“The Wake Up” Song

By , 23 August, 2009, No Comment

Sir Cokelogic is entering the FOX Aniboom Holiday Animation Contest and asked me to do a little music.  He provided the lyrics and the idea of the song setting out from the awfulness of an alarm clock’s  Beep!  Beep!  Beep!


No More Sleep
It’s 8:15
Get Out of Bed
Brush Your Teeth
Sparkling Clean
Some Coffee
Off To Work
It’s Time To Leave

“Daddle-dee” song

By , 5 August, 2009, 2 Comments

Not really a finished song, but something that I’ve been singing to myself the past couple weeks while out walking or daydreaming. I usually can’t convert daydream songs into real things – they just get lost in translation…But this one came out kind of close to what I was imagining.

I think I was inspired by my friend Adeem’s top-secret not yet dropped new album – he’s got a cool old-timey stomp and clap undercurrent in his new songs.

But still this is one of those songs that I have no idea what’s going on…just sand thru the fingers.

Daddle-dee, daddle-do
Sun go down
But where did it go?

By the sea
By the shore
Tide go out
But where did it roll?

Wind run past
To and fro
Out to sea
But where’d it blow?

Sun go down
Far below
Stars light up
And so it goes

It was the coldest night
It was the drearest night
It was the blackest night
Once more

“Ron Sleeves” Facebook Song

By , 3 August, 2009, 1 Comment

Ron did a great dirt-mouth whiskey-throated impersonation of Sherwin last Tuesday. I was hoping this could be a Twitter song, but it went long at 50 seconds – so maybe pretend there’s a bloated Facebook standard that’s being followed?

“The Little Man” Song

“The Little Man”

So let’s pray for the little man high on the mountain
We have these wishes, can’t find the fountain

Pray for the little man lost in the forest
He sings the verses, we sing the chorus

This is more of a song fragment, but I got close to finishing it so I thought I’d just put it out there. It also almost seems like a church song, maybe just cause of the invocation to “pray”…but I was really just trying to work on a piece to accompany a story I’m writing where Sherwin gets lost in the woods…it’s too reverent though…too churchy…

I have a lot of unfinished songs. It doesn’t usually bother me to just let them go incomplete. But every once in a while I wonder if I’m just giving up too early…maybe I’m just not hanging out with it long enough? Cause you do have to hang out with a song for a little while sometimes and explore. Try out different things. I guess there’s no answer to that. But the Little Man song is a typical fragment. One part with some flourishes, but no good second part.
