I've always loved the novelty songs of the swing era, and decided I wanted to write a song that had a good dose of silliness in it. A dance tune seemed a good vehicle, so I went for a beat that made me bop around in my computer chair. I wrote some lyrics, found my silly hook, and just started singing.

If you have kids, play this one for them. Kids tend to really respond to it.

This is a really fun song. I can see Carmen Miranda doing this!!!! smiley Great delivery. You have the perfect voice for this. Little production glitched-- I think the percussion loop youhave near the end is overpowering the rest of the beat. But, nonetheless a fun little ditty...

Thank you so much for all of the kind comments! This was one of the first songs I ever wrote on GarageBand, when I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Perhaps it's freeing to be so unaware. All I knew was that I wanted to sing (and in this song, that meant the pinhole mic on my eMac). I'm so pleased that you all were to share my joy.

Fun! I love the choice of just percussion with your voice. I think you might have a bass line in there but if so it's very subtle and just enough to really groove along with the meat of the song.

Glad I happened across your corner of iComp!

There is a bass line, offbalance, but the drums were the stars of this one, so they got center stage.

And thanks for all of the positive comments, guys!

This is great. Ultra cool and the kind of thing that would've driven people nuts in the early 60's when everybody had Stan Getz records and drank martinis. You would've been best friends with the Rat Pack, too.

I love it.

This is a riot! You give me inspiration, since I have so little command over instruments. Great lyrics. Your voice reminds me of Peggy Lee on this track!

Heard this one on iCR today! This is a perfect outerspace jingle, and so much more. Your vocals are just SPOT ON! Love the hook here. Love the way you say "milky way." This is fun and fancy-free music that just works its way into your dna. I see a DEVA with a body made of stars, delivering this sweet tune at the space opera intermission. The loopy percussions work in your favor here. But this is hands-down a vocal featurette for me. Brava! ~Justin

bhargav_jhn Listener It's really a good work of yours. Nice composition. But why is there a same rhythm in this song like in "Blue earth mix" by Omnicell. Your rhythm in this song and Omnicell's rhythm in "Blue earth mix" resembles. But I want to tell you it's good composition and nice work. Keep it up.

Thank you all for such great comments!

bhar - I'm not familiar with the song to which you refer but I can say that this song is all loops plus vocals, so it's not surprising someone else chose the same loops. This was written in the summer of '04 three days after I discovered Garageband on my computer. I didn't even know there were music sites back then. I was just playing with new software and having fun singing into my pinhole mic. It's a very simple song - just a bass and a drum loop stretched the length with different drum loops dropped into the appropriate spots.
