Like all big agencies, we follow the ritual of having a massive annual party celebrating a great year that passed and looking forward to a better one,. The main difference is that ours are really fun and well prepared for.
This year’s dress theme was New York – figure it out! – the night theme was “Late Night Show with Yousef Tuqan Tuqan” – all after a fancy 5 course dinner ofcourse
YTT is the MD, and seriously the show was kick ass.
It featured, besides the traditional monologue and jokes, a Flipperdy game (our version of jeopardy), a top ten signs that you work at flip media, a guest interview, and finally a live performance of the flip song.
I was involved in writing, composing, and recording The Flip Song with Dinesh & Claire, and I think we did well considering the 4 hours turnaround time we had to do it. It was recorded at The Fine headquarters.
Naturally, I played the song live with the guys as well at the party, manning bass for the first time on stage. I really love bass and I am happy I got that experience playing it in a live show.
Dee was on guitars, Claire was on vocals, while drums & keyboards were handled by the pros from JAMBASE band (who we are delivering a website for as a token of appreciation to the great show they put and for fixing my Warlock free of charge)
I promised to feature this song in a previous post so here it goes with the lyrics below it – keep in mind we are in interactive business and the song is about us, so if the lyrics seem technical, do not worry…they are…and if they do not make sense…they were not meant to
