“Bogart This Bad Boy”
On this episode of Best Song Ever the Dear Cousins LaBenne talk about 420, Hitler’s birthday and, of course, Harry Potter. They dive headfirst into the wonderful world of Kanye West’s Twitter account and read aloud some of their favorites. Also, they share stories about their dads, maps, being dependent on technology and how the ONLY thing you should be using Facebook and Twitter for is to promote the Best Song Ever Podcast. Luke shares a personal story about his mild elementary school bullying experience and educates us all on The Game’s Facebook habits. They also talk about broken systems, commercialism vs. artistic integrity and the over saturation of mediocrity 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.
