I grew up listening to a lot of this stuff. If you take a listen to a lot of the Schoolhouse Rock stuff, you’ll see what I mean, “I Got Six” is one of my favorites, and they don’t make kid music like this anymore. Anyway, here’s the theme song to a fictional cop show. This was written during FAWM (14 songs in 28 days). I didn’t write 28 but I got a few I was happy with.

Hey FAWMsters! Here’s some more backing tracks for you to use. These were written by me at various times pre-FAWM. Some of them are several years old, and they’re already in the wild. However if you feel you can use them, here they are. You’re granted non-exclusive rights to modify and create derivative works as long as you attribute me as “David P. Hendricks”. You are not granted permission to license them as-is to performing rights groups, or other distribution methods in which you collect money from the un-altered audio.

BED1 Sort of mellow chorus-y arpeggiated verses with a heavier chorus

BED2 Heavy and driving, distorted guitars not too fast.

Hey FAWMsters! Here’s some backing music for you to use. If you contact me through the FAWM page I might be able to edit this for you, switch sections, add some extra sections, maybe even write a new bridge. I don’t have a lot of time but if it’s a simple section rearrangement I can probably do it. Keep in mind, not every song I do for FAWM will be available for you to use, just the ones on this page. Get some non-FAWM created backing tracks.

New song, sort of happy jazzy in a “mild” bebop style, probably more Oleo than Anthropology. It’s got your standard bebop rhythm section, bass, drums, but with electric piano, and vibes as the melody.

 

Here’s a song that was written for the end title of a still unproduced movie. This version wasn’t used, so I made a simple video to go with it. It’s got robots and lasers.

 

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.
