Macaroni, Macaroni

The Pancake Song was one of the most popular songs on Sonnets Set To Music, likely cause it was one fo the few that was together musicly. And thats because i did it on the computer!! Any hoo, i thought it would be amusing if i made a sequal to it. I normaly don't like seuquls, but how could something that seemed so right be wrong? So I whiped up this little number.

The drum machine was from a key board I got for christmas in 1988. I was pleased with this because I did a lot of lucky guess work in terms of when the beats changed and in terms of timing and everything. The drums beats were all pre programed on the drum machine.

What I like about the song is that you would expect me to tell you how to make macaroni from scratch, but insted i teell you how to make instant macaroni and chease. That fact makes the song uterly useles, because all instant macaroni and cheese boxes have very simple instructions printed on the side of the box.

I wrote this on may 20th 1999, barely a month after the release of Sonnets Set To Music. I recorded it shortly there after.

For back up vocal influence, I thought of "OPP" by Naughty By Nature."

Now, its easy to tell that I just looked at the side of a macaroni and chease box and wrote the song off those instructions. What I want to clear up is that I didn't get it from a box of kraft macaroni and cheese. At your super market, there are a couple other brands which I think are just a little better, though they are all pretty much the same, i just want you to remember there are other brands besides kraft.
