Song: "Blue Jacket" by Blanket Barricade (WK Music Productions)
This is the official video for Blanket Barricade’s popular whimsical instrumental “Blue Jacket”.
The song, inspired by Ennio Morricone’s style of writing, utilizes finger snaps, whistling, lively piano, organ, acoustic bass & hand percussion to bring a comical sound to the western genre. The track was recorded in a day in our Vancouver based studio. To date this is the band’s most popular piece and it has been used as fun background music in countless comedy videos, gaming sketches, magic show skits, kid's video games, documentaries & mime performances.

This funny background music for comedy was mixed and mastered by Mike W. with an accent on the bass and treble frequencies to enhance the bouncy cute feeling of the song. The drums & hand percussion are played sparsely with accented hits to add a bit of a random bumbling feel to the song. The jovial piano, plunky bass & folky strummed ukulele create the backbone of the track and these elements are strung together in a loose manner again to accent the humorous nature of the tune. It’s almost as if the instruments are just barely playing in time together but manage to pull it off it in an intentionally silly way. The cute whistling in the second half of the song was performed by Mike W. and recorded in just a few takes. The goofy cheesy sound effect at the end of the instrumental was added as a kind of light humorous send off and is a perfect way of ending a comedic scene of a video or film. The art for this song was drawn by Paige Q. as part of an animation comic style music video and represents a weird dorky robot about to save the world.
