When Alix visited me in New Jersey, she concocted the idea that Remy and I start a band. “But we can’t sing,” I protested. She responded to this declaration by sending me a mix CD entitled “People Who Are Terrible Singers Vol. 1.” And so, emboldened by this mix, I wrote a song on the ukulele to celebrate today, her 25th birthday. Remy helpfully lent his vocal and guitar talents to the cause, and the family band was thus created!
And so I present to you Alix and the Mimmses’ first hit single “Age Quarter Century,” set to a familiar tune. Follow along with the lyrics here.
Happy birthday, Alix!
