A music project started by actor/writer/composer Mark Booker, this is the best of Professor Lafferty. Now, that may be funny to you, but to us, it means a lot. So enjoy the first five tracks from the various styles of music to be heard in the future. Each track will be released with additional music later in 2011.

Professor Lafferty believes this music belongs to you. It's yours. Or everybody's. Additionally, this music is made by people in a basement in a house with people living in it. Not a robot or Will.I.Am. Thank you.


released June 7, 2011

Written and Produced by Mark Booker

Instruments and vocals by Mark Booker
Additional lyrics and vocals by Chris Marsh

Additional drums and drum programming by Chris Marsh

Recorded in The Lab in Omaha, NE by The Professor. Mixed by The Professor, also.

Track Name: As You Dance Around The Room
As you
Dance around the room
To a perfect tune
I don't care
What you're wearing
Or where this goes
Over my head
I suppose

As you dance alone
Afraid of what I know

I used to
Dance around the room
Holding you
That perfect tune
Your thirsty heart
I refuse
Another thing
For me to lose

So I dance alone
Afraid of what I know
Track Name: Laughing Stock
Boom! Like that explode in your face!
Now come on Big C, tell 'em how you felt...
Track Name: Brain Activity
You never lie to me
You never left my side
But I let you down
I made you cry
I didn't understand
What you meant to me
Or what I meant to you
More importantly
But you should know how much
I was in love with you
I know it doesn't make up for
What I put you through
So, now you lie to me
As you walk away
And you don't look back
You say you'll be okay

You keep wanting to start over
Some things change some things just stay the same
I feel my body getting older
I just can't let go
Track Name: A Marginal Victory
And be happy with me
I just wanna laugh
And be happy with you
I just wanna laugh
And be happy with me
