Trip of a Lifetime (with Miss Cathy)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a version of “Trip of a Lifetime” that features Miss Cathy, AKA Kathy Cramer. Miss Cathy is doing her best Betty Boop imitation and Pete liked to use this version as a transition from one scene to the next with his screen titles in the background.

Once again, I ran this through GB 5.1 to try and enhance the fidelity. Some of you in St. Louis will recognize the final chord as reminiscent of the old Frederick Roofing commercial. “For a whole in your roof, or a whole new roof. Frederick Roofing.”

The artwork is a recent photo of Miss Cathy.

Lyrics
I'm getting ready to go down to the station
It's going to be a big sensation
We're going to see this whole darn nation
It's going to be a really good vacation.

Oh it's the Trip of a Lifetime,
It's the Trip of a Lifetime
It's going to be a really, really nice time,
Cause it's the Trip of a Lifetime

Yes
Yes, there are about three more. Two are instrumentals and a kind of Freddie Cannon '50's pop version which will probably be the next one I put out.

Commercial
It's just a 6th chord. The Frederick commercial was on for years in St. Louis. We even did several parodies on World Wide Magazine.

"For a soda so big,
You could drown a pig,
7-11."

apologies for being late.
The divine Miss Cathy aah - she has her own fan club here in the land of druids, she could even have been a Canton Girl methinks.

The music is spot on, - truly entertaining and makes you feel good.

Wonderful work from both of you.

No Apologies Necessary
Thanks for the comments woof. We must get on with our music and move forward.

I think I finally have something figured out for "Canton Girls." Must move forward on the Hot Peanuts project.

It's a Trip All Right!
Glad you liked it Magnatone. Did you ever think of changing your name to Mangatone and then you could be eating your music? That was a lame joke if I ever wrote one, and I have.

Thanks so much for the support.
