Description
I'm sorry, but there's something undeniably hilarious about Thomas Kinkade. He's painted the same hokey picture 700 times and people eat it up. He's got to think Thomas Kinkade is hilarious, too.

I was trying to get a wall of vocals sound. Kind of a 70's Queen thing. I double-tracked each part of a 5-part harmony and compressed it. Ended up sounded more like a gospel bit, which ended up being a fun, fitting surprise.

Lyrics
Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light
When I see those cozy cottages neatly nestled
between Wet Seal and Lady Foot Locker I can feel
my dreams come true. Explosive wavelengths of Kinkade
force trauma to the soul. So this is what
immortality feels like?

Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light
Did you ever see that movie where Morgan Freeman plays
Barack Obama? I think it's called Deep Impact. Well, anyway, they get
all these big shot scientists, doctors, Elijah Wood. And they stick them
in a mountain to preserve the future. Well I know they would put
Thomas Kinkade in there because he is the only glimmering light
of hope we have in this world.

Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light.

I know.
I hate Kinkade's stuff. It looks like bad old fashioned Disney animation backdrops. You are great at this choir effect. Fun song. Thank you.

Man, this one made me howl! "That movie where Morgan Freeman plays Barack Obama" nearly killed me, as did the deep voiced "Light" and the "Big shot doctors, Scientists and Elijah Wood". But make no mistake, comedy sentiments aside, this one rocks with some killer guitar tones and I'm loving that choral effect - as you say possibly a bit more gospel than Queen but I think if you had different voices doing each harmony line it'd fix that for you (assuming it even needed fixing).

Excellent, excellent stuff and really brightened up my morning!

Now that was a fun listen to start my day! And so well produced! Will I sound like a douche if I say I love the artwork? :)

Extremely neat
There's actually one painting I really dig by him, but I see what you mean that they all look the same. He's the R.E.M. of the painting world.

Never saw Deep Impact.

Very, very catchy. Great harmonies. Totally, absolutely original concept.

Good to see you again.

LMFAO
I HATE Thomas Kincade. As a painter, and the proud owner of an MFA in Painting to boot, this joker has always been a pea under my mattress, a seed in between my teeth, way in the back, the one that you can't reach and you can't think, or talk until you get that f-er out of there. Yeah, where was I?
oh yeah, nail on the head baby.

Great storytelling
At first I was worried .. that you were going to repeat "Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light" 700 times to make your point .. but a repeat of four times makes the point perfectly.

I also think you pull off creating a soundtrack that both mimics Kinkade's glossy visual effects .. while also lampooning his stylized efforts .. thereby delivering up an undeniably hilarious - yet serious - satire.

I love the spoken-story-style verses, which contrasts wonderfully with the harmonizing choruses. Nice delivery. Great storytelling! Don't you love it when a song idea comes together like this?
