How Do You Cover Up Baldness? Try The Good Old Combover [AUDIO]

Baldness is no fun.  I miss my advancing hairline.  I'm kind of sensitive about it, but a friend of mine had an idea for a song parody about this very subject.  All he had was the title, but it made me laugh so hard that I decided to "lighten up" and go with it.  Results to follow.

Countryfest Performance Debut – Only Took Richie 19 Years! [VIDEO]

It seems that every place I drive lately, there is road work.  In Niskayuna I was riding my bike through a small neighborhood, and even THAT road was ripped up.  You have to constantly dodge those darn cones.  Hmmm--brings back an old parody, and I mean REAL old.

Happy Secretaries – I mean Administrative Professionals Day [AUDIO]

In honor of the hard working Administrative Professionals out there - or shall we say Secretaries?  Can I say that?  Warren Buffett calls his Administrative Professional a secretary, and she doesn't mind.  Is this insulting? I'm just wondering how you feel, and I'm going to now wonder in song form for you

Richie Sings A Song About His Lousy Doctor [AUDIO]

That's right, Mr. Headline writer.  I am really in a seriously bad mood about my physician.  How's yours?  Do you have one you could recommend who actually RECOGNIZES YOU when you come in, even though you've been going there for YEARS?  I could go on and on, and I will (in song parody form)

There's a fantastic new country song by Billy Currington.  You must know the one.  It's called "Like My Dog" , and basically asks the musical question to a significant other, "How come your not more like my dog?".  Well, I thought there was another animal that deserved equal time here!

Waterford NY Has A New Theme Song! Congrats! – Your Town Thursday [AUDIO]

I loved the participation from all the folks in Waterford.  It made writing even MORE fun than normal, and I appreciate it.  I even had a Facebook friend suggest the song to parody, and it turned out to be a great idea, even if it was a song from 1905!
