Just when I think I couldn’t possibly get any sillier… I record the whole song, take my zoom recorder and drive to an empty parking lot so I can record 15 tracks of shouty vocals at like 1am, finish the song then stay up until 6am editing the video and painstakingly animating fonts. This song brought to you by Duolingo.

Some songs just (ahem) move you to do a duet. @imsadalex rocks. You should check out her music.

John Mayer made a TikTok of a short song called “Ravioli Shoes” and I liked it so much that I wrote a verse and added bass, drums, and a harmony.
Lost my job
Haven’t eaten in 3 days
But then I found a buck
So I go to the store
To see what I can afford
And find that I’m in luck
A can of ravioli makes my heart go crazy
Like a lover’s embrace
Though I know that it’s wrong
I’ve got an urge so strong
I just can’t stuff it in my face
Sometimes you gotta do what you can
To walk off those blues
Even if that means
Spending all your beans on

Sure most people are probably asleep at 6:40am. Some are even getting up or already up. Me, I’m laying in bed trying to sleep but instead getting an idea for a very silly song about having a crush on the Prop/Costume Diva for #MST3K and singing it into a voice memo in bits and pieces so I’ll remember it the next day. Quite probably the most niche song I’ve ever written. And that’s saying something.
I also decided to record a full studio version and video for that version in all it’s power pop glory!
Once upon a time, way back in the day
I used to watch a lot of MST3K
I never saw a lot of the earlier shows
So I decided to go back and give ’em a go
I was watching some videos, “Behind The Scenes”
And was reminded of a queen upon my screen
A feeling so familiar despite the years
That I wrote it in a song for the world to hear
I’ve still got a crush on Beez McKeever
The magical prop and costume diva
And if I ever met her then I’d never wanna leave her
‘Cause I’ve still got a crush on Beez McKeever
I hope this was amusing
And I swear I’m not a creeper
