My fourth FAWM song is “25 Random Things About Me.”
If you’re on Facebook, you’re probably sick to death of being tagged for the “25 Random Things About Me” meme. Apparently, no one on Facebook has ever seen a meme before. I responded early on with a piece of PHP code that prints 25 random numbers, but I kept getting tagged anyway. So I grepped the last year’s worth of my LJ entries for those that started with the word “I,” saved the first sentence of each to a text file, threw out those that were completely unsuitable, randomized their order, edited and rearranged them a bit, and used them as the “lyrics” for the song. The music is a loop bed built in GarageBand (which, like most Apple software, is simultaneously brilliant and incredibly irritating), plus (of course) harmonica. I really do enjoy electronica+harmonica so it was fun to do some electromonica.
