Fulfilled Song Requests Page 1

Teenage Prison
Krizette from the Philippines requested a acoustic/punk/classic rock song titled ‘Teenage Prison.’ She wrote, ‘Teenage prison is like home arrest. Grounded, can’t go to any parties, can’t go out with friends and have fun, always told/scolded to stay at home and never go out because of some mistake you committed the past few years of your high school life when you just want to live your life to the fullest.’

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.

Forget It
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.’

Mighty_Meh (aka xoes) from Rotterdam, the Netherlands said she “would like a bluesballad named What about the Daisies”. The New Old Men have provided such a blues ballad, even drifting it into frippertonics-y space at parts.

Craig Denniston from Omaha requested ‘Brrrrrrraaaaaaaains’, so we zombied it up for him.

Dragging My Rope Through the Cow Pasture
Steve Dobkins from Fort Worth, Texas requested a song to be titled I Drug My Rope Through the Cow Pasture and said ‘feel free to improvise’ for the genre. We couldn’t resist country-ing it up. Also, we changed the conjugation in the title to ‘Dragging My Rope Through the Cow Pasture’, but Steve has forgiven our goof!

Pete the Algae-Eating Aquarium Fish
Breanne Kato from California requested a reggae song about Pete, her ‘algae-eating aquarium fish’ who ‘couldn’t care less that Skeletor the goldfish [his previous aquarium roommate] is dead.’ Karl obliged:
