Over this weekend Zoë and I decided to work on a song together. I had her write down five topics and we picked “Chocolate Chip Dip” as the subject. She wrote the words pretty quickly and we put it together. Then we decided what the heck, let’s shoot a video too.
Sometimes, in an attempt to get the kids interested in music, I sing about them while they’re in the room, or coax them into recording some vocals. It’s pretty easy to take samples of them and build a song around it. That’s basically what you have here.
A mash-up of the theme songs from Season 2 of Unpacking Coffee. Twenty songs in 5 minutes.
A much calmer take on the vocals, without the autotune effect and stereo double-tracking. I kept this one around because I liked the lighter feel of it. The guitar part is different as well, I felt like even though I was playing the right part, it kind of sounded wrong, which is why I went with the other version.
Meant to mellow things out at the end. I think this was meant to have lyrics to tie it all up in a bow.
Absurd, was meant for an interlude or a video piece in the show we were putting together.
Just pure silliness. I’m not sure if The Frogs or Ween are more to blame for inspiring this.
The idea for this sprang right out of the rhythm. Fit like a glove.
I think I had been listening to The Frogs. That’s probably my best defense.
Just a dramatic break. Maybe you would run to the bathroom or something.
