Well, it’s in the can and submitted: our first entry in the Quick Stop Entertainment Masters of Song Fu contest. (Click here for an explanation of the contest) Our task for this opening round was to write a theme song for ourselves, in the style of a classic television show. (That is, as if there were a song from the 1960s-1980s about us) And we have come up with this:
Paul and Storm – Theme Song
Catchy title, yes? Could use a few more whip cracks, maybe, but heck, we only had a week to make it.
So now our work is done, and yours begins. This is, after all, a competition; and the winners are determined by your votes. So please go to this link and vote for us. And vote wisely, because you can only vote once. (Or at least, once per IP address) Because as we’ve mentioned, in addition to the 20-odd challengers we face, we’re also up against the nefarious Doc Hammer and the agile Jonathan Coulton; and in the battle of the fan bases, we fear they hold superior numbers. So we must marshal our forces and show them we have greater spirit. We’ll do the St. Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V, if it’ll help*. Voting begins today and ends in a week (Wed., June 4th).
Also, you’re welcome to download the song for free (just do that right-click-command-tab-num lock-whatever “Save As…” thingy on the link above); but it’s also available for purchase, in case you wanted to, say, reward the goofy songwriting duo with a dollar for their efforts. Your choice. No pressure. Really.
Oh, and our most heartfelt apologies to Warren Zevon’s “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner“, with which our song inadvertently shares many, many chord changes.
*we will not do that speech from Braveheart, though we will consider reciting some of Sean Connery’s rough-hewn and motivational quips from The Untouchables.
UPDATE: For clarification’s sake: you may vote for one (1) challenger, and the top 5 vote-getters move on; you may also vote for one (1) master, and the top two vote-getters will move on.
UPDATE 2: Thank you to everyone who’s deemed our Fu to be worthy and voted for us so far, keeping us in the hunt! We’re aware that some computers/OS’s/browsers aren’t compatible with the voting page–you also have our eternal gratitude.
