Help write the FM "theme-song"

Recommended Posts

Guest

I shared with Rick the cassette music tape of fishing songs I that recectly got from Elliot Silberman.
I pretty much have been listening to this tape every time I climb in my truck!
I am hooked on Elliot's great homespun sound. He does some absolutely great fishing tunes!
I plan to play this tape at the I.C.E. Series events as part of the entertainment.

Elliot is an caricature artist and a "jug-band" musician. Rick liked his music and stated that he'ld like to have Elliot help compose and produce a fun theme-song for FM.
Elliot is willing to do this!
Here is the reel fun part... we can all pitch in here to write the lyrics.

Think of all the things you want said about FishingMinnesota and write em down in this thread. Elliot can grab bits & pieces to build the song lyrics.
I figure this song to be fun, humorious, and tell all about FM in general.
"We have more fun" should be in there somewhere.
The tune will be kinda Sweedishish/NorVEEian
and in "Yooper's" style (that is per Rick).

So...
Heck dar boys, write dis tune yourself!

We'll maybe use all, or some, or part of these lyrics you write here to have Elliot make the finished tune up.
The finished song will be recorded and played here on FM in a download.
FUN!

As in "reel" life, I think of a song about a guy who is explaining to his wife exactly why he "needs" the internet... so he can access FishingMinnesota.com.

I picture this as a Scandahuvian rap song---

My name is Rick, I'm a real swell dude
I like to fish when I'm in da mood
girls really like the scent I'm wearing
because I smell like pickled herring

and in the background you have two guys saying
Ya shur, You betcha, ya shur, you betcha

My buddy's song, for you country music fans:

She thinks my Tracker's sexy,
It really turns her on.
She's always staring at me,
as I go trolling along.

After some wine 1 night here is what I came up with. To John Denver's Country Boy
I never finished it though.

Well life in the shack is kinda laid back sittin on the ice and listening to it crack ice buster is going down so I give a liitle slack...

Thank god I'm on the ice again

When I get to the shack its really kinda cold but that dont stop me from getting out the poles.
I turn on the heat I clean out the holes....

TG I'm on the ice again

......Chorus (I never thought of)


2.Well Im gonna fish hardwater till the day I die I'd rather eat a fish than eat an apple pie!
when the fish are hitting hard the time really flies by


Thank god i'm on the ice again

Chorus

Hey, anyone here play musical instruments?
It would be kinda cool to have a "fishin' MN" band and play around a little just for fun. I play some rhythem guitar, and a little mandolin, we could get some other guitarists, an accordian, banjo, fire up some ice augers, or whatever goofy thing we can think up...

Here are some of my fishin' lyrics I wrote smile.gif

Rudolph the Lunker walleye

Rudolph the lunker walleye
had a very shiny eye
and if you ever saw it
you would just sit down and cry
all of the other walleyes
used to stare in disbelief
they never let poor rudolph
stage on any walleye reefs!

Then one foggy Christmas eve
(insert favorite FM fisherman) came to say
rudolph with your eye so bright
why don't you bite my jig tonite!

Then he caught ol' rudolph
guess it just was not his day
rudolph the lunker walleye
is about to get fill-aayyyyyyd!!!

"It was a bullhead" (sing the tune wooly bully)

One day I was fishin
but not a bite all day
then I finally got one
but to my dismay...

It was a Bullhead!
it was a bullhead
Not a walleye
not a crappie
It was a bullhead

It had a big yellow belly
and long slimey wiskers
little beedy eyes
and watch out for those stingers!

Ugly Bullhead!
it was a bullhead
ugly bullhead
slimey bullhead
it was a bullhead

Next time I go fishin
Im not gonna whine
if I hook a bullhead
I ll just cut the line!

no more bullhead!
bye bye bullhead
ugly bullhead
slimey bullhead
it was a bullhead

If you could put the words to music, our 'pledge of the ice fishing trip' might work:

May all the fish be biting,
May all the drinks be drunk,
I hope it's not too butt-a$$ cold,
and that I don't get itchybutt.

Da wife had dat look on her face... ya know, like half glad to see me and half like she was full of hate!

"You been fishing half of last night
and been gone all day!
And you've gone off fishin again
and forgot our 23rd anniverserary date!"


I did'nt forget for sure, Oh no there Honey.
No sir... I memberd it all along, sure do.
But ya see Sweety, when I was on da FishingMinnesota.com the talk was on da Mille Lacs Lake, and da Lake of the Woods, and on the Mississippi River too!

Well Baby dats a lot of drivin, between da fishin... don't ya know.
Well dat is, ya I know you do...
but forget all that right now then Baby
and come lookie here what I picked up for you!

(Cont.later...)

We do have to keep it family oriented.

