the great
Luke Ski
Marvel Poppins 
featuring Carrie Dahlby
I woke up Monday morning at 10:00 am, read the news headline 'Disney to acquire the Marvel Comics franchise for $4 billion', and immediately got an idea for a song. By 3:30 pm, the song was written. I called Tom Smith, and with his assistance I got a rough demo recorded by 6:30 pm to present to the powers that be at FuMP. On Tuesday, they approved, and via the graciousness of Devo Spice, Rob Balder, Possible Oscar, and Steve Goodie, room was made for me to post the song on September 4th. Wednesday night I went to Carrie Dahlby's apartment and recorded her vocals. Thursday morning Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad mixed and mastered the song. Which brings us to Friday, when the new song "Marvel Poppins", which is a parody of a song whose title is one word with 14 syllables, was posted at the Funny Music Project website for free download. I went from song idea to finished posted track in 4 days. I believe that's a record for me. I hope it goes viral. I also hope some kind of fan video manifests for this. If I wasn't so busy moving, I'd make one myself. Anyway, please tell your comic book loving friends to check out "Marvel Poppins", and I'll see you all again in 7 1/2 weeks.


This song is now available on the following CDs:

I have Luke Ski songs on either side of me!

Nice job getting a song out in record time. You know this means it's time for Luke Ski's Thing a Week, right?

If this doesn't debut next week at #1 on DT20, I'll be VERY shocked! :) Well done!

The "Gorsh, it's clobberin' time! A-huh-hyuck!" line is the funniest thing I've heard all week, very awesome, guys.

Good to see ShoEboX echos my thoughts. I felt so strongly about what I was saying, I posted it twice.

It's a nice song... but it's too soon Luke... many of us are still mourning.

Link sent to the Justice League Unlimited, who should have a good laugh.

Truly inspired! The "switch to DC" and the Goofy holler at the end are the best!

This may rival Pr-pr-pr-procreate for the best thing ever to be put out on the Fump. Timely, funny, and quality. I can't help getting the idea of "Hulk Tales... whoohoo..." out of my mind!

Luke always been a huge fan of your heard this song last night and after the first verse I was too busy crying to catch the rest. After listening today I must say youve done it again. Great job and congrats on how fast it got out

That's totally awesome! I agree, you should totally do Thing A Week - you could do it just based on the stuff you observe about random idiots while doing caricatures, and it would be hilarious.

Impressive...Most Impressive. :)

My faves: Stitch/Wolverine and Goofy/Thing... holy crap that was greatness! It was like a little ball of magic... or a mini tridium-sun... of fanboy/girl bliss!

See, if the Grammy awards were done right you'd win for this song.
