This was a really fun song to write and record. I honestly wasn’t sure Michael’s idea would work when he first suggested it to me, but then I’m game for just about anything, so thought “let’s try it and see what happens!” And Michael’s a great friend and writing partner (we write the Public Libraries Magazine column “Internet Spotlight” together), so if everything else went down the tubes, I knew we would at least have a fun time of it. But as we started writing the lyrics, rhythms and melody lines started bouncing around in my head… and I realized this would be easy to pull off.
- The music is a mix of GarageBand instruments, my own guitar playing, and three samples of theremins and other whistle-like sounds.
- And Michael Porter and I sang/rapped the thing
- recorded and mixed in Garageband, in my basement
