It's a short story. A little bit ago, I got a call from my friend Brendan at ASCAP. The tv types were looking for a new theme song for "The Biggest Loser."
"I can write that song," I said.
I've never seen "The Biggest Loser," but the word was they wanted somethinganthemic and triumphant.
Well! If I can do 12-year-old angst ("I'll Try") adult sadness ("Inconsolable") wacky romance ("How Deep is Your Love") - even folkish sexiness ("All you Gotta do is Touch Me") -
I can do a triumphant anthem. Who did I call for inspiration? ERIC BAZILIAN!! ("What if god was one of us".... "all you zombies"...etc)
We rocked up that track. Eric and I were over the moon.... We never heard back from the biggest losers.
So when Maya Stein and I created "Champion of Normal" - wait a hot minute! - We already had the perfect theme song. I present to you: (with Soggy the Dog as our mascot.)
"WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?" written, produced and performed by Jonatha Brooke and Eric Bazilian. Available NOW on I-tunes!
Please BUY it. GIFT it. Help us keep up the good work at BAD DOG RECORDS. And as always, thank you for your support.
