Without My Pants On

October 20, 2011 10:24 PM

Submission for this month's "record a track before you put on your pants in the morning" challenge. I sat down in my underwear at 7:35am to put together a song about what might have happened if I had sat down without my underwear.

Recorded the uke scratch with "nah nah nah" vocals around 7:45am, laid down the rest of the tracks, took a shower (while writing/rehearsing the lyrics), recorded the vocal, hit "bounce to disk" around 9:35am, threw on clothes as fast as I could, and barely made my 10am meeting.

After the kids fell asleep tonight, I snipped off the ends in Audacity and shipped it directly to you, with love.

With love, and also with the word "scrotum." Consider yourself warned.

Ha! Actually a fantastic melody and chord structure. I may have to steal some of it.

It sounds like a "Celluloid Heros" outtake. Well done.

Seriously, the only thing that could improve this song is some falsetto vocalising right at the end.

...some falsetto vocalising right at the end.

Ah, dammit, you're so right about this. So right.

Not to be downhearted-- it's still a great song!

It's just that fixing it would make it not challenge-valid. So not downhearted, just facepalming.
