Response to Matt: And Now, A Cowbell Solo

On Sunday, I posted this song. It was a response to a girl named Jane who couldn't get her boyfriend to watch the show Glee with her.

And apparently, Jane's boyfriend (Matt is his name) reads this blog. It didn't take long for this comment to creep up under the post:

First, nice work on the Glee song. I particularly liked your composure while your dog was sniffing around. Secondly, I'm Jane's boyfriend and your right Glee is a slightly homosexual show. But that’s not why I don’t want to watch. I'm a musician myself and can enjoy all types of music, even if it's on a crappy tv show. The reason I don’t want to watch is because Jane sings along with all the songs and it drives me crazy. I love the girl, but singing was not a gift she was given. Actually, I would love to get some advice on how to get Jane to stop singing. If you could work in an accordion and a cowbell that would be gold. Pure gold.

Playing the accordion and the cowbell simultaneously is a skill I have not yet mastered. So I enlisted the help of my good friend, Steve the Cowbell Master. Here is the resulting freakshow of a video:


Things to look forward to: a song about how to survive a tornado, a country western song, and more!

If you need musical advice on anything, don't hesitate to shoot me an email! I am here to meet all of your campy musical advice needs. :)


  1. Ok, I need some musical advice on how to get my kids to sing loudly in 6th grade. I feel a song with keytar and the amplified sound of Steve Radley and Lauren hatch might do the trick?

  2. One keytar song about quiet 6th graders coming right up! I will call Steve and make him sing along :D
