Drum Machine:Too Much Joy

Artist: Too Much Joy

Album: Green Eggs And Crack

Appears On (Mixes): Revme.Vox.Com

Song Notes: This one's chosen just for a relatively simple and dumb reason—mainly, yesterday was my birthday, and my parents got me a drum machine (drum machine, drum maaachineee) -- Aila got me a Nintendo DS and Nintendogs, but there's no songs about that that I know of. This is a live version because it turns out I don't have Green Eggs & Crack ripped on here, which is odd, since I could have sworn I'd ripped that one. Oh well. I suppose I could have walked across the room to rip it, but whatchagonnado. The song was written as they were recording their first record on the sly at a friend's recording studio—they'd come in late at night and work on the record, while in the day, other, bigger bands would make their own records. One night, one of the actual paying gigs ran long, and so Too Much Joy had to hang out outside the studio waiting to go in—they were a bit annoyed at the situation (but, of course, not that pissed or anything, since they realized that this other band was, actually, y'know, giving their producer/engineer money), so they came up with this song and recorded it on the fly. It's kind of a fun one, and I like the "I am Elmer J. Fudd, Millionaire" verse (which was actually said in the cartoon by Bugs Bunny). - Rev. Syung Myung Me
