Jar Full Of People

My entry for the November Challenge. It is not new, but it has been waiting for this challenge to finally have an appropriate home.


You can find everyone
in a jar on the hill
if you look for the jar
full of people

Brilliant. Should be appropriated as the theme to the TV Series "JAR HILL" which I just envisioned (as animated by Gary Larson). I'm sure you could commission They Might Be Giants to perform it, but why bother; this is perfect. Short and sweet, silly and surreal. Thanks for making this.

I love this so much, it needs a nutso video to go with it and then to go viral.

Happy major key and then, pow...the visual. This manages to be charming and eerie at the same time. I especially like how well the backing vocal fits in.

I am looping this and just sort of cackling and struggling to breath in my chair right now. I sort of want to make a 12 second music video for it but I don't even know where to start.

It's like a musical version of a Perry Bible Fellowship cartoon.

Is this not the new theme to the TV shoe "Under the Dome"?

How did I not know about this jar.

This is the most Napalm Death thing I have heard in a long time. I heard it on the MeFiMusic podcast where greenish characterised it as "not quite the full minute" and literally laughed out loud with glee when I realised the silence at the end wasn't a dramatic break, but the end of the song.

Great stuff! Going back to listen to it again now.

Random, remarkable and repurposed as my new ringtone!

The warmth and the brevity both make it
