Liner Notes: 

Liz and I like to do collabs on 10x10s. She writes lyrics for me and I write lyrics for her. We each make songs from the madness. It's quite fun.

Liz says: Always fun as I never know what strange and quirky lyrics Val will send that I have to make music for and sing… Don’t ask me what Lucy toast is - I have no idea, I’m just the musician but I gather it is quite burnt…But seriously, I do LOVE Ketchup and must have mentioned that to Val once

Lyrics: 

FOOD SONG FODOR (aka EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK)

1 - PANCAKE PROBLEM
Early morning
Flipping pancakes
No! It stuck to the pan
Early morning
Making breaking
Oil should have been in the plan

2 - GARLIC GAG
you put garlic on this and garlic on that
garlic… damn garlic
garlic makes your breath stink
and garlic makes me sick

3 - LUCY TOAST
Last night she asked
How do you like your eggs
This morning she's making Lucy toast
As she scrapes the burn from the bread

4 - DONUT BURGER
she ate a glazed doughnut
bacon cheeseburger
I know it’s tempting
but don’t judge her…

5 - SWEET SWEET POTATO
Sweet...sweet...sweet...
potato
Might be sweet...sweet...sweet...
So sweet it makes me want to gag

6 - FREE LUNCH
I found a hair in my salad
and a bandaid in my sandwich
would you like my lunch?

7 - KETCHUP LOVE SONG
Ketchup on the mashed potatoes
Ketchup on the chicken breast
Ketchup on the eggs, hey it's tomato
Ketchup on the steak is the best

8 - STANK POPCORN
(Sniff sniff sniff)
something smells like sweaty feet
(pew..)
is it the popcorn you’re going to eat?
(Ewww…)

9 - MUSHY PEAS
Mushy peas
You look like poop to me
Like you came out of a baby's diaper
Why do you taste so good?

10 - SEAFOOD SICK
the mussels were gritty
shrimp were mushy soft
that seafood linguine
was a little..(gag)..or a lot off



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Excellent, Mushy Peas was my favourite!

So fun! All of these made me smile - a great collab and a great 10x10!

Awesome, the whole set-up of this 10x10 is fantastic and makes for something really enjoyable to listen to. Every bit is different and fun. The ketchup tune was my favorite. I loved all the little dialogue bits added throughout here.

This is terrific! Ten perfect little jingle-like jewels of great humor and musicality, all connected together by the clever food theme. I might personally pick Free Lunch as my favorite, but really, they’re all such fun and so well done, and fit so well together, that I can’t really isolate a “best” - they’re all the best!

What a fun 10x10 collab hahaha. Very entertaining and I like the effort you put into the production, adding in cute little effects and varying the songs musically.

This one was so much fun, I like the use of different musical styles throughout and it feels like things get slowly worse as they progress. I feel like it takes a turn at the ketchup...

Somehow potatoes always find and wind their way into a 10x10

This is the 2nd 10x10 I've listened to that mentioned peas. I have no idea what Lucy Toast is, but somehow I don't think it's going to plan! The little asides of dialogue really complete the piece, but I think 1 and 4 are my favorites.

Oh, you both had so much fun with this and it really shows. I love the theme and you never stray onto the too gross side - which is quite a talent with this material!

I think my favorite was FREE LUNCH.

Seems like you two had a ton of fun creating these. Fun to listen to as well.
