Recording "Getting Geeky"

Last night, I spent most of the evening recording parts for a 'studio' version of "Getting Geeky" (a live performance video of which is here—beware, the video starts automatically). It's coming along really well! I've still got to work on the ending and the instrumental bridge a bit, but I should have a workable draft done fairly soon.

The recording will be going onto my next album, Doctor, Captain, Dovahkiin, Chief, along with "Spoilers", "The Man Dressed In Brown", "Too Much Skyrim Blues", "Smells Like Beam Rifle" (not one of mine, rather written by the inestimable John Kovalic of Dork Tower fame), and seven to ten other songs.

In fact, of the songs I have yet to record that could potentially go onto the album, which ones do you think they should be?

Which unrecorded songs should go onto Doctor, Captain, Dovahkiin, Chief?

I only voted for the ones I had some nodding acquaintance with, or the ones that had titles that I liked, so I only voted for, I think, six. I hope it helps!

[C'mon people, show "Nightlife in Santa Clara" some love! :D]

Just voted. I really hope Obrien's Mongolian BBQ makes it.

Re: Poll
Considering that it's currently tied for 3rd place, I think it's a pretty good bet. ;-)

Funny seems to be the crowd-pleaser. I was leaning more toward the personal pieces than the fan works. Plus, you know, I've played on all those songs.

Wow - that was tough. I'm glad I don't have to make the final decision!

Yeah, the trick will be to winnow it down to 8-10 songs. But the numbers are coming out ... interesting. :)

I noticed a you had a couple of DC Universe songs* and a couple of blues songs in the list, and the idea occurred to me that you might want to save those for future themed releases.

* And where is the Green Arrow song?

Hmmm. Themed albums. I hadn't considered that, but you're right, I almost could do a DC-themed album. And no, don't yet have a Green Arrow song, but I just finished one about the Joker, and I'm working on one about Green Lantern. Plus, there's The Ballad of Barry Allen, which isn't mine but I could easily cover. That's five right there. Certainly enough for an EP.

Interesting idea. Thank you for mentioning it.
