We have this song called 'Turn Around' on the record, and this sounds sort of odd, but I just sang these melodies into my sampler and had each key triggering a different two or three note melody, and I just messed around with it.
That was supposed to sound like the Modernaires, the vocal group that sang with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, like in "Chattanooga Choo Choo." Not like the Chipmunks. It's all me singing; we sped up the tape for half of them, for the notes I couldn't reach.
