truckin songs

b0bbarker  asked:

Did you recently possess the body of a Taiwanese woman named Joanna Wang and release an album last year called Bob Music? Because it sure sounds like you did. And by that I mean go look up songs like Truckin Everyday and When I Nod.

NO LIE, I’ve been internet pals with her for years! She sent me an acoustic cover of Bill Watterson back in 2007. We catch up over gchat every couple months and share what we’ve been working on.

She’s had a really interesting career: She debuted as a very successful singer in Taiwan, mostly of mainstream-sounding covers. But over the past several years she’s totally reinvented herself as this eclectic, synthy baroque pop monster.

ATTENTION OTGW FANS! 

Do you yearn for music like the kind played in the show? Well I did some searching and found two of the composers were in a band called Tim Timebomb and Friends. A few of their songs have that distinct OTGW feel to it, so I suggest looking into them! All can be found on youtube too! The songs I’ve found so far that give off that OTGW vibe are:

Everybody’s Singin and Truckin (song in this post)

Version Days

St. Louis Blues

Dinah

St. James Infirmary

Blue Skies

Some of These Days

Some of these songs have some singing, and some don’t. In my opinion the singer’s unnecessary (and doesn’t have the best voice), but hey I love the instrumentals

EDIT:

They also play in the California Feetwarmers!! The songs are really good so give a look at them! Their music is more OTGW-esque while Tim Timebomb has a wide variety of music types.
