“Knee Deep in Brackets and Pig Skins”

On this episode of Best Song Ever the Dear LaBenne cousins discuss in great detail March Madness and how their brackets are busted, but Luke seems to not understand exactly what March Madness is.  They also disuss 90’s songs, what their versions of dirty bingo would look like in a new segment called Bingo Talk and they get into sad stories about losing loved ones. Once again house music makes them talk about the good Dr. Himself and his wacky neighbor Wilson, they get into the reverse psychology of sensationalist headlines and the dear cousins tie for winner of the episode and share a cuzzo hug 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.
