Decided to present these old Animaniacs-related song parodies I wrote back in the day and still remember — one of The Brady Bunch theme, one of The Beverly Hillbillies theme, and one of American Pie which I had written upon the airing of the final episode.
Pulled some shirts and the 1995 A! calendar out of storage so I could wear or take pictures of them to add visuals as the songs play. Everything else seen in the video actually is on permanent display in our house!
A couple weeks ago, we went to dinner with a friend and her family, who had defected from the Soviet Union in the 1980s. When her mother saw a strawberry on one of the plates, she commented about how it was out of season, and that it reminded her of a joke they had in Soviet Russia:
When can you buy strawberries in Russia? From May to June. When can you buy strawberries in America? From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
This weekend I recorded myself playing The Skeleton Rag, a song from 1911 by Percy Wenrich (of Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet, On Moonlight Bay etc. fame) with words by Edward Madden. I added the lyrics to the video. I'm playing it in F though the song sheet music is in E-flat. I also mistakenly played a couple extra measures in the chorus. Oops!
