Go Gadget, Go!

A jazzy version of the Inspector Gadget theme song. Apologies in advance if it gets stuck in your head.

My entry for this month's 'theme song' music challenge started out as a generic pop tune about two best friends, worked it's way into a rap about Alf and when all was said and done wound up not being an eligible entry at all with this... a jazzy remake of the Inspector Gadget theme song. I'm still not sure how that happened, but I'm glad it did.

Actually, one of my old bands used to play something similar to this, so it's nice to finally have put together a recording of it.

Hope you enjoy it.

I guess I should note - some liberties were definitely taken in the arrangement. You know, if that wasn't obvious enough.

Where's the doot-doo?!? No matter, it's still a sweet rendition. The keys are particularly suave. Great work!

This is funny b/c me and my friends have been watching this video recently b/c the guy looks exactly like a buddy of ours. Anyway this is some good shit, those keys are funky. Are those real drums or programmed?

Programmed drums. But probably the most passable drum track I've ever been able to sequence.

Hah, nice work on the keys, and yeah, the drums sound good. I love this theme song.

That's really cool. I dig the lead e-piano a lot.

I got an itch that usually can only be scratched by a mechanical 3rd hand coming out of my hat.
But this is also perfect for scratching that itch.
Good work.
