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.

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)

Wow! You’re Exactly Like My Cat! [AUDIO] Original Song Parody

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!

Which Of The Current Candidates Has The Best Chance Against Obama?

Note: Please re-read that headline.  I'm not asking who you would necessarily vote for.  We try to stay non-partisan on our show.  I'm asking who you think on the Republican side has the best chance against the Barackster.  I think I have the answer, and I would like to do that musically if you don't mind (but again, I'm not taking sides)

Jefferson Elementary Gives Exercise Advice In Song: Readin’, Writin’ and Rhymin’ [AUDIO]

Early to bed, early to rise-exercise, exercise, exercise!  (I don't know if that was the original saying, but I tweaked it!)  Exercise has to begin with the young.  How young?  How about first graders?  Not only are they great exercisers, they're even better rhymers!
