The Funny Music Project launched in January of 2007, and every
year since then, the #1 song of the year on "The Dr. Demento Show"
has been a track which was originally posted to the public at the
Main Page of the FuMP by one of our artists. Well the 8-year
streak continues, as yours truly, the great Luke
Ski, nabbed the #1 spot with my ode to the
concept of arrested development, "Fake Adult"! So huge
thanks to all the fans who requested it all year, all my cohorts
from the FuMP who made appearances in the song, and of course, Dr.
Demento himself! This is the 4th time I've had the #1 song of the
year, and it means the world to me that you all loved one of my
original tunes that much. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
