Make them up. Adults and kids.
Serious about comedy? Come and take part
in this Goody Tunes workshop. Talk about them, sing them and express
your inner idiot. Satire not required, but preferred! Adults can editorialize,
and kids can just get goofy and tuneful for life. Danger, danger! Habit-forming.
Laughter also makes you fat. Monster
tunes a specialty--I wrote 3 dozen of them so far, will show them to
you if you want.
MY PHILOSOPHY: Comedy tunes should be amusing at first
hearing, stuffed with gags that hit you later, and be melodic and richly
musical enough to bear repeated listenings on a recorded medium.
STREET CRED: Doug Jones, performer, soundtrack composer,
singer, guitarist, keyboardist, effects makeup man and computer animation
his Monster Musical performed with cast of 40 in Loa Angeles. Full tilt,
makeup, backgrounds projected imagery, props, the works. But they only
used 8 songs out of the 36 intended as a triple album for world's most
famous Horror-host, John Zacherle. Still, who else can say they had a
musical performed in Hollywood? Rand as a special event, all day then
as intended, closed forever! Get it while you can...
