I don’t have anything to say this week, so here are my favorite Parry Gripp songs.
Hero Rats – Sadly, the video of this song has been taken down.
Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom – 12 million views and counting.
Doctor Who – “Listen girl to what I say/About the man from Gallifrey…”
Bun Bun Bunny Bun – Coincidentally, Olive was also that breed of rabbit.
Robot Dog Is Coming Home – My image is at 1:26.
Space Unicorn – His first drawing request video.
Dramatic Chipmunk (Hey!) – What’s sadder, that I watched it or that I was sad it was taken down?
Hamster on a Piano – This one’s mostly for the video.
This Is my Ringtone – “Everybodylookatme,everybodylookatme, everybodyeverybodyeverybodylookatme…”
Ghost Hamster – I am reminded of all the hamsters I probably mistreated as a child.
…And because I couldn’t quite get it down to 10, Cat Yawning.
Parry Gripp is a jingle writer, hence his propensity for writing catchy, corny songs under two minutes long. He turns out a new one just about every week, right on time to cheer up anyone who’s had a long day. His website has the rather wonderful sort options “sort by date,” “sort by name,” and “sort by hamster.”
