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 correct, 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 the song to be sort of 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 it to be much funnier and fit more in line with the Bananaman’s character.
Here’s my demo version. Please forgive my singing.
