The Bran Flakes - I Have A Friend

The Bran Flakes are a collage group led by Otis Fodder and Mildred Pitt. Using samples sourced everywhere from well known popular songs to novelty videos, they create tongue-in-cheek collage pieces that often evolve into richly melodic pop songs of their own. This track, I Have A Friend, heavily samples a television show presented by Fred Rogers called Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, in particular an episode about a short-necked giraffe... The result is an awkwardly sweet ditty about friendship and young love.
