The theme song to a sitcom you may have seen a time or two.

Ha ha ha! This is awesome.

I like that in under a minute you still get a couple of unexpected chords in there.

Now do the theme song for the spinoff that the wacky neighbors get!

That Isaac Hayes/Shaft guitar in the second verse was a great touch. Did you have to do many adjustments so that it would fit the less-than-one-minute mark, or did it just naturally came out like that?

Thanks, guys. The wah guitar was a last-minute addition that I thought really brought the whole thing together. Before I added it, the second verse had drumming in straight eights; with the guitar, I tried going to sixteens, and really liked the effect.

It just sort of happened to slot in at under a minute. I actually recorded the scratch tracks 5-10bpm faster than this, but even with the added length, it still ended up well under a minute. Just one of those things that came to me almost fully-formed in the shower and I had to get down quickly.

Man, this challenge is yielding some amazing results. It sounds like you were channeling the "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air" guy. And that keyboard patch. It's so cheesy, and so perfect.

Yea, so you have a double header. This is funny as hell and I agree with micayetoca, that wah is a GREAT touch...nice little cherry on top.

Man, you sound almost *exactly* like Weird Al. I did an aural double-take. Excellent work.
