youowethattome said: I would die of happiness if you can get permission to post the Radiohead parody from tonight's Clarence. It was frickin' amazing.
Thank yooooouuuu! Here you gooooooo!
For those that don’t know: this is a song I made for Clarence on Cartoon Network for the “Slumber Party” episode, specifically scenes where Sumo and Jeff are hanging out in Jeff’s bedroom. The directors thought Jeff probably listens to music like Radiohead, so I made a parody of Morning Bell with lyrics about the troubles of being super smart (like Jeff)… (Click through for Soundcloud player if viewing this on Tumblr dashboard)
I feel as though I’m sad although emotions are dumb
Sick of being smarter than everyone
I’m depressed, I pass every test
I’m a genius I guess
But I’m lonely, nobody can know me
I’m trapped at the top of my towering intellect
Oh no no no no no no no no no no no no
p.s. CLARENCE IS THE BEST WATCH IT ON CARTOON NETWORK YEEEAAAH!
danielavidan said: In the 12th episode of Clarence, "Rise and Shine", when Clarence speaks to the mountain lion, there is a song that can be heard in the background. Notable lyrics include: We are lions/I'm your lionheart/Your'e my mountaintop, and I want to know, was this song a reference to Always by Erasure? Did you record an entire song, and would it be possible to post that online? Or at the least, could you post the lyrics to this song so others might be able to sing it as well?
Hi Daniel, thanks for getting in touch! I generally only produce as much music as is needed for the clip - the turnarounds are very tight so it’s usually a case of doing only what’s necessary! This cue was indeed a reference to Always by Erasure, well spotted!
For those who haven’t seen this episode, it’s from a bit where Clarence gives an emotional speech to try and talk a mountain lion safely down from a tree. WATCH CLARENCE ON CARTOON NETWORK IT’S THE BEST.
Here’s the song, lyrics below:
In our hearts we are one
We are lion
Like a mountain hides the sun
Your feelings are hiding
Leave your tree
Come with me
And let the raccoons go free
You’re my lion heart
I’m your mountain top
Together we’re a liony liony mountain
necdeep said: my god! I saw you at wilderness and gave you a hug, worry not I have set up my shrine for you
I want the shrine to either be in a matchbox or to be bigger than a cathedral. Please send pictures. p.s. Thanks for the hug! ;) x
At Secret Garden Party I was such a great person that I won a goldfish! I later found out it was just a bit of carrot but that didn’t stop me from falling in love with it. I cried when I ate it. I miss that carrot so much.
See me play at Wilderness Festival at The Village Hall Thursday 20:15, Saturday 18:30 and on the Friends of the Earth stage Sunday 1pm!
I got trapped in some kind of nightmare of fun at The Secret Garden Party. These clowns were very prescriptive about when I should be laughing i.e. all the time, all the time, all the time. Thankfully they couldn’t tell the difference between laughing and screaming, so I got away with it.
BUT REALLY I actually had a very nice time playing in The Village Hall, thanks for having me! Met a bunch of brilliant nice people and had a blast playing fun cover songs in Simply Rouge (all your faves, no Simply Red).
Next stop Wilderness Festival! I’m performing in The Village Hall tomorrow at 20:15, Saturday 18:30 and on the Friends of the Earth stage Sunday 1pm. Come and say hi!
