At this point I just need to acknowledge that childish major-key jams with samba feet are my home genre.

I have resorted yet again to my home-multisampled drum kit, augmented with some electronic kit or other from Ableton. This one's entirely Ableton: softsynths and samples. The vocals were obviously the most fun, followed by the samba whistles, followed by what's one of the best drum fills I've ever programmed, followed by everything else. But most of all: I'm sorry.

It does kind of want to be extended, doesn't it.

That was fun and charming, very nice, but not hearing any samba in there. Much more of a Caribbean vibe, somewhere between calypso and soukous. Cute pun for the title, though. And yes, could use some fleshing out, time-wise, I reckon. Go for it!

"most of all: I'm sorry" = priceless.

alls i know is that's what my old drum teacher called the "chik boom-boom" ostinato with the hihat and bass, particularly when it had a cascara thing going on with the ride
