Do The Blink (And Take Off Your Pants)

I very much wanted to have my own dance. I always wonder what it would be until I came up with the blink. Soon as it entered my head, i knew I had the newest dance available. All it needed was music.

Well, sure enough, just a few days later, I was walking home from work and I started humming the bass line, which at the time was the guitar line. So I went home and recorded the guitar line so I would remember it. Then I got ready to record it and laid down the drum track. I started playing the drum beat funny, by playing the snare where the bass drum should be and the bass drum where the snare should be, and walla you have the drums from Do The Blink. Then I recorded the bass and guitar part.

Something was still missing so I thought to myself "whats missing??" Then it hit me.

I had always wanted to record a song with whistling. I had recorded The Erectial Disfunction Song a few months earlier with whistling, but I didn't like the way thnat song turned out. Well, whistling seemed like the perfect way to fill the track, and boy was I right. Not only did it fill in the track, it made it awsome! I decided I didn't like the guitar part so I never put the guitar into any mix downs.

Like many of my songs, I didn't write a chorus when I wrote the song. I came up with a chorus while recording it. I didn't like the chorus though so I had to completely re record the song with a new chorus, which is the one that ended up on the record. The chipmunk voices were a spur of the moment idea I didn't really gave much thought to, and it worked out. The first and second version of the song are exactly the same except the first version had better whistling and a shittier chorus and a shittier ending.

Some of the dances mentioned in the beginning of the song are not real dances. The song was written on Febuary 9th of 2000, and I think recorded not much later.


well you may know the twist
and you may know the stroll
you may know the aligater
you may know the bowl
you may know the jitter bug
you may know the sink
but theres still one dance you don't know
and its called the blink

the blink is the new dance

all the parents think its sick
its the greatest dance ever
and its so easy to do
i tought a frog to do it
and now im teaching you

well first you wink your right eye
then you wink your left one
then your right then your left again
this dance is really fun
wink your eyes back and forth
thats all you gotta do
if you do it with the one you love
then they will surely love you too
