Description
My daughter (Loren) just received a "singamajig" for her 10th birthday from one of her relatives yesterday. Now I've never seen or heard of this singing toy until then and after watching her play with it for a few minutes I was instantly impressed - so much so I just had to drag it into the studio as soon as I could pull it away from her - Actually she helped me record the track. (Thanks Loren)

I worked on a little music for the backing track and let the little fellow do his thing - however I did have to pitch a few notes to bring them into key.

So here it is - "the singamajig song" - We hope you enjoy,

mvh : )

the singamajig song
So here I was digging that cool lead synth tone wondering when the singamajig would enter the arrangement. Then I realized the cool synth sound was the singamajig! Excellent!

I actually market those! My company sells them & they go faster than hot-cakes! At first I thought they were odd (to say the very least) but they are really adorable! Great tune & very creative!

Great backing track
and production and a wonderful idea to record the toy - it works well. Maybe we will see it turn into a superstar.

singamajig
what a cool soundbed....and rather different from the cornwallace band. really dig the easy groove of this, and the toy deserves its own record deal...i just hope it isn't a primadona toy. this really is a cool track michael...and i love the ending....is that manipulation of its voice at the end using effects? cool.
