iTom: Free Music From Tom Smith

Music in every style -- except dull. Tom Smith, the World's Fastest Filker and the prototypical geek folk-rocker, releases new music for free download on a regular basis. (It was a song a week for almost a year.) You can subscribe to the RSS feed, purchase a better-quality MP3 of the song, or purchase three months' worth as a downloadable album.

iTom Special: Bad Horse Death Note

Thirty-five seconds of utterly frivolous, this. It exists because:
  • something else I was working on this morning wasn't working
  • Anne made me watch the anime Death Note over the summer
  • "Bad Horse Chorus" from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is way, way too easy to parody.
Not really spoilerish -- more of a summary of the series' premise. Many thanks to Moses Lei, whose MIDI file I adapted for this.

Music: "Bad Horse Chorus" by Jed Whedon and Joss Whedon

Death Note, Death Note,
Death Note, Death Note.

A shinigami's notebook has fallen from the skies,
Picked up by Light Yagami, smarter than most guys,
Whoever's name is written within the notebook dies,
And now behind his good facade,
Light's killing crooks and playing God.

Death Note, Death Note,
Death Note, Death Note.

Now L, the great detective, is hot upon the case,
He knows the killer Kira needs a name and face,
L thinks it's Light Yagami, they're on a merry chase,
One will smite and one get smote,
It's either Light or L -- Death Note.

You, my friend, are sick, twisted and completely demented. I like that in a person.

Thanks, Tom. This has been stuck in my head for THREE DAYS.

Do you know how hard it is to grade while having this chorus in your head?

Me and all my friends are Death Note fangirls and we all love this song. We all have it memorized and will randomly burst into song. :D
