I've been hooked on JoCo's stuff for yea about a month now. Free distribution of songs is a revolutionary marketing model, where people can pay however much they think a song is worth the priviledge of listening to. If you like his stuff, please donate to help keep him going.

And writing a song a week every week for a year rediculously challenging.. I don't know how he retained his sanity.

There was just a great interview with him on "The Sound of Young America" radio show

Every party I've DJ'd has given an uproariously joyful reaction when I put on Coulton's versions of "Baby's Got Back" or "Bills Bills Bills." Not only are they funny, but they are quite great covers as well.

My family loves Code Monkey. Great for tech geeks.

I just met Jonathan when he was in Milwaukee and bought his THING A WEEK-- TWO cd. It's great! Definitely worth checking out.

He is great, isn't he? We discovered him recently and my daughter cannot get enough of his "Creepy Doll" song.
