all day. In case you can't guess, that has VASTLY improved my day in every way, so thank you!

A few people asked me to post the soloed out vocals, so I've uploaded them here.

Goddamn, this is spectacular. I'm sorry I took so long to finally listen to it. The spirits of Henry Cow and Captain Beefheart are clearly flowing strongly through his veins.

This is definitely going to be my new ringtone, as soon as I can figure out which 18 seconds are the most awesome.

Ha! Oh, man. I love this to death, umbú.
