Purple Dinosaur

August 25, 2006 7:58 AM

Daniel LeClair, a friend of mine, told me how much he adored his 3-year-old kid. How he understood everything the boy spoke, mumbled, shouted or coughed. The only thing he never understood, was how the boy could be in love with that purple dinosaur. I thought there was a song in there. Recorded with another friend, Uili Damage, who did the production and sang in it. So, I wrote the song, but Uili made it sound as it does here.

I really like this, but my associate hates it passionately! Different strokes!

Well, 1 - 1. It's sure better than the two days it spent without comments. I'm glad you liked it, and thx for the comment. Tell the associate we meant no harm!

Wow, this one must have slipped by me. Just saw it on favorites. Awesome song! Right on! Have you ever heard the album "NO" by the They Might Be Giants guys? It sounds like you might like it.

Hey snsranch, It's good to read someone else liked it. It was the first song I posted in MetaFilter Music and I almost didn't post again after only one person left a comment.

I am particularly fond of this one, you know? particularly because it was written for my friend's kid, and recorded with another good friend. I haven't hear "NO" by TMBG, but I'll definitely check it out.

Thx for the kind words.

This is a disorienting mishmash of all sorts of interesting noises and bloops and blorps and lyrics I can't understand, and I love it.
