Ok. All those years of piano lessons didn’t go to waste. Well, actually I never took piano lessons, but I play around a bit with writing and playing music. I thought it might be fun to produce a parody and video to go along with it.
In my misspent youth, I acquired some eclectic musical tastes and learned to play a number of instruments. Bless computers and home studios I am now able to create music for my own enjoyment.
So, I gathered my guitars, bass, keyboards and a couple of Shure SM-57 and SM-58 mics and played around with a parody of the old Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show song Sylvia’s Mother. I penned some words and called it Obama’s Mama.
Hopefully you will get a laugh out of it. I had a great time recording it and producing the video.
P.S. – It is hard to imitate the Dr. Hook sound without the Medicine Show. I was going from memory. (i.e. – without the “medicine”.)
This is only a parody, so please don’t mock me.
