This is one I've been wanting to do for quite a while. The re-done version of "Spiral Mountain" used in Banjo-Kazooie Nuts 'N Bolts is a beautiful piece of music, that I remember being described as Banjo strumming the guitar and slowly remembering how to play, as if it had been years since he used it ad it was all coming back to him. In that sense, I did this song "in character" as Banjo (and Kazooie, sort of) singing about their daily routine in Spiral Mountain like an ol' folk song. I'm really proud of this one; I think these are my strongest lyrics and vocals I've done for any music project in the last several years. I hope you all enjoy it and please lemme know what you think!
-LYRICS-I'm going up again, climbing to the top.
I'm'a get there and I ain't gonna stop.
I'm gonna climb Sprial Mountain a thousand times and more.
'Cuz adventure's-a-waiting for me to explore and then.
I'll climb down the mountain trail, go over hill'n dale.
Back to my humble home, eating my honeycombs and,
Then I'll go back to sleep, wake up in the morning and,
I'll grab Kazooie and shout "wa-hooey!" and,
Hey! Ka-zooie wake up it's
Mornin', time tah go! Where, well 'a dunno!
But I'm sure that we'll have a bit 'a fun.
So whadda you gotta fret about?
Hop into mah pack!
We'll make tracks across the planes under the sun
'N then we may pick a carrot patch,
Getta "Bawl" 'n play 'sum catch,
Eat a Collywobble then,
Head up't Spiral Mountain
Walk down the bridge in to the Witch's lair
and we can give her somethin' to worry 'bout again!
Deep inside the lair, you'll get quite a scare!
Best is yet t'come! We'll just have to make a run for,
Treasures all abound, everywhere around,
Puzzle-solving is-a-calling lots of Jiggies to be found!
Freezeezy Peak and Rusty Bucket Bay
Bubblegloop Swamp are just the ones today.
Tomorrow Mad Monster Mansion and Clanker's Cavern too!
The day after that I'll go to Click Clock Wood with you 'n
Up Mumbo's Mountain then, through Gobi's Valley and,
Finally Treasure Trove Cove and that's just the start 'cuz
Right 'round the corner there's lots of other places to,
Explore 'n that's what the week'll be like 'fer you,
and me and we're happy!
So that's how we spend our days!
Nothin's gonna change our ways!
