This song helped me through a dark period of my association with furry fandom (when burned furs were ripping through the fandom). I don't think it's an exaggeration to say it helped keep me in the fandom. The author, Sayh, visited Brisbane once. I didn't get to tell him how much that silly little song meant to me, but I at least did get him to sign my copy of Furry Fantasies 2, which has another song of his on it.

MP3 is a very good format, but it has overshadowed other worthy sound formats. Many of you may not know how to play XM files. For Mac OS X users, I recommend CocoModX. I don't recommend anyone use Windows, but XePlayer claims to play them. Linux users probably already have one pre-installed with their distribution, but they can try NMP.

EDIT: Er, I just noticed that Roo Tool isn't available on FMF at present. :( Because I really want people to hear this song, I have put it here. Apologies to the composer if he no longer wants this distributed.

I love MOD files. On Windows, I use XMPlay or Modplug Player, but Winamp seems to come with a good mod player with good XM/S3M-support.

This a cute, hoppy track! I like it!

Thanks for saying this, it always means so much to hear what my music can mean to someone. Different from the furry artists that gets half a ton of comments on one drawing, music rarely get much at all, yet music is so important to us.

I don't have much faith in myself as a composer, I never think my music could mean much to anyone, so it really means a lot to hear things like this. Thanks *flufflehug*.

How I miss the Warm Australian Winters. *puffs and watches the snow melt away way too slowly*

Coming back years later and reading this again, it helps give me confidence now that I have decided to start making music again.

I am for most on furafinnity now, name is still Sayh.

Very nice song. I'm kinda glad you decided to post about this because I kinda need a life about now since I'm probably going to be going through a bit of a down time in my life.

By the way, winamp handles XM just fine for windows.
