Randy Racooney Themesong

While searching my hard-drive in search of this Friday's tune, I came across this buried gem.

There's really not much to say about this except that originally this tune was intended as a themesong for "Chester, The Pink Inflatable Mylar Bunny" (and only one other person knows who that is) but Randy insisted on having a themesong before he'd consent to doing The World's First 'Plog, so the words were changed around and this is what we're left with. Enjoy.

(And yes, that is how he spells his name).

Bossa No. 6

Based on cryptic download stats, this song remains popular after it's conception in November, 2005, as a KVRAudio contest entry (the theme was "Easy and Cheesy in the Retro Lounge" and, against all odds, it won).

I originally intended this to be a parody of Mambo #5 (hence the title), but I found myself incapable of doing that. The phrase "Falling down a flight of stairs catches you unawares", however, was stuck in my mind at the time and I found myself more than capable of writing a song all about that.

Anyway, this song is dedicated to all of the Mrs. Fletchers out there who have fallen and can't get up.

The Apostles Creed

Another song for the Easter Season (I suppose). This is a Catechism Rock song. I really must do more of those.

Can't Nobody

Happy Easter! In honor of the day, here's some Synthpop/Gospel for everyone, straight from 2003.

A Robot Overcompensates

I think this track would fall into the realm of self-parody if I hadn't spent so much time on it. If this tune were on the WB it would get a TV-14 DSV rating, so protect your kids.

Anyway, I could go into all the production elements of this song (vocals written and sung while I had a sinus infection, which might explain a lot, everything thrown at this track, production-wise, including a Nintendo DS playing Electroplankton, though only for a brief vocal effect) but that might legitimize it too much.

Anyway, you were warned. If you happen to like this song, you can vote for it on the 2006 Pieces of Flair Robot Song Off (and what's wrong with you?).

Tuesday Morning at the Robotics Factory

Retro Robot Song Week (well, the first one of them, anyway) wraps up this week with "Tuesday Morning at the Robotics Factory", one of the first Dr. Apostrophe X songs from 2003. I kind of like it. Anyway, a brand new, really warped robot song will be posted here Monday, unless I think better of it, which I probably will, and you don't want to miss that.

NOTE: This song is now available on the new "Phreakbox v1.4: The Instrumentals" album, available for download from Amazon MP3,, and available soon from iTunes and Rhapsody and on Audio CD.

There's just one week left for me to complete my submission to the 2006 Pieces Of Flair Robot-Song-Off so while I work hard on that, I've declared this a "Retro Robot Song Week" (or something, use your own imagination to come up with a more clever title). Today's tune is off the Robot Love album. Buy your copy today from any number of fine CD and online music stores.
