As per Tom Smith’s Wikipedia: “Smith has written songs in many musical moods and styles, from dramatic to silly to romantic, and from operatic to hip-hop to Klezmer. In performance, he tends towards comedy folk-rock, usually with many references to films, literature, popular culture and politics, frequently using puns.

His nickname, “The World’s Fastest Filker”, comes from numerous instances of “instafilk”, i.e., quickly-written or improvised songs. He has improvised entire concert sets, and his album Badgers and Gophers and Squirrels Oh My: The 24-Hour Project, inspired by Scott McCloud’s 24-Hour Comics Day, features seventeen songs written in twenty-four hours. In May 2006, he released the album The Last Hero on Earth, a comic opera which has twenty songs, all written in one day, to the same plot.

In August 2006, emulating Jonathan Coulton’s Thing a Week, he began iTom, a project where he released a new song every week for a year, and continued sporadically after that. So far, he has collected four albums of those songs.

The second iTom collection is a crazed and eclectic mix of brand-new songs, mostly on the subject of change and transition — from being awake to being asleep, from Republican control of Congress to Democratic, from your S.O. leaving to your self-image leaving, from how much you want to grow up to how much you want to stay a child. Includes the bonus track “An Ecclesiastes For Rose”, about the transition between the ninth and tenth Doctors.
 This self-published album has been autographed. It came to us without an insert, so we have provided one because like it’s older sibling it was self-conscious being naked. Songs written and recorded Nob. 2006-Jan. 2007 . Seal for its protection, sold as-is.
