Haha, okay, so here's a new song (not like that means anything).
This is pretty much a project for my Music Theory class, but since I liked it so much, I decided to put it up on Newgrounds for all to listen to. There were only two rules: There had to be a theme A and B in alphabetical order appearing only once and containing only two letters of the alphabet (i.e. I needed to have a theme A followed by a theme B)

The inspiration came from another song that I randomly heard once in my life. Actually, it was only a two beat loop that I could not get out of my head, but my statement stands.
The idea for the title is interesting. Ahhh, it makes me laugh just thinking about it. I tried to think of a good title for hours, but I was drawing blank. NOTHING! Just listen. Okay, I told myself.

So I closed my eyes, listened to the song, and felt whatever my body was doing at the moment. My head was sort of bobbing like a giraffe, and then I pictured them all in potato sacks hopping, sporadically pursing each other (in potato sacks, mind you), getting tired (some of them collapse for exhaustion while others are still pushing their hardest in order to win), and then racing again.

Thanks to God who definitely put this in my head.
Thanks to my theory teacher for the assignment.
Thanks to a keyboard and boredom for the interesting riffs.

Hmmm yes. Hahaha. I shall be making it longer. It was only this short to get the grade, which I did. So I shall be making it longer :p

Thank you for the review! I highly value it. So much so that I think I'll write your name on my wall or something xD


Ahahaha! Such a cute song. I can totally see the giraffes, in like, one of those sped-up old silent films :D. A bit short for my taste, but it's nice!

Haha, I'm definitely going to make this longer. Keep a lookout for a longer version (named the same thing). I might even just delete this one!

As jesusbandy, I am probably going to do something special with this review too. Hmmm. A tattoo maybe? Hahaha, I'll think of something awesome :p
