Here’s a new video, “Everything Tastes Like Chicken”  This was written for 50/90 in 2014.  It was written pretty quickly, it may have been a song skirmish, I don’t remember.  Song Skirmishes are when you are given a title, then have 1 hour to write and record your song, then upload it by the end of the hour.  Anyway, the animation was done in Anime Studio.

Decaffeinated coffee? What’s the point?  None, that’s what.  Here’s a song about coffee and how you can’t face your mornings without it.  Coffee, it’s your best friend.

Wake up in the morning, and you’ve had an awful night,

the day would be much easier if it weren’t for the light.

So you head to the kitchen for something to wake you up,

nothing else will do but some java in your cup.

Chorus

Coffee, coffee that dark brown brew,

coffee coffee, can’t start the day without you

coffe, coffee, my favorite blend

coffee, coffee, you’re my best friend.

 

I guess you know, I’ve become your slave,

you’ve got that magic my body seems to crave.

If I miss you in the morning I lose control,

if I don’t get some coffee soon, some heads are going to roll.

Chorus:

 

So NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto the ex-planet today, and took some pictures.  I wrote a FAWM song years ago when it was de-planeted.  I made a little movie to celebrate the flyby.

Hello Little Pluto

Hello little Pluto, don’t you know that we still love you,

you’re not quite important as you once used to be

you were part of the club, but now you’ve been disbarred,

still you keep thinking of your time in the sun

Chorus:

We all need a place where the sun shines on your face

Holds us safe within its arms, pulls us close and keeps us warm.

protects us from all harm, holds us close and keeps us warm

Well, the old man they call Charon is still your faithful friend,

and Venetia doesn’t say much, but she knows they’ve done you wrong.

I know you feel the same doing what you’ve always done,

After all, it’s just words and they’ve been wrong before.

Chorus:

We all want a circle we can count on,

keeps us safe within it’s orbit,

and it always pulls us home,

we’re a million miles away, but we’ll never be alone.

Chorus:

Laid back, yet cheerful easy rock piece, guitars, bass, drums, and a little electric piano.  Like you were driving Route 66 with the wind in your hair.  Or the air conditioning, whatever.  You can download the song on the free music page.

Of all the songs about awesome people, this song has been streamed the most.  Not downloaded at all, but streamed.  So that tells us two things about Olivia(s).  She’s got a high opinion of herself, and she’s cheap.  Still, I think you Olivia for the $1.64.
