Sometimes I get commissioned to write a silly song for someone. It happens most often for birthdays. Sometimes it’s for someone I care about. But sometimes it’s for someone that someone I care about cares about (but I don’t really know). All are bonkers. On one occasion I have produced a personal masterpiece (sorry, not this one!)
To write a song for someone that someone I care about cares about (but I don’t really know), I require a list of interests and attributes for that person. In this instance the list included:
Greece | 50th Birthday | Magic | Wizard | Madonna | Student | Jewish | Awkward Teenager | 80’s
The challenging component was that I didn’t receive the list until 1:00 AM while I was sleeping, and when I awoke I had to work fast to get the song to Greece (which is ten hours ahead) before the end of birthday festivities. This is what I managed to scramble together this morning.
