Bride of the Creature From the Deep

Because I always liked when old songs had sequels.

Hastily done, inferior to the original in every way, but hey, what do the kids know? They'll buy it anyhow.

And no, it's not really scary, but it's related to last year's challenge, so I'm going to count it.

This is spot-on, as usual. Nice bop bop shoo wops.

Ha! I like the sound you got with this. Like it's been recorded in the room next door to where the band's playing. Kind of reminded me of the sort of "groovy baby" songs that you used to get in those cartoon shows like The Archies or Scooby Doo - you know, when they all suddenly turn into a polished little pop combo. Tres fab maaaaan

Thanks--that's exactly the sound I was going for. Last year's track had a noisy vinyl simulation running over it, which I didn't use this time. I just compressed the holy hell out of everything and generally grunged it up.

Plus, I got to use my amazingly-cheap Telecaster copy, which I'd almost forgotten about. Plays much better than a $120 guitar has any right to.

Latching onto MajorDundee's comment, the little organ instrumental in the end makes me think of that wonderful dancing that happened whenever there was a band playing in a cartoon. Really mechanical and choppy hip swaying and forearm swinging and smiling at each other. Not inferior to last years at all, although you should have pretended to have found this in a cereal box again.

I think you captured this whole idea perfectly on the first one, so you had a tough job to not jump the shark here. I think the awesome organ saved it.
That and your AMERICAN GUY vocals.
