Flea Market Song
I wrote this song for Furuset skoles musikkorps and Haugen skolekorps, for their flea market Fall 2007. The idea was to let all the musicians in the band dress up in flea market clothing, and to just have some fun. Everyone seemed to enjoy taking part in this. And singing the Flea Market Song while parading in the streets was a great way of letting people know about the flea market taking place.
