"Monster on the Campus" is a fun play on the 1958, Jack Arnold directed, sci-fi classic of the same name. "I loved this movie as a kid," Lee Chabowski said. "It was constantly played on Sunday afternoons." And what better way to pay homage to your childhood nostalgia than to put it into song.

Centered on a dare by a longtime fan, Marian Call penned a playful wake-up song for astronauts. At the heart of this cheery song, Call incorporates the spirit of the album by moving beyond the studio and including those that helped fund her album; the fans who sang, whistled, and added doo doot doot doo's. "So many different sounds wanted to be added that a lot happened in my own home, in the homes of friends, on impulse after shows, in all sorts of different cities," Call said. "It truly is a mass choir from all over the country, each voice is individual." Download "Good Morning Moon" now!
