"Soft Rocked By Me" is a song on Jonathan Coulton's sixth album, Thing a Week Three.


"Soft Rocked By Me" was released as the thirty-fifth Thing a Week on June 6th, 2006. Jonathan has said that as this song was written, he found the idea of "soft rocking" went from funny to creepy and sad.[1]

Live Performance[edit]

"Soft Rocked By Me" is occasionally played at Jonathan Coulton concerts. During performances co-billed with Paul and Storm, Jonathan performs "Soft Rocked By Me" with them. Jonathan performs the lead vocals, accompanied by his guitar, while Paul and Storm join in on the chorus. Occasionally, the three will break into a medley of actual soft rock hits, such as Fields of Gold and Telephone Line. See the list of soft rock medley songs for a working list of songs included in the medleys. Later live performances of the songs dropped the third verse, ending the song instead with the soft rock medley.



"Soft Rocked By Me" is currently only available for purchase in the Jonathan Coulton MP3 Store as an individual track or as part of Thing a Week III. Of course, this song is also included as part of the "Everything" playlist.

Downloadable FLAC versions of the above are available in the Jonathan Coulton FLAC Store.


"Thing a Week III" is available for purchase as a CD here.

Other versions[edit]

A karaoke version of "Soft Rocked By Me" is available on the Jonathan Coulton Karaoke Store.

“Soft Rocked By Me” appeared in Season 2, Episode 8, “Alex & Paul,” of Bravo’s The Millionaire Matchmaker television show. One of the reality show’s participants performs the song on stage in a night club. Only parts of the song are aired.