Let's keep the alcohol references out.

I'd like to se it focused on year round fishing - outdoor fun.

Emphasis on "We Have More Fun"

Humor is high on the list of priorites and it would be nice if we didn't exclude da women or kids as anglers smile.gif

I like what frozen minnow has going with John Denver's Thank God I'm a Country Boy. Now if we could add FM somehow into the chorus and another verse relating to summer fishing, i think we'd have something.

"FM man" to the tune of the beatles "nowhere man"


Hes a real FM man
sitting in his beat up Clam
on a frozen wasteland
just shiverin'

Starin' at his aqua-Vu
wonderin' what that fish will do
mabye caught a pout or two
who knows but him

FM man keep fishin'
for that hawg keep wishin'
FM man may not get a bite but
he has more fun, yeah ya ya ya ya

He'll fish all day with jig or spoon
troll all night under the moon
up in the mornin' with the loons
just castin' away

(repeat chorus)

Hes a real FM man
Out to fish whenev'r he can
makin' all his fishin' plans
for fun, oh yeah
Makin all his fishin' plans
for fun oh yeah
Makin' all his fishin plans
for more fun...

This is my version of "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" playing off of frozen minnow's idea:

Well life on da lake is kinda laid back,
Der ain’t much FMers like us can’t catch.
It’s early to rise, early to check da threads.
Tank God I have da Internet!

I’d read “Fishin Minnesota’” all day if I could.
But da boss and my wife wouldn’t take it very good.
So I “post” when I can, work when I should.
Tank God I’m a Fisherman!

Chorus:
Well I got me a fine boat, I got me ole fish pole,
When the sun’s comin’ up I headin for da hot hole.
Fishin Minnesota, “We Have More Fun!”
Tank God I’m a Fishermun.

When da work’s all done and da sun’s settlin’ low,
I pull out my raps and I speed up da troll.
Da kids are along so I gotta catch me some!
Tank God I’m a Fishermun

Well I wouldn’t trade my boat for diamonds and jewels,
I was always one of dem der fish hungry fools.
I'd rather have my tackle and my fishin’ toys.
Tank God I get to fish wit da boys.

Chorus:
Well I got me a fine boat, I got me ole fish pole
When the sun’s comin’ up I headin for da hot hole.
Fishin Minnesota, “We Have More Fun!”
Tank God I’m a Fishermun

Repeat Chorus.

Still looking for more good stuff.

I'll start with a couple phases and you add a couple phases and someone else add a couple phrases and lets see what it looks like when we're done here.

I get the easy part smile.gif

FishingMinnesota.com's got me on the run.
My boss doesn't know it, but We have more fun.

IceLeaders.com keeps me cool and nice.
The Leading Edge they say keeps me ahead on ice.

(Ok, it's pretty lame, I'm not good at this...but I know a lot of you really are GOOD at this).

Come on...add your two phrases right now:

Oh kay, were goin' for some rap. yo yo here we go.

Were fishingminnesota and we're goin' fishin'
Having more fun, that is our mission!


At fishingminnesota we are real hip hoppers,
waitin' for those lunker bass to smack our poppers!


At fishingminnesota we may dress sloppy,
but we have the most fun while jiggin' for a crappie!


Here at fishingminnesota we got glo devils and angel eyes,
better grease that pan, cuz some fish are gonna fry.


Lookin' for that big one but it won't be a long wait ,
cuz I went to fishingminnesota and got some bio bait!


Ice fishin' with my buddy and my Vex is hard to see,
cuz after reading fishingminnesota he bought an LX-3!

Well...
I heard back from Elliot. He saw the FM site post here and is impressed with our attempts in songwriting... and thinks "we" should form our own FishingMinnesota Jug Band!
Hey, it could be great fun.
We could spin a couple of songs out here for FM, ya... for sure we could.

Elliot says it is real easy and that he can help "get us on the road" if we like.
He says... "As juggers, it is fun to disguise yourselves. You may really enjoy The 8th Battle of the Jugbands held every Memorial Day Sunday here in Duluth. Six hours of old time string band music. Yes Yes Yes....do it... do it ...do ut!! You must, must.......A truly wonderful idea. Go for it. Its the only way to make the wife smile when you get back late, maybe. Humor. Thats it."
You can "see" some of the music that Elliot does at elliotbrothers at their .com address. I pretty much am playing the demo tape Elliot sent me full time in my van... it is great! A couple of my favorite tunes of Elliots is "Da Hookset" and Coho Hand Cream For Men
http://www.elliotbrothers.com/yooper.html

If any of you guys are interested... I am ready for some "pickin' & grinnin'". Hows about it? Wanna play? We got some good starts for some "smoking" fish tunes right here, ya we sure do!
