I'm Busy. Here's Some Turtles To Tide You Over

I have never seen a better example of something that's really sort of complicated that is made to seem effortless and off-the-cuff. This is a very sophisticated trifle.



We used to play this song, and break into the theme for the Gary Shandling Show in the middle of it. I'm sure the Turtles would approve. Key of F. 1.2.3.4...

Turtles! I love turtles, but the pecans and caramel get stuck in my teeth.

Gosh I wonder what trifle you're busy with these days?

Whatever information RAA does not possess, she guesses anyway.

That, or I make them up.

I'm not sure what's "really sort of complicated" about that clip.

Is it the video technology circa 1960s?

Hi John- I gave you the wrong impression. The video portion is common folderol, what people do when a camera is pointed at them and they have nothing to do. The singing is fairly sophisticated harmonically for a pop song, and was much copied by others. It's just a trifle, but a very pleasant one.
