Music from My Movies

Do the Notzilla!

I wrote three songs for the closing credits of my new feature film Notzilla, each in a different early 60s pop style, and each devoted to the national craze set off by an escaped kaiju (giant monster) in Cincinnati, Ohio. The first Dino Surfin’ was a catchy surf number, the second Where Have all the Monster’s Gone? a tender folk ballad.

The last song featured in the film is a classic early 60s dance tune by the girl group Dyna and the Saurelles. Naturally, it features directions on how to do the hot new dance “The Notzilla.” Feel free to sing along and…dance, baby, dance!

(The recording is posted after the lyrics below)

VERSE 1

There’s really nothing to it, honey,

you’ll be on top of it all.

(Come on, baby, do the Notzilla!)

If attitude is altitude

then, honey, you’re ten storeys tall!

(Come on, baby, do the Notzilla!)

CHORUS

Just life up your tail and let out a pop.

You just can’t fail to do a little hop.

Then throw up your claws, and do it some more.

Dramatic pause – Now roar!

(Get your roar on!)

VERSE 2

Your fins, they look like paper dolls,

your zipper comes up to your neck.

(Come on, baby, do the Notzilla!)

But, honey, you’re original,

a one-dinosaur discotheque

(Come on, baby, do the Notzilla!)

Repeat CHORUS

This recording was produced by Steve Goers, the composer of Notzilla’s score, and performed by Adia Dobbins.

  3. Haha! Oh, that takes me back! The question for this 78-year-old body is, “Can I do the Nozilla and not wind up at the chiropractor with a back or hip out of joint?” Moderation might be key, but then is it really dancing the Nozilla?

    This will be a good opportunity to let out a laugh on a day when I have a little bit of the blues.
    I wish I could attach a gif to this comment. I’d share my “Batman Dancing.” So, like, just imaging a goofy Batman. “Holy Giant Monsters, Batman!”
    Thanks for sharing your creativity and wisdom, and humor.
