The basic details are all here, but if you know some fun facts on these tracks, you should add them.

Bushes and Marshmallows is an album by C418 released in 2009 containing various songs he created for no particular reason.[1]

Ironically, contrary to what the title may suggest, this album has little to do with C418's blog Bushes and Marshmallows (his English translation for the blog's German name Blödsinn am Mittwoch). In fact, it was the first album released by C418 to not originate entirely on the BAM blog, although several tracks do find their origins there.

Official descriptions

Bushes and Marshmallows was an album that was at the cusp of me starting work on Minecraft. It’s an eclectic mess of tongue-in-cheek songs that really have no other reason existing but because I wanted to make random stuff.

Another thing I recall is the name of the album. Bushes and Marshmallows was my english translation to a blog I used to host, called “Blödsinn am Mittwoch,” which translates into “silliness on Wednesday.” On that blog I created some piece of music every Wednesday, even if I had no time. It helped me get better at making music, and get better at making mediocre music under pressure, haha.

Now, Bushes and Marshmallows doesn’t really have anything to do with the blog, but I guess I just wanted to sort of memorialize the name like that. Bushes and Marshmallows. Blödsinn am Mitwoch. BaM. Bam.

I believe i can fly, fly
Through the sky, very high
Yeah, they go, go go,
I believe he can go so high

What does any

I believe i can fly, fly (he believes he can fly, fly)
Through the sky, very high (through the sky, very high)
Yeah, they go, go go (yeah, they go, go go,)
I believe he can go so high (I believe he can go so high)

Trivia

  • I believe I can fly is a parody on the song I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly.
  • C418 was once offered 100$ to make an uncensored version of the track.
I believe I can fly is not all that special, it’s just a dumb joke on lyrics. However someone told me they’d give me a hundred bucks if I ever release a version without the censorship. I never ended up doing that. Well, if I ever am short on cash, I’ll remember that.

Noo!
—C418, Bandcamp
Yes is a remix project. One of those where, like, famous artists ask you to remix their work and give you their stems. I kinda didn’t use any of their stuff in any way they wanted to, and I also never heard back from them. I don’t even remember who it was.

Höre is an improv piece where pretty much everything has been recorded in real time. I do not know why I decided to put in the “do a barrel roll sample.” I think this piece turned out quite great though. Except for said sample.

  • Höre is the longest track of Bushes and Marshmallows.
