A listener requested that I post the lyrics to the programme theme song, and I figured I should probably give a little history about it too.
Back in September of 2009, I had purchased the “I am T-Pain” app on my iPhone on a whim, and was messing around with it. Out of the blue it occurred to me to record a theme song for the programme. I didn’t really think much about it, or write any of the lyrics down, it was entirely improv. It was done in one take (although there was a mini-take before where I got two lyrics in and started cracking up).
The backing track is T-Pain’s song “Bartender” and you can also download the programme theme song.
