I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental. [more inside]
Ever hear a sound that falls and rises at the same time? This is NOT a song that captures the feel of No Shave November. [more inside]
A happy sounding video gamey song with a nifty beat. [more inside]
So I was reviewing my song posting history and realized most of my stuff is kind grim. Thought it would be fun to try something a little happier. [more inside]

An upbeat demo about plastic surgery from my next album. [more inside]
Happy 41th Birthday, Jessamyn! Congratulations -- you have found your Audio Birthday Card which we all recorded in secrecy. Enjoy! [more inside]
I decided to create a new birthday song for people who don't feel like breaking the copyright laws or don't have $10,000 to spare. It belongs to the internet now!
Pretty entrancing, happy song written after seeing the Mountain Goats with my girlfriend. It's all electronic, so don't expect anything similar to The Mountain Goats. It's just happy, is all. [more inside]
I have a problem: I can't stop writing songs for my beloved puggle. Turbo Nugget is what we call it when he can't take the excitement and sprints a few dozen laps around the house, followed by a nap. I felt this was best expressed in chiptune form. [more inside]
A happy-sounding very sad song. [more inside]
A happy, melodic love song. I don't do these very often! Wrote it a year ago for a girl. [more inside]
A little dance remix of a Kate Bush tune sampled off my turntable... just wanted to try making something super happy and dancey out of a very beautifully written song.

Im like a kid in a candy store for christmas and everything christmas So I cant wait anymore I must transform into SomethingjoeChristmas Early... [more inside]
Title inspired by a friend's idea for a new comic book. An ultra-happy electro love-fest with all the fixings... handclaps, warm synth pads, uplifting key changes, sparkly arps. Enjoy!
This was a happiely done shes gone song. When I first wrote it I thought to myself " If she hears this then shell know and we will be ok again" Needless to say she is still gone and all I got was this dam T-shirt. This was my first and only studio demo session in where I did my first three recorded songs. Sorry for the song restart at the end just me being lazy on a edit. Listen Ps: as the story goes she has heard this one I know for sure
enjoy! [more inside]
More 4-track clearance. This time, it's a happy, bouncy ditty from 1993: two guitars, some whistling and happily mumbled lyrics. Recorded probably with Fleetwood Mac's Tusk on the brain, with all knobs turned up to eleven. [more inside]
One of the better songs I have lined up for my first album (which is still in its early stages). Heavy drums, synth, happiness. Also, this is my first post to MeFi Music.
A happy song about new love and late summer nights. I'm not sure that the arrangement for this is done, really, but I've been leaving it alone for a while now. Features keyboards, bass, drums, slide guitar and vocals.
Grab your surfboards, your transistor radios and your beach blankets: it's time for a happy 1950s-style Beach Party!
My little brother turned 23 this year, and I'm a cheapskate. Solution: record a song! Can be used for people named "Alice" and also in a pinch "Alan".
A light-hearted vocal tune/experiment - all sounds are from my own voice, including the potentially craptacular quasi-beatboxing in the middle. Enjoy!
Casiotronic feel-good in a can.
