“The Cat Scratch Fever is Pulsing Through My Veins”
On this episode of Best Song Ever: the Dear Dear LaBenne cousins talk about the Academy Awards and Luke declares that he won Best Caster In a Leading Role, which isn’t even a real thing. Luke takes shots at the NRA and Ted Nugent and is rewarded with LITERAL Cat Scratch Fever, which at least allowed him to meet a cool doctor. The War of Duets takes a temporary cease fire, although Brian parades one in front of Luke just because he can. Luke and Brian also talk about their favorite Matt Berninger collaborations as well as positive and encouraging music and saying you’re sorry when you kill bugs. Will Luke turn into a were-cat? Find this out and so much more all while they play the eight best songs you’ll hear all week!
Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever. Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.
