Long Story Short, Short Story Shorter

I was really hoping to get this posted in time for the November Challenge, but technical difficulties and the sudden realization that oh I really need a glockenspiel combined to -- wait, it's still November in Hawaii? I CLAIM FLAWLESS VICTORY [more inside]

Leave Her, Johnny

Here is an entry for the January Challenge! It is by me and rangefinder 1.4. It is a cover of "Leave Her, Johnny," a traditional sea shanty that was sung by sailors at the end of a voyage, as they were preparing to leave their ship ("her" in the song). [more inside]

Girlfriend Song

It's okay to submit a MetaFilter Music Challenge song at the last minute (Pacific Standard Time) if the song itself is less than a minute long! You can't get blood from a stone, but you can get feedback from an autoharp. Here's a tender punk rock love song for you. [more inside]

Henry Pants

This is a song that I sing to my cat. Because he has a lot on his plate and a short attention span besides, this song is less than a minute long. It features autoharp, glockenspiel, and the "Min-O-Matic" rhythm box. [more inside]

The Girl at the End of the Road

I guess this might be interpreted as a stream-of-consciousness horror story. There's maybe three or four different autoharp tracks here, including a distorted autoharp that I really dig. And a backwards autoharp! These autoharps say "Happy Halloween!" [more inside]
