CD Turns Bin Laden Into Butt Of Jokes
Pop-rock comedic operetta 'Tall Tales of Osama Bin Laden,' produced by Janet Fisher in 2004, is re-released to celebrate the end of the terrorist.
Los Angeles, Calif. (I-Newswire) May 12, 2011 - Janet Fisher, producer/publisher at Goodnight Kiss Records, created the comedic album "Tall Tales of Osama Bin Laden" in 2004. Back then, she had no idea of the celebration that would greet news of his death, but is pleased that the controversial recording has new significance now.
After the dispatch of the infamous terrorist, the album is enjoying new life as a party recording. People are having barbecues and laughing along with such satirical songs as "Tall, Dark and Ransoms," "I'm Turnin' in my Turban," and "I am Invinci…" a song that has the extremist die before he can complete the word "invincible."
With 34 songwriters and artists collaborating on the l4-song album, the twisted world of Bin Laden is musically explored from multiple perspectives: his mother, his therapist, his college roommate, and one of his wives, among others. Considered shocking at time, the album now feels like a wild revue on a late-night cable TV show. "The mockery of OBL is merciless, as it should be," notes one of the singers. "Writers from around the world thought about this fanatical, scamming, mass murderer and then put that to music," said songwriter/singer Princess Ten.
One song, "Osama, Your Mama Raised a Killer," is sung by Bill Spooner, famed founder of The Tubes ("She's a Beauty"), while other tracks are handled by a highly respected group of session and studio musicians and singers.
In a world where fear can send people into the torments of relentless and apprehensive discomfort, the songwriters on this CD fight back by applying their command of the human soul to the notes, rhythms, and lyrics on this uplifting collection of parodies. The songwriters provide a grand opportunity for all Americans, to dance on all of the tortured dreams of Osama Bin Laden.
"There are a few defining moments in one's life, where you have to stand for something, or run from something," said Fisher, who is President of Goodnight Kiss Records as well as publisher of the "Tall Tales of Osama Bin Laden" songs. "We chose to stand together and fight the oppression of fear with our own musical message of truth."
For all the comedic moments on the album, there are serious feelings, too. "There's some subtle rage deep down in the whole CD, but there's also a lot of humor here," said Lani Silver, co-writer of "Osama Your Mama Raised a Killer."
The CD musical-comedy-parody songs from the album "Tall Tales of Osama Bin Laden" are available on iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby. Or visit www.goodnightkiss.com/talltales.html
