Phineas & Ferb Song Demo -"Tristate Area Unification Day"
Martin Wrote: Rough songwriting demo for "Tri-State Area Unification Day" from the Phineas and Ferb episode "Hip Hip Parade".
Written and performed by Bobby Gaylor and Martin Olson.
Bobby and I are also the staff writers for the show.
Demo produced by Martin Olson. Aside from Bobby's fun lead singing, the cool part of this song is the counterpoint parts going on at the end.
Recorded lo-fi in my office at Disney using Garageband on my laptop and no mics. Our songs usually take about one hour to write and about an hour to record the demo.

This version has less Disney-friendly lyrics, but I think I like this version a little better.
That's Bobby singing lead and me singing backups.
PS - This song is extremely fun to sing. I'd love it if some fans would perform a cover of it on youtube;
I'll post the words and chords below. And you MUST yell out "RIGHT OVER THERE!", "AREA UNIFYIN'!" and "SCREAM AND SHOUT!"
