In the Woods

Comedic singer-songwriter Happy Ron – aka Ronald Hill – recently attended a weeklong “How Music Really Works” seminar/retreat in Canada.

“On one of the last days,” says Hill, “I had the opportunity to perform my song ‘All She Needs Is a Spankin’,’ and I was a bit concerned that people might be offended by the rude lyrics, especially this one serious-looking lady.”

(Sample lyric: “Something no man would give her/ Something that made her quiver/ A little smack on the butt/ And she’ll no longer be a nut.”)

“After I finished, the lady I was worried about jumped up and said, ‘I teach this kinda stuff, does anyone want a spanking demonstration?’ I told her that I’m generally the spanker, not the spankee, but a braver man than I volunteered to be the spankee, and suddenly this serene mountain paradise was transformed into a bizarre class in spanking. It went on for ten more minutes!

“The leader of the group turned to me and said, ‘Your songs sure have an interesting impact on people.’ It wouldn’t have been so funny if these were a bunch of swinger types, but they were all fairly typical, normal people who suddenly threw an impromptu spanking party in the woods.”

Happy Ron’s upcoming album Terribly Happy includes his ode to spanking as well as “The No Tantric Woman Blues,” “Sick of Her S**t,” and “Dickless Wonder.” He appears Tuesdays at Cosmos Coffee Cafe in La Mesa.

PRESS RELEASE – HAPPY RON (AND FRIENDS) TO RELEASE “TERRIBLY HAPPY” IN OCTOBER 2008

The Happy Man’s music has been described by Songsalive.com as a cross between Frank Sinatra and South Park. Others describe it as Punk-Blues Comedy Music. The San Diego Union Tribune has described the Happy Man’s music and “act” as “intentional unintentional comedy” Jessie Johnson says it’s "The only real music to come out in the last 10 years, this is some real sh*t man!" One of his major goals is to appear as himself as a cartoon character on South Park and sing some of his songs. The Happy Man has lived in San Diego all his life and his hope is to die in San Diego. He never sang a note until he was thirty and didn’t get “seriously” into music until he was forty. He was played 500 shows since then and to celebrate his 44rth birthday he will be releasing his first real album, backed by no less then twenty-two people, including some of the best musicians and singers in San Diego. Also included are The Pacific Coast Horns (Formerly The Uptown Horns), horn players on James Brown's "Living In America" and The B-52s' "Love Shack”. Produced by local music guru Sven-Erik Seaholm. The songs are all original songs with a comedic bent with a few exceptions. The goal is always to write and perform good SONGS, not just funny words with little thought to the music behind:
