Tasty Treats

It's kinda unfair because I work nights and have a headstart on most of you on these challenges. Not the most polished song (most of my stuff isn't) but I thought it was kinda fun.

Secret Asian Man

Pretty cheesy cover of a super cool song, this is a little more rockin

Heist Scene

An old favorite genre of film, and part of every good spy flick, is the Heist, the soundtrack to which always goes like this. This scene from our "movie for the ears" music challenge is described inside. [more inside]

Spies! Again!

For the Spy Music Challenge, an almost-straight rip from what everyone hears in their heads when they stand in front of a mirror in a tuxedo. A little repetitive, but I was going for production values, so imagine this as a background piece to intro credits. [more inside]

I kill you. You die.

It may be hard to believe, but I didn't listen to the song while singing it. Dirty words in a short song.

Say U.N.C.L.E.

It's a cover, but not exactly. I was too lazy to figure out the whole song, so I just took the basic hook and had some fun with it. First time working in Reason.

Lazy Mary

The strangest thing happened to me the other day. I was flipping through the radio dial, and every station was playing a cover of Lou Monte's version of Lazy Mary in a style that I despise. It sounded something like this. [more inside]

Falling In Love With A Woman Reading Numbers

This is my entry for the spy music Mefi Monthly Music Challenge. The track is about an isolated Chinese secret agent in Canberra, falling in love with the disembodied voice that reads out numbers to him from China. I'm not that happy with the title. [more inside]

I Burned This Song

For this month's LYRIC Challenge. It has a very simple backing track, consisting of three elements: a drone (from my trusty Juno 60 analog synth), little wooden bells (from the 100 yen shop!), and my daughter's plastic ukulele, which has a picture of Maisy Mouse on it.

Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future (is a Cover))

I know this song has been uploaded right at the very end (if not shortly beyond) of the MeFi Music Challenge, but I went through a number of songs in the long debate to find a MeFite's song to cover, eventually landing on the one that most frequently gets stuck in my head. That song is Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future) by chiefbluefeather. [more inside]

Blue Train (the slow one)

I loved baby_balrog and his band's rollicking original of this tune. For this cover, I figured I'd take the train down another track: slowed way down (down on the ground), stripped way down (just vocal and strumstick), and with a little different shade of blue for the engineer's hat.

The Worst Decision

Laid-back, blues-inspired pop song for the June '08 lyric challenge. The phrase "life is all about conflicting desires" did not sink in initially. But on further reflection, I understood how this is true. Such conflict can lead to inertia or abdication of choice, resulting in disappointment. I did all the parts on this track: vox, keyboard, drum programming, and electric bass. I'm happy with the music, but the mix needs work. Dedicated to Jessamyn, of course (for what became the bridge). Lyrics inside. [more inside]

'Till We're Dead

If a MeFite sticks earworm on me I am gonna put it on here for what of prying it out of my head. Seriously though, awesome song.

The Book of Love

For this month's MeFi Music Challenge, just to make things confusing, I'm offering a cover of a cover. Specifically, it's a cover of Sleepy Pete and Melissa May's The Book of Love (which, of course, is also a cover--not to mention a hard act to follow). [more inside]

Body Music 1

For this month's WILDCARD Challenge, all sounds made using only my body: cheek tapping, belly slapping, finger snapping and vocal utterances. Clocks in at a crisp 1:29, and takes its inspiration in roughly equal parts from eefing and katajjaq.

Shoulda Been About Cupcakes

And it woulda been, if I coulda thought of any decent lyrics on that sugar-laden theme. As it is I'll backdoor this MeFi Music Challenge entry with a reference in the title. (Though I think I get the "brisk" tag legitimately.)

Cupcake, When You Have a Chance

This month's themes (cupcake, brisk, interstitials) didn't exactly turn the inspiration amplifier up to 11, but, goddammit, I ain't one to run away from a challenge, no sirree. I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. So this one goes out to you, my little cupcake. You know who you are. [more inside]

Man of Very Few Words

Well, it's a few days late for the November '07 MeFi Music Challenge, but my on-the-fritz computer spent most of the month in the repair shop, plus the dog ate my homework, but better late than never, I reckon. So this one's going under the veryfewwords tag, as if the song title didn't give that away. [more inside]
