I’m going to write a series of blogs about some of my favorite tracks from my two comedy albums. All of my music is now available on a “name your own price” basis. That means you can download it for free, or pitch in a little to support my musicomedy habit. So feel free to download and listen along.
I think the reason that “Coppin’ a Feel” is my favorite song is because it is about something that I am truly passionate about: grabbing boobs. I think it’s the most genuine song I’ve ever written, because it’s subject matter is something I truly hold
dearly. It’s a topic that I can really grasp
. I’ve seen a lot of gropings happen
in the audience while I play this song, and I like to think of this track as the “home edition.” Feel free to play it anywhere as a license to squeeze.
I’ve played this song more than any song I’ve ever played in my life. It has been a part of nearly every show I’ve done since I wrote it, so it seemed natural to make it the first song on American Chipfunk. It was my favorite bit of percussion sequencing, and it was the song that convinced me I was doing the right thing thing by switching from Fruity Loops to Ableton Live for my drum tracks. I ended up using a little electric guitar, some synth, and piano in additional to my usual lineup.
To show that I do my research and am not just writing songs willy-nilly, here is a brief pictorial history lesson on “The Art of the Grope”:
Copping a Feel was invented way before the birth of Christ. This photo was taken long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away.
Nipple pinching was popular in 1591, when an unknown French painter captured this gem. It now hangs in the Louvre.
The 1930's were not-so-great for most, but this unidentified man scored a stone-faced double boob grab.
It doesn't always have to be grabbing a boob, it can be the butt of a famous athlete like Kerri Walsh, as long as she's distracted.
Accio mammary! Even famous authors like JK Rowling are not safe from the molestation of our g-g-generation.
In the future, the Vulcan nipple pinch could replace all other forms of copping a feel. It's sweet revenge on Spock for Captain Kirk.
Don’t you feel smarter now?
Now, in the interest of saving boobies, melons, juggs, hooters, ta-tas, mounds, tits, titties, yabbos, garbanzos, cans, knockers, mammaries, sweater puppies and funbags so that they’ll still be around to squeeze, fondle, grab, pinch, honk or rub, here are some ways to help prevent breast cancer or raise awareness:

Sponsor my friend Becky Kinder in the 2010 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
And lastly, eat Pomegranates.
And for some 5th of July fun, here is someone’s list of the most influential boobs in American history. For some reason, they are all actresses, and I can’t help but cringe at the painfully glaring omission of Mrs. Mary Phelps Jacob, the inventor of the modern brassiere… Anyway: http://blogs.ocweekly.com/heardmentality/wtf/boob-war-special-the-13-origin/
