I played a lot of Explosions In The Sky before the show started because it's pretty.
Things my sister introduced me to over break: Joanna Newsom's "Inflammatory Writ," The xx's "Crystalised," Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros's "Home," Garfunkel and Oates' "Worst Song Medley", Fanfarlo's "Ghosts", The Hood Internet, Cat Power's "Dreams" cover.
Let us talk about the excellence of "Worst Song Medley" by Garfunkel and Oates.
Well, first, let's talk about Garfunkel and Oates.
Kate Micucci (Stephanie Gooch, the ukulele player on Scrubs) and Riki Lindhome (the flower girl on Pushing Daisies) have a band called Garfunkel and Oates, which is incredible. Check out their website for more ridiculously funny songs.
Anyway, their Worst Song Medley is hysterical to anyone who lived through the music of the nineties.
These songs, in their glory, are featured in the tune:
1. "I Love You Always Forever" by Donna Lewis
2. "I Don't Want To Wait "by Paula Cole
3. "Too Close" by Next
4. "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None The Richer
5. "I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Badd
6. "Barbie Girl" by Aqua
7. "Breakfast At Tiffany's" by Deep Blue Something
8. "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson
9. "Cotton Eyed Joe" by Rednex
10. "Rush, Rush" by Paula Abdul
11. "I'll Be Missing You" by Diddy
12. "Drops of Jupiter" by Train (last line)
