I've just started on my next parody song, "We don't eat dogs" to the tune of We Are the World. In the comments of the thread below, Manhattan Infidel insisted on singing. He's probably kidding, but maybe not. But it gets me to thinking... It would be EPICALLY AWESOME if everybody in our little corner of the blogosphere contributed a line or two, as was done in the original. So, step up, people!
If you are worried about your singing ability, don't. I'll be singing on this too, guaranteeing that you WON'T be the worst singer involved. I can even leave ya out of the credits if you like. This will be fun, and I'll do all the pain-in-the-butt editing and mixing. All you gotta do is sing (as many or as few lines as you like) and record it on your computer. Windows comes with basic recording abilities; I'm sure Mac does, too. Or you can download Audacity if you want to tinker with your sound. Then send me the file. Easy-peasy!
Drop a comment or hit my email (in the right blog column under "contact innominatus") to get aboard!
Harvey raises good questions in the comments. My plan is to finish the lyrics and sing the whole thing through, for timing's sake. Then I'll send my audio files to other participants. These others can sing any part they like, using my suggested lyrics or those of their own choosing. Then I'll graft their vocals into the mix. I'll post the lyrics here and color code them so people know what parts have been done and what is still needed. I just set a new speed record for "last bite at the New China Buffet" to "violent trip to the bathroom" in just 35 minutes so I'm done fiddling with this project for the night. I'll have more for ya tomorrow...
