Buy your very own Say Anything song! Written for you, about you or anything/anyone you want by Max Bemis of Say Anything! Each song comes with a phone call from Max!
SONG SHOP CURRENTLY CLOSED.
Back in 2008, in an an effort to minimize the gap between music listeners and performers, and to invent a new way for buying music to be worth it for those who can get any album they want for free online, Max came up with a predictably crazy idea in a haze of sleeping medication: to create and record PERSONAL songs for fans of Say Anything and his songwriting.
The process behind buying a Song Shop song is simple. After you buy your song through PayPal, you receive an email where you are directed to a place where you can write a couple paragraphs about anything you want; existential angst, personal tragedy, impending nuptials, grief over a dead dog, fascination with the artist formerly known as Prince (which was a real song shop request, mind you), or just the love you feel for a friend. It can be literally ANYTHING, any story, and/or any emotion you wish to capture in Max’s voice.
Max will deliver an acoustic Say Anything song based on your experiences and what you submitted! Each song is 100 percent written by Max for YOU, the buyer. No two songs will be the same. Songs can also be written for special situations like anniversaries, engagements or birthdays, or be biographical or concerning abstract concepts. Trust us, you can be as weird as you'd like with this. You can also have Max write something based on his own experiences or a completely original creation, but still have it be for you.
Over 4 years since our first trial run, Song Shop has now provided songs for well over 3000 highly satisfied music fans and although Max’s schedule limits the amount of times we can open the Shop, it has become a highly functional project of its own, run in conjunction with Factory 77, who provide customer care for anyone who buys a song.
Song Shop 2012 brought a few new exciting features to our system. We began including a phone call from Max some time after you receive your song with every order. Include a working number with your order and Max will call you up to say hi. If he misses you or you are an international customer, we’ll set up a time when u can call him.
We began offering the option to buy 4 or more half OR full length songs an EP at a ten percent off discount and the option to create a running theme throughout the songs (sort of making it a concept record) or have each song be it’s own thing. If you’re a prospective customer but want to know more about Song Shop, check out our new Frequently Asked Questions, or our new Testimonials section where you see how some of our customers experienced Song Shop.
Song Shop 2013 will be the first year we bring in a much requested new aspect to Song Shop: the involvement of his wife Sherri Dupree Bemis, who sings in Eisley and Perma, her project with Max.
Buyers will now have the option to include Sherri's vocals to spice up any full length song for a fairly minimal amount more.
The Song Shop system in place has been set up by Factory 77 so that if something changes in your life, you’ll be able to make changes to your song description all the way up until Max starts working on your song. The info on how to do this will be sent to you via email after you purchase your Song Shop song. Factory 77 also provides full customer service in case you have a question or concern.
Please be aware that all sales are final. The songs are written in the order received so patience IS a requirement when you buy your song; you may get your song astonishingly quick or it may take a while, so be prepared for either. However, with between 4 and 5 thousand songs written and sent out as of 2013, we can, however guarantee that your song will be extremely special to you and the wait is worth it if you happen to be later “in line”. Many steps are taken by Max and Factory 77 to insure that EVERY SINGLE PERSON who orders a song gets what they paid for.
Once payment has been received, you will receive a message to the email address associated with your PayPal account with instructions on how to submit a ONE or TWO paragraph description about your song. Before you order, it is very important that you make sure that emails from firstname.lastname@example.org aren't landing in your spam folder.

This certificate can be presented at any time -- an anniversary or birthday, for example -- and the full length song will arrive some time later when your place in line comes up.
