Song To Wear Pants To: Dear Songmaker...

Please make an a capella chant-type song about people who photocopy their body parts (you may wish to focus on the photocopying of the buttocks), with at least 14 layers of your voice...
Songs To Wear Pants To is the website of Andrew Huang, a Canadian musician who turns ANY email request into a song. It doesn’t matter what style is specified, or how bizarre the subject matter Andrew is equal to the task… And he’s pretty prolific too.
In the couple of months since he started offering his talents to the world via his website, he’s already churned out 90 songs-to-spec; responding to such wilfully obtuse briefs as a ska song about “a samurai flying on the back of a giant eagle”, a toilet-flushing-based track, a request for a jello-wiggling anthem, and the afore-mentioned a capella buttock-photocopy number.

(NB: The posted mp3s include recitations of the email requests by voice artist extraordinaire, Jamie Thomson. These will be featured on next Friday's show.)
