Shark WeekFriday, August 3rd 2012 by Pat
Ahhh yes, Shark Week, that nostalgic time of year when the people of the world set aside their differences. When families gather around the warm glow of a television to watch cartilaginous predators snack on nature.
If only there were more holidays based around marine biology, I think the world would be a better place.
I wrote this song with Marian Call and I have very little musical talent so allowing me to contribute a few words was a big thing. A bit like translating my clumsy sentiment into a new language… probably more similar to lending me wings.
I have great appreciation. Even if it is a silly song.
If you want to support us making more songs and movies you can pick up this track for a dollar at bandcamp. You’d be surprised at how many people contributed to this tiny song and Marian has a nice detailed list of the recording credits posted there.
The music video was shot at my cousin’s house and features Marian Call, Lael Rogers, Izzy Christensen, the Keltner family and a number of fierce and salty pirates.
The excellent shark fin hats, aprons, and oven mitt were made by Carol Race & Carol White.
Thank you everyone who helped with the singing and dancing and filming!!
