Sing-Along Songs for the Very Weird

A few months ago, I posted one of my favorite songs and a bizarre YouTube video of it. I was subsequently informed that I am very weird. What a suprise, right? Well, this inspired me to make a play list of some songs I like. I've been working on it for months, and I think it's finally ready for publication. It's entitled "Sing-Along Songs for the Very Weird" in honor of a Raffi tape we had when we were little ("Sing Along Songs for the Very Young"- at least that's what I thought it was called, turns out it's called "Singable," but it's close enough). All of these songs make me burst into song. Some I sing the whole thing, some just the refrain, some just a few choice words. But there is no way to listen to this play list without singing. Anyone who wants a copy burned to CD needs to let me know- I'm more than happy to share the weird wealth. Hope you enjoy- this is a true labor of love.

Yo do say "anyone," but you don't really know me. If you want me to send you a couple of dollars first to cover material and postage, I'd be glad to. This sounds like a good mix.
