This blog is devoted to the band The Really Good Pot Roast.
the Really Good Pot Roast - We’ll Come to You (A Theme for Jules)
I have a theme song, and it is brilliant.
genuinely crying, though, about how much I love this. and you guys. thank you. ♥♥♥ xoxoxoxo
Glad you enjoy your theme song. We had a good time with this one and it came together fairly quickly. More themes to come. Stay tuned…
I’m reposting this because I accidentally sent an older mix to Jules originally. Now that she’s updated her post with the final version of the song I figure I’d fix ours.
Easily our favorite of the theme songs.
Mark Dabney - Hit Me Baby One More Time
Britney Spears cover
Every once and a while, one of us will send the over an song we’ve recorded with no details attached other than a brief message to the effect of, “This happened today. Thought I’d share it with you.” Sometimes these songs are original tunes with odd lyrics or music, other times they’re interesting cover choices. Today Mark sent me a cover song. This is the entire email message he attached (The MP3 was unlabeled, but I’m including the song title to grab your attention as you scroll through your dashboard):
I recorded a song. This is the last time I touch this thing. The idea got in my head while I paced around the house my guitar in hand. I found I had a fair idea of the chords, but looked them up, along with the lyrics. But I decided to record it anyway.
What you hear is the first time I played through the song in it’s entirety. I’m being cagey with the title because, well… just listen.
This isn’t for 50/90, certainly.
This just kinda happened because it amused me. I’m sharing it with you because (1) I thought I’d share (2) you might laugh, (3) I’m an idiot.
I enjoyed it so much I’m sharing it with you fine folks. Mark doesn’t know I’m posting this to the band blog, but he will in a few seconds…
MARK’S EDIT: Well, I clearly know now. Well played, sir. Well played.
My favorite part of this song (Aside from the song itself) is the fact that it starts with Mark’s signature 15 seconds of breathing.
I have a theme song now, courtesy of the incredibly talented gentlemen from The Really Good Pot Roast.
Let’s be honest, this is funky as hell. Their inspiration was that this would be the song that would play at the beginning of my late night talk show. They nailed it.
Now, excuse me while I go dress up like Bootsy Collins and dance around the house to this for the remainder of the day.
As the final horn sounds, you should hear Ralph in your head say, “Welcome to Helm’s Deep. I’m your host.”
I’m still pleased that we matched the pitch and tone of the Horn of Helm Hammerhand.
The Really Good Pot Roast has written a theme for my tumblr. When asked what kind of music I enjoy, I shrieked, “‘80s Synth Pop!!!!” Yeah, they did it right. This is just awesome. I’m listening and head bobbing with my eyes closed, thinking all sorts of meaningful things.
I have made the album artwork the f*cking flower that I would really like teenage girls who are into “boho” to stop reblogging. That f*cking flower now has over 14,000 notes, is being used by some UK internet shop (without my permission), is several people’s avatars, and is the bane of my internet existence. It’s like people haven’t really thought about the whole Georgia O’Keefe “sometimes a flower isn’t just a flower” thing.
Seriously guys, this is awesome. I’m giggling and bouncing over here.
And finally, another theme song, this time for the awesome Lady of the House. Check back with us soon for updates on our theme song album to be released on Bandcamp!
Would you like Thor with your Thor?
When I started this tumblr just over two years ago, I never imagined that I’d ever have a theme song or that this really would be a blog about men’s armpits. What a long strange road it’s been. The Really Good Pot Roast made me a theme song and it’s awesome! Follow them on tumblr. Listen to my theme song. Explore my armpit tag (x). Go!
Another awesome tumblroo, another theme song. We had a lot of fun with this one, going for a They Might Be Giants feel. And we got some title help from the better half of The House.
We’ll be collecting these theme tracks together for a charity EP in the next couple of weeks, so be on the look out. We’re also starting the 50/90 songwriting challenge, so look for new music from us this summer, and a new full-length album this winter!
We’re glad you’re here!
My motherfuckin’ theme music!
Written, played, and rocked the fuck out by Rob and Mark, also known as the Really Good Pot Roast. (the raddest pot roast ever)
AKA THE GREATEST DUDES ON THE PLANET, WHO ALSO DID THE THEME MUSIC FOR A CERTAIN LADY OF A CERTAIN HOUSE! If you don’t already know, I cannot help you.
You guys seriously made my day/month/year
Listen for it. It’s so rad. You’ll know when you hear it.
How awesome is this?
There *might* have been alcohol involved.
It was a good day in the studio.
About as metal as we’re ever gonna get.
It is a really good thing I am alone right now because the happy dance I am doing might be construed by strangers as a fit. BECAUSE I HAVE A FUCKING THEME SONG PEOPLE.
Courtesy of The Really Good Pot Roast. You guys are the fucking best.
Back up haters, enjoy the Cuntitude because I took the O out of Cuntry.
Another theme song in the books. This is about as country as we get, folks.
Congratulations on your recent culinary school graduation.
Cherry Ice Blues - Robert Rubin
Labor Day has come and gone. The end of summer is upon us. For me, summer is cherry ice season. [Insert horribly obvious shameless self-promotion segue here]. This is another song from my first solo album, Now That You’re Here, available now on my website! I wrote this track last summer for a food themed challenge on 50/90. It started off as just a simple bass & soloing guitar song with a click track to keep the pace. when it came time for the album Mark came up with the idea to give the track a proper drum section. I’m pleased with what he did.
Incidentally, the album is Name Your Own Price. I figured I’d explain that since it completely baffled my entire family and I ended up having to walk them through it one at a time so they could download it. If you want to download it for free, insert $0.00 when it asks for the price. you can also insert any other dollar amount you may feel appropriate.
I think it’s finally spring time! Uncle Louis G’s should be open any day now.
Mumbled Gripes (Remix) - The Really Good Pot Roast
A while ago, we wrote a theme song for Dr. Cranquis. We’ve decided to give it a remix and repost for 2 reasons. One, we’ve been working on theme songs recently in advance of our upcoming Tumblr Theme song Compilation with all proceeds going to the Red Cross. Two, as a teaser for an upcoming Cranquis Project celebrating his soon-to-be 50,000th follower. And three - we have 3 reasons for the repost. One, Tumblr themes project, Two, Cranquis 50K project, Three, gives us more practice with our new mastering software, and Four shameless self-promotion of previous albums, DAMN! We have 4 reasons for this post which have been listed in my previous sentence.
Mumbled Gripes, The Official Dr. Cranquis Theme, appeared on our album You Have Died of Dysentery. CLICK HERE to visit BandCamp and download all of our albums for free!
In the wake of the 2014 Pranquis masterpiece, I thought this was a relevant reblog.
