Music Week: Challenge Bros.

About a week ago, Mike came to me with a musical request: a brief theme song, in classic/cheesy/great 80's TV style, to be used in an Ultimate Blogger 2 challenge video. Awesome.

That night, I struggled to find the right melody — everything was either too Power Ballad or Perfect Strangers. Then, the mystic power of the brain kicked in and I woke up the next morning with a solid theme waiting to escape. I fired up GarageBand, played like a maniac, and recorded it in about an hour, just like your glasses.

On the left, the final song with (questionable) vocals as featured in the video. Then, just for you, the original longer version, Karaoke style. I'm not traditionally great at sharing this kind of stuff — but I do hope you enjoy it.

Don't forget to watch the challenge video itself!

(Also, if you have iLife '06 GarageBand, here's an extra special treat, remix-ready.


I like how you were apparently influenced by the World News Tonight theme song.

So you're probably free now to start scoring the sushi video....

First I had the Swinging Nordwest song stuck in my head for so many days, only to be supplanted by the Challenge Brothers...Cabel is master of a dark and powerful magic.

my mind was reeling when i heard this song originally on the video. first i was like wow how did they find this song from the seventies to fit so well. then I saw the second video and was flabbergasted with the challange brothers theme song again. i though their production value to these videos was through the roof!

well done.
on a sidenote what is wrong with the perfect stranger? "rising high on the..."
