We fulfilled Kyle Braden‘s request to make a song titled “Dance Like There is no Tomorrow”. He said, “Kinda like the songs playing on the pop radio stations. If possible, with no words just a single karaoke song.” We may have made this a little more 80s/pop-rocky than current pop, but that’s just the way it evolved – continue dancing!

Melanie Kofod asked us to make a blues song called “Bailey, You’re Twelve Today!” saying, “Bailey is the best cat in the entire world! He is a total mama’s boy, but he’s also kind of an asshole at times too. He loves to cuddle and make happy feet and he brings me gifts of headless birds, fully alive birds, dead mice, almost dead mice and sometimes just feathers. His favorite food it cheez-its and he hates living with Abby (the dog).”

Iain from New Zealand asked us to come up with a song called Murscuddy Delight, saying “It’s a dessert I just made up. Sing its praises!” and asking it to combine the genres of New Wave and Prog.

Panchitah from LA, California requested Forget It – ‘a fun song to make me smile while I’m all borked and stuff. You know, “Dont worry be happy” style. Also, about how forgetful I am’. Karl says: ‘I may have missed the mark a little bit as far as the actual request goes, but I think I achieved a sort of Bobby-McFerrin-sings-Tom-Cruise’s-opinions-on-the-pharmaceutical-industry vibe, and hope this helps the requester feel less borked in general.’
