Jam Cellar: The Musical

A couple weeks ago I referenced the guest DJ show The Jam Cellar did for Yehoodi Radio a couple of years ago.  In addition to 10 of our only best DJ’s contributing their favorite songs to play at the Jam Cellar, the executive producer, Jesse Miner encouraged us to be as creative as possible with the program.

We didn’t need that much prodding.  Since a number of the Jam Cellar crew at the time were pretty musical, we decided to write and record our own theme song for the show.  Here it is in two parts.

The Opening Theme

For those of you who want to sing along at home here are the lyircs as written by Luke Albao and Naomi Uyama.

Jam Cellar – Go and ask your fortune tella where you can jiggle like Jella She’ll see in her leaves of tea

Lindy Hopper’s Delight Tuesday Nights Columbia Heights You should have seen the sight of us trying to make that rhyme Took a really long time

Jam Cellar- Where its hotter than hellah But as sweet as marshmellahs What an awesome place to be

The Closing Theme

Jam Cellar-You’ll feel like a southern Bell-ah In a mansion painted yellah Take the metro on the green line and you’ll find

Jam Cellar- You’ll hear Billie and Ella but not a note of a cappella even if it is ‘Splanky’

    I love that one of the “steps” in the lesson is That Thing That Andy does. 😀

    Jerry, any chance there is somewhere we can acquire either of these songs?

      We’re going to put them up on the Jam Cellar website eventually. Of course I’ve been saying that for a couple of years now. I suppose this is a good reminder. http://www.thejamcellar.com/
