Song Production Information
sampling masters MEGA
Thanks for always letting me work the way I want. And thanks for letting me come and go like this. When I wrote this song, I didn't deliberately make it as if I felt, "If I don't make it full of energy, it will boil over by itself". And man, is it energetic! (I like it better than pretentiously intelligent music.) I'm still trying to build up my energy again, so let me do another song (but give me a break first!).
Video Production Information
It's a mad video.
Leave TRAN hanging as much as you'd like.
It was fun to come up with it while thinking about playing around the surroundings at work ... *g*
