B'doo Deh Du

February 7, 2015 11:46 PM

Dance-Rock Late-70's-type Instrumental. Maybe if Thin Lizzy and the Talking Heads were commissioned to write the theme song to CHiPs? The only lyrics are "B'doo deh du" and "Bah-Bah-Bah-Bomp!"

This has been knocking around my head for years, but I never got around to trying to record it until now, since I am getting better at using Garageband. It came out different than what it had sounded like in my head all these years, but I like it better, and I really like hearing it OUTSIDE of my head, if that makes sense. Also a good chance to practice accordion.

Heh, at first I thought the accordion was guitar stings with no attack. I wonder if it could be used under the verse in full-draw mode, sort of echoing the synth in the chorus. Nice little earworm you made.

I thought the same thing as Johnny! I'd love to hear the accordion a bit further forward, so I could make it out more clearly. And bringing it in with the synth, perhaps just the second time, or as a pedal underneath it? Great idea.

So cool though, this needs to be the theme tune to a cool french animated film.

I was walking around today and humming and thinking, what's that song? hm-hmm hmm hmm... hm-hmm hmm hmm... B'doo Deh Du! I feel like this is from the awesome side project of Animal from the muppets.

A new classic which takes its rightful place along side of Mah Nà Mah Nà.

Oh, this is so good. Definitely CHiPs. Awesome, keep up the good work.

Ba dum dum dum, Ba dum dum dum...

This song is great and I want to go to this alternate reality more than anything.

Thanks, everyone! I think this was one of my favorite things to record in the past couple of years – it definitely marked a turning point for me, both in catalyzing a period of increased musical activity, and in terms of being able to realize on record what floats around in my head.
