    This is a link to a song that my friend and I wrote and recorded on the school grounds. It all happened within a few hours for some fun. It’s about a young man growing up and making decisions about his favourite vegetable. The Yam.


    Please enjoy, may I also point out it sound its best after about one minute into the song. Thats when it shines.

    And of course the lyrics:

    By The Chins

    Is it possible?
    May I borrow your yam?
    Oh yes I can
    Oh yes I can

    Will Jordan
    Ever eat
    His delicious
    Yam, yam, yam, yam
    Yam, yam, yam, yam

    This is for sure
    The juiciest of
    The yams
    The finest yam
    The finest yaaaaaaaaaam

    Will he ever taste it again?
    Will his lips marry?
    The delicious flavour
    The taste of a fine yam

    If there was anything more
    Yamable I don’t want to taste it
    You’re the spud for me
    You’re the sweet potato of my dreams

    Many thanks Atari0!

    Let me be who I am
    And let me kick out the Yams

    ... That's... something alright...

    It's a tad loosey goosey, and I'm fairly sure someone's not in tune with somebody... who's not in tune with somebody... or something. Well, it kinda reminds me of Fleetwood Mac meets Destiny's Child meets Thanksgiving meets The Flaming Lips meets... alright, I'm done. So, C+ for effort.

    I think it's the fact that everyone's out of tune. From the guitar, to the bass, to the off-key singing.

    B- for effort. I liked the singer's vibrato. If he could sing in key, you could really use him.
