Dr. L'Amour

A friend of mine had a terrible crush on her podiatrist, so I wrote a song about it.

It's a lo-fi-ish ditty that includes accordion, glochenspiel and my dad on tuba.

Tuba can make any song better! Excellent stuff.

Honestly, the tuba makes me giggle. More songs should have tubas.

Fantastic. My favourite parts are the two little instrumental bits, one at the beginning and one at the end, that are absolutely inspired.

Great Big Fun! Tuba = great, but everything else kicks ass too.

Tuba + glockenspiel in Lo-Fi. How could it be better?

Three cheers for Dads.
Four if they play tuba.

Thanks, everyone. I know the tune's scruffy (and scruffily recorded) but I was proud of my dad's playing, and the experiment with falsetto who-style backing vocals at the end.

I just forwarded this link to him, and it totally made his day.
