“A Couple of Dunces”
On this episode of Best Song Ever the Dear LaBenne Cousins talk about missing Record Store Day and the Space Jam Soundtrack. They discuss the advantages of E-Coli vs. Old Analog Coli and get into classic Timeloop Movies like Groundhog’s Day, 25 Christmases and the Family Man (or is it the Weather Man.) There is a lot of talk about pop music from the early aughts and we find out 11 year old Luke loved the Black Eyed Peas’ song “Where is the Love.” The dudes then get in on some Girl Talk and discuss their cankles and kagels as well as Melanie and Obama laughing at a funeral. Brian tries to convince Luke to watch the show Riverdale, but Luke is not having it. They also share stories about musical A.D.D., come up with Dave Matthews Band pickup lines and most exciting of all talk about the different kinds of lettuce they like to consume 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.
