Songs of Dunder

Songs of Dunder has 15 songs, giving you over 40 minutes of "hey, what kind of music is this anyway? " If this doesn't appeal to you, please consider buying this CD for someone else, someone a little off. We all know people like that. We actually are people like that, but the point is: people like that are very hard to find special little gifts of the "where on earth did you find it" variety -- to which you reply with a smug look, pretending that it’s all in the course of a normal day for culturally adventurous people like yourself.

"hey, what kind of music is this anyway? "

Very few people have noticed that Songs of Dunder begins and ends in the key of ’D’, just like the word "Dunderhead". As far as we are aware, this is the first time this has ever been done. Not even Rolling Stone Magazine picked up on it. After your friend or family member has had it for a couple of months, you can say, "did you notice...", which of course is another opportunity to broadcast your formidable powers of observation.

Dream Girl

This is also big mix-up. It isn’t on the CD. This is what happens when you plug a digital input from one song into an analog output of another and play with the light dimmer.

Mr. Blue

I’m Blue

Our most popular tune on iTunes and Rhapsody is I’m Blue! You may think it’s no big deal, but this was a seismic event over at Dunderheadquarters. We really don’t understand it. This is a seriously goofy song.

It’s one thing to say your music is "tough to categorize" it’s another thing entirely to get music reviewers to prove it for you. Reviews

"the more I listened, the more I like this song. Bottom line is it’s a great listen"
"funny and comical. very original, and very different. sounds like circus music, or would be good in a movie"
