Because I typically parody pop songs, one of the most common reactions I get to one of my filks is “That’s interesting, but I don’t know the tune.” In the past, I’d kinda shrug and take it as one of the pitfalls of having eclectic and modern tastes in music, and figure there wasn’t much I could do about it other than learn to play the song so I could perform it for people.
But now, thanks the magic that is the modern Internet, and particularly YouTube, I can now provide those original tunes for people who don’t know them. So I’ve gone through my online songbook, and for every song which is a parody and for which a suitable online source for that song is available, I have provided a link. So if you’ve ever looked at one of my songs and wondered how it went, now you can find out! And if you haven’t ever looked at my songs, here’s a good excuse to!
A project for a future date is making scratch recordings available for the few original tunes I’ve done, but that will have to wait for another day.
The songbook can be found at: http://www.autographedcat.com/songs/. Enjoy!
