This blog is devoted to the band The Really Good Pot Roast.
New Year’s Fool
Rob got me a melodica for the holidays. It is obviously awesome. Yesterday, Rob challenged me to write a song using the aforementioned melodica, my ukulele, and a tamborine. He asked that the song be called ‘Redheaded Stepchild’. I was able to fulfill 3/4 of his challenge. Only fitting the resulting song is in 3/4 time.
This song is called ‘New Year’s Fool (New Year’s Day)’ instead of Redheaded Stepchild because that’s where the lyrical narrative wound up. I tried to write something funny as the proposed title suggests, but I couldn’t get there. Instead, I wrote this. It’s a, well, it’s a song with uke, melodica, tamborine, and vocals, in 3/4 time. This isn’t a punk song, fair to say. I’m getting over a cold, so the song is a bit nasaly. But I’m pleased with the 2 hours of work.
Let me know what you think, dear internet.
