Zanny crazy songs
@tuneslayer2018 1 week
My life is zany crazy songs. When I was little -- like, before I was in kindergarten -- we had two stacks of 45 RPM records ( had access to. (Remember those?) One was straight-up popular music of the day. The other consisted of things like Homer and Jethro's "How Much Is That Houn' Dawg in th' Winder" and Spike Jones' "I Used To Work In Chicago." Guess which set made more of an impression.
And that's before I discovered that there were more Allan Sherman records in the library than just the one with "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah" on it, or before our 10th grade English teacher introduced us to Tom Lehrer, or before I discovered the Doctor Demento show.
Not everything I write is off the deep end or even funny. But the influence is there.

@defaultdave -- You can thank @stevenwesleyguiles for the #donkeypants Song Challenge - "Write your best song about Donkey Pants" and, so, that's what I managed to come up with.
Clearly, everyone else is working on their own very fine treatise on Gaberdine Donkey Pants, or Flannel Donkey Pants or Searsucker Donkey Pants. Me? I just sorta... well... well, you heard it... 😁
The genesis of it is in this thread:

Well I had a bit of a bizarre song construction idea, and @pinky took me up on it!
I made a simple choir backing track in C Major at 120bpm, we both received that track and recorded our own vocals to it. The idea was that we might make music that would be compatible, mixable, but with no idea what the other person might do.
Once I received Pinky's files I chopped his and my vocal tracks up, threw away the backing track, and made it into some strange vocal collage. lol

I honestly think all of my songs are a little crazy... But after listening to the first post's song, I'll try to work on something even more manic.

What a great day for this post to show up. I had one fall out of the sky this afternoon.
