OMG mica, I can't stop playing this one! You and your girl, eh?
What a great collaboration.

(I'm actually working on my bills again and the last thing I was expecting was to have a huge smile.)

Thank you for posting this. You made my day.

Yeah! I'm really jammin' out to this one!

What is that "bukka bukka buk boom boom" thing going on? Is that your voice or what? I never know what you're making sounds with, but I always want one.

Oh cool. I'm glad you guys liked it. buriednexttoyou, unfortunately the "bukka bukka buk boom boom" is my girlfriend's voice, so you realize I can't lend her to you. On this song we used a melodica (which she played) a bass and an acoustic guitar (which I played) and we did all the rhythm with our voices.

We did a slightly different version, with another bass line and without the melodica, which you can download here.

Tell her that I will double whatever it is you're paying her!

(I assume that you are not paying her)

Dude, this kicks ass. Great material for a soundtrack. I wish I had a girlfriend who made "bukka bukka buk boom boom" sounds. Also, I wish I had a girlfriend. Um.

ANYWAY, lovely. Post more collaborations with this "my girl" you speak of!!!

Soundtracks? Hell yea. You are the next Ennio Morricone.

I second everything everyone has said.

And I want an extended version! This is too wonderful to end so soon.

Cool, mica! For whatever reason, I haven't been hanging around MeFiMu too much lately, so I'm a little late to your party here. A most agreeable little ditty you've posted!

Post more collaborations with this "my girl" you speak of!!!

Mica's got sunshine on a cloudy day
when it's cold outside he's got the month of may...

Flapjax! good to see you back. Yeah, I noticed you were on vacation from Metafilter Music, but your FPPs have been so good I didn't dare complain. Hopefully soon you'll be posting here again, yeah?

CitrusFreak12, and ORthey, thx for your kind words. I'll try to convince her of singing a bit more. She is reluctant to do it, but she is thrilled that her participation was so well received, so that could help. Thank you all for your comments.

Very catchy. Love the melodica.

This is just perfect, as is.

It is 1am and its been a fantastically long day, and here for a brief moment, listening intently in my headphones, I started to drift away and I was actually transported somewhere equatorial, there were 1940's DeSoto's on the streets, and I could smell cigars in the air.

In another instant, I was back, staring at my screen.

Just wonderful.
