Proto Marsupial Gurgle Sound From TBTL #1209

TBTL Ten Dana sent over a tip on a Marsupial Gurgle-like sound that Andrew made back on TBTL #1209 at around the 6m 19s mark.

Although it doesn’t exactly has the same punch or uniqueness of the current day Marsupial Gurgle sound, it is along the same lines and thus been named the “Proto Marsupial Gurgle”.

Luke Recites Lyrics from Digital Underground’s “Way We Sing”

Before getting to the actual audio clip of Luke reciting some of the lyrics of Digital Underground’s “Way We Sing” from memory, I wanted to call out what happened right after that.

Once Luke got to the point where he thought he may have missed a section of the song, Andrew piped in to say the following:

Andrew and Luke: “The important thing is, you gave Linh Pham something to do this afternoon. That will be on Marsupial Gurgle.”

What I loved the most out of that was Luke’s laugh and Andrew saying “That will be on Marsupial Gurgle.”

Luke: Laughing

Andrew: “That will be on Marsupial Gurgle.”

Anyway… without further adieu, here’s the clip of Luke reciting the lyrics with and without Andrew’s commentary.

Ringtone: Barabajagal vs Marsupial “Barabajagal” Gurgle

On TBTL #1906, Luke played a mash up of Donovan’s Barabajagal and, what a number of listeners call a “Barabajagal”, Andrew’s Marsupial Gurgle sound. Andrew noted that it would make for a good ringtone.

Since I couldn’t really get a clean version from the podcast, I decided to pull a decent quality version of the song and tried to re-create that mash up.

Happy 1st Birthday to Andrew’s Marsupial Gurgle!

Quick update: Neither Luke or Andrew mentioned it on Tuesday’s TBTL, show #1843. Sigh…
Quick update #2: After a recent taping of Live Wire! Radio, Luke apologized for forgetting to mention it on either show.

One year ago today, TBTL #1583 in a collector’s series was recorded and published to the world; and, in that recording, lurked the sound that would later be described as a “sweet gurgle of an infant marsupial” and thus dubbed, by Luke, the Marsupial Gurgle.

When it came time to christen this website a while back, it was a no-brainer that I had to give it the name of “Marsupial Gurgle” in honor of Andrew and the sweet, sweet sound that he randomly created.

TBTL Ten, Bruce Purkey posted up a Happy Birthday song for Andrew’s Marsupial Gurgle.

Happy birthday Andrew’s Marsupial Gurgle sound!

Clips From Show #1583

Show #1583 is primarily famous for the birthing of the Marsupial Gurgle sound that is site is named after. Before that sound was made, Andrew did make a sound that could very well be considered an ancestor to the Marsupial Gurgle:

Below are the other clip(s) from the show:

Andrew: “I’m happier with my media options”

Andrew: The Marsupial Gurgle Sound

At the 47m 24.519s mark of show #1583, Andrew Walsh made an interesting sound that wasn’t commented on until show #1584. The sound ended up being named both “Marsupial Gurgle” and “Barabajagal“.

As requested by a listener, I have created a clip that puts the Marsupial Gurgle in context of the discussion:

As mentioned, the Marsupial Gurgle sound was not commented on until a listener sent in an e-mail asking what that sound was and described it as  a “sweet gurgle of an infant marsupial”

I have uploaded the first part of the e-mail segment from that show with the listener e-mail, and with Luke and Andrew discussing about it:

And yes, it was Luke that officially christened the name of the sound, “Marsupial Gurgle”:

Luke spent some of his spare time creating a few Marsupial Gurgle remixes.

Andrew then attempted to recreate the Marsupial Gurgle sound on show #1584:

The attempted recreation sounds somewhat close to one of the sounds Strong Bad makes in “The System is down”:
