James Duke plays songs on toy keyboards and sometimes his computer helps him with beats. Sometimes Nic Harris helps him by pushing buttons on other toy keyboards. Neither of them know very much about the piano. These are all love songs. Most of them are about girls and boys. Some of them are about being in love with anything.
