Attn Musicians: Geeky Pleasures Radio Show Needs a Theme Song

If you’ve been paying attention to the goings on around here, you know the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show will be back on air in the new year. And it needs a theme song. If only I knew a bunch of fabulous musicians who could write such a thing… Wait a minute, I do!

Hey, fantabulous musicians! Would you mind writing a theme song for the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show? The pay isn’t much; just my undying gratitude plus your song getting airtime once a week. Does this interesting you? If it does, then I have some more information you will need in order to complete this task.

  • The song needs to be 1 min 30 sec – 2 min in length. Genre does not matter.
  • The more upbeat in tempo, the better.
  • The more personalized, the better.
  • Now here is where it gets even more tricksy. I would prefer that it was not trite or cliché. If the humour is forced or pushes the boundaries of satire or parody, I’ll probably reject it.
  • Email your submissions in mp3 format and any questions you may have regarding this quest to music@juliasherred.com.
  • Submission deadline is Midnight PST, Monday, December 27, 2010.
  • Winner will be announced, here on Geeky Pleasures, on Friday, December 31, 2010.
  • Your song will first air Friday, January 7, 2011.
  • And just to make it special, I’ll air all the songs submitted during the relaunching of Geeky Pleasures Radio Show on January 7, 2011.

If you need a bit of inspiration, below is a song that I think is the perfect example of the type of thing I’m looking for. It was written especially for me, as a gift, by the lovely Denise Hudson (@RangerDenni), featuring the wonderful Joe ‘Covenant’ Lamb (@JoeCovenant) and his daughter, Charlotte (it even included a limerick that I wrote). If you are viewing this in an RSS reader, you’ll need to visit the site in order to hear the song.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have, or post them in the comments section. If you are new around these parts, you may have no idea what the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show was all about. I’d be more than happy to fill you in via email. However, nutshell version: Once a week for 2 hours, I play a wide variety of music (including many geeky songs), discuss with my audience something of geek nature that caught my eye during the week or some topic (examples: Why do superheroes wear their underwear on the outside of their clothes? or Pirates vs Ninjas) and interviews (interviews have included: Wil Wheaton (@wilw), Phil Plait (@BadAstronomer), Shane Nickerson (@shanenickerson), Jonathan Coulton (@jonathancoulton), Mike Lombardo (@mikelombardo), Runic Games (@runicgames)).

“In Which Jules Rejoins Us All With Her Bad Self”
Lyrics BY: Denise Hudson / Julia Sherred / Joe “Covenant” Lamb

(featuring Joe “Covenant” Lamb & special guest)

Happy Easter to Julia Sherred
Who handcuffed herself to the bed
of denial and sacrifice
till April third at midnight
counting the sec’s(!) till the END!

Now Jules made a promise to God
or to Great Aunty Maude
or The Spaghetti Monster or to Bob or whoever you like
the point was she would strike
from her mind all the semblance of bawd

Now Jules is the queen of things geeky
But the boys and the girls they are quite cheeky
tempting lively young Jules
to PM with her rules
and I wondered if she’d go get freaky

Innuendo was filling her eyes
She looked desperately to the skies
Praying Polly’d send rain
to cool off her pain
“That’s What She Said’s” were swarming like flies

[interlude consisting of a blended array of samples from the hysterical Count video that made me pee on myself, that Mystic Cat thing, and a certain song from our pre-teen years that Joe overplays at casts that he thinks gets women in their thirties all misted up… and which I play in a motet like fashion on period instruments fashioned from various VSTs]

What could keep poor Jules afloat?
Could a stirring bridge be a lifeboat?
Because just screaming “LENT”
isn’t paying the rent
and so on an unrelated note …

[Enter Joe]

“Now just because Den is the author of this
And the words have come out of her head
There’s a big control freak
In this Queen of the Geek
So here’s words from Dear Ms. Sherred”

{ENTER LYRICS BY JULIA SHERRED, which Joe feels necessary to change and stuff, because he’s annoying}

There once was a guy named Joe
Whom I think everybody should know
He banged on his bodhran
All the while he sang
And Joecast is the name of his show


There once was a guy named Joe
Whom I think everyone should know
He banged on his bodhran
All the while he sang
And Joecast is the name of his show

Jules will go into Joecast
And I think we will all have a blast
As she lays down some smack
That’ll give heart attack
Cuz we’ve all seen how long SHE can last ….

The TMA Podcast was WIN!
You could not be derailed by your friends
Not even passiontide
could pull you aside
As you pushed all the way through the end …

So praise be to the Holies on High
And his hotness Sir Optimus Prime!
As you’ve reached the apex
You can talk about sex
In whichever which way you can find

Since I cannot mail you a taco
down the hall to the headmasters we’ll go
Every slip of the tongue
In our orgy of fun
TMA smacks for chat innuendo

So cheers to a successful lent
We imagine you’re feeling quite spent
May the gal from BC
Give an orgasmic squee!!!!!!!!!
You did it! You did it!

….. #andedric

    @GeekyJules In Artifiction we’re agreed that my suggestions so far have sucked.

  2. […] I’m excited about the interviews. I have a list of 7 people/groups that I plan on interviewing in the next year. I need to get that list to 12. I don’t have to do an interview once a month, but it would be cool if I were able to swing it. I’m also really really really looking forward to receiving submissions for the Geeky Pleasures theme song. […]
