The ‘Littlest Butt’ — set to music AGAIN!

This week’s comic features a songwriter character who’s shown up in Wondermark several times.

His preëminent work, however, is clearly the “Littlest Butt”. I have been honored to see this fine masterpiece, this literary juggernaut, be set to ACTUAL MUSIC several times.

First, by Max Martin, who even added his own extra verses:

Then, by Adam Proctor, and also, by Lusipurr (MP3 embeds in this earlier post). Quite different renditions but ALL PERFECTLY LOVELY BUTTMUSIK.

Now, it’s happened again! Here is a KINETIC TYPE rendition by Matt Francis:

Matt also writes:

I saw your comic about the songwriter and his song about wanting the littlest butt on your twitter the other day.

As a wannabe songwriter myself with a few ‘comic’ songs under my belt I felt inspired by your lyrics and put them to some music.

It’s very much a first take special — the bass timing (and the odd note) is a bit out here and there — and the vocals are not a style choice; frankly it was quite late when I recorded them so I had to keep it down a bit.

Hope you like it — and the little joke of my own with the drum part.

Any musical adaptation of any of my comics, PARTICULARLY BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE ONE ABOUT A VERY LITTLE BUTT, I will put on my website. This is a warning and also a promise.

ANIME EXPO ALERT: I will be at Anime Expo in Los Angeles this weekend! Seemed like a good idea at the time. I will be at booth 4018 (listed in the book as TopatoCo) with my pal Sam Logan!
