My album cover

When I make my album, this is roughly what the cover will look like. Before you ask, yes I will have the bubble perm.



Tracklisting
1. Just Havin' Fun
2. The Wildest Time
3. Party! Party! Party!
4. Get On That Dancefloor
5. She's The Nicest Lady
6. Moving In The Night
7. Susan
8. Pains In My Heart
9. Dying Inside (Where Did She Go?)

(bonus track)
10. Enter Sandman (Metallica cover)

My internal artistic debate is now over, I have made decisions.

Will your chest hair also resemble the face of a crying panda?

Only nine tracks? Slacker!

(Fans are never content, no matter what field you happen to be in.)

What if the tracks are really long? Would it be OK by you then? WOULD JOHN A's ALBUM PASS YOUR DAMN TEST THAT WAY? JUST BUY THE ALBUM.

SHE'S THE NICEST LAAAAADYYYYYYY.

Less a panda and more a sick wombat. Just look at it and I'm sure you'll be reminded of Australia, only the throwing up version this time.

P! Art! Y? Because we party with ART! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
(enter screaming guitar solo that lasts for ten minutes. Why? Because it is ART.)

See, ther's no point in even getting the perm unless you have a mullet. And a mustache.

Listen, mang, I know this doesn't have anything to do with your blog and is thus disrespectful to mention in this forum, but OMG. OMG OMG OMG is that a Prisoner reference in your comic of August the Twenty-Second??!? AAAAAAAAAAHH!!!! KEEP them coming, and I will totally fly over to England to do your household chores for you! Or whatever!! AAAAAQAAAAAH!!!

"See, ther's no point in even getting the perm unless you have a mullet. And a mustache."

And a job at Chick-Fil-A.

But what will the album be called, John? I need to know so I can go into my local record shop and ask for it in an unnecessarily loud voice. Possibly followed by a "Whoo!".

John A said...

Hot Days, Hot Nights. On Dunhill Records and Tapes. Ask for it wherever records are sold.

John A said...

PS 9 tracks is the 1970s way and frankly, the right way. But there is Enter Sandman (the single, appended due to pressure from my A&R man at Dunhill). Believe me when I say that I "let rip" on that song. The marimba caught fire (and that was just recording the demo)!

My question is whether the heart-felt ballad that will convince 'the ladies' that you are indeed a soulful man is track 7 "Susan" (a lovesong to one's first love, perhaps?) or track 8 "Pains in my heart" (which is either suggesting that you lay off the double cheese burgers, or that you have been recently jilted and wish to soliloquize upon it.)?
Answers! I need answers!

Would you consider this to be a rock opera? If not, why not?

Roman said...

I can totally see John rocking the marimba.

It seems to me that you have overlooked an important T-shirt market. Where are all the XXXXL shirts for those horrible obese Americans that like your comic? Talk about a walking billboard.
