And how did this happen?
(By Project creator Kim Noble)
How The Dorks came into existence—the behind-the-scenes story:
Starting with two lyricists who have a bit too much time on their hands, Tracy led the charge in creating some lyrics that jumped off a hilarious page
and kept the project going with his tireless finesse! But neither of us could have ever imagined that James Fraser from the grand UK country and Jenny
Brennan from the even larger country of Canada would ever take this to such a level that left Tracy and I speechless… and that is quite a feat. Adding
in a chorus of fun crooners like Dave Scheuner (California USA) and Jerry Eriksson from Sweden, well, you’ve got one entertaining tune that left us all
rolling in the aisles. And, since Jenny’s mixing skills will leave you wondering if we really are all together live… let’s put it this way… none of
us will ever tell. 🙂 We truly hope you enjoy this one-of-a kind tune and be sure to be on the lookout for the revival of The Dorks coming to a SoundBlend
arena near you! 🙂
How did this happen? Really? 😀
(By co-producer, mixer, Dork JennyK.)
I don’t know. Some how I got sucked into a space time warp engine and got chucked out in an alternative universe where JennyK mixes spoon, mandolin, and cowbell. Was it possible?
Well, it happened. And it’s one of the most entertaining songs I’ve worked on. It’s a lesson in audio editing and mixing that I’ll never forget. I nearly killed myself laughing when I realized what a jug track was. The Dorks are real! The Dorks will be forever awesome and I’ll be there for the revival. Thank you thank you thank you very very very very much.

Some people say we’re two of a kind
And that we’d quite agree.
I’m yin, he’s yang There’s no denying
She’s peanut butter; I’m jelly.
The truth about all of this show
Is to set the record straight
We’re the type that’s clear to see
To separate us would be a mistake.
We may not be in our right minds
But it’s the only minds we have left
We may not be the thinking kind
It’s something you’ll have to accept.
When your bulb is not that bright.
There are few thoughts to regret.
We’d like to sing another line
But this is all we have left
Our mamas separated us at birth
The years completely froze.
We lived our lives in disarray
Until we found Kompoz. 🙂
So now we celebrate this truth
By writing down the rest
We call on you Our fans so true
To sing our Right Minds Left
