danonymous Read the description of how this album was conceived ... that's nuts! Every song is great. Can't decide if Droops Maghee or Silent Treatment is my favorite though. As for Sweet Canadian Mullet, well, where else can you hear John Stamos name-dropped? Favorite track: Who? Droops Maghee?.

about

"So, Be Yourself" was my third Album-a-day: A challenge where You try to write and record 20 minutes worth of original material within a 24 hour time period.

My friend Will came over and videotaped the making of the album, but then he accidentally erased the footage.

I was cleaning my music room at around 10AM, and I ran across a bottle cap because I am a pack rat. In this case, that was a very good thing. It was an old Sobe cap that said "Sweet Canadian Mullet" on the inside. I thought to myself, 'That needs to be a song title!'

Then I got to thinking a little more, and I thought 'Why not get ALL of my song titles from Sobe caps today! So, it was off to pick up Will and then we stopped at Safeway and bought 8 Sobe drinks.
The actual recording process started just before noon (PST) on Sunday, August 3rd and wrapped up at around 3:33 in the morning on Monday, August 4th.

Track Name: Sweet Canadian Mullet
What's that on your head?
You're looking unique
IT'S AN AMERICAN LOOK
SO YOU CAN SAVE YOUR CRITIQUE!
I'd say your hairstyle's old
But, it's still pretty sweet
CHECK OUT MY MULLET!
CHECK OUT MY MULLET!

There's people pointing
There's people laughing
But, honestly
you probably knew that it would happen
So, be yourself
It isn't bad
The hair that Billy Mitchell wishes that he could have

When they see your head
They don't know how to act
BUSINESS IN THE FRONT
WITH A PARTY IN BACK!
Up in Canada
They think you're on crack!
CHECK OUT MY MULLET!
CHECK OUT MY MULLET!

There's people staring
There's people glaring
I think it's cool
that you're honestly not caring
So, be yourself
It isn't bad
The hair that John Stamos wishes that he could have

[CHORUS]
With your Sweet Canadian Mullet
You get noticed for your hair
With your Sweet Canadian Mullet
You stand out in a crowd,
but you really don't care

[SOLO]

When your hair grows out
It's big, and it's bold
IF YOUR MULLET HAD TEETH
THEN IT COULD SWALLOW YOUR SKULL!
You could bring the look back
Where it wasn't so old
CHECK OUT MY MULLET!
CHECK OUT MY MULLET!

There's people asking
If they can touch it
They ask if it's a wig
And just how long it takes to brush it
So, be yourself
It isn't bad
The hair that Captain Planet wishes that he could have

[REPEAT CHORUS]
Track Name: Prime Time
I know
I need
To prove myself
Before
I can
Become 'top shelf'
In time
I might
Just have exactly what it takes

I don't mind practicing
I put my fair share in

And it's bound to work out fine
'Cause I'll be the next in line
Because it's been a dream of mine
To be in prime time (prime time)
To be in prime time (prime time)

I worked
And soon
I got the part
It felt
So great
I felt so smart
And still
I have
To say it's different from this side

The magic kind of fades
When you see it every day

When you work behind the scenes
Well, it's nothing like those dreams
But, I guess that's what it means
To be in prime time (prime time)
To be in prime time (prime time)

Egos and flare, and tempers too
Why the hell did they get the bigger dressing room?
And, if that no-name chump got a raise, I better get one too!

The smiles are fake when the camera's on
Like a spoiled, trained monkey that knows how to perform
But, the moment the red light's off, it's back to
Stabbing more backs (*clap* *clap*)
And covering tracks (*clap* *clap*)
Distorting the facts (*clap* *clap*)
And insincere laughs

I see
It's not
The way it was
Back when
I dreamt
About this stuff
They lie
They cheat
They steal
When they're not kissing ass (*kiss* *kiss*)

But I didn't hone my craft
To put up with that crap!
(Back up off me, sir.)

And I never would have guessed
It's such an overrated mess
It's a waste of time at best
To be in prime time (prime time)
To be in prime time (prime time)
To be in prime time (prime time)
To be in prime time (prime time)
Track Name: Bizarro World
This planet's twisted
That description fits it

Why are we here, is there some sort of a plan?
Counting our blessings on less than one hand

There are countless rumors
Some sick sense of humor
There are no answers, I can't venture a guess
And if I do, it only adds to my stress
I'll take my chances and just hope for the best
in...

(CHORUS)
Bizarro World
Things don't always make much sense
But, I still live here
And I don't know
What the point of all this is if I am sincere
I'll make the most of the time I have

Theories are infinite
Don't get wrapped up in it

When you feel more insignificant than small
You wonder what's the point of living at all

Racing thoughts on fire
Makes a mind feel tired
We may not know just where we are, or are from
But, while we're here we can still laugh and have fun
I know that it's not always easily done in...

(Repeat Chorus)

Look within yourself, but not too hard
Next time you're staring at the stars
We don't always find out who it is we are
But, no matter what this is I hope you find some happiness in...

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Who? Droops Maghee?
You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?

We've had our problems
That much I admit
I thought we worked through it all
Now you're telling me to sit

You say that you're sorry
And that you used to care
You considered your future
And I was not there

You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?

You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?

I didn't expect this
I'm sitting in shock
When you called me into the room
I thought "She must want to talk"

When did you decide this?
It's such a surprise
It doesn't make any sense
So, is there some other guy?

You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?

You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?

You packed all your clothing
While I was away
You didn't waste any time
And you're leaving me today!

I know he's behind this
And it was his plan
So, good riddance, I'm through with you!
Go be with that poor excuse of a man!

You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?

You say that you're leaving
You're leaving me
But, who are you running to?
Who? Droops Maghee?
Track Name: Ahhh...How Are You Doing?
Ahhh...How Are You Doing?
Nothing much has changed for me
I'm still the same ol' dork
I guess I always will be

But, how about You? How is life?
The time flies by so fast
I just thought that I'd ask
And so I did

(CHORUS)
We're all getting older
How did it get this way?
I reminisce when I remember
My hair is going gray
And even when I reach December
It will be okay
How are you doing today?

Ahhh...How Are You Doing?
Me, I've made some mistakes
But, my regrets are few
It hasn't been a waste
But, how about You? I will listen
I haven't always had a golden ear
It's nice to get the chance to reminisce
When you are here

We're all getting older
How did it get this way?
I reminisce when I remember
My hair is going gray
And even when I reach December
It will be okay
How are you doing today?
I'll listen to what you say

Ahhhh
Ahhhh (yeah)

Ahhh...How are you doing today?
Ahhh...How are you doing today?

We're all getting older
How did it get this way?
I reminisce when I remember
My hair is going gray
And even when I reach December
It will be okay
How are you doing today?

We're all getting older
How did it get this way?
I reminisce when I remember
My hair is going gray
And even when I reach December
It will be okay
How are you doing today?
I'll listen to what you say
Track Name: Silent Treatment
You say more with your eyes
Than you do with your words
Don't get me wrong
I like when we talk
I'm not saying you should 'shut up'
No, I'm not

It just blows my mind at what you can express
With a look on your face
Or a move of your arm
It's part of your charm
You gave me the silent treatment today

Normally, I'd be worried
If there's nothing to say
But, your eyes meet mine
And I know we're fine
You gave me the silent treatment today

It just blows my mind at what you can express
With a look on your face
Or a move of your arm
It's part of your charm
You gave me the silent treatment today
You gave me the silent treatment today
Yet, I know that everything's okay
