Book Challenge Thinger. Based on John Irving's "Until I Find You". [more inside]
Request: "I have long wished for a happy, loud, upbeat version of The Beatles 'Michelle.'" [more inside]
After flaking on too many challenges I was determined to get this one in under the wire, despite whatever life threw up in the meantime to distract me (quite a lot as it happens, but in a good way). [more inside]
The Song Request Raffle Challenge: "I have a very small friend named Evie. She is eight months old and would greatly appreciate a children's song with her name in it." YOUR REQUEST HAS BEEN GRANTED! [more inside]
For the request raffle, a cover of The Rolling Stones' Paint it Black in the surf rock guitar style of Dick Dale. [more inside]
Here’s my entry for the Great Request Raffle. The request I got was: “I have a number of songs about Friday, Saturday, and Monday. Even one song about Tuesday. I'm wondering if anyone has something to say about Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday.” [more inside]
Made in one night and it probably shows. I liked the tacky sound so I kept it.
For the MeFi Music Challenge: Here is a happy little song about insects for the education and edification of children. [more inside]
In 1987, I wrote this cornball song from the POV of a proud and friendly ant, but never recorded it until now. [more inside]
German children's tune. [more inside]
Fulfilling two of the Challenges for July: Wildcard (music you hate = techno) and Music (ripped off James Bond Theme riff). Also, going for the trifecta, it's a cappella (June's Style Challenge). And it's still July 31st in some parts of the world, so I think this should be allowed in the door.
My submission to the spy challenge. [more inside]
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]
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]
It may be hard to believe, but I didn't listen to the song while singing it. Dirty words in a short song.
For the spy challenge. [more inside]
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.
For this month's challenge, in the "Spy Music" category. [more inside]
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]
