RAD Songs - Songerus Prolifourus Vox Parodiseus

RAD Songs


Rick A Duncan (RAD) was influenced by CSNY, The Who, The Beatles, Mozart & Beethoven. But - and this is strictly my own opinion - somewhere along the line he got severely corrupted by the likes of Tom Lehrer , Alan Sherman , and most certainly PDQ Bach. As talent & perseverance would have it, he has actually been very successful in that Universe, having often shared a stage with those very artists on the Dr Demento radio program, among others. I personally found the classical influenced sections on RAD Compositions very interesting and surprisingly polished, but the traditional RAD humor that he has built his career on is represented mightily in the 25 selections here on RAD Songs.

Usually I have lyrics first. This one was a riff in 9/4 that I played without words. I used the Philo method of writing the lyrics quickly before I recorded, not even knowing what the heck I was talking about. Later, two different people said they understood it perfectly. I still don�t know what it�s about.
