As i’ve said before, It was amazing to get to write a song for Al Yankovic.  I even got to go in and help direct Al while he sung!   Not that there was much to direct, Al was so professional He came in with pre-made sheet music of the song (which he gave to me after the record).

Originally I wanted it to be sort of like an early beach boys song, but i ended up just using something pretty catchy that i plunked out on the guitar that I was immediately able to conjure up lyrics to.  I ran the lyrics and song by Cole the next day, and he helped me rewrite them to be much funnier and fit more in line with the Banana Man’s character.

Here’s my demo version.  Please forgive my singing.

the lyrics go:

  • Fixing a truck with the neighbors,
  • not a better way to spend some time.
  • Hoping to see if they like me,
  • using automotive savvy.
  • Do a good job they’ll give me props,
  • BAM, I’m asked to come back tomorrow.
  • A future I see with them and me,
  • best buds, hanging out forever.
  • Board game Friday nights.
  • Best friend pillow fights.

p.s.  Al Yankovic is a super nice guy.

WE FIXED A TRUCK  is the second episode I storyboarded for Adventure Time with Cole Sanchez.  It features the return of Banana Man and with him the return of the voice talents of Al Yankovic.  Boarding this episode was pretty surreal for me because it gave me the opportunity to do something that I never considered could happen, write a song for childhood hero, Weird Al!!!

anyway tune in on monday at 7/6c on cartoon network!  I hope you dig it.

Hey folks,  

I was lucky enough to write the song “Get Over You” for the episode Love Games.  Which I must say, not having written many songs, was one of the most stressful things i’ve ever had to do.  It was based off a riff Cole played on a guitar which i extrapolated on.  I wish i could tell you what i am playing but my knowledge of chords and keys are not what they should be.    (EDIT:  added chords in.)

The Lyrics go something like this: 

(D) When I’m heatin up my lunch / (Fmaj7) Or delivering a dungeon punch / (G) I can’t, get over you (D).

(D) Your kiss is burned into my brain / (Fmaj7) Simon’s hair is cloggin’ up my drain / (G) I just can’t, get over you (D).

(D) I see your face all over OOO / (Fmaj7) Sticks to me like a coat of glue / (G) I can’t, get over you (D). 

anyway here’s the demo i made with me playing guitar and singing quite froggily.   hope you dig it.
