for this ghost in the kitchen songwriting challenge, i was wondering

would a ghost like chicken? if he (or she) would be in my kitchen
or would meat be forbidden?

and should the booze be hidden?

so i made a first draft of that... ;D ;D ;D ;D ::)
the faul mouth at the end is ...the ghost, forcing me to express things  :o :-X :-X :-X

  :-X :-[ but it is the first draft  :yes: :yes:, and,,,,i am sure that ghost won't bother me anymore..mixing it..right  ::) ::) ::) :P :P :o :o

me, myself, and Pie

Seriously, @Dutchbeat ....this is a great tune. It is infectious.....it is now stuck in my head.

The ending is just.....amazing.

@Dutchbeat I was thinking of a cat, rather... But @Leonard Scaper is right that it is quite catchy. And also quite busy and short of breath. Quite a nice tune :)

I think EVERYONE likes chicken so a Ghost certainly would. The question is, would a ghost taste like chicken? :)

This is wacky, off the wall and unique. It's catchy and fun, good work mate.

Your Ghost is very special... Things are changing about tastes so I was thinking Ghosts now are vegetarians or vegans???
But your's is a rebel or a traditional one.....  ::smiley:: ::smiley::

I liked a lot your tune, really, the intro is so... interesting and the sound FX and atmosphere... as well as the gimmick so contagious!!! you are a big competitor....  :-\ >:D

Sorry @Dutchbeat  could you share the lyrics? I would like to know the words your creature is saying....  ;D

Dang @Dutchbeat .... this is crazy. It sounds haunted enough as well. I do kind of wish the vocals were more clear.... but the words are pretty funny from what I could gather. The kitchen, chicken, prison rhyming scheme is very unorthodox. ;)
It is catchy and

Good show!

great song!!!  ::thumb::

Liking the strong drive in the strings in this one @Dutchbeat  . By leaving out some effects on the vocals here & there  , the lyrics may well be more clearing. Super fun song

@Dutchbeat The lyrics( I could make out most) are fun and those strings (if that`s what they are) really drive the rhythm along with toe tapping percussion layers.
I`m glad you reminded us of the dancier, zannier side of the supernatural ::thumb::
